Madonna: Lola Wants To Be An Actress When She Grows Up


madonna-lourdes-leon1Madonna may be giving Lourdes as many dance gigs as she can throw her daughter’s way, but being the next Queen of Pop is not Lola’s greatest ambition. Surprisingly, Madonna says that her daughter isn’t planning to become a pop star, but she is interested in a career in entertainment.

Don’t get me wrong, Lola will probably be taking a little bit of a free ride on her mother’s coattails, but that’s pretty much an inevitability for the Princess of Pop.

From Madonna’s interview in PopEater:

On Lola’s cameo in the Celebration video:
She hangs out with the dancers a lot. She’s a dancer, herself. The video is about the celebration of music and dance. There’s an improvisational moment when we’re all in a circle and each dancer does their specialty or a special move that they do well. She wanted to do hers, so she did.

On following in her footsteps:
No. I don’t she wants to be a singer. I think she wants to be an actress.

On accepting Lola’s path:
I’m fine with it, as long as she finishes school, and takes it seriously. She also plays piano, and she’s really into clothes
and fashion and style. She can go in any direction. She’s got a lot of diverse interests right now. We’ll see. I’m not pushing anything. We’ll see what she wants to do.

She ought to be able to get some jobs with a couple of Madonna videos in her portfolio.
