I’m aware that I can be a fucking diva. Yes, I am aware than [sic] I have more than one complex.” And finally, he addressed the fellow EDM star directly, saying, “So, YES @skrillex I’m SUPER SAD I’m not as cheerful, and super inspired by life like you. And I’m so SORRY I’m an asshole. But how about you let me worry about that shit.”
