How Did Lourdes Leon Spend Her Summer Vacation?

Most of us spent our summers as camp counselors, store cashiers and babysitters. But when you’re Madonna‘s daughter, Lourdes Leon, your summer job is decidedly more glam: working in the wardrobe department of your mom’s massive summer MDNA tour.

“All of my friends were getting summer jobs and I wanted one too,” Leon explains in her latest blog post for her clothing line, Material Girl. “Mine was a little unconventional but still a great experience and a lot of fun.”

Leon hints that she spent a lot of time folding underwear, and posts some cool backstage pics from mom’s tour (above). But her biggest task? “Being in the wardrobe department meant me and a few other girls dressed the dancers during the show when they had quick changes,” she explains. “Thirty seconds to totally dress a sweaty dancer can be insane and provoke mucho anxiety. Doing this night after night was pretty cray, but I loved every minute of it.”

The 16-year-old got to travel the world (she lists Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Turkey as her favorite stops) and loved working on the tour, “traveling around like a family, setting up for an amazing show and all having the same purpose,” she writes. “To be able to be a part of such an inspiring production was one of my best summers so far.” Click over to Leon’s blog to see and hear more about her experience. Tell us: Are you jealous of Lourdes’s glam summer job?

You couldn’t pay me enough to fold Madonna’s underwear. Hope she wore gloves.

I can just see Madonna proofreading this blog over and over before it goes live. Run Lola Run after you turn 18.

If she really wanted to teach her daughter solid life skills, she would be on time for her performances, and at the very least apologize when she’s not. Arrogance is a terrible quality, and certainly one you can pass on to your children or steer them towards a life of humility. Unfortunate parenting.

Boo-Hoo! She got a summer job. THat’s not aummer job hun. That’s you still iving off of your mommy. Why don’t you get a real teenage job and babysit or since you are so into fashion go down to the local shelter and give your clothes away to run-a-way and abused teens. Lourdes you have all that power and not one brain cell on how to use it for the better.

Can’t stand her mom, but Lourdes is one seriously beautiful girl. And lots of kids her age get summer jobs working for their parents, I don’t see how that can possibly be a bad thing.

Not a summer job? She works with her Mom on a clothing line, and is doing this? And you accuse her of not being smart? Who pissed in your cereal this morning?

Tigs on

Lourdes sure is a beautiful girl.
