Hey Madonna, are you overscheduling your 13-year-old daughter and stressing her out?
Every mom thinks their child is talented, but it seems like Madonna is going way overboard by sending her daughter Lourdes Leon, to tons of after-school classes: The 13-year-old (who just launched the Material Girl fashion line with her mom) is taking dance, piano, acting lessons and well as Spanish and Italian classes. We’re exhausted just thinking about it!
According to a report in London’s Daily Mail, Lourdes was cycling two miles across Central Park each morning to attend New York’s Lycee Francais (where she learned to speak fluent French), and her evenings were spent studying. And her weekends haven’t been a breeze either — she has a two-hour dance class at 6 a.m. on Saturdays!
Later this year, Lourdes is reportedly set to attend the LaGuardia High School of Music & Art — the Fame school whose alumni include Jennifer Aniston and Al Pacino. Talk about pressure! But, according to one family friend, the teen known as Lola can handle it. “‘I have never met anyone in my life with the work ethic of Madonna,” the pal told the Daily Mail. “But if there’s one person who comes close then it’s Lola. She’s a remarkable girl and much smarter than her mom.”
The insider says Madonna “wants Lourdes to feel the sky is the limit,” and is trying to “build her confidence to the point where anything is possible.”
If we had a crystal ball, we’re sure we’d see a day in the not too distant future when Lourdes is a bigger star than her mom. Do you agree?
