It’s the year of the mouse! Electronic musician Deadmau5 lands the cover of Rolling Stone and this Ontario boy says he can’t believe it. In the behind-the-scenes video of his latest shoot he admits: “It’s actually crazy to be on the cover, I didn’t think I’d make the cover of anything.”;
Inside the latest issue, the progressive house producer gives a glimpse of how he’s living the high life and no drug innuendo here! Deadmau5 famously called out Madonna for making an apparent “Ecstasy’ reference on-stage at the Miami Ultra Music Festival back in March. Madge shouted out: “How many people in the crowd have seen Molly?”; Deadmau5 took to Twitter, fueling a war of words that this mouse isn’t going to let die.
“You want to be “hip’ and “cool’ and “funky grandma?'”; Deadmau5 asks Madonna in Rolling Stone. “Fine. It’s not my place to say you’re irrelevant. If you’re going to come into my world, at least do it with a little more dignity.”;
He also explains why he’s turned down collaborations with the Material Girl and other pop stars like Rihanna: “Everybody’s all up on the EDM bandwagon now because it’s another viable conduit for traditional pop music to ride for a bit… I’m not really in it for that.”;
