Deadmau5 Slams Kanye West: 'I F---ing Hate Him'


Deadmau5 (Joel Thomas Zimmerman) wears one of his trademark helmets to the Grammys -- and likely upsets those seated behind him.

Deadmau5 will not be working with Kanye West any time soon.

Asked which rapper he would like to design a live show for, the Canadian electro-house producer said: “Anyone other than f---ing Kanye. I f---ing hate him.”

His comments appear in a story in the February/March issue of Vibe, the cover of which he shares with Mary J. Blige.

Deadmau5 also revealed whom he would call when in a pinch.

“If I’m having problems with my label, I can always talk to Tommy Lee, who’s been sued more times than anyone I know,” he said. “It makes my life not feel so f---ing bad.”

The superstar DJ, who is engaged to Kat Von D, also slammed the term "EDM," short for "electronic dance music," saying, “Yeah, I just renamed it. I called it 'Event-Driven Marketing.'”
