At the heart of his rage is Justin Bieber, a "meat puppet" who has no claim to the art he says is his, according to Deadmau5. When a fan online says that Bieber's album is hot, Deadmau5 blows his top.
"I can accept that his album is probably good, I have no qualms with that, I know decent production when I hear it," he says. "That's not what I'm mad about. What I'm mad about is that none of it is this little f-ing d-head's. You get what I'm saying? 'This is my album'. No it's not your f-ing album, its Skrilllex's f-ing album, it's f-ing god knows who's album. Then you going hum ha hum ha. Not even to s-t you even wrote…Your just a little meat puppet, dude."
His beef with Skrillex, he said, is only about how he thinks the producer fed the Justin Bieber machine. "It's not that I hate Skrillex, and I hate the s- he does," he said. "I hate that he allowed himself to be a goddamn tool for someone else. "But I can't be too much of an ass about it because he he likes to do it, he's a f-ing little hippy and loves working with people, and that's his thing. I can respect that. that's fine."
Bieber's contributions are the issue, here. "What did you do," he said of Bieber. "You sang on it. I can credit you for being able to hold a pitch on two syllables on an entire album." Check out the video here.
The blockbuster album, which spent 37 weeks at no. 1 on the Billboard 200 Album chart, has also sold over 100 million copies across the globe since its release over three decades ago.
LA Reid, the current head of Epic Records, which released Thriller, had this to say about this latest achievement: "Thriller was groundbreaking and electrifying...it was perfection. I am extremely proud that Michael is the heart and soul of Epic Records and he will forever remain the one-and-only King of Pop."
RIAA Chairman and CEO Cary Sherman had the following to say in the announcement: "We are honored to celebrate the unique status of Thriller in Gold & Platinum history. What an exceptional achievement and testament to Thriller's enduring spot in our hearts and musical history."

In an Instagram post which has subsequently been deleted, The Game appeared to take Stitches up on his invitation to fight (via XXL Magazine). Rather than appear in a Celebrity Boxing Match, however, The Game reportedly stated he would fight the rapper for free, even going so far as to offer Stitches a plane ticket to L.A.
Once there, Stitches would have to fight Nicky D, a fellow caucasian, and if he is not knocked out, then Game is happy to fight him mid street, assuming of course he signed a waiver that no charges will be pressed.
In part he writes: "I'll fly you 1st class to California & @NickyDsss will f- yo bum ass up #WhiteboyVSWhiteboy !!!! & if you don't get yo ass knocked out…. I will fight yo p-- ass for FREE in the middle of the street after you sign a waver that you can't sue me or press charges cause I'm tired of you pussy's talkin tough on the internet then calling the cops & gettin lawyers after you get pounded out !!!!"

While the CEO wants Shmurda to record for him if he posts his bail, Shkreli says he wants to get involved with hip-hop for the love. "To me, what I'm doing right now in the media, raising prices, all this s-, believe what you want, but it's interesting.
"It gets people talking. At the end of the day, that's what art is. I don't know if I can translate the sh*t into rap or not, but I'll try… In 500 years, they're going to talk about rap the same way we talk about Shakespeare. I just want to throw my hat in the ring, that's all. I don't want to make money." Read more here.

"'You Should Be Here,' [is] a song I wrote last year when I was on tour, I wrote it outside of a football stadium, believe it or not," Swindell told Radio.com. "Just thinking about… I lost my dad two years ago in a freak accident, and when Ashley Gorley, one of my favorite writers, brought up this title, he had to have known that's what I wanted to write."
The video follows Swindell's successes and features his family as the lyrics reflect the singer's desire to share these moments with his father. "I thought about my dad," Swindell added. "Just all the things that I get to do. It ain't even for the folks that maybe haven't lost somebody, maybe you just miss somebody. Maybe you have family in another state, or there's those moments in life that we all get to share, and it's like if that one person was here, man, they'd freak out, they would love it."
By the end of the clip, Swindell is in tears and you just might be as well. Watch it here.

The Conrad Tao mix combines wistful, searching vocals from Spears' In the Zone single with Angelo Badalamenti's stirring and idiosyncratic melody from the David Lynch cult classic.
