Deadmau5

Pauly D's a Hack!!!

Pauly D
's a no-talent poser -- at least according to electronic music legend Deadmau5.

The famed mouse-headed DJ was shooting a music video in LA over the weekend -- when we asked if he thought the "Jersey Shore" star had any real DJ talent. Deadmau5 responded, "No, not really."

DM's Pauly D jab comes in the wake of a little Twitter feud last week -- when Mr. Mau5 publicly bashed Pauly's new music video, saying it looked embarrassingly cheap ... "like it cost about $150 to make."

Pauly said he was flattered that DM even deigned to criticize him -- but now, Deadmau5 says the entire embarrassing Internet standoff could have been avoided ... if Pauly did ONE thing differently ... watch the clip.

So ummm... TMZ... Where does Deadmau5 call Pauly D a hack? I watched the video, and he said no such thing. Typical TMZ.

takes a HACK to bash A Hack, Can you say VINYL deadrat? A real DJ uses Vinyl not buttons. I hate that flippin rat, all he does is bash other artist, Go hang on Skrillex like the skid mark you are deadrat.

it makes me really sad to see DM in the headlines in such a way...I didn't mind when he went off about Madonna but he seems to be talkin sh*t about anyone and everyone these days. He's got a big head and it's making him look like a pompous ass... come back to Canada, clear your head... no one likes a big ego. That's not very Canadian of you and i'd hate to put you in the same pompous egotistical jack-ass category as Justin Bieber.

Just one last thing to add...it's highly ignorant of people to claim he just 'plays records'. Actually, DM makes his own tracks..he doesn't just play other peoples records...he makes tracks/songs...and it requires the use of equipment...maybe he's not picking up a guitar, but he is doing something more then just pressing play on an ipod. Synthesizers,mixers, ect...not being a dj/producer myself, I certainly cannot name all the equipment involved... but I CAN assure you, using this equipment is certainly NOT as simple as pressing 'play' on an ipod. Don't be so ignorant.

The Beef    

Where did he say Pauly D was a hack??

TMZ, you can't just make up your own take on a story. What was said in the video is certainly not what your explanation says happened.

NOT COOL, TMZ. You're better then that (or so I thought)

WOW, TMZ was way more harsh in their title and description than DEADMAU5 was in what he actually said--at least from this clip. Boo to you TMZ. Report the story and stop trying to make it. p.s. Thank you for all the Lindsy, Miley, and Kate boob shots. More please! :-)

Pauly D is a no talent hack for sure...but Deadmush is hardly an EDM legend...every song sounds the same and he is already starting to be over after 2yrs....Derrick May is an EDM legend

Hey all - I was at the LA shoot .. shot a bit of Joel before the big shoot. Check it out if you're a fan (or if you think he sucks). Either way please don't hate on the guy, he's a true artist.
