Watch Madonna Talk Drugs and EDM at Ultra 2012: "I Can Honestly Say a DJ Saved My Life"

See Crossfade's original post about Madonna at Ultra Music Festival 2012 and read Deadmau5's response to Madonna's Ultra appearance: "Fuck off, you fucking idiot."

After spending the entire afternoon holed up at the Delano Miami Beach for a private "Gang Bang" (i.e. the release of Madonna's MDNA Nightlife Edition Remix Album), hardcore fans of pop music's top 54-year-old "Girl Gone Wild" rushed home to their laptops.

They frantically tuned into the Ultra Music Festival 2012 live YouTube stream at precisely 10:45 p.m. EST. Because Mistress Madonna said so. Via Facebook.

The payoff: An (almost) seven-minute UMF cameo, some drug talk, and a new electro-house remix of her latest single.

Taking the Main Stage to introduce headlining Swedish DJ, producer, and twink Avicii (AKA Tim Bergling), the pop dominatrix chit-chatted with the crowd about EDM, saying: "Electronic music has been a part of my life since the beginning of my career. I can honestly say that a DJ saved my life."

But Mistress Madonna's total devotion to dance didn't quite convince the raver kids of her coolness. So she switched to drug talk and expletives.

"I have a few questions for you," she shouted into the mike. "How many people in this crowd have seen Molly? Are you ready to dance? Are you ready for the next DJ, motherfuckers?"

And the beat freaks screamed like ecstatic banshees.

I like MDNA and all, but Confessions on a Dance Floor is still hands down the best album Madonna's ever made. Madonna is idolatry!


Amazing write-up! This could aid plenty of people find out more about this particular issue. Are you keen to integrate video clips coupled with these? It would absolutely help out. Your conclusion was spot on and thanks to you; I probably won’t have to describe everything to my pals. I can simply direct them here!


Sheis a moron. Take drugs if you want people. they alwys will. But when someone of her standing in society and the music scene (Even if she is a nobody in the edm scene) glorifies it, and tries to mke it sound cool like she's a part of it (whether she is or not),there's something wrong. Thats a huge step backwards for the industry.
