Deadmau5, whose real name is Joel Thomas Zimmerman, enjoys success as one of the biggest artists in the EDM genre, and he is clearly not a fan of fellow artist Paris Hilton — who happens to make up to $1 million for each gig she plays at, according to the New York Post‘s Page Six. Not bad for a night’s work, right?
The “Raise Your Weapon” hit maker took to his blog to dis Hilton in a big way on Friday.
Taken as written from his blog, he began his rant with, “So Paris makes a billion dollars playing a CD at a club. thats great. how is this news again?
“Look, as much as shes probably loathed by the EDM world… and me, you can’t possibly hold it against her for involvement in the electronic music scene. I remember back when, at the cosmo in vegas, she attended, and i guess i was accommodating (as far as that usually goes for me) i could see she was having a fun time, liked the music, and just wanted to be a part of it all… so of course, why not… even i couldn’t hate on that.”
But he has a lot of other stuff that he can hate on, apparently.
“But, let’s get real here for a second…There’s being involved / enthusiastic about something… and then there’s just being a straight up ass.”
He then went on to compare Hilton’s DJ skills to that of an amateur race-car driver and suggested that instead of racing with the big boys, she go back and try racing karts instead.
“so paris, thank you… were actually not even mad youre enthusiatic about electronic music… we love that youre a part of our party. But please, get the f*** back in your go kart. No need to prove that you found someone stupid enough to consider paying you a million dollars for something the world knows you arent… because here’s what you actually are to everyone who knows better.. ticket sales. nothing more.”
So how does Miss Hilton feel about the latest dis? She’s too busy living life, apparently.
Hilton took to Twitter earlier today to share her good news with her music fans.
I find it hilarious when others try to badmouth me in order to get attention. Sorry that I'm #Killingit while doing what I love & live for.
