Celebrity News: Madonna was onstage in Miami on the weekend
Florida Vacation Guide to Celebrity Gossip: Madonna under fire
More than 300,000 fans of electronic dance music descended upon Florida from March 20-25 for Miami Music Week.
This weeklong celebration is held every March. It was once known as the Winter Music Conference.
Ultra Music Festival
The signature event of Miami Music Week is the Ultra Music Festival, a three-day outdoor celebration of electronic music. The most acclaimed DJs in the world are usually in attendance.
The lineup this year included David Guetta, dub step maestro Skrillex, trance DJ Tiesto and even godfather of the turntable, Fatboy Slim himself.
200,000 people (from 72 countries) attended this year. As a result, it’s become the second-highest-attended music festival in North America.
Madonna under fire for allegedly glamorizing drug use
Wearing a very skimpy outfit that showed off her tush, Madonna made an appearance at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival where she joined DJ Avicii for his set.
Before working the crowd into a frenzy as she introduced Avicii, the 53-year old star said, “I’ve been here in spirit for many years, but it’s good to finally be standing on the stage, looking at all you people who have come here from all around the world. In my world, the words music and dance are not separated.”
Madonna then got herself into a little trouble by asking the crowd, “How many people in this crowd have seen Molly?”
Molly is slang for MDMA, the chemical name for ecstasy. Madonna’s new album is titled MDNA. Coincidence?
Canadian star Deadmau5 was not impressed by the pop icon’s casual reference to drugs. He wrote on his Facebook page: “Very classy there madonna. ‘HUR DUR HAS ANYONE SEEN MOLLY???’ such a great message for the young music lovers at ultra.”
