I feel bad for the kids of famous people, in a way. They’re thrust into the spotlight and live a particular lifestyle without ever having been given a choice just because it’s what their parents chose. Because of that, a lot of celebrity kids also go into the business or just go off the rails. Lourdes Leon, Madonna‘s daughter, seems to be trying to stay on the right track and live a somewhat normal life, though, since she’s attending the University of Michigan (her mother’s alma mater, though she never graduated) and living in a shared dorm room. Aw, hell no!
From The Daily Mail:
Speaking to the MailOnline a fellow student said: ‘She’s not as sociable as many people would have thought and she couldn’t be more different from Madonna’s huge persona.’
The pal added: ‘Every day that passes she’s slowly coming out of her shell.
‘There’s no diva behavior or anything like that. She’s really aware how people might judge her and doesn’t want a bad reputation.’
Lourdes recently enrolled in the School of Music, Theatre and Dance, attending classes and rehearsal sessions just a four-minute stroll away from her box room.
Her classmates swan around the hallways inside the modern Walgreen Drama Center singing and warming up their vocals with admirable confidence – but Lourdes isn’t quite there yet.
There’s no denying she’s got a gift. In the process to being accepted into the highly acclaimed school she had to submit a script reading and a classical singing performance on video.
But despite having such an extraordinary gift, a friend told MailOnline she ‘couldn’t be more different’ than her mum and is actually very shy, even introducing herself as ‘Lola’ when meeting new friends to avoid them picking up her identity straight away.
Yo, advice for Lola – find out which “pal” is giving quotes to The Mail Online and maybe don’t ever speak to them again because they’re NOT your friend.
Anyhow, it’s nice she’s going to university and having a normal experience. I’m sure it will never TRULY be normal, considering, but it must be refreshing and kind of a relief to be away from the environment she’s grown up in and try out what it’s like to be a normal teenager/college student.
