Dear God, Katy Perry has been linked to some real winners. Between marrying Russell Brand, shacking up with John Mayer and actually going on a date with Riff Raff, she’s really killing the game. Well, now apparently she’s got a new man on the scene, and that’s Diplo.
If you don’t know much about Diplo, never fear – no one really does. He worked some of MIA’s earliest stuff and even dated her, though that didn’t end too well. He’s gotten in a fight with Azealia Banks (who hasn’t?) and more importantly, is one half of Major Lazer, who make some pretty decent tunes sometimes. That’s about where my knowledge ends. But Katy Perry’s knowledge apparently goes much, erm, deeper (that was awful – forgive me).
On Thursday, the singer, 29, and the L.A.-based producer and DJ, 35, went to dinner at the Marlton Hotel in New York City. Then they headed to the Amazing Spider-Man 2 after-party at Skylight at Moynihan Station. “They were very affectionate, very lovey-dovey” at the bash, a source says. And when they weren’t “all over each other,” the source continues, “they were constantly looking at each other.” As they departed, “they quickly separated. She didn’t want it to look like they were together, but they were.”
On Friday night, Perry, sporting long black hair and bangs, attended a birthday party at 1Oak. Diplo performed. On Saturday, Perry saw Neil Patrick Harris on Broadway in the new production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
Perry and Diplo had kept a low profile since the first Coachella weekend, when the green-haired songstress “enjoyed” his company, according to another source. “They were hanging out all [Saturday] night at the Jeremy Scott party – and they hung out all day Sunday at Coachella. They checked out Alesso together,” the source said.
I mean, cool… but maybe they’re just friends? I mean, BJ Novak is in the picture above – is Katy dating him, too? Lord almighty. If this is happening, fair enough, but not everyone is dating everyone else and it’s okay!
