Wow, wow, wow, wow, WOW — is it hot in here? ’cause Zayn Malik & Taylor Swift‘s “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” music video dropped last night, and it is all sorts of steamy… and the two never even touch each other! Watch here:
Though you could argue that nothing really happens in the 4 minutes and 14 seconds worth of footage, the vocals are fire, and the undertones are sexy AF, so fans are LOVING it. But not everyone feels that way…

While Diplo doesn’t specifically call out “IDWLF,” he wrote this tweet within two hours of the music video’s release, so you KNOW he’s referencing the Tay track. But a few words to the wise: 1. It’s actually from the 50 Shades Darker soundtrack — you know, the sequel to 50 Shades of Grey — so get your facts straight; we don’t need any ~alternative facts~ up in here. 2. Was that really meant to be a diss? “50 Shades of Grey? More like 50 Shades of POOP… Good one. 3. You can buy more than one album, sweetie.
Naturally, Swifties were quick to point out Katy Perry‘s ex-boyfriend’s obsession with the famed blonde singer:

The last tweet includes a message from Lorde, who came to the defense of T.Swift after Diplo felt the need to tweet, “Someone should make a kickstarter to get taylor swift a booty.” W… T… F??
The one-sided beef appeared to have ended soon after, considering Diplo posted a picture with Tay after the Grammys with the cheeky caption, “Then this happened @taylorswift vs taylor spliff #grammys2015.” Guess not.
Can you believe all these ladies could’ve starred in 50 Shades Darker?
