“So Paris makes a billion dollars playing a CD at a club. that’s great. how is this news again? Personally, i would pay about as much to see her “perform” as Indy fans would pay to watch me struggle to get out of first gear and 20 feet off the starting grid in an Indy 500 race without ending up in a wreck.
To put it in perspective… I’m a noob indy / f1 / racing fan. I love the sport, the community, events, and the tech… shit, i just got into it like last year. better late than never. To me, it’s just a fun thing i can enjoy outside of my professional career to kick back and get interested in.
I guess Paris did the same thing… look, as much as she’s probably loathed by the EDM world… and me, you can’t possibly hold it against her for involvement in the electronic music scene.
I remember back when, at the cosmo in Vegas, she attended, and i guess i was accommodating (as far as that usually goes for me) i could see she was having a fun time, liked the music, and just wanted to be a part of it all… so of course, why not… even i couldn’t hate on that.
But, let’s get real here for a second… There’s being involved / enthusiastic about something… and then there’s just being a straight up ass.
deadmau5 uses a metaphor with the Indy 500 saying that he wouldn’t try to break into racing and compete with drivers who have spent their lives racing just to fulfill a dream.
like i said…. there’s no way in hell one day im going to just randomly show up to a racing event, proclaiming my “super awesome driving talent” and get in the race just because i’ve been lucky enough in life. because i know a few things….
Being an F1 driver… usually starts around the age of 6-10 … you spend years driving go-karts… loads of karting. then when you’re 17-18 whatever… they upgrade you for F3, basically… your go-karts get bigger and faster… look, that’s not the only path im sure, im just saying… most “actual” drivers i know, have invested their ENTIRE lives to their careers. Just like many musicians have. So i have to respect that…because i can hold that close, I’ve done it in my own field.
So, don’t you think it would be a tad insulting to the professionals and fans of the driving world if i just showed up one day… dated a driver, then hopped on the circuit the following week “just coz i can” ? god… even i know my f-ckin limits… sh-t.
so maybe you’ll catch me performing in the snake pit, attending a professional track event, or even having some friendly fun with some legit drivers in a non competitive track setting… but i 10000% never in a million years wouldn’t have the balls to encroach on their scene, and consider myself a professional.. enter their marketplace, and profit. thats just insulting as f-ck.
deadmau5 then WARNS Hilton proclaiming that the EDM community might be happy that she likes it, don’t do it.
So Paris, thank you… were actually not even mad you’re enthusiastic about electronic music… we love that you’re a part of our party. But please, get the f-ck back in your go-kart. No need to prove that you found someone stupid enough to consider paying you a million dollars for something the world knows you arent… because here’s what you actually are to everyone who knows better.. ticket sales. Nothing more.”
“I find it hilarious when others try to badmouth me in order to get attention…”
“Sorry that I’m #Killingit while doing what I love & live for.”
Guess deadmau5 didn’t get through to her at all. Do you agree with deadmau5 or disagree?
