Lourdes Is Planning To Leave Madonna’s Fame-Saturated Nest Early

By  | 

Lourdes LeonSad times for mother of four Madonna. Her eldest, Lourdes, is reportedly planning to fly the coup at just 16 years old. And for a very admirable reason.

The Sun reports that Lourdes has had it up to here with being in the limelight. She is looking to take a whole stab at adolescent convention and study performing arts at Bard College. And she’ll be doing it all on her dime. The teenager seems to have pocketed her personal profits from that whole Material Girl clothing line and will be putting those bucks towards a college education. Better that than a personal Lamborghini collection, I say.

But a very understandable distaste for fame isn’t all that has the teenager counting her pennies:

“Lourdes can’t wait to leave home and get to university. She’s already planned it all. Madonna is a strict parent, but Lourdes has been rebelling. She’s also fed up being in the spotlight. That’s why she didn’t go on stage during Madonna’s tour.”

Getting some distance from your internationally recognized mother in the pursuit of an education is two-pronged effort towards normalcy that I can definitely get behind. Pack that old college trunk, try not to smoke in plain site of cell phone cameras, and never look back.
