Lourdes Leon may be the daughter of pop icon Madonna but when it comes to promoting her mom’s new fashion line, Material Girl, she sounds like a typical teen.
“Helluuur thurrrr, I’m Lola and this is my first blog entry so it’s kind of like ummmm…” she writes, using her nickname to identify herself, on the Material Girl collection Web site.
As well as sharing her taste in clothes and music, Lola drops some hints about Madonna’s strict parenting skills.
“I’m just going to use this blog entry to tell y’all a little bit about myself. I’m 13 and I’ll be 14 in October, so I can’t wait for that because I am FINALLY allowed to dye my hair… THANK YOU MOTHER!!
“My favvvv color is black (just because it goes with everything) and my least favorite color is brown (because it resembles the color of something QUITE gross).”
It’s obvious where Lourdes gets her sense of style: “I am totally obsessivo about 80’s shorts… You know the kind that makes your butt look kinda big, with a grunge-looking shirt tucked in. It’s kinda nerdy but I love it.
“And the 80’s are another huge obsession of mine, which is totally amazingly awesome because Material Girl…HELLO! It’s like 80’s themed, which pretty much rocks, so yeah. I’m still in love with brogues or as some people call them “oxford shoes”. I haven’t found a good sandal so I’m on like a search right now.”
Lourdes even shares some of her address book secrets with her readers, “I’m in London right now and the best stores ever here,I love the vintage stores down in Whitechapel, also a lot of hot guys hang there just in case y’all care.”
But when it comes to music she’s got no love for her mom. “Music wise My Chemical Romance is THE BEST BAND EVER for realzzzz. They are so awesome it hurts. If you don’t know who they are just… go away OR download their songs.”
And what style does Lola really, really hate? “OK but no joke gladiator sandals are OUT. They came out in summer 2008 and I was like, ok those are really cute. Then 2009 comes around and people are still wearing them so I’m like, ok whatever it’s just a phase. BUT NOOOOO.
“Because good old 2010 is now coming along and people are STILL wearing them, and then I was just like OK NO! It’s been three years people COME ON!!!!!!!!! I’m just like what????”
She signs off, “I look forward to writing my second [blog post]. Stay tuned if you don’t already think I’m annoying.”
