Diplo attends the 2020 amfAR New York Gala on Feb. 5, 2020 in New York City. 

Diplo went hard in the paint this week, to use a sports analogy, as Diplo did myriad sports-related things this week.

With the Super Bowl going down this past Sunday and our hero Thomas Wesley also appearing on NBA on TNT with his fellow producer Shaquille O'Neil, feats of athleticism were big on the radar, with being a globetrotting superstar DJ a feat of athleticism all its own.

Check out all these and more highlights from Diplo's Instagram below.

February 2: But isn't like, all of life a red carpet when you have 5.8 milion Instagram followers? (Also, props to Major Lazer for getting play during the half time show.)

February 3: Yes, Diplo had a cool time hanging in Miami during the Super Bowl, but the only piece of content in this slideshow that really matters is the video of him jigging to "Hey Ya."

February 4: Paris Hilton sliding in the comments to write "sliving," which is Paris Hilton speak for "slaying" + "living my best life."
