Feuds between artists are as old as music itself. Platinum metal had its infamous Metallica versus Megadeth contention, 90’s hip-hop had its 2pac versus Biggie gang shootouts. And now that electronic music has come forth as a major player in the american music scene, it’s no surprise that DJs are taking to the conflict game.
We all remember Ultra Music Festival weekend when Deadmau5 called out pop-star turned electro-producer Madonna on Twitter for her slurred “Has anyone seen my friend Molly?” comment. Well, Deadmau5 is once again tweet-fighting, this time with reality TV star-turned DJ Pauly D.
New kid on the block Pauly D posted a link to his newest music video for his track “Night of My Life” and invited feedback from the twittersphere. Deadmau5 took the open invitation as a chance for criticism and tweeted, “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.”
Pauly D took the taunt and retorted with a Mastercard commercial - tailored to his life: “T-Shirt $40 Jeans $120 Hair Gel $12 Being Hated On Bydeadmau5#Priceless.”
And the battle continued as Deadmau5 offered more sharp-tongued words: “hating? the f—-? you clearly don’t know me enough if you thought that was ‘hating’. was just some friendly-ish advice.”
And there you have it folks, we’ve progressed getting shot up on the block to getting blasted on Twitter. Say hello to the rockstars of 2012, everyone!
