Diplo on Justin Bieber: 'He has that weird gene where he's good at everything'
Super producer and hitmaker Diplo has revealed that Justin Bieber's massive personal fortune can be as much of a hindrance as it is a blessing.
During a recent interview with the Rolling Stone, the 'Where Are Ü Now' sensation confessed that being very rich as a kid often means that people can sometimes turn into 'jerks' but not always, so he doesn't concern himself with Bieber's personal life and instead focuses on their creative relationship as collaborators:
"Bieber's personal life is whatever it is -- he's a rich kid, but he's respectful to me, and he has that weird gene where he's good at everything: better at basketball than me, better at drums. For us it's more like an art project where you utilise his voice."
Earlier this month, Diplo spoke to Capital FM about the young Canadian heartthrob and admitted that he's a fantastic singer who people pay attention to:
"Justin’s a polarising figure so no matter what we do, you’re going to have to pay attention to it and if we can make something amazing that like everybody can love -pop fans, people who are critics, people who are into rap music... If we can get a whole across the board crowd excited about the record then we have achieved something."
