Madonna, Deadmau5 quit fighting over 'Molly' comment
It figures Madonna would find a way to pick a fight with DJ and producer deadmau5 after her appearance at Miami's Ultra Music Festival on Saturday. It seems he took umbrage on Facebook at her use of the term "Molly" when introducing Avicii, to which she responded with a sarcastic twitpic. Oh good, an old-fashioned geekfight!
After Madge asked the crowd, "Has anyone here seen Molly?" (ostensibly as in "molecular," as in ecstasy -- watch it above), deadmau5 wrote a screed on his Facebook page asking, "That's your big contribution to EDM? Thats your big message to ultra attendies? hipsterspeak for looking for drugs? f--- off you f---ing IDIOT. f---." He followed with another reading, "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---ing cant smack my head hard enough right now."
That seems a bit over the top, if not deserved, since she called her new album MDNA, an apparent wink and a nod to the term MDMA, which is the chemical name for X, methylenedioxy-methylamphetamine. But then Madge tweeted back, posting a photo from 100 years ago with a balloon reading, "From one mouse to another, I don't support drug use and I never have. I was referring to the song "Have You Seen Molly" written by my friend Cedric Gervais who I almost worked with on my album ..." Yeah, sure, because all the 20-year-olds in the crowd knew you were referring to a DJ playing on the same stage at 1 p.m. Sunday. For the record, Gervais says the song isn't about drugs. Listen to it below.
In any event, they made up on Twitter, with deadmau5 accepting the explanation by tweeting, "fair enough, i was just voicing my concerns as i usually do. +1 respect for clearing it up personally." If tweeting can, in fact, be considered personal.
