Deadmau5 Disses Madonna’s Drug Remarks, Calls Her a “F***ing Idiot”
Madonna just dropped her twelfth studio album, MDNA, proving that not-so-subtle drug references apparently never go out of style. The “Girl Gone Wild” singer recently took the stage at the Ultra Music Festival to introduce powerhouse DJ Avicii, and her remarks have caused a stir with electro connoisseur Deadmau5.
“I have a few questions for you,” Madonna said, addressing the crowd before Avicii’s set. “How many people in this crowd have seen Molly? Are you ready to dance? Are you ready for the next DJ, motherf***ers?”
Molly is slang for MDMA, the key ingredient in Ecstasy. MDMA… MDNA… Get it? The crowd cheered in response, indicating that many of them probably have Molly on speed dial. I wonder how her daughter, 15-year-old Lourdes Leon would feel?
I’ve been listening to MDNA all morning, and honestly, I’m not really sold. It’s a catchy dance album, and I’m excited to see Madonna in concert this fall, but I find these remarks disappointing.
It’s not that I agree or disagree with Madonna’s statements; I just think she is trying way too hard. Plus, it’s awkward to see a 54-year old mother of however many kids she has blindly advocating the use of some pretty serious drugs just to be shocking. It feels rather reductive, Madge.
How do you feel about Madonna’s love affair with Molly? Do you think her latest reinvention is club drug-loving candy raver, or is she simply doing it for the publicity buzz?
