Diplo is coming out as “not not gay.”
The 44-year-old DJ and music producer, who has been in high-profile relationships with M.I.A. and Katy Perry, got candid about his same-sex experiences during an appearance on Emily Ratajkowski’s “High Low” podcast.
After discussing various subjects, the topic turned to oral sex as Diplo divulged he’s hooked up with guys despite not being “aroused by men that much.”
“I’m sure I’ve gotten a blow job from a guy before,” he said. “For sure. 100% [percent].”
When pressed by Ratajkowski, the Grammy winner couldn’t recall a specific man-on-man encounter and included an interesting caveat to his admission.
“I’ve gotten a lot of blow jobs, but I don’t know,” he said. “I mean, getting a blow job is not that gay, I think.”
“I don’t know. You tell me?” the Gone Girl star laughingly asked.
While many may want him to define his sexuality, the father of three isn’t putting a specific label on how he identifies.
“I don’t want to define that I’m gay,” Diplo said. “I think the best answer I have is I’m not not gay.”
He also disclosed how there are some men he would consider taking things to the next level.
“There’s a couple guys I could date …life partner-wise,” he added, while noting he’s “more of a vibe guy… over gender.”
News of Diplo’s sexual proclivities got Gay Twitter aroused, to say the least:

This isn’t the first time Diplo has raised eyebrows with possible declarations about his sexuality.
Back in 2019, he was involved in an emergency plane landing and shared with fans that he “might be gay.”
“My jet window just cracked open and the pilots are wearing masks so not sure ill make my shows tonight but they left the wifi on so I’m just going to sit in the back and smoke toad venom and Vlog. I just bought this cool vest in Dallas at a thrift store,” he captioned a set of two photos from inside the plane. “Also i never told you this but I might by gay.”
After getting safely on the ground he updated the post by adding, “we landed and no one died I still might be gay.”
Diplo has two children with Kathryn Lockhart, and one child with former pageant queen Jevon King.
Whether he “might be gay” or “not not gay” or something else, Diplo’s Instagram is definitely worth a peek:
Was I the only one who first thought this article was about building block brand DUPLO had interest in gay sex. Like… What kink would that be?
yes, you were the only one
Why doesn’t he just say “I’ve had first-hand experience with glory holes” and get it over with? I mean, the chances are that it’s a woman on the other side of that hole are like 1 out of 10,000,000….
I am not familiar with him, but he sounds like a bit of an idiot.
A straight adjacent presenting white dude claiming that he’s gotten head from a guy is a rather boring confession at this point. It’s actually borderline gay-panic-y how quick some of these guys are to claim that they’ve gotten some head from a guy but make sure to re-affirm that they’ve never reciprocated, make sure people know that they’ve gotten waaay more head from so many chicks, won’t admit to any anal, won’t admit to any actual gay attractions. It’s all rather dated and boring and comes off like basic “straight kink”, image calculation and ego protection.
I will say that people really need to stop talking about “sexuality” so basically. There are plenty of dudes out here who like messing around with women but don’t get very hard for them. There are quite a few queers males who get hard quicker for chicks or pvssy but have overall homo-leanings. What gets your dick hard and your sexual behaviors are not the only things reflective of your sexual dimensions or preferences. Nor is it reflective of the gender, sexual, affection, romantic, emotion, relationship, commitment spectrum. “Sexuality” viewed in such a basic context is partly why the world is still so hetero dominant and why so many dudes still indulge manipulation or can’t keep it legit real.
Diplo is known for being a creep who has regularly gone after underage chicks. So, I wouldn’t be hyping him up as much as this site (and some of those thirsty dudes on Twitter) are doing.
He sounds like a moron. Getting head from a guy definitely isn’t straight. Just admit you like both or if you are gay, then you’re at an age where you should know who you are attracted to, sorry but true. It just takes some time for some to ADMIT IT.
I’m sure Diplo would have also admitted…although I haven’t sported a big bagel on top of my head, I have sat on a black butt plug doing my taxes and beat some crazy fans off with a two-footed dildo.
I can’t speak for anyone else as none of us can. I am 99% gay tried women in college because they showed me a ton of attention and didnt want to disappoint and we remained friends but I am only attracted to men – gay men. I find mostly straight men to hangup and boring but that is JUST me. to each his own – live and let live
Diplo isn’t gay. He’s just a Dipshit.
My thoughts exactly.
No f***in’ shit, Sherlock!
“not not gay” means gay.
There was a classy way to answer that question…..
And ladies and gentlemen….meet Diplo…..class sold separately.
Always liked Diplo! I’ve long wondered if all the multitudinous new sexual “labels” are just a recapitulation of The Scarlet Letter, the Puritan’s strategy for shaming someone for their private sexual activity – by forcing them to advertise it in public. Like a lot of people, Diplo is probably resistant to wearing a scarlet letter for fear that once it’s sewn on, it’ll be interpreted as a permanent identity – one he’ll be saddled with for eternity.
Except the “Scarlet Letter” was a form of punishment, so you’re equating self-selected identities and identifications, born out of struggle for equality and freedom, with punishment. Do you see the problem with your comparison? I hope so.
Kinda. But then, internalized homophobia can generate all manner of unconscious self-punishment. It’s not just alcoholism, drug addiction, gender dysphoria, unsafe sex and suicidal ideation.
Three kids by two different women? Not that turned on by men? No honey, you’re not gay or bi. By the way, on personality, looks and age alone, you are just past your expiration date so you’re gonna have to settle with the gals and move on. Haaaaaaaarrd pass.
“Past his expiration date…” What the f#*k does that even mean? Just because you’re young and only attracted to other young men doesn’t mean that other men aren’t attracted to mature men. You’ll grow older, you know and you’ll be glad to find this out. I’m in my late 60’s and I’m still active in gay life and don’t find myself “expired” at all.
He’s too late by several years figuring out things if the best he can do is talk about how many blow jobs he’s had.
He may not be gay, but has he asked himself whether he’s a narcissist? The pics and his age might be clues.
Well, he is from Tupelo Ms. and a lot of men there spend all their lives straddling the fence about their sexuallity for most, if not all their lives. At least he isn’t a baptist preacher behind the pulpit warning about the sins of man on man love three times a week…(twice on sunday and wednesday night, those baptist’s do a lot of begging for forgiveness). Then out at the rest areas on the Natchez Trace swapping B.J’s.
Diplo? More like Dildo.
I know we are moving more towards fluidity for many but what I find interesting it’s always a “straight guy” occasionally getting a bj from another guy. I don’t know any gay guy who occasionally hooks up with a woman.
The man is gay as a picnic basket!
he has a dark energy about him?
