Deadmau5 to Madonna: “F#ck off you f#cking idiot”
If there’s one dance music personality who prefers honesty to PR-friendliness, it’s Deadmau5. Today sees the outspoken star offer his opinion (in no uncertain terms) on what’s shaping up to be one of inthemix’s biggest stories of the week: Madonna’s awkward intro for Avicii at Ultra Music Festival. His sticking point: the ‘molly’ reference that no doubt saw traffic to urbandictionary.com spike on Saturday night. Do we really need to add the ‘sic’s below?
“Very classy there Madonna,” he wrote on his Facebook, followed by an avalanche of ‘Likes’. ”’HUR DUR HAS ANYONE SEEN MOLLY???’ Such a great message for the young music lovers at ultra. quite the f’n philanthropist. but hey, at least yer HIP AND TRENDY! fucking cant smack my head hard enough right now.”
One rant wasn’t enough, though, with a ‘clarification’ following: “Seriously, i giveth not a fucking single FUCK for slating on madonna for reaching an entirely NEW level of idiocy … i can appreciate her meteoric career, and all good deeds done, but WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT? That’s your big contribution to EDM? Thats your big message to ultra attendies? hipsterspeak for looking for drugs? fuck off you fucking IDIOT. fuck.”
Deadmau5 has had a close working relationship with Ultra Music Festival, and last year he was tasked with headlining one of the nights. In 2012, though, he opted to spend his Miami time running workshops for aspiring producers rather than joining the fray at Bayfront Park. That said, the festival may not be clamouring to have him back following his comments earlier this year in a ustream with fans. “Ultra to me is like the definition of insanity,” he said. “It’s doing the same fucking thing every year, expecting different results every time. Why would you go every year? 595 fucking dollars for a ticket?”
Well, that’s that. Maybe we can ask Avicii what he made of Madonna’s ‘hipsterspeak’ when he lands in Sydney next month…
