MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES (MARCH 24, 2012) (YOUTUBE.COM/UMF TV) - Pop-star Madonna made a surprise appearance at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Florida on Saturday (March 24).

"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 - I see flags from everywhere. Are you having a good time? In my world the words 'music' and 'dance' are not separated, okay? Electronic music has been a part of my life since the beginning of my career and I can honestly say that a DJ saved my life," Madonna said to the cheering crowd before introducing DJ AVICII.

The surprise of her appearance has been overshadowed by a drug reference she made while addressing the crowd.

"I have a few questions for you - how many people in this crowd have seen Molly?"

Molly is known as slang for MDMA, the active chemical in ecstasy, which is sometimes linked to electronic music.

After hearing her comments, popular electronic music DJ Deadmau5 took to Twitter and Facebook to criticize her comments saying: "Very classy there, Madonna.

"HUR DUR HAS ANYONE SEEN MOLLY???" such a great message for the young music lovers at Ultra."

Madonna, who releases her new CD, MDNA, on March 26, has yet to respond to the remarks.
