Deadmau5 Mocks Justin Bieber Over Skrillex-Diplo Making Of Video

(Radio.com) On Tuesday morning The New York Times posted a video about the making of "Where Are U Now," by Jack U, the collaborative project between Skrillex and Diplo; the song also features Justin Bieber. The Times' video features interviews with all three artists.

This particular project seems to have raised the ire of Joel Zimmerman, better known as Deadmau5. The typically cantankerous EDM artist, who has long been known to embark an extended rant from time to time, went on a Twitter rampage about the video, in particular mocking the moment when Justin Bieber states that the song is "expensive. The sounds we used are not cheap. They're very expensive sounds."

"holy f-," wrote Zimmerman. "i just cant. im done." He elaborated in a series of tweets mocking Bieber: "SO EXPENSIVE. you dont even want to know how much my sounds cost. f--ing crazy. moving air isnt f--in cheap."

He posted a meme image with Bieber's face superimposed with what he believes to be the more modest costs of the song. He also posted video on Instagram in which he recreates the drum sounds from the song while someone off camera throws money at him. See it here.
