Deadmau5 Slams Skrillex, David Guetta And Madonna

Outspoken electro star Deadmau5 has ripped into Skrillex, David Guetta and Madonna and is trying to get a Dave Grohl remix.

Joel Zimmerman, better known as Deadmau5, is no stranger to speaking his mind. And in a new Rolling Stone cover story, he criticises his fellow electronic music stars, as well as continuing his hating on Madonna.

He first had a go at ‘button-pusher’ live electro shows, saying “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 continues. “He has a laptop and a MIDI recorder, and he’s just playing his shit … 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.”

And he’s not resiling from his criticism of Madonna’s Miami ecstasy references. He said, “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.”

And finally, following his performance alongside the Foo Fighters at the Grammys, he says he wants Dave Grohl to remix some of his music, because “fuck dance music, you know?”

Check out the performance below.
