Last year, Lil Dicky released his problematic collab with Chris Brown, “Freaky Friday.” Now, the joke-rapper is setting his sights on climate change. Thursday morning, he went on Ellen to tease a video for a new song called “Earth.” Dicky said the video features 30 of the biggest stars in the world — … More »
Lil Dicky paid a visit to Ellen DeGenres on April 18 to promote and preview his forthcoming song and accompanying music video, “Earth.” He tells DeGenres that the animated video features a star-studded cast, including the voices of Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, and more.
“It’s all about saving the earth,” Lil Dicky tells DeGenres. “There’s an environmental crisis going on right now. When I started making the song, I didn’t know the facts at hand, but we have 12 years to completely change the way we do so many things on Earth or the damage is irreversible.”
Proceeds from sales of the song will go toward Leonardo DiCaprio’s foundation, which will work with Lil Dicky to help and protect the sustainability of our planet.
“Earth” premieres at midnight Friday, April 19 on YouTube.
“HAVE U EVER SEEN A BITCH PLAY FLUTE THEN HIT THE SHOOT?” It was a reasonable question. It was also a relevant question because it accompanied footage of the woman who posed it doing just that: first busting out an accomplished flute solo and then breaking into 2018’s biggest viral dance craze with her backup … More »
It doesn’t happen often enough, but every once in a while, an artist will turn a routine TV performance into something special. One of those times was this morning. Last last year, the R&B singer Teyana Taylor, whose K.T.S.E. album was probably the most underrated thing to come out of the whole Kanye … More »
It takes real talent to create a song based on the premise that Chris Brown is the man and end up with something likable. For three minutes and 36 seconds — or 5:21 if you’re watching the music video, as more than 57 million people have so far — that’s the illusion “Freaky Friday” successfully … More »
Most nights you can probably count on Diplo to be jetting into Vegas, likely counting his cash while eating caviar. Though on his less adventurous evenings, the megastar producer can be caught having himself a good old fashioned house party in the Hollywood hills, though any house party the Mad Decent head throws is likely doomed before it begins. This one was unfortunately no different. After two separate noise complaints, Wes had to send his pals Lil Dicky and company packing after police were forced to shut the scene down around 11:30pm.
Authorities first responded to Diplo’s house around 10pm, requesting that the crowd of people in attendance remain inside, and that the music be turned down. Diplo, who turns his music down for no one, kept the party going until the police returned later in the evening. However, no citations were issued once the party ended. Despite this, treatment of Diplo here seems slightly unfair considering James Murphy supposedly once got away with having Daft Punk play at his own house.
Let Diplo Live.
