Diplo Bashes Zedd's 'Fake Relationship' With Selena Gomez

Diplo is taking shots at Selena Gomez and Zedd‘s relationship.

“I’m actually not enemies with Zedd by any means. I just think that he came from such a cool place, and now he’s been pegged as a money-maker for a major label to do EDM, which to me isn’t even a genre. But they’ve pegged him for that, they’ve marketed him, even the fake relationship with Selena Gomez, all the things to sell records took away from the music,” the 36-year-old DJ shared to Radio.

Diplo added, “He’s an amazing producer and good songwriter. He’s got a really loud space right now in this culture, there are a lot of people paying attention to him, he can do this awesome music, and to just come out with something so flat and expected and easy for people… You only live once, you know what I’m saying?”

Diplo‘s comments come as a surprise since he and Zedd seemed like they were getting along just fine in February.

    Diplo is 100% true. Zedd and Selena had a fake PR relationship to sell the single. Since Selena only climbed the charts twice in her 5 year music flop career. And Zedd nearly got noticed for his work, until he started marketing himself.

  • javi g

    first they never said that they were dating that was media speculation. also its not selena’s fault that the label created that relationship. diplo is blaming the wrong people here. he should blame the label not selena or zedd.

    i was pretty sure it was all fake from the beginning. there are rumors that Zedd likes dudes and it was just done to promote their song.

  • skateboard p

    lmao how is diplo gonna take shots at zedd for going mainstream when he has a song with ariana grande……..

  • mel

    In 5 years she sold 25 million of records. Not in a big pop start level but that’s still something 90% of music industry dream with.

  • mel

    But he is blaming the label. You fail in text interpretation

  • Ause Ekel

    They can be fake but they look cute at least hahaha

  • http://thelastword.yuku.com/ The Last Word

    Why so pressed Diplo?

  • FlakesofSunlite

    I really liked Zedd’s songs in the Divergent soundtrack and with Arianna Grande. They were really great songs after his debut with the Paramore lead singer.

  • sl

    Selena Gomez And Zedd’s ‘Fake Relationship! I’m disappointed that they deceived their fans for the love of money and ratings. Miss Drama & Mr. perfect man’s “true colors” are showing.

  • sl

    All Selena and Zedd had to do was say NO! No one
    twisted their arms. They had new music and it would have been OK without the fake photos, holding hands on the red carpet, and meaningful messages.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    his debut with the Paramore

  • javi g

    i don’t know but hanging at some award and then not being seen together for month dosen’t count as dating or having a relationship. but if i was zedd i would have kicked that famewhore and wannabe edm artist diplo’s behind. diplo said that they where friends. what happened?.is he jealous of zedd’s success?

  • FlakesofSunlite

    Who cares if Zedd’s and Selena’s relationship was fake. They looked so adorable.

  • Ands Va

    lol @ ur ‘rumors’, dipshit is the one with eyez4guyz, but who cares anyway.thing is, dipshit said zedd’s music was generic, even though it’s his pretty much trademark usual sound – and it’s pretty good, meanwhile laser’s ‘music’ has the most retarded sound and esp lyrics, plus he gets publicity by talking shit about people more talented than him. at least they put in effort in the spectacle, that is if it’s fake at all, what does dipshit do? nothing. just gets more desperate and ugly everyday. he’s pathetic, why can’t people ignore such garbage and promote real talents?

  • Ands Va

    what?

  • Ands Va

    right?

  • Ands Va

    it’s more than that.at the beginning his music was copied and mimicked certain underground artists, but what easier sounding, kinda trashy and it made him popular, but he wanted to be ‘tabloid popular’, so now his ‘music’ is full on trash, and the only cred it has pretty much comes from the people he collabs with, like skrillex, snake, and gets popularity because of ariana, bieber 2chainz etc
    meanwhile zedd is a new suprstar, he’s like calvin but les pop, more idea driven, although still popularand without much effort to please or annoy anybody. that makes dipshit so frustrated, his limited talents can’t bring the same fame lol

  • Ands Va

    he doesn’t, but u fail. it’s a backhanded stab at zedd, even if u don’t get it. and who cares about dipshit anyway… zedd is the man, almost up there with calvin,on his way at least, while this moron is slipping haha

  • Ands Va

    they banged and hung out a little publicly, whats fake there? yo boi dipshit is a loser and keeps on losing, pretty soon even bieber won’t be able to help

  • SideEye

    Diplo talks to much shit to be a grown ass man

  • sl

    It was reported and documented that Zedd and Selena passionately kissed during a meal at their Benihana lunch date in Atlanta. Fake kissing to go with their fake relationship how ironic. Oh, they were just acting. A career as an actor is good.

  • javi g

    reported by who? a tabloid. pictures or didn’t happened. thats what i say. also diplo is jealous of zedd. because zedd is moving up. the kid is good.

    Selena Gomez is not a solo artist as you can tell by the album name, Selena Gomez & The Scene. Their first album, Kiss & Tell was released September 29, 2009 and debuted #9 on Billboard by selling 66,000 copies in its first week. Selling 66,000 copies in your debut week even though you are a lead actress of a Disney show that had endless promotion for this album AND on top of that was dating Nick Jonas at the peak of his fame – is pretty weak; in other words, pretty much flopping. This album got endless promotion if you are unaware, and it still flopped. Radio Disney premiered multiple songs from the album. Then later on, a different station premiered all the songs from the album. The group also performed two songs at an event in Mexico and then went on to perform on PopCon with Justin Bieber. They also performed at various televised events like Dancing With The Stars in which Selena Gomez got criticised for her poor vocals. The album also got even more endless promotion and yet still flopped. Maybe people didn’t want to buy it because of the excessive use of auto-tune? They also had a tour to promote the concert in which I will get into later. Point is: they had excessive promotion so there’s no reason the album should have done poorly. Lets get into the singles on the album. Falling Down was the lead single of the album. It first charted #93 on Billboard and then peaked at #82. It didn’t get any sort of certification even though it got various kinds of promotion. I guess charting on Billboard is.. good enough? Naturally was the second single from the album and it peaked #29 on Billboard. Weak chart but hey! the song is certified platinum. Hooray, finally a real accomplishment after all the endless promotion the album and song got and maybe, just maybe Nick Jonas’ name being mentioned one too many times had something to do with this accomplishment. By the way, Selena Gomez only co-written one song on this album called “I Won’t Apologize” but please take a look at the basic lyrics and then lets see if anyone has the nerve of telling me or convincing anyone that the song is any good. The album was certified Gold, but I mean that doesn’t really earn Nick Jonas’ ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, the title of “queen” or one who “slays”. Conclusion: The album had zero top 20 singles, and it debuted #9 on Billboard because of low sales. It did not debut #1 in any country. Hashtag flop.

    Selena Gomez is not only a flop as a singer, but as an actress as well. Lets discuss her first movie Ramona & Beezus. It made $27,293,743 worldwide and $1,126,741 of that was internationally. As I recall, Miley Cyrus’ two limited release movies; LOL and So Undercover, were released in just a couple of theater and both movies made more than Ramona & Beezus did internationally. So much Slaylena right? It was ranked #4 daily and ranked #6 on the weekend. Correct me if I’m wrong, but movies are supposed to have increased popularity in the weekend. Regarding the premiere of the movie, barely any celebrities came. Whoops. Moving on to her second movie, Monte Carlo.

    Monte Carlo was released during the Jelena era. Justin Bieber even tweeted to go check it out. PROMO PROMO PROMO is all Selena Gomez saw when she looked at Justin. Just kidding. The movie made $39,667,665 worldwide and was ranked #6. Not impressive. The movie also received a premiere in which no one important cared to attend, but Justin Bieber because the lead star of the movie was his girlfriend. Too bad not even Justin Bieber can convince other people to show mutual interest in a boring movie. Selena Gomez was the lead star but her two other co-stars, Katie Cassidy and Leighton Meester, out shined her.

    @disqus_m7hn3s0Pan:disqus not being a selena gomez fan, you know (worryingly) a lot about her and her career. Maybe you should be focused in making your life matters and stop making others lives look like a flop. Just saying, behind every single celebrity/artist/ famous…there is a REAL PERSON with feelings, dreams, family, flaws, fears etc. What you say about her says much worst about yourself than about her
