Diplo Was Criticized On Twitter After Posting Bad R. Kelly Joke

This post was originally published on this site

Diplo found himself facing an onslaught of negative comments on Twitter after he posted a joke on July 18 about wanting to join R. Kelly’s alleged “sex cult.” “Low key sent my cv for r kelly sex cult membership,” Diplo tweeted out. It wasn’t before long that BuzzFeed published an article accusing R. Kelly of

Diplo has blessed the world with a second Twitter account and it is internet gold

This post was originally published on this site

Diplo takes his “random white dude be everywhere” mantra very seriously. He’s continually diversifying his portfolio, he’s aligned with some of pop music’s most veritable forces, and he’s got a keen social media game. In fact, between Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter, Wes is always on the grid, and his ability to use 140 characters has, over time, become the stuff of legend.

Now, in promotion of his new Viceland feature, What Would Diplo Do?, starring celebrity doppelgänger James Van Der Beek, the Mad Decent head honcho has launched an alternate (verified) Twitter account, and it is exactly what the people of 2017 deserve.

Covering topics including La Croix, SoundCloud’s ongoing media circus, Mozart, chilling, and other “Diplo-esque” subjects, the new Twitter account is essentially just a “Best of Diplo on Twitter” highlight reel, apparently helmed by Van Der Beek himself. If you do one thing on Twitter this week, follow this account — you will not be disappointed. 

What Would Diplo Do? premieres  Thursday, August 3, on Viceland.

Martin Garrix enters modeling as the face of Armani’s Fall 2017 campaign

This post was originally published on this site

Martin Garrix is a model now, and our biggest question is,”Why didn’t this happen sooner?”

Today it was announced that the Dutch producer will be the face of Armani Exchange’s 2017 fall collection. In an statement emailed to Billboard, Garrix said the following of his new endeavor:

“I am very thankful and very happy with how everything turned out…To me, Armani Exchange is elegant, but its also ahead of the curve. The clothing I was wearing for the campaign shoot, I would wear all of the time, because it’s comfy, super refreshing, unique, but still elegant and classic.”

Armani announced the collaboration via their socials today, July 17, further teasing some imagery from the upcoming campaign. Garrix will be modeling alongside Cara Delevingne, who is currently the female face for the brand. It seems as if Garrix is as natural of a model as he is as a producer, so it was only a matter of time before the producer took over Diplo’s reign as the next producer turned model.

Looking forward to discovering the faces of the new #axfw17 campaign? Stay tuned!
