A day after Deadmau5 took Madonna to task for seemingly making a drug reference during a surprise appearance at the Ultra Music Festival, the singer buried the hatchet with the EDM superstar during a surprise Twitter summit.
Deadmau5 went in hard on Madonna after she blew away partygoers over the weekend while introducing EDM icon Avicii, asking them, “How many people in this crowd have seen Molly?” That incensed Mau5, who slammed Madonna for seemingly making a thinly veiled reference to the illegal drug MDMA (ecstasy), which is also alluded to in the title of her new album, MDNA.
Though she isn’t known for having an active Twitter presence, Madonna signed on Monday to chat with her fans under the handle, @MadonnaMDNAday. Deadmau5 was among those who joined the conversation, and the 31-year-old party starter followed up his epic 800-word Tumblr rant by telling Madonna, “You’re a role model to 100’s of millions. You have a powerful voice, EDM could use your positive influence, not ‘molly’ talk.”
Madonna, 53, Tweeted a 1989 image of herself wearing Minnie Mouse ears with a new thought bubble that read, “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 last album …”

Deadmau5 seemingly accepted her apology, responding, “Fair enough, I was just voicing my concerns as I usually do. +1 respect for clearing it up personally … regardless, just be a little more aware of what you should represent at EDM events, and I’ll watch my mouth.”
That was good enough for Madonna, too, who replied, “Communication is always best. You should have called me first, we could have cleared it up ‘privately.’ ;) See you on the road.”
And that was that. Deadmau5 was pleased with the response, telling his nearly one million followers, “Well there you have it kids. I’ve said what I needed to say, which ill still stand by, and so did she. life goes on. No more talk of that.”
