This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Ooof, Deadmau5. Perhaps you should keep you adorable, mousy mouth shut if it’s prone to spew negative sh*t about your fellow musicians!
“You want to be ‘hip’ and ‘cool’ and ‘funky grandma’? Fine. It’s not my place to say you’re irrelevant. If you’re gonna come into my world, at least do it with a little more dignity. I understand she has millions more fans, and is way more successful than I’ll ever be. But it’s like talking about slavery at a fucking blues concert. It’s inappropriate.”
Ouch! Althout we think it’s pretty inappropriate to compare slavery to drug-use, but whatever…
“David Guetta has two iPods and a mixer and he just plays tracks. Like, ‘Here’s one with Akon, check it out!’ Even Skrillex isn’t doing anything too technical. He has a laptop and a MIDI recorder, and he’s just playing his s—.”
Alright, hold up, BITTER much?! Regardless of whether the above is true, why mention it? There is NO reason to hate on others in an interview, especially when you could be talking about your OWN musical ventures/why you think YOUR music is good/superior.
Really, it’s not productive and quite tacky. LAME LAME SHAME SHAME.
