Some people prefer wine and roses to set the mood for romance. Katy Perry apparently likes hipsters and dust. Page Six says she cozied up to DJ/producer Diplo at the Coachella Music Festival last weekend in Indio, Calif.
"Katy and Diplo hooked up at Coachella," relays a source. "They were together behind the main stage, where she had a tour bus or trailer, and a group of her friends were hanging out. It was very obvious that Katy and Diplo were together. They seemed inseparable and at one point they were seen getting onto her bus together."
On Saturday night, Perry, 29, and Diplo, 35, hit a Palm Springs party for Adidas and designer Jeremy Scott and hung out "pretty much the whole night," a spy tells Radar Online.
"They've been friends forever," notes the snitch. "[But] it definitely looked like more than that! At one point he even had his arms around her."
The next day, Katy and Diplo (real name: Thomas Wesley Pentz) were spotted checking out several acts, although they were not photographed together.
The popster, who split (yet again) from John Mayer in February, is no stranger to flirting in the desert. Two years ago, she enjoyed a post-Russell Brand rebound at Coachella with Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd.
She was spied last month on a supposed date with rapper Riff Raff, who happens to be signed to Diplo's record label.
As for Diplo, he dated M.I.A. from 2003-2008 and has a 3-year-old son, Lockett, from a previous relationship.
