Deadmau5 Hospitalized for Exhaustion

7/31/2010 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

World renowned DJ Deadmau5 was hospitalized last night after collapsing on stage during a performance at a Washington DC nightclub, TMZ has confirmed.


A rep for the Canadian-born DJ -- real name Joel Zimmerman -- tells us he collapsed on stage from exhaustion ... at which point, "medics at the venue took [Deadmau5] directly to the hospital, where he is now under supervision."

The rep also tells us that Deadmau5 -- Danny DeVito's favorite performer -- has canceled his next 9 shows ... under the advice of his doctors.

#49, I totally agree with you and appreciate how irritating, stupid, ignorant, and downright pathetic those who spew nonsense about things they have NO clue about are. You're awesome. PLUR:)

Funny how those who don't know and "don't care," also DON'T THINK yet STILL manage to find the time to read the post, comment stupidly, and have such heated opinions about something they know and care nothing about. Maybe you should be channeling all that effort into something you DO know and care about. Better yet, STFU entirely.

BSOD stands for "Blue Screen Of Death" not "Better Sounding On Drugs".

Just thought I'd share.

The Stop Error (also known as Blue Screen Of Death, BSoD, bluescreen, or Blue Screen of Doom) is a colloquialism used for the error screen displayed by some operating systems, most notably Microsoft Windows, after encountering a critical system error that can cause the system to shut down to prevent irreversible damage to its integrity. It serves to present information for diagnostic purposes that was collected as the operating system issued a bug check.

DJing not hard? If it's not that hard why aren't you guys making millions doing it? Deadmau5 is a producer, not a DJ.

@Johhny: Umm... for one he does come out before his time to "Shine" as you put it. I have pictures of him and actually had the chance to talk to him before he even played. He may be dis-respectful to people but he's amazing to his fans. He just signed probably over 100 mau5 heads for his fans. That's someone you consider dis-respectful? That's just his personality get over it. The man tells it how it is. I think you're just too big of a baby to handle that. I think someone is a little butt hurt he couldn't be as big as Mau5 and it's obvious you didn't make it too far cause your on here talking s*** on here! Get a life the man is amazing.
