Madonna Slammed For Ecstasy Reference

Madonna is in the news for causing a stir at the Ultra Music Festival Saturday in Miami. According to NBC Miami, she made a surprise appearance to promote her new dance album. It was her reference to the drug ecstasy that has Deadmau5, one of the hottest DJ-producers in the electronic music industry, standing up with his criticisms.

Madonna asked the crowd, “I have a question for you, how many of you in the crowd have seen Molly?” ”Molly” is slang for ecstasy, and upon Madonna’s reference the entire crowd cheered.

Deadmau5 slammed her Monday on Facebook and Twitter, calling it irresponsible behavior to glamorize the drug. Junior Hernandez, who claims to be drug-free was there on Saturday. He said, “It was kinda weird, but at the same time everyone’s on the drug. Madonna, I think she thought she could get away with it.”

Madonna has already received criticism for titling of her new club-friendly album, MDNA, which many consider to be an illusion to the main ingredient in ecstasy, MDMA. Hernandez also said, “I think it is smart what she did to promote her album and it’s all about the money.”

I have been writing as long as I can remember, even carrying tattered notebooks with me through the streets and strip clubs of New Orleans, in the midst of my heroin addiction. I lived a life saturated in heroin until Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, leaving me to fend for myself, eventually facing my demons and coming face to face with my addiction. I have been clean for five years, and since then I have become a mother, graduated college, and started a writing career. I have a B.A. in Mass Media Communication, with a minor in Journalism. I have also written one published book, Through Both Hell and High Water: A Memoir of Addiction and Hurricane Katrina, which tells the story of those dark days I spent in New Orleans after the storm, battling with addiction amidst a natural disaster. I am the blogger and news curator for RecoveryNowTV, and I love sharing the stories of the world, as well as my own personal journey, with my readers. I hope that my words can touch others out there, struggling with addiction.
