Madonna’s One-Day-Only Appearance On Twitter Attracts Critics

Madonna probably won’t be returning to Twitter after the day she had yesterday. Her appearance was overshadowed by two folks – each with an axe to grind.

It was a clever PR ploy, having Madonna join Twitter and interact with fans for only one day – and it went really well overall. The Material Girl was engaging and interesting, responding to numerous tweets from fans and other celebrities. And even made plans to share the stage with Justin Bieber at some point.

But then Joel Zimmerman, best known as Deadmau5, “one of the most innovative and popular electronic live acts globally,” took Madonna to task for making what appeared to be a drug reference at Miami’s Ultra Musical Festival on Saturday when she asked the audience, “How many people in this crowd have seen molly?” Molly is the pure form of ecstasy.

Madonna tweeted back a (kind of weird photo – below) and explanation that she “was referring to the song called “Have You Seen Molly” written by my friend Cedric Gervais”


But check out the teaser video for the “Have You Seen Molly” and tell me if you think that “molly” is referring to ecstasy here, or if (as Cedric says) it’s referring to a girl . . . who “makes me want to dance.” Hmm.



If that wasn’t enough, Piers Morgan then took a swing saying, “Welcome to Twitter, you’re still banned from my show” and then banned her manager as well when he fired back with a picture of Madonna’s invitation to appear on his show! What a ride.



The day ended on a high note and she seemed to be in good spirits as she signed off, but I’m guessing we won’t see her on Twitter again soon. Not until the next song release at least.
