DeadKat, KatMau5, Kat Von Dead - whatever you called them, Kat Von D and Deadmau5's monikers made for an endlessly entertaining game of "name the power couple." Alas, celeb journalists from coast to coast are mourning the loss of their creative liberties. Kat Von D and Deadmau5 are no more.
True to reality-star form, Von D promptly tweeted up a post-split frenzy last Saturday. Kat logged a total of four tweets, beginning with: "Man.. Can't say I didn't give it my best." Next came, "Man, I sure was wrong. But at least he made it a no-brainer to break that off. #lessonlearned," and, "Now, we can get all of the 'I told you so's' outta the way... And move on."
For the estimated three people she left perplexed, Von D offered a final enlightening tweet: "Clarification: Deadmau5 and I are no longer together." Phew. I thought she was talking about the emotionally trying process of growing orchids.
Not to be out-tweeted, Deadmau5 deployed three hefty messages of his own, starting with: "Going to spend a little while screwing my head back on. i guess im not cut out for relationships. ill figure it out. no hard feelings."
Deadmau5 then further plumbed his psychological depths, tweeting, "it happened too fast, i lost my balance and fell into a familiar dark place that im having difficulty with. she deserves someone stronger."
The DJ closed with a more brand-friendly "...and thats it for the personal stuff...on with our regularly scheduled Deadmau5 crap."
Though KatMau5 is dead, let's hope the two pursue future partners with equal or greater power-couple possibilities. We're so over Brangelina.
