Madonna makes nice with Deadmau5

Another potential celebrity Twitter war has been diverted.

Madonna and Deadmau5 are playing nice again after some tense, curse-filled moments on Monday.

MTV reports that the divine Ms. M dusted off her Twitter account yesterday to respond to the Canadian house producer after he shouted her out online.

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.

    CNN, the drug is MDMA, not MDNA

    And the dead mouse is a complete fool for not knowing 80% of the people there are rolling their faces off on Molly

    Madge new exactly what she was implying. Not sure what to say about Deadmau5. I've heard he's a complete swine, actually a good guy, and everything in between. Like some of his songs though.

    Ecstasy is MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine). Not "N". Old lady and talentless DJ are both morons, as well as CNN.

      apparently you dont know the story its entirety. deadmau5 was not blasting madonna in reference to her shirt. He was blasting her in reference to shouting, "Has anyone seen Molly?" at Ultra Music Fesitval this past weekend. "Molly" is another name for ecstasy. She also did this at one of the largest electronic music festivals in the world, with 30,000+ viewers on youtubes live stream. What a great role model Madonna is... get your facts straight before you denonce a great musician such as Joel Zimmerman.

    Oh good. It was just a shout out to a song about MDNA. That sooooo much different.

    BTW, the Cedric Gervais song in question goes:
    "Have You Seen Molly?
    She makes me want to dance!"

    mdMa is ecstasy.

    MDNA is a likely play on MDMA and her own name, but they are not the same.

    CNN's human interest pieces are garbage.
