Of Mice & Madonna: The World According To Deadmau5

During Ultra last weekend, Madonna came out of who cares where and starts spewing out things that might click with young people. “Facebook! Molly! Charles in Charge!” The crowd cheered back but most thought it was Jenna Maroney doing a bit.

Deadmau5 of course took to Twitter to tell it like it is.

very classy there madonna. “HUR DUR HAS ANYONE SEEN MOLLY???” such a great message for the young music lovers at ultra. quite the f’n philanthropist. but hey, at least yer HIP AND TRENDY! fucking cant smack my head hard enough right now.

Then he wrote a lengthly Tumblr screed about responsibility, and the bickering continued until Madonna’s fake apology ended things.

Deadmau5’s real name is Joel Zimmerman. Apparently Zimmermans are renown for not knowing when to leave someone alone. Here here is sans that thing he wears.

Judging from how Zimmerman looks out of costume, Deadmau5 supports smoking cigarettes and staying indoors far away from the sun. What kind of message does this send to the youth? That Vitamin D is bad for you? And cancer kicks ass too?

There is an ancient proverb; if an EDM show happens, and molly isn’t around to fuel it, does it make a sound? No, of course not. There would be no one there to hear it. While I don’t defend Madonna for her beyond ignorant attempt to stay relevant, music and drugs will always be linked, especially with the party brand of music that is EDM.

Deadmau5, you can’t pretend you live in a huge mouse castle where no one does drugs and rats especially aren’t allowed.

Your career was built on its correlation with drug use. Instead of condemning it and biting the hands that feed you, maybe consider educating the youth on what goes into drugs, and the safest way to take them. Your fans would live a lot longer…you’d think that would be a benefit.

Yes Zimmerman we get it, you are “tellin it like it is”. Except that is not how it is and you know it, and you can’t hide behind cute mouse ears like you are a Disney executive.
