PREVIEW THE DJ: Diplo’s MySpace
LISTEN: Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” (Diplo Remix)
It was only yesterday when Diplo called out Rihanna for copying M.I.A.’s music video “Boyz”, comparing it to Rihanna‘s “Rude Boy” video. Diplo articulated his outrage in a tweet yesterday: “riri is lookin soo damn hawt in this video but its super boyz boyz boyz #howmaydere ? yahmsayin?” Diplo’s response? He remixed the two songs to point out the similarity in the two songs, even though final product is really annoying to listen to. Nevertheless, it’s hilarious when music superstars use social media to bark about plagiarism.
