While you’re waiting for our review on pop queen Madonna’s latest record MDNA, we thought we’d share the latest on an interesting 24 hour feud between Ms. Ciccone and dance music’s Deadmau5.
It all started when Madonna made a surprise appearance at the Ultra Music Festival to introduce Swedish house artist Avicii‘s headlining set. Starting out, she gave a nice speech about electronic music always being a part of her career and that she can say “A DJ quite literally saved my life.”
Then, she said she had a few questions for the audience. The first inquiry?
“How many of you have seen Molly?”
(If you don’t know what Molly is, take a look at this informative article).
Afterward, fans who attended the show and watched from YouTube’s exclusive stream seemed to be on two sides of the spectrum: either rather enthused about the appearance, or a bit let down that she chose to dance about the stage to an Avicii remix to her second single “Girl Gone Wild” instead of giving a bit of a performance. Regardless, the same played out, but playful joke caroused the internet on every news site available with journalists, fans, and bloggers stating “Madonna’s looking for Molly and Britney Spears is still seeking Amy.” (Admit it, you giggled).
Cue Deadmau5, who has had his fingers busy lately updating his Tumblr with little mouse squeaks of entries (one of which we retweeted because we agreed with). An article entitled Responsibility basically slammed Madonna for using drugs to market her way into the Electronic Dance Music community and sell more copies of her already drug related record title MDNA.
Joel Zimmerman stated: “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 fuckin CD.”
In the same night, Madonna took to Twitter for one night to answer questions that the fans would Tweet to her throughout a two hour rapid fire, witty, insightful, and wonderful un-filtered Q&A session.
The following pictures demonstrate the exchanges made:
And then all was calm, while some interesting tweets from mau5 to Kaskade remained and Kaskade’s tweets backing Zimmerman still stands. (Though the tweet is most likely because of Joel’s own difficulties with the Ustream service).
