Madonna responded to dance icon Deadmau5’s accusations that she was glorifying drugs recently at a Miami music festival.

DID YOU KNOW MOLLY WAS A SLANG TERM FOR ECSTASY? FROM CHEESE TO BISCUITS, WE’VE GOT THE INFORMATION YOU NEED TO STAY IN THE LOOP. CLICK HERE TO LEARN THE TERMS.

The material girl says that she wasn’t promoting ecstasy when she asked the crowd if they had seen Molly. She claims that she was referring to a song written by a friend of hers.

She tweeted Deadmau5 with a photo that said “From one mouse to another I don’t support drug use and I never have. I was referring to the song called Have You Seen Molly written by my friend Cedric Gervais who I almost worked with on my album.”

She went on to say that the musical wizard, whose real name is Joel Zimmerman, should have come to her first about the comments. While the two have made nice, you have to wonder if there was just a little drug reference being hinted at during her appearance at the festival.

Either way, Madonna’s steadfast assurance that she does not endorse drug use, was a good sign for any drug users who believed that she was sending them a shout out.

It’s the image ravers hate. They are all a bunch of drug-using mushheads.

Even the LA Weekly took a shot at this blog when Teensavers reminded parents to exercise caution when it comes to teens attending raves. Now Teensavers didn’t allude to the fact that everyone that attends these events are on drugs. The Teensavers teams wanted to remind parents of some of the younger attendees that drugs are used at these events.

While raves are supposed to be 18 and over only crowds, some minors do sneak in. A rave in Los Angeles saw that first hand. At the Electric Daisy Carnival in 2010, a 15-year-old girl died of a drug overdose. LA leaders called for a crackdown.

But not all ravers use drugs. Many go and enjoy the music and the lights and the activity drug free. And some musical acts are outspoken about the linking of music festivals and drug use.

Case in point: The Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Madonna was there to introduce Avicii. Trying to keep herself relevant and hip with the younger crowd, she asked, “how many of you have seen Molly?”

Molly isn’t a singer on the bill. Molly is slang for Ecstasy. And while some of the crowd let out a roar, it didn’t leave everyone in the dance community laughing.

Deadmau5, one of the hottest acts on the planet, didn’t like what Madge had to say. In fact, the star (real name Joel Zimmerman) lashed out at Madonna via his Twitter and Facebook accounts.

“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! fucking cant smack my head hard enough right now.”

The Huffington Post posted an exchange between the musical producer and a fan. You can read it HERE. The fan called him out asking him where he’d be without ecstasy. Zimmerman didn’t skip a beat saying “i’d give up my entire career to remove the fucking rampant stupidity thats plagued my favorite type of music in an INSTANT.”

It’s good to see that some of the popular people in a genre stand up and speak out against drug use. Imagine if we saw the biggest names in TV and movies follow Deadmau5’s lead? It might be refreshing. Instead we still have movie and TV stars who are the poster children for drug use like Seth Rogan and Charlie Sheen.

It certainly would be nice if someone of stature like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie came out and say that the Pitts are against pill abuse or heroin is for has-beens. It would be magnificent if Justin Bieber told his millions of fans that drugs will never be cool. Deadmau5 may not be a household name, but to dance fans, he’s well-known.

It’s great to see him relay a positive anti-drug message!
