Madonna: “I Have No Authority” Over Lourdes

Madonna posed on the red carpet at Leicester Square in London on Wednesday (January 11) to promote her film W.E. She wore a Jean Paul Gaultier dress, Dolce & Gabbana cape and accessorized with red gloves.

She also stopped by The Graham Norton Show to talk about the movie and her 15-year-old daughter Lourdes.

In the taped interview set to air on Friday in the U.K., Madonna said, “She is always sneaking into my dressing room and borrowing things when I am still sleeping. She doesn’t fear me at all…I have no authority!”

She also shared that they squabble about the sexy clothes her teen wants to wear.

If I say to my daughter, ‘That outfit is a little bit too risqué or revealing’ and she looks at me and says, ‘That’s rich coming from you. Sometimes, you have just have to say, ‘Because I said so!'”

She added, “My kids don’t give an ‘eff who I am!”

Asked if she could see herself getting married a third time, the 53-year-old singer answered, “I could actually. Yes.”

      Get off. Madonna was a straight-A student when she was a teen, it doesn’t mean anything one way or the other. Madonna made her career choices as an adult, she has a right to parent her daughter however she wants. Lourdes is a typical teen and Madonna was being playful. What you’re suggesting is foul.

      Hypocrite? How stupid. Lourdes is a MINOR. Madonna is an adult, as such she can choose how to dress. While Lourdes is a minor, Madonna has every right to set whatever boundaries she wants. She’s the parent.

      And no, I will not “high five” a teenager for being a snotty teenager. Everyone was one at a given point. Some, like those making suggestive comments about a teenaged girl, never outgrow that.

    It sounds terrible to say, but my cousins had a similar reaction to my aunt right about that age too. Whenever my aunt (who smoked, drank & did hardcore drugs heavily for 30+ years) would try to restrict or discipline them, they’d always say, “You’ve gotta lot of room to talk, you’ve done this or that, or are doing this or that right now.” They almost always listened or obeyed their aunt (my mother, who’s the polar-opposite of her sister) long before they did their own parents.

    Not saying that behavior’s right, of course. I wanted to strangle my cousins at times for their bratty attitudes, but calling the parent hypocritical often happens if there’s a history there. However, Madonna’s much more stable & responsible than my aunt was/is, so I hope she keeps parenting Lourdes & the other children as well as she appears to be right now.

    Lourdes just like all teenagers is smarter and more intelligent than their mothers or fathers.

    How can a mother ask her child to not do drugs when she was a drug user?
    How can a mother ask her child to not be vulgar and promiscuous when she used to be like that?
    This kind of thinking goes on and on…

    The British singer Joss Stone who is a user of Cannabis and other drugs said that her parents have no problem with her hobbies because they were drugs users too.
    Probably all the teenagers who do drugs do it because they believe drugs are not harmful since their parents lived to tell the story.
