Taylor Swift is very strategic with her friends and enemies. And I know lots of secrets. I can’t divulge, but I know a lot of stuff about her. And I’m scared. I’m scared for my life.” Diplo noted to GQ.

He also called out Swift’s fans as “really crazy,” recalling how followers reacted to his Kickstarter joke. “They threatened to murder me and stuff,” he claimed. “It’s really bizarre, and disgusting. They’re the worst people in the world.” See some of the crazy things Taylor’s fans have done for her.

The DJ said he liked Swift’s music, too, but not to that extreme. “Yeah. And I’m a pretty big fan,” he revealed. “But they’re like ‘I wish your kids had Down syndrome.’ They’re so evil. 

As for Taylor? “I think Taylor Swift is such an impactful character,” he noted of the 1989 hitmaker, 25. “That it was because she was involved that it became really big.”
