Madonna cheers on son David Banda as he models a dress: 'Confidence is everything'

Madonna appears to be raising a budding fashion icon.

Over the weekend the "Vogue" singer posted footage of 15-year-old son David Banda dressed in a long, flowing white silk dress paired with white sneakers and oversized black sunglasses. The teen looks runway-ready as he walks through his home while Snap!'s famed 1990 song "The Power" plays. At one point, David praises the look, remarking, "It's so freeing."

"Confidence is Everything," the international superstar, 62, captioned the post, which fetched rave reviews from the likes of Kelly Ripa and Debi Mazar, who quipped, "OMG I love him. Look out Naomi."

The dress appears to be created by designer and artist Mae Couture, whom Madonna tagged in the photo. Mae also posted the video to her account, along with the caption "FLY BANDA." The dress resembles other items for sale on the designer's website, including hand-painted silk unisex boxer shorts.

In the past, Madonna has spoken about the special bond she shares with son David. In a 2018 interview with Vogue Italia, the mother of six shared that she thinks David is more like herself than any of her other children, The Sunday Times reported.

"What he has more than anything is focus and determination. I'm pretty sure he got that from me. He's the one I have the most in common with. I feel like he gets me; he has more of my DNA than any of my children so far," said Madonna.

Madonna is also mother to lookalike daughter Lourdes Leon, 24, whom she shares with ex Carlos Leon. She also has son Rocco Ritchie, 20, with ex-husband Guy Ritchie. Rounding out Madonna's brood is 15-year-old daughter Mercy James, and 8-year-old twins Stella and Estere. David Banda, Mercy James and the twins were all adopted from Malawi.

"I feel like he gets me; he has more of my DNA than any of my children so far," said Madonna.

What a cunty thing to say, it's interesting because she fooled people into thinking she was a good mother, but this statement says otherwise.

Also, her adopted son has more of her "DNA"? did she spit in his mouth or something?

Madonna shouting out “You better WORK!” at him wasn’t encouragement, it was a threat for him to earn his own money and get the fuck off her payroll.

Is he still playing soccer? I thought she moved overseas for him?

David Banda is late to the party.

A number of celebrity kids did this, like ... a million years ago.

Starting with Jaden Smith.

The stupid bitch actually showed off a necklace that was two halves of her heart: her bio kids. People in the comment section had to remind her that age had 4 other kids. She just buys love and attention. It’s quite sad.

He's as attention thirsty and pathetic as she is.

OMG her yak. how did a straight guy even find it to fuck it? you'd need a chainsaw and a shovel to plow out all of that nasty cunt forest!

David once did a routine to Janet’s Rhythm Nation — that Madonna herself introduced! Even this Hag’s adopted son knows who the true legend is.

As much as everyone shits on Rocco and Lola they are and were not stunt queens like David Banda. For who they are, they really do pretty under the radar compared to almost all celeb spawn their age.

Precisely why Madonna relates more to David than to Rocco and Lola. They sound totally boring.

Madonna was many things, but never boring. She always loved being the center of attention.

I guess David does, too.

Being desperate for attention is pretty normal for teenagers that’s why they’re so annoying. I’m sure he’ll calm down as an adult.

Her kids are a million times less attention seeking than 99.9% of other celeb kids. And, ummm, he has a huge one.

With her bio kids, based on Madonna's own words, Rocco and Lola lived a very restrictive life. There was no TV, Lola would have to go to school in the same outfit for days if she didn't pick up her clothing as a toddler (this seems very "Mommy Dearest"), they got iPhones well after their peers (16?), no sugar, very strict schedules, Kabbalah seemed a much bigger part of their lives. There used to be lots of photos of Rocco as a kid in the all white Kabbalah track suits they wore wore shabbat and holidays.

It seems like Madonna loosened up with the adopted kids and even with herself. Madonna of yesteryear would not ever try to present herself as intoxicated, smoking weed, drinking, or taking drugs like she does today. The one kid who never seems to get much attention, but who seems like pure light is Mercy James. There is something about her that always makes me smile. She has the biggest smile and just seems to be the most easy going one out of the group. She is the chubby one, but I love seeing her. She was always like that from a little one. Obviously, we don't know how the post Guy twins will turn out.

The one thing the adopted kids don't have that Lourdes and Rocco do is strong father figures. You can tell that Lourdes and Rocco's respective dads really love them and vice versa. Guy seems to beam at Rocco and so does Carlos Leon. The one thing Madge did right at least with Lola was really encourage the father/daughter relationships. Though David is Guy's son, I just don't feel the relationship. People have said that Guy is a pretty traditional Brit at heart and was not thrilled with adopting African babies. Maybe David feels this and went all in on team Madge.

Watching David Banda in the video at R10, he seems to have the "drag queen walk" down pretty good.

So is he gay now?

Or is that just Madonna's heavy influence on him?
