Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon has long been out of the spotlight, despite having a clothing line of her own, that she developed for Macy’s at just 13. Sure you might think that having a clothing line doesn’t guarantee fame, but Lourdes or Lola as she is also known, has appeared in fashion campaigns as well.
But even then, she has not tasted success. This even more surprising because her mother is Madonna. However, now we know that it’s because she wanted to stay out of the limelight.
But now she is ready to step into it. In a brand new Vanity Fair interview, the trained model and dancer has given readers a glimpse into her life and ambitions.
Madonna’s Daughter Talks About Her First Boyfriend And Life Goals
Lourdes Leon or Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon was born to parents Madonna and Carlos Leon, her personal trainer. She attended the prestigious Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in Manhattan.
She says that she wants to be an actress in a movie and that’s her first life goal. But along with this Leon has confirmed something else about her life that made our eyebrows shoot up to our forehead- Timothée Chalamet was her ‘first boyfriend.’ She says that she met and dated him while at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School.
Talking about Chalamet, in the frank Vanity Fair interview she said:
“I respect him a lot, we were a little item. My first boyfriend.”
In fact, she wants to follow in his footsteps and become an actor herself. Lourdes says that she wants to portray Mother Theresa in a movie.
Lourdes Leon Talks About Her Mom- Madonna
Let’s be honest, what most of us want to know is- what is the pop queen like a mom? To that Lourdes says:
“My mom really went hard for that once she saw there was potential.”
She is referring to the ballet classes that she started going to when she was just 3 years old. So it seems like Madonna has a sort of Stage Mom persona for sure. The model also reveals that the stage persona of her mom is completely different from her real-life one.
Explaining, Lourdes says that sexual or racy gifts often left her mom feeling unimpressed. After all, many people thought that Madonna would love controversial things due to the edgy persona she displays on stage and so they gave her those gifts. In the quote she says:
“She’s expecting something nice that she’ll actually use and she gets a leather horse condom and a bong shaped like a c**k and balls (courtesy of photographer Steven Klein.) She doesn’t even smoke weed.”
The Budding Starlet Looks Smoking in The Photoshoot
The model looks stunning in the photoshoot done by photographer Adrienne Raquel. In one simmering shot, Leon wears just tights, briefs, and shoes courtesy of Saint Laurent, as she fans our flames beside the swimming pool.
Here’s a little known fact- Lourdes started her modelling career with Stella McCartney about 4 years ago. Also, just the last year she choreographed as well as co-directed the Adidas and McCartney collaboration.
Also, right now Leon isn’t sitting at home waiting for opportunities to come up to her. Currently, she is representing Marc Jacobs while searching for the role that will help her get her foot in Hollywood.
Does Leon want to be a singer like her mom? For now, it seems like she has no such inclination and just wants to act. With her sizzling and busty body, she can definitely make the cut to Hollywood. But right now we can only wish the babe good luck on her journey to stardom.
