deadmau5 has lashed out again, this time taking aim at Skrillex, David Guetta and Madonna.
The electronic superstar told Rolling Stone, “David Guetta has two iPods and a mixer and he just plays tracks – like, ‘Here’s one with Akon, check it out!’”
He continued, “Even Skrillex isn’t doing anything too technical... 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.”
In March this year, deadmau5 very publicly criticised Madonna for referring to ecstasy at a Miami performance.
He's not letting up, it seems, adding in the Rolling Stone interview, “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.”
