Madonna And Deadmau5 Kiss And Make Up
Madonna has made peace with dance music producer Deadmau5 after he accused her of glamorizing drug use during a festival appearance on Saturday.
The Material Girl made a surprise visit to the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Florida and footage from the event showed Madonna using the word 'molly', a slang term for MDMA - the chemical name for ecstasy.
Deadmau5 called the singer "irresponsible" and blasted her in a series of posts on his Twitter.com page, writing, "At the end of the day, it's a slap in the face. associating a potentially harmful substance to the work and passion we put in to make art... Are you so f**king uncreative after a 30-year career you have to resort to drug references?"
Madonna, who sparked controversy by naming her new album MDNA, has now reached out to the star to explain she wasn't making a reference to drugs, but instead talking about a song called Have You Seen Molly?
She sent Deadmau5 a message via Twitter.com with a picture of herself dressed in Minnie Mouse ears with a speech bubble which reads, "From one mouse to another. I don't support drug use and I never have. I was referring to the song called 'Have you seen Molly?' written by my friend Cedric Gervais who I almost worked with on my album."
Madonna adds, "Communication is always best. You should have called me first, we could have cleared it up 'privately'. See you on the road."
Deadmau5 replied, "Fair enough, I was just voicing my concerns as I usually do... Respect for clearing it up personally... Well there you have it kids. I've said what I needed to say, which I'll still stand by, and so did she. Life goes on. No more talk of that... Regardless, just be a little more aware of what you *should* represent at EDM (electronic dance music) events, and I'll watch my mouth."
