Kat Von D and Deadmau5 announced their engagement in December when he proposed on Twitter (what is this world?) after roughly 4 months of dating (and a break-up inbetween). Aw, true love. Of course, you can’t expect two freaks to walk down the aisle in any traditional way, so cue the HP Lovecraft references and the “underwater-themed” shindig!
On Aug. 10, the couple will marry in an “underwater-themed” ceremony before 200 friends and family in Los Angeles, the tattoo artist tells PEOPLE.
Drawing from their mutual love for H.P. Lovecraft’s short story “The Call of Cthulhu,” about a character that is half-man, half-octopus, Von D assures PEOPLE that she and the electronic musician’s ceremony will be “the furthest thing from traditional.”
Previously engaged to Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband Jesse James, who married drag racer Alexis DeJoria in March, Von D will have a big day that will include everything from various blue- and green-colored food to performers dressed as mermaids.
And her dress will fit the part too!
“It will have a sleek silhouette and include hints of iridescent teals, blues and deep violet ombré gradients,” explains Von D, who has called upon Falguni and Shane Peacock to make the gown, which Deadmau5 is helping design. “I didn’t know the dress was supposed to be a surprise,” she adds.
Kat also said that being with Deadmau5 (I’m sorry, “Joel”) is the only thing that “feels more natural than tattooing”. LOL! She said something similar when she was f-cking Jesse James, as well, but whatever. Oh, to be a fly on the wall at this freak fest.

Deadmau5, a Canadian “electro-house producer” known for wearing a gigantic-ass mouse head, gave some words of love and encouragement for rapper Kanye West. Just kidding he said, “I f-cking hate him.” He didn’t say this out of the blue, though. It’s not like he went into a Starbucks and said, “I’ll have chai latte and I f-cking hate Kanye West.” Vibe Magazine asked who he would most like to work with. And like any self respecting adult, his answer was,
Anyone other than f—ing Kanye. I f—ing hate him.
Bravery level: so.
Well whatever, Mouse Head, I’m not fond of you either. You get all pissy whenever someone refers to you as a “DJ” while acting like what you do and make is like John Lennon 2013. How is what you do that different from being a DJ? And what’s wrong with DJs? In 2008 in an interview with Irish Daily Star he said,
It puts me to f-cking sleep, to be quite honest; I don’t really see the technical merit in playing two songs at the same speed together and it bores me to f-cking tears and hopefully, with all due respect to the DJ type that will f-cking go the way of the dinosaur, I’d like them to dis-a-f-cking-ppear! [And then here he called them a very bad word.]
Please tell me more, from inside of your giant mouse head. Also you’re engaged to Kat Von D, who is bad on so many levels she’s like a dilapidated shopping mall. Remember when he proposed to her on Twitter? That has nothing to do with anything, I just like reminding people about that.
I understand why you wouldn’t like Kanye West — you’re not the first — but dude, don’t be a dick. Kanye is talented and super successful and a huge name in the industry and you’re wearing a f-cking mouse head, Joel.

From Us Weekly:
“Tonight, Joel put a ring on my finger — Too taken aback by its beauty and its meaning to post a pic right now,” the L.A. Ink star tweeted. But soon after that she wrote, “Doesn’t get anymore official,” and included a photo of her new ring. Two small skulls sit on either side of the black diamond, and the double band features smaller black stones.
“The biggest thank you to The Great Frog London for handcrafting the most important ring I will ever wear,” Kat Von D added.
Deadmau5 (real name: Joel Zimmerman), 31, celebrated the holidays with Kat Von D, 30, in his native Canada. The on-again-off-again couple stepped out together in Vancouver Dec. 27 holding hands, and showing off the engagement ring. The bride-to-be had a smile on her face as she held up her ring finger for photographers.
You know, all skulls and what not aside (not that there’s anything particularly wrong with the skull motif—it’s just not my thing), it’s a pretty nice ring. I’m sure lots of African people and their elephants probably had to die for it or whatever, but hey, a black diamond. Pretty nice, right? Pretty nice.

All right, this is a whole lot of story, but I promise it’s totally worth it. Just stick with me, ok?
So Kat Von D, right? We all know about Kat Von D. Except you might not know that she’s been dating Deadmau5, that DJ who is best known here at Evil Beet for talking shit about Madonna. They started dating in September, and now they’re engaged. But it’s all the stuff in between that’s really special.
First of all, they broke up last month. So they met in September, then started dating, things were cool in October, then they broke up in November. Here’s what Kat tweeted about it:
Man.. Can’t say I didn’t give it my best.
Man, I sure was wrong. But at least he made it a no-brainer to break that off. #lessonlearned
Now, we can get all of the “I told you so’s” outta the way… And move on.
Clarification: Deadmau5 and I are no longer together.
And Deadmau5 tweeted this stuff:
Going to spend a little while screwing my head back on
I guess im not cut out for relationships right now. and that’s all i really want to dwell on it right now.
I’ll figure it out. no hard feelings.
it happened too fast, i lost my balance and fell into a familiar dark place that im having difficulty with. she deserves someone stronger.
All those tweets happened on November 10th, and I’m not exactly sure when they got back together, but Deadmau5 was tweeting personal pictures of her again by November 17th. So he cheated on her (my guess – that’s what it sounds like, right?), and a week later they’re back together, and a month later they’re engaged. Awesome.
And here’s the really awesome part: the proposal. I don’t have to just describe it to you, you can see it yourself!
I can’t wait for Christmas so…. Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?
Yep. Deadmau5 proposed to Kat Von D via Twitter. And just for those of you who think you can’t propose without a ring, he had that issue covered too:
Kat said yes, also on Twitter:
Mi corazon!!! Thank you all for the lovely congratulations! Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiancé!
See? You can’t even make this stuff up. Well, you could, but no one would believe you because it’s so dumb.

Ok, let me do a quick recap on this feud, because it happened about three months ago. At this one concert, Madonna asked the crowd if anyone had seen molly. Now, “molly” is what the hip young kids call ecstasy, a drug that’s frequently associated with the kind of electronic dance music that Madonna is doing nowadays. She later claimed that she was referring to a song called “Have You Seen Molly” by her friend Cedric, and then Cedric added that his song is about an actual girl named Molly and none of them wacky drugs. But Deadmau5 didn’t buy it, and he didn’t think it was cool at all. Here’s what he had to say about it:
“Very classy there madonna. ‘HUR DUR HAS ANYONE SEEN MOLLY???’ such a great message for the young music lovers at ultra. Quite the f’n philanthropist. but hey, at least yer HIP AND TRENDY! f*cking cant smack my head hard enough right now.”
Their little feud fizzled out after they both made it clear that they weren’t changing their minds on the matter … OR SO WE THOUGHT. It actually turns out that Deadmau5 is still pretty pissed about the whole thing:
“You want to be ‘hip’ and ‘cool’ and ‘funky grandma’? Fine. It’s not my place to say you’re irrelevant. If you’re gonna come into my world, at least do it with a little more dignity. I understand she has millions more fans, and is way more successful than I’ll ever be. But it’s like talking about slavery at a f-cking blues concert. It’s inappropriate.”
I’m sorry, but “funky grandma” kind of made my day. I don’t know about all the “it’s like talking about slavery at a blues concert” business, but the image of “funky grandma” is definitely going to last in regards to Madonna.

Oh, she’s also completely full of shit, too. Thought you knew.
This was Madonna’s response to Deadmau5′s Facebook blitz yesterday, calling her out for being a f-cking fame troll and for glamorizing drug use in club music lovers. Madonna, if you were unaware, asked the crowd at a music festival, “How many people in this crowd have seen molly?”, which is a reference to the drug ecstasy. Deadmau5 blasted girlfriend for condoning – and promoting – drug use, and this was her random-assed, far-out, wicked hard-to-believe response. Of course.
Deadmau5 responded to the Tweet:
“Fair enough, I was just voicing my concerns as I usually do. +1 respect for clearing it up personally … regardless, just be a little more aware of what you should represent at EDM events, and I’ll watch my mouth.”
To which Madonna, “taking the high road,” said:
“Communication is always best. You should have called me first, we could have cleared it up ‘privately.’ ;) See you on the road.”
And Deadmau5 closed out the conversation by saying:
“well there you have it kids. i’ve said what i needed to say, which ill still stand by, and so did she. life goes on. no more talk of that.”
So more or less, Deadmau5 is no stupid mau5, and knows that Madonna’s completely full of shit and fillers. Much like we all thought to begin with, but you know, sometimes it’s just nice to have other people reinforce your thoughts, no matter how unpopular they can be at times.
