Diplo is a huge Madonna fan. In addition to working with the iconic pop star in the studio—he collaborated on “Future” from her new album, Madame X—the DJ-producer also attended the 2015 Met Gala with her. (They were rumored to be dating around this time.) He’s publicly declared his admiration for her on multiple occasions, once telling Rolling Stone, “She created the world we live in. It already sucks to be a woman in the music industry, but to be a boss woman is even harder.” Last night, Diplo kept up his devotion to Madge by attending her concert at the Wiltern in Los Angeles—and his concert look proved he’s the ultimate fanboy.
His outfit began with some Madonna merch: a vintage “Music”-themed tee from 2001, featuring Madonna in a blue western-inspired look. (That year was the singer's peak cowgirl moment; remember “Don't Tell Me?”) The rest of the ensemble also paid homage to the “Music” video's rodeo vibe: he wore a tapestry-style zip-up jacket, brown trousers, a huge belt buckle, and suede cowboy boots. He didn’t forget his trustee cowboy hat either—something he also wore on the 2019 AMAs red carpet.
