Diplo David Guetta DJ Snake

This week (beg09May16) Guetta, 48, released a track titled This One's For You, which also acts as the official song of the UEFA Euro 2016 international soccer tournament.

However Diplo, 37, who with his group Major Lazer teamed up with DJ Snake, 29, for their 2015 hit Lean On, took to Twitter to call out the French musician for alleged similarities.

After Snake and Diplo sent a series of Tweets, since deleted, dubbing Guetta's song a "Fake" version of Lean On, Diplo made his feelings clear with a tweet he left on the social media site which read, "I respect my elders but when they straight jack us its clap back season."

Ellie Goulding Calvin Harris Diplo

The Burn singer has worked with her good pal on tracks I Need Your Love and Outside, and she revealed they had teamed up for another song when she sent a message into The Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw for the DJ's interview on Friday (29Apr16).

Ellie informed Nick that Calvin was being secretive about what was happening with their next collaboration, so Nick read out Ellie's message, saying, "Can you ask him when our next song is going to be ready, slash, out?"

Calvin reacted awkwardly to the question, insisting they hadn't even finished the track yet so Ellie needs to come back into his studio to work on it.

Electronic Music Awards Postponed


Diplo Calvin Harris

Top DJs including Diplo, Calvin Harris and Skrillex were set to be celebrated at the inaugural prizegiving ceremony on 23 April (16), but the awards show is now slated to take place in the autumn (16).

"As this is the first year of the awards, we have the luxury of flexibility, which we are taking advantage of to decide the optimal timetable to present the awards," a representative tells Billboard.com. "With this opportunity, we felt that it would better to represent the electronic music calendar in the fall rather than the spring."

Veteran DJ Paul Oakenfold founded the ceremony as part of his Electronic Music Awards and Foundation.

The DJ and producer documented his night in the recording studio on Wednesday (30Mar16) via popular mobile app Snapchat, and making an unexpected appearance in one of his shared videos was Fifth Harmony star Camila.

In one clip, the singer plays a cover of Tracy Chapman's Fast Car on guitar, and in another, she stands at a microphone whisper-singing "Major Lazer", the name of Diplo's electronic music group.

The collaboration comes nearly a year-and-a-half after Diplo sparked an online feud with Camila's good friend Taylor, suggesting someone should "make a kickstarter to get Taylor Swift a booty."

The 37-year-old hit headlines when he posted a suggestive message on Twitter.com, which read: "Someone should make a kickstarter to get taylor swift a booty."

Lorde quickly jumped to the Shake It Off singer's defence, slamming Diplo by writing, "@Diplo should we do something about your tiny penis while we're at it hm (sic)."

Anna Kendrick Linked To Diplo

The Pitch Perfect star tends to keep her love life out of the spotlight, though she sparked engagement rumours with cinematographer boyfriend Ben Richardson in August (15), when she strolled around New York with a ring on her finger. However the pair haven't been snapped since the summer, nor has the ring.

Diners at Craig's restaurant in LA claim to recently have seen Anna enjoying a meal with DJ Diplo, whose ex is popstar Katy Perry.

"Skrillex was there too, but he was definitely a third wheel," a source told America's OK! magazine, adding the pair looked "super flirty".
