Deadmau5’s Soundcloud Account Hacked, Filled With Selena Gomez Songs

Deadmau5‘s Soundcloud was hacked yesterday, with “online security group” OurMine managing to get inside the Canadian’s (now old) account, only to flood it with Selena Gomez songs.

As Billboard reports, all of the Selena Gomez songs have now been deleted from the Soundcloud account in question, but that didn’t mean the end of the hacking shenanigans.

OurMine says it had also managed to get credit card info, phone numbers and even some nudes belonging to Deadmau5, aka Joel Zimmerman.

Being a hacking group trying to get a gig in online security, as opposed to blokes who simply wish to the see the world burn, OurMine alerted the producer to their break in, sending him a heads-up tweet.

Unlike his usual opinionated, bombastic and occasionally vitriolic public self, Deadmau5 tried to be chill about the whole thing, simply replying:

OurMine kept going though, telling the helmet-wearing music extraordinaire the personal information they had somehow accessed:

Clearly his jimmies were rustled though, which is understandable when you have to put up with unexpected grief:

Much like a woman asking her pet echidna to eat ants attacking her, the Torontonian EDM superstar has sicked Google onto the trail of OurMine. He’s also taken the opportunity to take up the ‘deadmau5’ slug on Soundcloud, where he previously had ‘fuckmylife’.

You can go check out the new Soundcloud page over here, and the still unfolding drama over at on his Twitter feed.

No word has come out of the Selena Gomez camp as to whether this was an elaborate PR stunt to boost publicity for her upcoming Australian tour.
