At the Ultra Music Festival in Miami on Saturday night, Madonna took the stage and asked the 150,000 concertgoers, How many people in this crowd have seen molly? While Madonna was just trying to have fun, electronic producer Deadmau5 -- real name Joel Zimmerman -- caught wind of Madonna's reference to MDMA, the active ingredient in ecstasy, and took to Twitter and Facebook to rant against the top-selling female recording artist of all-time.

Very classy there madonna. 'HUR DUR HAS ANYONE SEEN MOLLY???' such a great message for the young music lovers at ultra, Deadmau5 posted on Facebook Monday morning. quite the f'n philanthropist. but hey, at least yer HIP AND TRENDY! f--king cant smack my head hard enough right now.

Molly is a slang term for MDMA, the active ingredient in ecstasy, which is the drug most commonly associated with the electronic dance music (EDM) that artists like Deadmau5 produce. In his rant, Deadmau5 slams Madonna for cementing that negative association even further.

Seriously, i giveth not a f--king single F--K for slating on madonna for reaching an entirely NEW level of idiocy, he said. I can appriciate her meteoric career, and all good deeds done, but WHAT THE F--K WAS THAT? That's your big contribution to EDM? Thats your big message to ultra attendies? hipsterspeak for looking for drugs? f--k off you f--king IDIOT. f--k.

After his Facebook posts, Deadmau5 went to his official Tumblr and wrote a post entitled, Responsibility. The blog post was much more detailed, and while it still called out Madonna for her blatant promotion of a negative drug, he takes some responsibility for his actions too.

Whether i like it or not, and like every other walk of life, whether you're becoming an adult, or climbing up the corporate ladder, or blazing a path in your chosen profession, im in a position now where i should be responsible, he said. And yup... i should be a little more careful about what i advocate, and i certainly try to be. being an advocate of something or another certainly has it's place... drawing promotion towards a good cause, enabling others to do what they desire to do, help others to create something, etc. and all that other good s--t.

He also describes in better detail why he doesn't want the EDM scene -- his scene -- affiliated with such negative connotations.

I've always been into electronic music, as far back as i can remember... and around the beginning, i really do remember the times the events i loved were pretty much outlawed by my city simply due to its speculated over-excessive drug use, and the media coverage that everyone loves to lap up around it. Yeah, that bummed me out... kinda made me feel like... how could something so damn interesting, artful, fun and just plain cool, be frowned upon by most.... but look at us now, allthough not completely, and never like to be completely, the dark veil has been lifted slightly and the music and good times and technology is starting to shine through more and more than the latest breaking news about such and such a drug found only at these underground TECHNO RAVES - Tonight on fox!

Now that a couple of days have passed since the incident at the Ultra Music Festival, Deadmau5 is ready to move forward.

Well, i gotta get outta here and get back to work in Toronto, he said on Facebook. I stand by my points on responsibility and what happened, but on hindsight, yeah, could have used alot less explicitives and possibly worded it better, but... you know me. sometimes i just rage out like a spoiled kid who just had his WoW account deleted. damn charachter flaws. DAMN CLOUDSONGS. so rare man.

What do you think of this incident? Was Deadmau5 overreacting, or was Madonna wrong to reference molly? Below is the full text from Deadmau5's Tumblr rant, which can also be viewed in its uncensored form on his website. Read the rant, and let us know your impressions in the comments section below. 

Responsibility

This is certainly what it should be about, and it's what im about regarding the Madonna issue.

Whether i like it or not, and like every other walk of life, whether you're becoming an adult, or climbing up the corporate ladder, or blazing a path in your chosen profession, im in a position now where i should be responsible. And yup... i should be a little more careful about what i advocate, and i certainly try to be. being an advocate of something or another certainly has it's place... drawing promotion towards a good cause, enabling others to do what they desire to do, help others to create something, etc. and all that other good s--t.

Im not perfect. i have my vices, and some of them are probably more harmful than a recreational drug or two... but i do know that i am at the very least morally obligated not to blatantly inflict or advocate anything that's detrimental to society, others health, etc.

my last rant has yielded some interesting points and arguments from both camps no doubt, but i should at least be clear on where i stand with advocacy (which im almost certain isnt even a word).

I smoke cigarettes. yeah, it's s--tty i know, and its a personal problem that i struggle with... and i know how much it sucks, so my tour isnt exactly sponsored by a cowboy of sorts. I drink a little bit too, which im sure has killed more people than double the combined amount of overdoses on any recreational drug you can name.... so, i try to make an effort as not to blatantly condone it in situations where the youngins are around. and trust me, the mau5 horde has plenty of little ones... So, i dont see the dire need to be a constant d--kf--k and stamp my vices all over my media outlets. Sometimes it happens, but, of course, my intent isnt to make any look cool or desireable.

Now, weve taken EDM so far in the past decade, so goddamned far. It really hurts me to see rampant ADVOCATION of extreme bulls--t lifestyles to a genre that spans pretty much any age gap these days.  Of course, ill always have my opinions about this or that... and yeah, its my personal choice not to do drugs, but im not on a fucking crusade to stamp out other peoples personal choices by no means. f--k being a crusader. Im not pro, or anti drug... but... ill easily let you know that im pro-responsibility.

Its just that simple... you can have an excellent standard of life providing you had a sense of responsibility to yourself, and those around you, REGARDLESS of whatever choices you make in your life... either good or bad (which is the opinion part).

I just feel like ive been kicked in the b--ls for a dollar. I've always been into electronic music, as far back as i can remember... and around the beginning, i really do remember the times the events i loved were pretty much outlawed by my city simply due to its speculated over-excessive drug use, and the media coverage that everyone loves to lap up around it. Yeah, that bummed me out... kinda made me feel like... how could something so damn interesting, artful, fun and just plain cool, be frowned upon by most....

but look at us now, allthough not completely, and never like to be completely, the dark veil has been lifted slightly and the music and good times and technology is starting to shine through more and more than the latest breaking news about such and such a drug found only at these underground TECHNO RAVES - Tonight on fox!

still, we have, and will always have personal choice. Thats how our lives are shaped... through the good or bad choices we make. we learn every day from them... but theyre ours to make, and its our responsibility to make the right ones for each of ourselves.Not to be pandered down to us in metaphorical pill form from BIG voices as a marketing scheme to fit in with todays young and hip crowd to sell a f--kin CD.

So, if you can be pandered with MDMA refrences, then at least pander your own ass with a good sense of responsibility which will enable you to make the personal choices that are right for YOU... then i wont have to feel like a f--king moron on a stage because you paid money to listen to some warm humming sounds high as f--k. Besides, one day ill get older, and i dont want a bunch of f--king irresponsible f--kheads on my lawn.  RESPONSIBLE f--kbags, much preferred... but will still be asked to gtfo off my lawn for being a f--kbag all the same.
