Deadmau5 + DJ Pauly D Engage in Twitter War
Basically, Deadmau5 accused DJ Pauly D of “overmarketing” in his music video for ‘Night of My Life.’ The drama started when Pauly D tweeted to his fans asking what they thought of the video for ‘Night of My Life.’ Deadmau5 replied, “well since you asked, i didn’t really enjoy it. it looked like it cost about $150 to make, and nothing really creative about it.” A little harsh, no?
The spree continued on both sides, with Deadmau5 adding, “@DJPaulyD yer ‘overmarketing’ the hell out of it. just being honest. your fans aren’t idiots. engage them, and the music will do the selling,” followed by, “the f— am i supposed to say? ‘great job! keep it up! these old bulls— music business models still work great!’ as the f— if.” Not gonna lie, we liked the potty-mouthed Cher Horowitz bit.
In any case, Pauly D responded, “T-Shirt $40 Jeans $120 Hair Gel $12 Being Hated On By Deadmau5 #Priceless.” Deadmau5 didn’t take that well, replying once more, “@DJPaulyD hating? the f—? you clearly don’t know me enough if you thought that was “hating”. was just some friendly-ish advice.” We’re on the end that thinks it was more “-ish” than “friendly,” though Deadmau5′s initial comment wasn’t necessarily mean — just very direct.
The feud went on a for a while — don’t these guys have mixes to do? Pauly D wrote, “Wonder If I Could Get @Deadmau5 To DJ My Birthday ?? Now That Would Be The #NightOfMyLife.” Deadmau5 replied that he doesn’t have a publicist and to be careful. Pauly D then got cute with the puns, tweeting, “Maybe He Just Needs Some Cheese To Go With His Whine … #WheresMyMau5Trap.”
The sparring spinners’ final — and least profane — tweets are:
i’ll just leave it at: “Don’t blame your failure on haters. If everyone thinks you suck, they’re not haters, they’re right.” – Daniel Tosh
