Uh oh! We grabbed the popcorn and got ready for some drama when Kanye West slammed fellow hothead Deadmau5, fully expecting a war. However, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the producer is just laughing it off! We have the details, here.
Deadmau5, 35, and Kanye West, 38, are both easy to rile up, and have a history of freaking out online. So, when Deadmau5 attacked Kanye for his use of torrent site Pirate Bay on Mar. 2, and Kanye recanted by calling him Minnie Mouse, we expected quite the blowout. Well, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the EDM producer is just laughing it off with his buddy Calvin Harris, 32. Here’s the scoop.
Deadmau5 is no stranger to Twitter feuds, so we were expecting his fight with Kanye to be a doozy. We’re a little disappointed that he’s not looking to put the time or effort into a good blowout with the rapper. “Deadmau5 loves that Kanye is ranting about him and is laughing it all off,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com.
Luckily, one of his good EDM buddies, Calvin, has had a front row seat to Kanye’s rants against his girlfriend Taylor Swift, so he knows the drill. “He has been in contact with Calvin and they are joking about how Deadmau5 should deal with it, since Calvin knows all too well about Kanye bashing thanks to his rants on Taylor,” the source explained EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “It is providing them all with quite the amount of entertainment and laughter.” To hear more about Kanye West, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!
On Mar. 1 Deadmau5 took to Twitter to put Yeezy on blast for using Pirate Bay, a website that torrents music, movies, software and more. Kanye didn’t take his critique well, calling him”dead-mow-five” and Minnie Mouse before asking him to perform North’s birthday party. Deadmau5 has had some pretty extreme beefs in the past, so we’re shocked that he’s letting it go this time.
