It's fair to say, electo dance producer Deadmau5 has never been one to shy away from voicing an honest opinion. Neither does he like to hold back with his language. In fact, some of his insults are so bizarre, rude and (yes) amusing, that we've rounded up his most shocking outbursts in recent memory...

Following his latest rant at Justin Bieber for ruining his chances of appearing on Top Gear, the producer has a back catalogue of overly frank insults thrown at other musicians and celebrities. The collection includes criticim of Madonna's drug endorsement on her latest album MDNA, anger at push-button DJs, and a reluctance to ever collaborate with Kanye West.

Love him or hate him, you can always rely on Deadmau5 to say what he really thinks.


  • David Guetta: "David Guetta has two iPods and a mixer and he just plays tracks - like, 'Here's one with Akon, check it out!"

  • Skrillex (again): "Skrillex isn't doing anything too technical. He has a laptop and a MIDI recorder, and he's just playing his shit."

  • Paris Hilton: "The Mayans saw this shit coming. It's over. All I'm trying to do, is put on my life jacket and swim as far away from this shipwreck as fast as I can."

  • Madonna: "Very classy there Madonna. Quite the fucking philanthropist. But hey, at least yer hip and trendy! Fucking can't smack my head hard enough right now. What the fuck was that? Fuck off you fucking idiot."

  • All DJs: "They're like fucking lawyers. You need them, but they're fucking cunts."

  • Justin Bieber (again): "You little prick. You just fucking ruined every chance I ever had of getting on fucking Top Gear."

  • Kanye West: "Fucking Kanye. I fucking hate him. He's just trying too hard."

  • Justin Bieber: "Someone needs to jump on Justin's stage and start telling him what to play. I apologize on behalf of Canada%u2026 Dear @justinbieber , would you please grow the fuck up already? In the meantime, put a shirt on, and stay away from nightclubs.

  • Skrillex: "Most days I just wake up to a time line that's all skrillex this or Madonna that. Hardly give a Fuck. EDM sellouts bitching about who's got a good label and or who's sad. Welcome to 2015. That's about all I'm getting outta this"
