Deadmau5 has let his dislike for Skrillex be known, with the two even trading shots on Twitter.
Recently Deadmau5 took to Livestream to clarify his sentiments towards Skrillex and specifically his collaboration with Justin Bieber. In it, he explains that his distain is really directed towards the Biebs.
“I can accept that [Justin Bieber’s] album is probably good, I have no qualms with that, I know decent production when I hear it,” he said. “That’s not what I’m mad about. What I’m mad about is that none of it is this little fucking dickhead’s. You get what I’m saying? ‘This is my album’. No it’s not your fucking album, its Skrillex’s fucking album, its fucking god knows who’s album.”
Basically, Deamau5 feels that Skrillex was used by the pop star. “It’s not that I hate Skrillex, and I hate the shit he does…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…he likes to do it, he’s a fucking little hippy and loves working with people, and that’s his thing. I can respect that.”
