She continued, "Are you ready for the next DJ, motherf---ers?" making her "cool-mom" schtick all the more painful. While the crowd responded with cheers, EDM star Deadmau5 (aka Joel Zimmerman) was less than pleased with Madonna's behavior.
The producer went straight to his Twitter and Facebook accounts to chide the singer for her irresponsible conflation of MDMA and electronic dance music. "Very classy there madonna. "HUR DUR HAS ANYONE SEEN MOLLY???" such a great message for the young music lovers at ultra," he posted on Facebook Monday morning. "quite the f'n philanthropist. but hey, at least yer HIP AND TRENDY! f---ing cant smack my head hard enough right now."
"I can appriciate her meteoric career, and all good deeds done, but WHAT THE F--- WAS THAT?" he continued. "That's your big contribution to EDM? Thats your big message to ultra attendies? hipsterspeak for looking for drugs? f--- off you f---ing IDIOT."
Meanwhile on Twitter, Zimmerman defended his comments against users who attacked them as hypocritical, with one fan saying the DJ would be "pointless" if it wasn't for audiences using drugs. "i'd give up my entire career to remove the f---ing rampant stupidity thats plagued my favorite type of music in an INSTANT," Zimmerman responded.
Madge has taken some flack already for the drug-referencing title of her album MDNA, which is out now. Is it harmless fun, a dangerous message or just Madonna courting controversy?
