DeadMau5 accuses Madonna of being a drug pusher
DeadMau5 has become vocal after Madonna allegedly referenced (and therefore, according to DeadMau5, advocated for the use of) ecstasy at this year’s Ultra Music Festival in Miami, stating that she is pandering to “extreme bullshit lifestyles” that dredge up the “shit that really held electronic dance music down for years.”
Here is what Madge said that ruffled DeadMau5’s feathers:
“How many people in this crowd have seen molly? Are you ready to dance? Are you ready to sweat? Are you ready to make some noise? Are you ready for the next DJ, motherfuckers?”
Molly is in fact a street term for MDMA, but is Madonna really pandering to ecstasy-popping fans? Madonna has denied the allegations, saying that she was merely referencing the song “Have You Seen Molly?” written by her friend Cedric Gervais, so it’s unclear whether she was begging her fans to get high. What is clear, though, is how high Deadmau5 is perched atop his DJ pulpit.
