Madonna denies cringeworthy drug reference was cringeworthy drug reference

Yesterday, to try and flog her new album, Madonna found herself on Twitter, which gave her a chance to try and clear up her 'has anyone here seen Molly' drug reference at the Ultra Music Festival.

Madonna insists that her drug reference wasn't a drug reference at all:

I don’t support drug use and I never have. I was referring to the song ‘Have You Seen Molly’ written by my friend Cedric Gervais who I almost worked with on my last album
Of course you were, Madonna. Of course you were. Because it's the most usual thing in the world to stand on stage and yell out something a bit like the name of a song you're not about to sing by someone you haven't worked with. It's a well known thing.

Deadmau5 - who first called Madonna on it - seems happy with her explanation, though; and Cedric Gervais has taken advantage of suddenly popping onto the public stage to promote the ass out of himself ("share his interpretation of his own song"). TMZ:
Now, this "friend" -- a DJ named Cedric Gervais (left) -- is coming to Madonna's defense, insisting his song is NOT about drugs ... it's about a girl named Molly who, according to the lyrics, "makes me want to dance."
So, are we all clear, then? Madonna's drug reference was actually simply a mangled reference to a song; that drug song isn't about drugs at all.

Twenty years too late, American culture has finally caught up with "noooo, it's just a song about a man called Ebeneezer who is good" piss-poor fourth-form pretending that it's not about drugs.

Madonna, a 53 year-old woman, is doing the equivalent of humming while teacher is turned to the blackboard and then looking surprised when he turns round.

Still, Madonna doesn't support drug use and never has. Now, can we all forget suggestions she might be childishly poking drug references everywhere and get back to thinking about her album MDMA?
