As evidenced by a new Deadmau5 rant on Youtube, Twitter didn’t have enough characters to contain the rage he feels toward Skrillex and Justin Bieber.
But his beef with Skrillex was, according to Deadmau5, really all about Justin Bieber using talented producers as foils for his own success.
At the heart of his rage is Justin Bieber, a “meat puppet” who has no claim to the art he says is his, according to Deadmau5. When a fan online says that Bieber’s album is hot, Deadmau5 blows his top.
“I can accept that his album is probably good, I have no qualms with that, I know decent production when I hear it,” he says. “That’s not what I’m mad about. What I’m mad about is that none of it is this little f—ing d—head’s. You get what I’m saying? ‘This is my album’. No it’s not your f—ing album, its Skrilllex’s f—ing album, it’s f—ing god knows who’s album. Then you going hum ha hum ha. Not even to s–t you even wrote…Your just a little meat puppet, dude.”
His beef with Skrillex, he said, is only about how he thinks the producer fed the Justin Bieber machine.
“It’s not that I hate Skrillex, and I hate the s— he does,” he said. “I hate that he allowed himself to be a goddamn tool for someone else. “But I can’t be too much of an ass about it because he likes to do it, he’s a f—ing little hippy and loves working with people, and that’s his thing. I can respect that. That’s fine.”
Bieber’s contributions are the issue, here.
“What did you do,” he said of Bieber. “You sang on it. I can credit you for being able to hold a pitch on two syllables on an entire album.”
