Madonna's Lourdes-inspired juniors' line for Macy's launches for back-to-school, and she's started promoting it pretty hard. Madonna, that is — not Lourdes, who has to go to high school, but apparently does more "designing" of these clothes than Madonna does. Madonna is sheltering her from the harsh realities of fame, you see. The AP asked if Madonna worried about the line forcing Lourdes into the spotlight. She replied:
That is why I am here talking about the line and she is not. Eventually I will let her. I feel like she needs to get into high school and focus on her studies, her lessons. She got into the high school of the performing arts. She has a lot of work to do. I don't want her to be distracted. She will eventually be able to talk about it. I am going to be happy when she does because she can speak much more clearly in and in a more informed way than I can about a line she is ultimately designing. I just stand in the background and go, "That's cool. That's not cool."
Madonna also elaborated on their process to Access Hollywood:
“The most fun is when [Lourdes] comes into the room and takes over and pulls out all of her favorite stuff and starts going through the racks and just takes over,” Madonna said. “I just sit on the conference table and watch and let her do the work — it’s nice, it’s refreshing.”
She added, "If Lola wasn't so completely involved in the line, designing, consulting, whatever you want to call it, I wouldn't do it. Really she does most of the work, honestly." Well at least she has somewhat confessed that Lourdes is acting as a consultant, and not a designer, which are two very different things. It's such an old-person career for a 14-year-old!
Now that Madonna has put Lourdes to work, she has to remind herself she's more than just an employee. "I see her more as a creative person, as an artist and less as my daughter as we are working, and then every once [in] a while I remembered she is my daughter." We knew their relationship was warm and fuzzy like that.
