Lourdes Leon talks about her 'summer job' on MDNA tour

Madonna's teenage daughter Lourdes found herself folding piles of underwear after taking a summer job working on the singer's MDNA Tour.
The 16 year old spent her school vacation getting a taste of the working world after being hired as an assistant in the wardrobe department on her mother's latest global trek.
However, Lourdes is adamant she received no special treatment as the boss' daughter - she was handed the task of sorting sweaty stage costumes and folding undergarments.
In a post on her blog, she writes, 'This summer I was surprisingly productive. So, I thought I would tell you all about the joys of folding underwear. As you probably know this woman I like to call my mother went on tour for her MDNA album.'
'As a summer job I decided to work in the wardrobe department. All of my friends were getting summer jobs and I wanted one too. Mine was a little unconventional but still a great experience and a lot of fun.'
'Being in the wardrobe department meant me and a few other girls dressed the dancers during the show when they had quick changes. 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.'
And Lourdes, whose dad is personal trainer Carlos Leon, relished the chance to hit the road with her superstar mum.
She adds, 'It's really a great experience to be able to work on a large production, travelling around like a family, setting up for an amazing show and all having the same purpose. To be able to be a part of such an inspiring production was one of my best summers so far.'

Had Enough?

The only fan post I have a problem with is the person who calls themself 'T'. I have this to put to you:
You self-righteous, humourless, patronising douche. Stay away from any comment making please until you realise it's about commenting on *the article*, NOT other commenters. I don't know why I'm bothering to help you out, but this advice is for your own good - you currently come across as a bit shallow, rambling off-topic about other commenters point of view and failing to absorb their humourous observations. If you're too inaduaquate to arrive at your own humourous contributions, please don't contribute at all!


I think it's Wonderful that Madonna has her kids working with her! Lola's work sounds 'like punishment for me', clearly 'it's NOT punishment for Lola' because she is a budding designer and thus her work is terrific hands on experience! My comments about Madonna/ Motherhood have been misunderstood and twisted by some people, the less said about those individuals the better. Anyway, I believe that Madonna is a Great Mother- many people that have worked with Madonna over the years attest to this! Madonna, quite rightly, has said that motherhood is both her proudest & greatest achievement. Bravo Madonna! I think she is a great mother that has raised her children to value an education and to have a work ethic. It's great that Madonna has chosen to 'Keep It Together' in the family, because as the great lady herself has said, "Your Family Is Gold"!


Ngl isn't a budding designer and it didn't sound like punishment from Lola's perspective. She'll tale away a valuable internship from the experiences if nothing else. Whether the work ethic is inherited or implanted, the kids of Madonna are obviously not going to be hanging around hotel rooms all day.


@T- Once again, if you don't like my posts about Madonna, don't read them! You continue to write about me ALL the time, clearly this is a case of unrequited love!! Don't worry, I Forgive you & I will continue to express myself, not repress myself!

Will & ngl: the skits you're referring to were done by the talented Charlie Hides in the UK. I watch his skits all the time and they're funny as hell. Check out his channel on Youtube... charliehidestv.


There goes ngl again, trying to make it seem like Madonna forced her children to 'work' during the show. My God.

Children who are raised properly have chores to do. Madonna is an entertainer and is on tour. If the kids want to dance, do costumes, etc, then they have every right to and their mother has every right to force them to do chores, which would be working on the tour, if she wants.

Again, my God, ngl. Enough.


@Will- I've seen the skits/videos on You-Tube and they are some of the funniest skits I've ever seen!! I was looking for the real Madonna videos on You Tube, and I came across these by fortunate accident. The various skits & "Give Me Back Your Luvin", "Turn Off The Radio (Gaga's On The Stereo!)" music parodies are genuine LOL material. Worth checking out!!


I can't remember off hand but YouTube has these videos with "Madonna" & "Lourdes". It's a guy dressed up as Madonna and he does all these skits about Madonna. There's one where Lourdes is wearing a Lady Gaga shirt, anyway try to do a search. The one I'm thinking about has a Mommie Dearest reference. Oh and there's another one where "Cyndi Lauper" call Madonna about Madonna ripping off the "girls just wanna have some fun" line.


That very nice of her to help her mom and make some money not like a spoilt girl. Is obvious queen of Pop never get nothing for free she work hard to built her career and that is a big Example for their kids. Madonna rules ! She is the best !


Hey Lola! You and your mother rock hard! That is brilliant!


she would of been dancing if she wasnt caught smoking :P


I was wondering what happened to Lourdes! All this time I thought she was being punished for smoking, but her job does sound like punishment to me. On this tour we have Rocco the backup dancer, Lourdes the quick-change assistant and on laundry duties- Madonna knows how 'keep it together' in the family!!
