Madonna's daughter asks her to wear 'normal clothes'

04/17/2008 at 07:29 PM ET

MadonnalourdesMadonna, 49, loves to take advantage of her downtime by dressing in comfortable clothes like trackpants and sweatshirts, but her daughter, Lourdes, 11, always reminds her that these clothes embarrass her. 

Madonna has said that she knows she dresses in a way that makes Lourdes uncomfortable, saying that her daughter will ask if she could "use normal clothes", but Madonna insists that she won’t change her style to be more "traditional" per Lourdes’ request!

Lourdes’ father is Carlos Leon, 41.

It’s amazing how Lourdes looks like both of her parents!! She has her father’s narrow jawline and her mother’s shaped eyes and eyebrows! What a beautiful girl she is–half Cuban, one-quarter French-Canadian and one-quarter Italian. You can see how close they really are too, it’s lovely to see Madonna so maternal.

Lourdes must have quite the life if she thinks Madonna’s designer sweats & athletic gear is “abnormal” for a mother to wear (although I guess most 11 or 12 yr olds are ’embarassed’ about their parents for some reason or another), although I guess having a 50 yr old mother who’s that “buff” might be a bit unusual.

Anyway Lourdes should be glad that she wasn’t her 11 or 12 yr old daughter back in the early 1990s, when Madonna would parade around at parties, awards shows, and performances in that John Galliano cone-shaped bra she made so famous…among her other leather creations from that era. (Now THAT is embarassing, imho, more so than designer yoga pants & tees.)

I remember when I was about Lourdes age I told my mom I would NEVER were clothes like she did. I was quite adamant about it. Well fast forward 8 or 9 years and I was borrowing stuff from her closet all the time! It is definitely a phase, and she will pass it. Personally I like Madonna’s style now!😉
