It wasn’t too long ago when Deadmau5 was beefing with Skrillex on social media and calling him out for working with Justin Bieber. Now, it seems like he’s trying to get rid of all his social media accounts and have a clean slate in 2016.
A few days ago, Deadmau5 deleted his Twitter and Facebook following a detailed explanation of why he has such hatred for Bieber. “I can accept that [Justin Bieber's] album is probably good, I have no qualms with that, I know decent production when I hear it,” he said. “That’s not what I’m mad about. What I’m mad about is that none of it is this little fucking dickhead’s. You get what I’m saying? ‘This is my album’. No it’s not your fucking album, its Skrillex’s fucking album, its fucking god knows who's album."
According to NME, he deleted his social media accounts because he felt it was pretty useless to manage them. "Fuck 'social media'. The only thing it’s useful for is promoting, advertising, and more advertising. As far as being a human being on social media, forget about it. You’re just another number we can all add into our little follower count, that ultimately adds up to NOTHING I require to make music."
If that wasn’t strange enough, he uploaded two new tracks.
His last tweet was this: "peace out. brb. 2017." Is this the end of Deadmau5 and the start of Joel Zimmerman?
