Madonna supports daughter on stage

Madonna watched her daughter, Lourdes Leon, star in her school's version of 'Grease' last night on Friday night.

The 'Girl Gone Wild' hitmaker attempted to keep a low profile as she attended LaGuardia High School in New York City with her other children, Rocco, David and Mercy to cheer on the 17-year-old fashion designer as she played Betty Rizzo in the iconic musical.

An eyewitness told that Lourdes won rave reviews for her performance: '[She was] really good. The show was completely sold out, and people were scalping tickets beforehand.'

The insider added: 'She is a great singer, dancer and actress and seemed completely comfortable on the stage. She also seemed like she was having a lot of fun with the part.'

Lourdes thanked her mother and father, Carlos Leon, in the event's program.

It states: 'Lola Leon (Betty Rizzo) is a senior Drama major at LaGuardia and this is her second annual musical. Last year she performed the role of Elaine in 'Sweet Charity' at LaGuardia and is very grateful to be able to participate in such an elaborate production for the second year in a row. Previous work in musical theatre before that include ensemble roles in 'Hair' and 'Cabaret' at ArtsEd in London. She would like to thank her parents with all of her heart for giving her guidance and love and supporting her passions wholeheartedly.'

@Joseph Rene: are we still using the word "reductive"? (Some of us never did.) Cliche always ruins an "argument".

Carlota your remark is with out merit!
Madonna has worked hard since her high school days to present times... I worked with her on a movie ,met her twice and always found her disciplined and hard working ..she was a very hands on** mom with LOLA on set! her kids seem very grounded ,genuine. she has shown them good ethics as a parent ...not her persona (JOB)


@ Carolota: I would say that it is not unfair. It's more like chance. It's not Madonna's fault, it's not Lola fault for who they are.

Parents do what they can for their children and if Madge can do more, why not?

Those children don't seem like they get away with much anyway. I credit her parenting.


Good For Lola. What is unfair Carlota!! She is going to school and was given a good part (not the main part which is Sandy). Better to see her succeeding than be a celebrity child with no goals and aspirations. I see good things for her future.


How unfair somoene to be given chances and publicity in life just because they are the child of a famous and rich person.


Well done Lola. When Lola sang with Madonna on 'Superstar' I was amazed at how similar their voices were! She's a Beautiful looking young woman & appears very grounded too.
