John Mayer, Halsey and Diplo Jammed at a Fake ‘Vanity Fair’ Oscars Party Held at John’s House

John Mayer Halsey DiploIt may seem like a long way to go for a joke — or a crazy theme party — but singer-songwriter John Mayer hosted a fake Vanity Fair Oscars party at his Los Angeles home last night. For his weekly “Current Mood” series, John constructed a set that looked just like the Vanity Fair red carpet and filmed various bits with his guests in front of the convincing backdrop.

Among the guests at John’s “Oscars Extravaganza” party were comedians Dave Chapelle and Bob Sagat, producer Diplo and singer Halsey. At one point in filming the episode, John got up and jammed the song “Wannabe” with Halsey and Diplo.

We have a clip of the jam — and the very life-like but fake Vanity Fair background — below. We also have the video of John’s full episode, for those interested.   Continue Reading →

Check out Ellie Goulding and Diplo’s New Video for “Close to Me” Featuring Swae Lee

Ellie Goulding DiploToday was apparently a day for comeback videos. First Ashley Tisdale released the video for her new song, “Voices in My Head.” And Ellie Goulding also released her first significant music video in several years for ‘”Close to Me,” her collaboration with Diplo and Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee.

Ellie’s video aims to be more of a beautiful visual than tell a story. Shot at various historical places in Budapest, Hungary, the video serves as a vehicle for Ellie to model various high-end fashion looks with Budapest’s old world architecture and interior design as a backdrop. Which is sometimes all that one needs in a video.

You can watch the video for Ellie’s collab with Diplo and Swae Lee below.   Continue Reading →
