Deadmau5 Slams Kanye West

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Gossip, Dance, Electronic, Hip-Hop & Rap,

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."

Kat Von D and Deadmau5 Call it Quits

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Music, Television, Break-ups,

Kat Von D and Deadmau5Tattoo artist and reality star Kat Von D confirmed that she and DJ/producer Deadmau5 have split up.

Von D, 30, took to the microblogging site Twitter to inform her fans of the break-up: "Man... Can't say I didn't give it my best. Man, I sure was wrong. But at least he made it a no-brainer to break that off. Lesson Learned... Now, we can get all of the 'I told you so's' outta the way... And move on." And just to make sure that there wasn't any confusion about whom she was referring to, she wrote, "Clarification: Deadmau5 and I are no longer together."

A source close to the couple - who started dating in September - previously revealed that they began dating after meeting at a party.

Prior to Deadmau5 - whose real name is Joel Zimmerman - Von D had an on-again-off-again relationship with Sandra Bullock's ex, Jesse James. She reportedly split with him due to his infidelity.

Kat Von D Gives Deadmau5 Matching Tattoo

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Music, Television, Dating,

Deadmau5 and Kat Von DIt looks like things are moving quickly between tattoo artist Kat Von D and her latest boyfriend, Joel Zimmerman (a.k.a. Deadmau5). Quickly in the sense that they already have matching tattoos after dating for a month!

The former reality star gave her music producer boyfriend a star tattoo under his eye, which matches one of her own. Von D is no stranger to getting ink in honor of a romantic relationship -- she still has her permanent reminder of past lover Jesse James in her left armpit (his face).

The pair were spotted enjoying the L.A. weather at a cafe in West Hollywood yesterday, with Von D revealing most of her tattoos with a black maxi dress paired with a black handbag and sandals.

Both Joel and Kat - who have been dating since mid-September - have professed their love of both tattoos and cats via Twitter (clearly a match made in Hollywood heaven).

Deadmau5 to Make a Concept Album?

Deadmau5Deadmau5 wants to write a concept album like Pink Floyd's The Wall.

The dance musician has just released his sixth album, >Album Title Goes Here<, made during a hectic period of DJ performances around the world, but he's hoping to take a year off and create something completely different, with a concept, like British psychedelic band's 1979 classic.

">Album Title Goes Here< is like a poster book of my year and the work I got done in the chaos kind of thing. Hopefully next time - and I know I say this every f***ing time - that I'll have this year off of touring and put together something that's like Pink Floyd's The Wall. Something that tells a story and has a big package thing [around it]," he told MTV.

KISS Taught Deadmau5 How to Perform

Deadmau5Deadmau5 learned his showmanship from KISS. The producer wears a mouse-shaped helmet when performing and is known for putting on one of the most spectacular visual shows in dance music - making him one of the most highly paid DJs in the world - and he claims the idea came from the 70s glam rock band.

"The big turnaround for me was going to a Kiss concert. They're terrible. They suck so bad. I hope they don't read this. But their show is a f***ing show. They put a lot into making it entertaining. At one point, the guitarist pulls out a fricking bazooka and blows off a bit off the stage. How things have changed. I remember when [Nine Inch Nails frontman] Trent Reznor used to bring out a crappy old keyboard and smash it up, and everyone would say: 'Oh wow, that was so cool, we were at the concert where Trent snapped and smashed up his keyboard!' Bull***t. He used to do that every night. I loved the theatrics. It's about spectacle. That's what I realized."

Deadmau5 Blasts Madonna, David Guetta and Skrillex

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Gossip, Electronic, Pop,

Deadmau5Deadmau5 has blasted Madonna, David Guetta and Skrillex.

The "I Remember" dance musician famously criticized Madonna after she appeared to ask fans who was taking drugs at one of her concerts, and has now said she should stay away from dance music: "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 f***ing blues concert. It's inappropriate."

Deadmau5 - real name Joel Zimmerman - also criticized two of the biggest DJs in the world, claiming there is very little skill in the way they perform.

"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**t. People are, thank God, smartening up about who does what - but there's still button-pushers getting paid half a million. And not to say I'm not a button-pusher. I'm just pushing a lot more buttons."

Foo Fighters at the Grammys

Foo Fighters feel "bad" for winning the Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance Grammy.
