Madonna surprised partygoers at Ultra Music Festival over the weekend when she took the stage to introduce EDM star Avicii. But one of dance music’s biggest stars didn’t meet her appearance with such excitement.
Deadmau5 took to his Facebook after her cameo to criticize the singer (who just dropped her album MDNA this week) for a joke she made. It was Madonna asking “How many people in this crowd have seen Molly?” that left the producer a bit perturbed as Molly is a thinly veiled reference to the drug MDMA, which is also referenced in the title of Madge’s new album.
“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,” he wrote on his site.
“Seriously, i giveth not a f—ing single F— for slating on madonna for reaching an entirely NEW level of idiocy … i can appreciate her meteoric career, and all good deeds done, but WHAT THE F— WAS THAT? That’s your big contribution to EDM? Thats your big message to ultra attendees? Hipster speak for looking for drugs? F— off you f—ing IDIOT. F—.”
