Hear Lourdes speak
Madonna and Lourdes walked the pink carpet together at the Material Girl launch at Macy’s last night in New York and actually stopped for joint interviews on the press line and while Lourdes has certainly been heard before, this is really the first time she’s been broadcast so widely. It’s pretty amazing.
She really is 14. Madonna has a 14 year old daughter who behaves as though she’s 14, with much more money and privilege than other 14 year old girls, sure, but the way she’s fidgeting with her braces is universal, no matter who she calls mom.
And together they are adorable. Lourdes of course knows everything, so much everything that she cuts her mother off when she’s talking, and when she talks there are, like, so many “likes”, so much so that you realise, she’s pretty untrained, as opposed to say, someone like Chloe Grace Moretz, or most Hollywood child players, who cannot come up with an unrehearsed answer and fall apart when faced with an unexpected question.
I love Madonna the mother. And it’s Madonna the mother who seems younger to me, younger than Madonna the single lady dating the child model. There’s something very fresh and very youthful about her interaction with her children, especially with her firstborn. If only she could see this for herself.
