Kanye West slams deadmau5
Kanye West has hit back at deadmau5 following allegations about piracy.
The 'Stronger' hitmaker has slammed the house star - real name Joel Thomas Zimmerman - for alleging that the father-of-two uses the illegal download site Pirate Bay, after a snap he posted on Twitter appeared to show a tab of the site open.
In a series of tweets, he wrote: "@Deadmau5 ... is this person's name pronounced dead-mow-five? # ok very serious question... # whose job is it to carry the head on the plane # hash tag # do you check the mickey mouse head or carry on # does it get hot?
"# ok another super serious question ... is there a portable fan situation? # hash tag you raised Tidal's subscriptions by a whopping [three mouse emojis] downloads # I'm bored ### when you get married will your wife have a giant minnie mouse head? # This brightened up my day... thank you dead-mow-five
"Do you do birthday parties?? My daughter loves Minnie mouse ... can you please bring the minnie mouse head ... not yours she specifically likes minnie mouse ... I need you to perform at her party with specifically a minnie mouse dead-mow-five head... not a mickey mouse dead-mow-five head. I'm very detailed oriented and I will know the difference so don't try to just throw a bow on the original head ... (sic)"
The 38-year-old rapper's team have now confirmed the laptop doesn't belong to him and that Kanye had just posted the picture as a joke and to highlight the popularity of the pirating of his latest album 'The Life of Pablo'.
