Even if you're headlining at a major nightclub, you can't let it get to your head.

Global superstar DJ Diplo was kept humble when preparing to play at a club in the US recently after a group of girls asked him to take a photo outside - without him in it.

Of course, Diplo backs his photography skills, so he took a bunch of photos of the three girls. The Major Lazer creator decided to have a little fun with the situation afterwards on social media. 

"These ladies must have had too much rosé and didn’t recognise how handsome I was because they asked me to take their picture in front of the club I'm headlining tonight,' Diplo wrote on Instagram.

"It's OK though because I'm an experienced Instagram photographer and I knew the right angles." 

Singer Halsey piped up in the comments section, writing: "Is this in New Jersey? I apologise on behalf..." alongside a face palm emoji.
