Madonna ticked off famous DJ Deadmau5 this weekend during a performance at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Madonna yelled out to the crowd “How many people in this crowd have seen Molly”, which is a reference to MDMA, an ingredient in the drug ecstasy.
Deadmau5 took his Facebook to vent his frustration over her “glamorizing” drug use in an attempt to look hip:
very classy there madonna. “HUR DUR HAS ANYONE SEEN MOLLY???” such a great message for the young music lovers at ultra. quite the f’n philanthropist. but hey, at least yer HIP AND TRENDY! f****** cant smack my head hard enough right now.
i can appriciate her meteoric career, and all good deeds done, but WHAT THE **** WAS THAT? That’s your big contribution to EDM? Thats your big message to ultra attendies? hipsterspeak for looking for drugs?
He then took some time to think things over and posted a pretty long explanation on his Tumblr page. You can read the full post here.
What do you think? Is Madonna trying way too hard to seem “cool”? Was she crossing the line with the drug talk?
Speaking of Deadmau5, didn’t he ROCK the house outside at the Grammy’s with Foo Fighters? That was pretty crazy.
