Madonna and DJ Deadmau5 settle drugs row

Deadmau5 and Madonna appear to have settled a dispute, after he accused the singer of promoting drug use.
The dance DJ had labelled Madonna an 'idiot' and 'irresponsible' after he said she was promoting the use of MDMA at a music festival.
Madonna asked the crowd if they 'have seen Molly?' (slang for the drug) at this weekend's Ultra festival in Miami.
Madonna has now replied saying: 'I don't support drug use and I never have.'
During his initial rant on Twitter and Facebook Deadmau5 sarcastically wrote: 'Very classy there Madonna. HUR DUR HAS ANYONE SEEN MOLLY???' Such a great message for the young music lovers at Ultra [sic]'
In a Twitter question and answer session hosted yesterday (26 March) Deadmau5 - whose real name is Joel Zimmerman - and Madonna exchanged views on what had happened.
He said: '@MadonnaMDNAday You're a role model to 100's of millions. You have a powerful voice, EDM [Electronic Dance Music] could use your positive influence, not 'molly' talk.'
Madonna replied denying that she was promoting drug use, saying instead that her question to the crowd was in reference to another song.
'I was referring to the song called Have You Seen Molly? written by my friend Cedric Gervais,' she wrote.
Their exchange continued with a tweet from Deadmau5 to Madonna which said: 'Fair enough, I was just voicing my concerns as I usually do. +1 [sic] respect for clearing it up personally.'
In a fresh blog on his website Deadmau5 wrote: 'I'm not pro, or anti-drug, but I'll easily let you know that I'm pro-responsibility.'
MDMA is an active chemical found in ecstasy.

he's right, even though his response seems a bit odd. Madonna is desperately trying to connect to a young audience, DESPERATELY! I think she will record, say, or do anything to remain relevant to people under the age of 35, even making silly drug references.

@ Shane Lear: And you don't think M's "excuse" for what she meant was lame, to say the least? Why would she reference a song that probably few have heard of? No, she was caught out and has tried to back-peddle equally big time, looking ridiculous into the bargain at the same time, imho.

Okay, help me understand this statement by Deadmau5: 'I'm not pro, or anti-drug, but I'll easily let you know that I'm pro-responsibility.' While that statement wants one to believe that he's "neutral" on this topic he'll quickly come to judgement and voice his opinion if anyone appears to be pro-drugs? Makes no f'ing sense to me. He just needs to say, "I'm anti drugs and anti anyone making a pro-drugs statement or reference."

While I can say that I've never done any recreational drugs, whether or not Madonna makes a reference is not going to lead to an increase in drug use. At the end of the day it's the individuals responsibility to decide for themselves. Maybe Deadmau5 should consider making Christian versus club/dance music to appeal to the right audience. Hehe

Well, he got his name all over the press for like 30 seconds, so I'll give him that much. Now it's time for him to STFU and slither back into obscurity, whoever he is.
