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?

Nice summer vacation

I think it’s a great summer job. I am a bit jealous :-)

I like that she got a summer job even if it was for her mom. Every parent should make their kids have jobs to teach them the meaning of a buck and responsibility. Nice to see even Madonna’s kid works!

Lourdes looks soooo much like Shakira, specially before Shakira decided to dye her black hair into blond hair for the American crossover

Good for lourdes it doesn’t matter if she works for mom or any other place this will teach her reponsibilities and good work ethics.

I wonder how much mommy paid her for that summer “job”.

Jealous? Actually no. Good for her though.

Katy Perry can sing on her solo album along with Willow Smith…

I think it’s great she worked for her mom in the summer. Not sure why she should work anywhere else. She’s only 16 and should still be with her mom. Is she supposed to live apart and work a summer job somewhere like New York? She’s a minor! Now it would be different if she was with her dad for the summer. As far as I know he’s very much a part of her life, too.
