I personally find her homely looking. I hope she lives up to her mother's expectations. She doesn't appear special talent-wise.
I ate six bananas, is that too many?
I hope she doesn't inflict her inevitably crappy singing voice on us. She could try acting though, it'd be hilarious if she succeeded where her mother failed miserably.
I forget what her name is, someone link a current pic.
Sean Penn is a pretty good actor so maybe she inherited through him.
The kid is not very pretty. R2 her name is Lourdes. Here is a link of many pictures of Lourdes.
Umm... If everyone had to be "special-talent wise" as you suggest OP some of us wouldn't have careers. And being homely is hardly a barrier to success, dear. What a girl needs is ambition, ruthlessness, a fake English accent, an ability to take oneself very, very seriously and absolutely no sense of humour. Talent has nothing to do with it! NOTHING!
[quote]Sean Penn is a pretty good actor so maybe she inherited through him.
DNA by previous association? Penn's a good actor, but not that good.
She looks a lot like her mother when Madonna was that age. And her father is Carlos Leon, a personal trainer, not Sean Penn.
I think Lourdes Leon's interests lie more in the realm of fashion design not music. She seems to have definite interests of her own.
Please. Nepotism will rear it's ugly head. The girl will have a career cuz mom madge will open the door.Remember that Madge inspired fashion line Lourdes supposedly did all on her own? Yeah, right.
The lack of looks and talent didn't stop her mother.
I think she's attractive in a Joan Jett sort of way.
R10: :) LOL
Can you imagine having that egomaniacal harridan for a mother?? Yikes
You know, Madonna's so rich her kids will never have to work a day in their lives, and they don't really even need to go to school. I mean why? So the fact that she encourages Lourdes to do something is all good, IMO.
Whatever else is said about her, Madonna was very serious about being a mother. Strict too. If I were Madonna or Lourdes would I really give a fuck about accusations of "nepotism?" Hah!
I just want to say that I think it is despicable to demean and hack away at the children of celebrities. It's a form of bullying I despise. People cannot help how they look. Billy Joel's daughter attempted suicide because of this very thing.
Lourdes will bow before me.
She's not unattractive, but not beautiful enough to be a star on that basis. Her looks make me appreciate her mother's looks more, because Lourdes looks best when she most resembles her mother. She does resemble her mother, just not enough.
R16 Either does her mother.
r17, I'm a huge Madonna-hater, she can't act and has a shitty voice. But in her prime, I do think she was a beautiful woman. Without any appreciable talent, she needed to at least be sexy to achieve what she did.
I think the daughter is cute. I hate to see celebrity children bullied too. Lourdes can't help it if her mother was a giant horse cunt.
As far as Madge goes, she was no great beauty but she was very cute in her youth. Very pretty eyes. She'd look a lot better now if she put on some weight and didn't look like a piece of gristle
Lourdes actually seems quite sweet. She's ok looking, not great, she was not attractive as a child.
r14, many people would demean and hack away at the children of the sucessful, famous or not, who had their parents open doors for them.
Don't be so rough on the poor girl. She already had to start life by sliding through Momma Madge's vagina. That's punishment enough for any sin she'll ever commit.
The girl cannot speak proper English. She's already sung on her mother's tracks. She's awful. Mother like daughter. She can't act for shit. Madonna put her in her film. Lola has no talent.

She was delivered via cesarean, honey.

No she wasn't. Her second kid was, but her first kid was a regular birth, at least according to Vadge. I remember Vadge saying on Oprah that during labor she tried to do it without drugs, but eventually she gave in. So if it had been a c-section, she would've had no choice in the first place but to have drugs.
Some one on this thread mentioned Madonna being super wealthy ,and her kids don't have to worry. I read some months ago about one of Madonna's brothers who is homeless ,and who is living out on the street.He said his sister is worth 1 billion dollars ,and she didn't care about her homeless brother. 1 billion dollars sounds right to me because she is an extremely shrewd business woman.
I'm more curious about her son with Guy Ritchie. He was briefly in that documentary about her and something seemed VERY off about him.
How old is Lourdes? Shouldn't she be in college or starting college by now? Where did she go to high school?
Last I heard she was still in HS and that Vadge bought her an appointment near her school.
Must be nice.
Happy 17th Birthday to Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon
Lourdes looked like a Latina version of her mother when she was a little girl, but as a teen/young woman, she's looking more and more like her dad.
She doesn't speak well? Who says?
As for Madonna's parenting, when Madge was making pretend she was an English baroness she said the kids don't get to watch TV or go to the movies and ate her macrobiotic diet and spent hours in yoga. For playtime they were encouraged to do little plays at home with swords and things like that.
I expected her daughter to grow up a dour little cuntling who stays out of the limelight to pursue a real career, but it seems like she likes a little exposure.
Time will tell, but I am surprised Madonna's daughter has been free of any drama or scandals. Compare 17 year old Lourdes to 17 year old Frances Cobain.
From certain angles she reminds me of Cher.
Anyone else thinks she looks like a cross between Madonna and Gaga?
What ever you can say about Madonna. I give her credit for sending her daughter to a public school. Yes, it the school for the Arts, but atleast she was exposed to the city, and not a prep school like Dalton, that I attended
Sometimes I think Madonna still smokes cigs. The fact that Lourdes was caught smoking cigs made me even more suspicious.
Lourdes is definitely a better person than Frances Cobain. But, FC is now very settled with her Latino Kurt Cobain looking guy in LA & NYC I think. She's been with him for years & I doubt they'll break up in the near future.
Just looked at Frances Cobain's twitter account. Sheesh she is fucked up & narcissistic. Tons of selfies & faux anger pix. She & Miley seem alike only Miley seems nicer, actually.
[quote]You know, Madonna's so rich her kids will never have to work a day in their lives, and they don't really even need to go to school.
Um.. Vadge is so tight with a buck that Lourdes had better get an education and work.
Whatever else is said about her, Madonna was very serious about being a mother. Strict too.
For years, her children have only seen her by appointment for about 30 minutes at a time. Any longer than that and they get on Mama's nerves. Vadge's assistants tell the kids that Vadge is exercising or busy and won't see them. They're raised by nannies.

Uh-huh. R8, R14, I just want to say that the Datalounge may not be the best place for you, dear. \t
I think she's way prettier than her mother ever was. She also seems nicer so far.
She's going to inherit many millions but I wouldn't wish Madonna as a mother on anyone.
FC had a nose job. Lourdes had her eyebrows lasered, but looks natural... so far.
Who is FC??
FC = Frances Cobain
Looks like typical Bronx, Brooklyn trash
Holy shit! How is this girl in any way unattractive? Have you seen the Moore-Willis kids?! Lourdes is a goddess compared to them, and a pretty girl by any (normal) standard. I think some of the people taking issue with her looks have problems with race and see her as "too ethnic," which is hilarious/pathetic considering her mother's background. Remember that Madonna is a bottle blonde, and that this is what she used to look like:
