Deadmau5 proposed to tattoo artist and reality star Kat von D over Twitter on Saturday. The producer-DJ popped the question by Tweeting a picture of a ring, writing "I can't wait for Christmas so.... Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?"

Von D responded with a simple and emphatic affirmative. She later followed up on the sentiment: "Mi corazon!!! Thank you all for the lovely congratulations! Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiancé!" The 31-year-old Canadian, whose real name is Joel Zimmerman, also reflected on the development to his 1.8 million Twitter followers:  "holy fucking shit. im engaged and stuff!" he wrote. "thanks for the well wishes and support from the horde and everyone else! brb while i spend the rest of my evening with my future wife :)"

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
