Deadmau5 Slams Kanye West

Deadmau5Deadmau5 "f***ing hates" Kanye West.

The "I Remember" dance music icon has hit out at the rapper, ruling out ever teaming up with him on a track. When asked who he would like to collaborate with, he told Vibe magazine, "Anyone other than f***ing Kanye. I f***ing hate him."

The 32-year-old Canadian DJ also dismissed the term "EDM," short for "Electronic Dance Music" - the scene he is associated with -saying, "Yeah, I just renamed it. I called it 'Event-Driven Marketing.'"

The outspoken star also said that if he were ever in trouble the first person he would reach out to would be Motley Crue's drummer: "If I'm having problems with my label, I can always talk to Tommy Lee, who's been sued more times than anyone I know. It makes my life not feel so f***ing bad."

Deadmau5 - real name Joel Zimmerman - later took to Twitter to brush off the comments, writing, "Holy crap! ... Jesus, I say some gnarly s**t sometimes(sic). Hahahaha. Oh man. I don't even remember that one. Oh well. I'm done, that ones to bed, lets move on (sic)."

The DJ's latest record, > album title goes here < was nominated for a Grammy award in the Best Dance/Electronica Album category last Sunday, but he was beaten by the Skrillex with his Bangarang EP.
