Zedd defends Justin Bieber’s “dubstep”

Watch out Bieber, it’s a cruel world out there. Good thing you have Zedd looking out for you!

Sometimes I wake up and I read these headlines and I think to myself, “What if these pseudo-celeb artists are just sitting around in the studio, bored as hell, thinking: ‘How can we fuck with our fans?’” So either Zedd is just a master troll, or he really doesn’t listen to or read the shit that comes out of his mouth. You may recall my recent rant about Zedd and Lady Gaga supposedly being good friends and how their “pop EDM” could potentially ruin EDM. This just makes me think even lower of Zedd.

You also may recall last year when Justin Bieber told USA Today “What’s big right now are beats that are in the clubs, like dubstep. So I want to mess with that stuff.” Key words people: what’s big right now. Justin Bieber doesn’t give a fuck or shit about what dubstep is or where it came from. He is a puppet that will do whatever the people who write his music and manage his career tell him to do. I guarantee he doesn’t even know how to write dubstep or know how many beats per minute it is. So how can Zedd, a talented artist, actually say As Long As You Love Me is a good song?

“I only just got to hear the whole song and I thought it was amazing,” he says. “First of all it is an amazing production, whoever produced that song. Let’s take Ellie Goulding. Ellie Goulding is an incredible singer and one of the coolest artists out there at the moment. If she sang that song everyone would love it. Everyone would love it! And there would be no hate because it’s a great song, it’s written really well and it would be a great vocal performance. But it’s easy to hate on Justin Bieber just because there has to be that person that everyone loves to hate. But I think it’s a fantastic song and I’m happy to be the person to speak it out loud because I don’t care, I really love that song.”

He goes on to say, “People have a lot of prejudice, they love to hate,” he continued. “I would much more appreciate people saying what they love than bitching about what they don’t like.”

I’m sorry Zedd but you’ve reached the ultimate douche status. You started this war and the best you can respond with on Twitter is “cool bro! I don’t give a shit!” and “grow up”? You obviously need some clarity.

    naaaaah, I love you Jordan and I am well versed in EDM but I agree with Zedd. though Justin Bieber is a major tool for getting involved with whatever his managers will tell him to do I actually like the song (I wouldn’t download it lol), it’s well produced and catchy, I wouldn’t mind it coming on the radio and I have sung along to it on one occasion (with a girl of course haha). I don’t really find anything wrong with ‘poppy’ EDM (like some of Zedd’s imo fantastic tracks off clarity) or ‘electronic pop’ like Biebs over here as long as they stay in their separate spheres and well made. I think this is what Zedd was trying to say, asking people not to hate just because he encroached on a genre many of us hold in close protection. What I really hate is when producers plaster their name on pop tracks for fame (David Guetta) when they are respected for club music. As long as producers stay anonymous (you never hear Afrojack getting credit for ‘give me everything tonight’) and let the poster boy artist like Gaga or Biebs take center stage and the song stays the radio I won’t hate. I mean after all, pop by definition IS what will sell to the largest crowd, whether that’s Baby or popstep I don’t care

    First off: Lots of butthurt in that post.

    Second, JB doesn’t write his own songs.

    Third: Electrohouse artists don’t do dubstep well EG Scorpion move, Lucky Date’s remix of Oh No, ect.

    Bieber is a tool, enough said. But shit, if Zedd likes it, then he likes it. Who gives a shit? He’s made a hell of a name for himself in the EDM community and just giving him shit for his opinions is just plain sad. Just because he says he likes it doesn’t mean you or his fans or anyone else has to like it. I feel like you’re bashing zedd simply because of what he says. The true value of an artist is in his music, not in his words. Judge him by his music, not the other shit.
