They haven't managed yet, though not for lack of trying: He once played the Major Lazer song "Lean On", a collaboration with DJ Snake and MØ, for Rihanna, and she told him she does not do house music.

And why can't they get her?

Rihanna has admitted she did call one of Diplo's tracks airport music - confessing "my bad". So I played her a song. Laughing, Diplo concluded: "I was like, I'm gonna go kill myself".

Rihanna keeps the last laugh this week.

"I just want her on a Major Lazer song". Diplo (né Thomas Wesley Pentz) said it was definitely one those let-me-cover-my-face moments.

Rihanna might be working with Skrillex, but Diplo is apparently another story...

But if not, I don't really care.

Nissan LEAF appears in Japanese TV advert
Pictures of the new 2018 Nissan Leaf have been leaked onto the internet less than a month before it is due to be revealed. Now the Autobytel specs state that the base version would indeed have a 40 kWh battery pack at a base price of $29,990.

But she's held her hands up and apologised to producer Diplo for a slightly awks comment she made about his music.

"So I went and re-cut the vocal and everybody in my life was like, "You can't give this away to anybody".

Diplo said he thinks Rihanna will end up on a song at some point.

There are a few things in this delightful quote that deserve unpacking, the first of which is Diplo's chpice to play "Lean On" for Rihanna.

But following the awkward reveal, RiRi herself took to Instagram to have her say on Airport-Reggae-Gate, and although it maybe wasn't the most heartfelt apology ever, it definitely still counts.

For all the current goings on in Diplo's world, head over to GQ Style to read the full interview.
