Deadmau5 admits to depression, apologizes to fans for recent outbursts
Just days ago, the iconic Canadian dance music producer Joel Thomas Zimmerman (aka. Deadmau5) came to the hasty decision to shutdown all his social media accounts following his tweet about killing off the whole Deadmau5 brand. Now it appears that Zimmerman has decided to reboot his socials once again together with an explanation to what occurred. Read the Deadmau5’s statement below:
“like many other human beings, I’ve been dealing with some depression issues that i don’t need to go into detail with. Id consider myself far from emotionally stable, though, not unstable enough to know support when i see it. Deactivating social media for a minute has nothing at all to do with popstars or dubstep tryhards. It was a kneejerk reaction to something i saw coming a long time ago. Also, nobodies business but my own.
id like to apologize to my fans and supporters for fucking off so abruptly, and leaving them out of the loop in terms of developments in my career and some small glimpses into my personal life…. ill resume that program for you. It’s the holidays, so ill slow things down until the new year, and chill out with friends and loved ones on vacation till the 17th or so. Then it’s back into the new studio, where ill just keep being me, and making music.
Once again, sorry for being a dick to those who are fans and supporters.” – Deadmau5 on Tumblr
As mentioned in the statement, Deadmau5 explains how he lately has been dealing with personal issues and depression, and is now in need of a timeout to process things. He also reassure his fans not to worry as he promises to return in 2016 with new music and more Deadmau5.
