Deadmau5 and Madonna Twitter feud

By Alexandra Heilbron on March 27, 2012 | 8 Comments

Tweets were thrown back and forth as Madonna and Deadmau5 (aka Joel Zimmerman, pictured at left) were in a short-lived Twitter feud. During the Queen of Pop’s recent performance at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, she asked the crowd, “How many people in this crowd have seen Molly?” The famous DJ assumed she was advocating drug use as “Molly” is a slang term for MDMA (ecstasy). Zimmerman went straight to Twitter to voice his opinion, writing, “Quite a f’n philanthropist. But hey, at least yer HIP AND TRENDY! F***ing cant smack my head hard enough right now.” He followed up with a few more disappointed tweets to which Madonna responded with a picture of herself wearing Minnie Mouse ears and a speech bubble saying, “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.” The two stars tweeted once more to dissolve the miscommunication and the feud ended. ~Renita Naraine

    Madonna’s such a BS artist. If she was asking about a song she would have said Have you heard have you seen molly. Not Have you seen molly. Nice try though.

    @Missy, nice try but no one uses proper grammar on twitter.

    F Madonna, always got some BS excuse for some BS action.

    @Chronium, nice try but maybe exercise a bit of proper comprehension when reading articles online.

    I think Deadmau5 has been wearing that headgear a little too long. Why would you bash someone on Twitter without knowing the full story. That’s the problem with social media. I think Madonna handled it really well.

    And for all of you who think she’s a “BS” artist, why do you think she’s been around for so many years? that’s talent!

    I think Madonna slyly covered up something she WAS trying to say.

    Chronium, read the article, she didn’t say it on twitter. She said it during a concert. Then Deadmau5 tweeted about it.

    Her new album is called MDNA… Ecstacy (aka Molly) is also called MDMA… HMMM, and she says doesn’t advocate drug use? Sounds like a senior citizen trying to impress the young’ns…
