Katy Perry apparently has a new boyfriend in the form of DJ Diplo, and while it’s all still pretty casual at this point, Diplo’s parents want to “grill” her to determine if she’s good enough for their precious son if it becomes anything more.

From Radar Online:

In an exclusive interview with, Barbara Pentz revealed she can’t wait to meet the stunning songstress. In fact, she’s got big plans for their first meeting!

“He hasn’t mentioned bringing her home to mama just yet. But I think he would before it gets serious,” Pentz said.

“Of course, she’s got to be grilled by the mom!” she added, with a laugh.

“He hasn’t discussed it with me, but he did with his dad,” Pentz revealed. “He said ‘we’re just hanging out. We’re just friends right now.’”

More like, friends with benefits?

Although the pair is already taking their budding romance bicoastal, Diplo’s mom isn’t holding her breath for Perry to meet the parents… yet.

“I don’t think it’s a big deal right now. I don’t think they’ll be wedding bells yet,” she said. “They’re both doing their own things right now and on opposite coasts. He doesn’t seem to be making a big deal about it.”

First of all, this this woman really his mother and did she actually say all this shit? Does he LIKE his parents? Word to parents of famous people: maybe don’t do interviews with celebrity gossip websites? I mean, seriously?
