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.”
