Now’s that she’s back in the spotlight with a new album, “MDNA,” Madonna is taking social media by storm! Hot off the heels of her Facebook livestreamed interview with Jimmy Fallon, and sharing what she would do as the President of the U.S., the star did a Twitter chat with her fans on Monday night. From LGBT rights to her views on drug use, she tweeted out a ton of social goodness.
When asked what she thinks about Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation, Madge wrote that she applauds Gaga:
As for the use of drugs, Madonna tweeted to a fan that using drugs is the one thing she would never do:
@paoliena use drugs.— Madonna MDNA Day (@MadonnaMDNAday) March 27, 2012
She and electronic music DJ Deadmau5 even called a Twitter truce about the issue. On Monday, controversy erupted after Deadmau5 interpreted a recent comment Madonna made about “molly” to glamourize drug use. He tweeted:
@MadonnaMDNAday You're a role model to 100's of millions. You have a powerful voice,EDM could use your positive influence, not "molly" talk.— deadmau5 (@deadmau5) March 27, 2012
In addition to tweeting, the DJ used his Facebook and Tumblr accounts to criticize Madonna’s behavior. Madonna responded with a simple tweet — “lovemau5″ — and the photo below, explaining that she doesn’t support drug use and never has:
To which Deadmau5 responded: “Fair enough, I was just voicing my concerns as I usually do. +1 respect for clearing it up personally.”
“Communication is always best,” reads a response from Madonna’s Twitter account. “You should have called me first, we could have cleared it up ‘privately.’ ; ) See you on the road.” Communicating about issues and taking action are definitely the way to go, and Madonna is using her music and social media to do just that.
