Rocco Ritchie Steals The Spotlight At Madonna’s Material Girl Launch

It’s hard to overshadow Madonna but that’s exactly what her son Rocco did at the NYC launch of her new clothing line Material Girl.

Before she was the biggest pop star in the world, Madonna was a dancer. Now it looks as if her 10-year-old son, Rocco Ritchie, has inherited his mom’s ability to bust a move. He stole the show from Madonna and his big sister Lourdes, 13, at the launch of their new Material Girl fashion line.

Looking just as stylish as his mom and sister, dressed in black acid-wash jeans and a trendy 3-D skull T-shirt Madonna’s little man moonwalked and breakdanced in front of the hundreds of cheering fans on Wednesday (Sept. 22) in the Big Apple.

And this isn’t the first time Rocco rocked out in front of a crowd — last year he took to the stage to show off his fancy footwork during a stop in Tel Aviv on Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet tour. Rocco’s dad, Sherlock Holmes’ director Guy Ritchie, 42, says his son really is an inspiration. “As I get more and more involved in the child’s world with Rocco, I’m getting interested in making a film for children,” he says. We’re betting Rocco will soon add acting to his list of talents!
