Deadmau5 Proposes To Kat Von D On Twitter, Should Change Name To DeadChivalr3
It's the love story of the century!
DJ Deadmau5, who is currently best known for wearing a giant mouse head and picking fights with people more famous than him, has proposed to his girlfriend, TV tattoo artist/Jesse James apologist Kat Von D. And what method, pray tell, did the hopeless romantic use to propose marriage to his beloved? None other than that most meaningful of social media, Twitter, which excels at conveying pithy, 140-character expressions of love quickly and efficiently (assuming the person checks their @-replies regularly):
Touched by this meticulously executed proposal and thoughtful choice of emoticons, Kat Von D had no choice but to tweet back in the affirmative:
And Deadmau5 saw that it was good:
Each of the happy lovers then returned from checking their iPhones on the toilet to tattooing people and making “EDM,” respectively.
As glad as I am that the nation's lazy now effectively have a “proposing” app on their smart phones, I have to wonder how long this blessed union is going to last. Between her first divorce from fellow tattoo artist (and distant relative of mine?) Oliver Peck and her dubious relationships with Nikki Sixx and famous cheater Jesse James, I'm starting to think Kat might not have the best romantic radar.
The proposal is also somewhat shocking considering the two only started dating this past September and broke up just last month. Nothing fixes relationship problems like tying yourselves together legally and financially in a semi-permanent fashion!
That said, I am very excited to see what kinds of hideous projects they collaborate on, as well as what they tweet at each other as this relationship inevitably implodes. Mazel tov, you crazy kids. This is going to be fun.
