In this week's Billboard cover story 35-year-old DJ-producer Wesley Pentz, better-known as Diplo opens up about hanging out with Katy Perry, his much-anticipated upcoming collaboration with Madonna, including a "super weird" track, and his 8-figure lifestyle.
The DJ has recently been photographed with Katy Perry and, while she denies that they are a couple, Diplo lets slip that they hang out, and that "Katy uses Uber when she’s out in L.A., but sometimes a driver tries to take a picture of her."
The 8-figure making superstar DJ and hit-making producer also shares that he lives a suprisingly stripped-down lifestyle, "I don’t even have a house," he says. "A lot of DJs don’t realize they’re here today and gone tomorrow. They’re literally taking jets to every show. It’s crazy how much money they’re spending."
On his upcoming collaboration with Madonna, Diplo says, "I think three are just like amazing, smashes."
"One is super weird. Late one night in the studio we got a little bit drunk and she improvised a little hook and we made a song out of it. I think it’s going to be a breakthrough if she can manage to get everything together and get it out properly."
