Madonna Trashed By Deadmau5 For Glamorization of Ecstasy

by at . Comments

Madonna has come under attack from Deadmau5, one of the world's most famous DJs, for glamorizing ecstasy use, allegedly, during a recent concert.

Her Madgesty took the stage at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami this weekend, asking crowd, "How many people in this crowd have seen molly?"

"Molly" is a slang term for MDMA, one of the key ingredients in ecstasy, a drug hugely popular within the electronic dance music community.

Incidentally (or not) Madonna's new album, which drops today, is called MDNA. Watch her address the crowd at the 45-second mark below:

The crowd apparently loved the veiled inquiry from Madonna, but Deadmau5 is not a fan at all, going on Facebook and tearing her a new one.

"Very classy there madonna. 'HUR DUR HAS ANYONE SEEN MOLLY???' such a great message for the young music lovers at ultra," he wrote.

The Mau5 added, "Quite the f'n philanthropist. but hey, at least yer HIP AND TRENDY! f*cking cant smack my head hard enough right now."

Bottom line: Mind-altering drugs are not cool, ravers. So says a man-mau5 whose fan base is probably on them 97 percent of the time.


He and Madonna cleared it. Or, Madonna advised him that she was referring to a song made by her friend, Calvin Gervais, who was at the festival. My thing is, I agree with Madonna. This should have been privately discussed. I respect Deadmau5's opinion, but he jumped to conclusions without knowing the facts. Why? Because she's older and that makes her brain cells slow? I'm really getting tired of the ageism being practiced with female celebs over a certain age. It's such a lack of respect with it. She clearly knew what she was talking about, and not trying to be hip. She also has never glorified drug use. If anything, where is his outrage at Calvin Gervain for making a song as such. I don't see a twitter rant on that.


you women haters are just against Madonna and Demi moore bcos they are woman. what about Hugh hefner und Donald trump or Micky jagger? are they not older than Madonna and Demi but they still do what they want. Just bcos this 2 women are dating younger guys that is why you hate them. women also have thier Rights to date younger men just like men has thier Rights to date younger women,leave women alone, let them be.....


It's one thing to do drugs and have a fan base that's high as fukc, but it's another to glamorize it... and Madonna of all people????!!! Take a couple seats you old biatch.


@ wouldn't wanna be in "almost a coma" at a drug-infested venue like that. They tromp on ya man! They'd be so high and nobody would be willing to call the paramedics for ya! You'd be better off at a Glenn Campbell concert. Mellow. Uh-huh, much better.


I like deadmau5, I like Madonna, & I have enjoyed some MDMA on occasion. Sure, �drugs are bad�, but once in a while most of us are gonna catch a buzz one way or another. Just stay safe, careful, & hydrated and you'll be okay.


deadmau5 has released a statement of sorts explaining his words. You can find it on Facebook.....good for him
for taking a stand against illegal drugs an he also talks about responsibilities as artists.


mau5 is very outspoken and never really PC. Its just the way he is. Love him or hate him--I've seen him in Vegas many times and he's one of my favorites. Deadmau5 creates his own stuff and doesn't spin others' stuff. And I don't smell or use drugs. Love the glow sticks though!


Why would anyone want to go and stand amongst a bunch of smelly people with glow sticks and pacifiers and listen to crappy techno music if they weren't on drugs? Personally, I would have to be almost in a coma to do it.

Leave her alone. She’s gonna be 16 soon and then 17 and then 18, and then she might show her knees and then what's gonna happen?

My husband and I are not planning on getting a divorce. I know Alex Rodriguez through Guy Oseary, who manages both of us. I brought my kids to a Yankee game. I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez. I have nothing to do with the state of his marriage or what spiritual path he may choose to study.
