Another potential celebrity Twitter war has been diverted.
Madonna and Deadmau5 are playing nice again after some tense, curse-filled moments on Monday.
The source of his accusations?
A perceived drug reference Madonna made during a surprise appearance at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival on Saturday night.
When the pop icon hit the stage to introduce Swedish DJ Avicii she yelled to the audience, "How many people in this crowd have seen Molly?"
“Molly” is a slang word for MDNA - otherwise known as “ecstasy” - though it just as easily could have been seen as a nod to her new album, “MDNA.”
Still, Deadmau5 unleashed on the superstar singer in an 800-word post on Tumblr, calling her a "f*****g IDIOT" and asking,"That's your big message to ultra attendies? hipsterspeak for looking for drugs? F–k off."
Yesterday he followed up, tweeting, “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."
It didn’t take long for the Material Mom to respond.
She tweeted an old-school picture of herself sporting Minnie Mouse ears with a thought bubble in response.
It 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 ..."
Zimmerman responded, “Fair enough, I was just voicing my concerns as I usually do. +1 respect for clearing it up personally."
Later he added, "Regardless, just be a little more aware of what you *should* represent at EDM events, and ill watch my mouth."
The artists went back and forth with a few more Twitter exchanges before Madonna finally concluded, “Communication is always best. You should have called me first, we could have cleared it up 'privately.' See you on the road."
Two celebrities coming to an amicable and reasoned agreement? We'll take it.
