During a Twitter Q&A Madonna held on March 27, 2012, to promote her new album, deadmau5 tweeted her:

“You’re a role model to 100’s of millions. You have a powerful voice, EDM could use your positive influence, not ‘molly’ talk.”

Madonna responded by tweeting an old picture of herself wearing Mickey Mouse ears, captioned:

“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 album.”

Deadmau5 replied:

“Fair enough, i was just voicing my concerns as i usually do. +1 respect for clearing it up personally.”
