So DJ AM is dead. For those of you who read the site, he’s been someone I constantly rag on. I’ve met the dude a handful of times and he was always surprisingly cool with me, except for maybe twice where he pretty much told me to fuck myself and told people I know he hated me, but overall, it’s understandable. I always pulled stupid stunts on him over the internet.
Just last week I was ripping into his ugly girlfriend on Facebook who he reportedly broke up with and spiraled into a depression over and now he’s gone and killed himself or at least allegedly killed himself, even after survivng a plane crash, a drug adiction, obesity and an attempted suicide, making millions along the way.
On a sidenote, DJ AM was filming his own intervention type show, so the fact that this is drug related is so fucked up…..
My DJ AM relationship started back in 2004 when I first started the site and he did this interview with me:
Stepfather: So what’s the deal with DJs, why does every girl want a piece of the DJ?
DJ AM: DJs rule… Every girl wants to bone us cause we are the center of attention… And that’s what every girl wants to be.
Stepfather: You used to be fat, I am fat, is life really that much better being thin? Do girls appreciate a fat man, or is your life that much better now that you aren’t fat?
DJ AM: I hated being fat. I miss knocking back a rack of ribs and bakers dozen of Krispie Kremes for a snack but I like being thin for once…
Stepfather: Rumor is that when you lose a lot of weight, your penis gets bigger, is that true?
DJ AM: Yes, my penis has gotten bigger.
Stepfather: I am a fat man and I am scared to sleep with fat women for 2 main reasons, first because fat is disgusting and second because fat gets in the way of sex and I am scared I won’t be able to penetrate fully, how do you feel about sex with fat chicks?
DJ AM: I have a friend who is skinny and he only fucks fat girls. I think he likes the padding and feeling like hes doing some kinky shit. Thing is, your right. If the chick is THAT fat you can’t dig it all the way in cause there are rolls blocking you.
Stepfather: When it comes to sex, what’s the craziest thing you have done, what do you brad to your boys about?
DJ AM: I used to slap the shit out of this one girl who LOVED to be smacked in the face. Iâ€™m not much of a bragger anymore though. I grew old and just like it normal.
Stepfather: How much drugs funnel through the clubs you play at, because I once hung out with a stripper, we were sitting next to each other on the bus and she was telling me that clubs have so many drugsâ€¦I once did an 8-ball of crystal in a trailer park in Dallas, that’s actually where my blog started. How do you feel about drugs and what is your drug of choice.
DJ AM: Drugs RULE! I used to be a crack head for about 2 years. Nothing is more fun then being so wasted you throw up on yourself at 9:45am on your way to downtown LA to buy crack rocks from the mouth of a 12 year old Mexican kid. Drugs are all over the clubs I DJ. I just like sitting back and watching people learn the hard way.
Stepfather: Would you sleep with your stepdaughter/stepsister if she was really hot? If you said no, would you rethink it if you only met her when she was legal or if she was only in your life for a couple of years?
DJ AM: I would not bone my step ANYTHING. That’s just too damn funky and close to home… Well, if she was Adriana Lima then yes.. but only in the ass.
Stepfather: Do you feel that your music is being overshadowed by your celebrity acquaintances, friends, and lovers?
DJ AM: No.
Stepfather: How do you feel about providing us with some random gossip that no one will read, but you feel you need to get off your chest and what’s the deal with celebrity obsession, I like to pretend I care about celebrity, but I only do it for traffic to the site.
DJ AM: Hmmmmmm… gotta think about that…
Stepfather: I am an alcoholic, and I like to drink everything, including rubbing alcohol and tang, what is your drink of choice?
DJ AM: I am a sober recovering alkie… I aint had a drink in 7 years.
Stepfather: What are the chances that you would put me on permanent guestlist to all your events?
DJ AM: Slim to none cause there is no permanent guest list. But, if you give me a reach around in the booth I may get you in to 1 club.
Stepfather: Could you hook me up with naked pics of celebrities, it seems to really drive a lot of traffic to my site and I would really appreciate it, no one would know it is from you.I am thinking a DJ AM sex tape or something, is that likely?
DJ AM: Not a good look for you, got no pics
Stepfather: Who are your musical influences? What kind of music do you dig? What type of music do you play? What gets your dancefloor bumping?
DJ AM: I am strongly influnced by the music of David Hasselhoff. What a voice on that stunning man.
Stepfather: Are you going to pimp the expression that’s porno in LA, I think you have the visibility to make this the next big expression, you down?
DJ AM: It could be… but my girl is not feeling that word. I gotta break it in slowly.
Stepfather: I once saw a picture of you in high-end streetwear, have you always supported streetwear? How do you feel about the popularity of the homeless look, I remember when it was limited to people like me, who actually used food stamps while the hottest thing was Brandon Walsh from 90210…
When his Nicole Richie relationship broke and my site was the top result for DJ AM, he hit me up asking me to remove the shit. I went along with it and as he got more and more famous, he started answering me less and less, but when he came to Montreal invited me to come out to his party where I was carted around with Nicole Richie drinking free booze all night.
Then a few months later, I emailed him saying Nicole Richie is a whore who cheated on him with Steve-O and that’s when he stopped acknowledging me completely.
So being the internet asshole I am, I spent the next 4 years busting his balls, teasing him, sending him stupid emails, being an overall pain in the ass and he just constantly ignored me. He’d come to Montreal, I’d go to the events, he’d tell people he hated my site and then this year, on Twitter, I finally got him to laugh at a few of my jokes and I hope that he got the whole thing was just fuckin’ jokes and didn’t stem from actual hatred…I figure if you’re out there, you’re a target or some shit and I know people out there are expecting me to have a field day with this, but I won’t, because he was an easy target in life for what he did with his DJ talent, but not really into continuing it now that he’s dead.
Either way, I do feel sad for the dude, he’s been through a lot and accomplished a lot and is really well respected and loved. I feel sad that the DJ AM jokes have to end and aren’t funny anymore, but I can honestly say I was glad to have met the dude the times that I did and despite deserving to get shanked for some of the shit I pulled, he would always shake my hand while shaking his head in disappointment and I always got a kick out of that shit.
So RIP Motherfucker.
Here’s a video of him celebrating his bday this year….
