Lourdes turns fashion designer

Now, if my mum was Madonna I wouldn’t expect to be set to work at the age of 14. Not that Lourdes has gone and got herself a paper-round – although that we would love to see – no, rather she is a fashion designer. Naturally. As Madonna is on the promotional trail for her Lourdes-inspired kids line for US department store Macy’s, the singer has admitted that the brains behind the designs is the teenager herself. ‘If Lola wasn't so completely involved in the line, designing, consulting, whatever you want to call it, I wouldn't do it,’ mummy Madge revealed to Access Hollywood. ‘Really she does most of the work, honestly.’ But as there are better places for a 14 year-old to be than in a design studio, Madonna is keeping Lourdes out of the limelight for the time-being. ‘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 [the clothing line]. 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.’’ So in the meantime Madonna is happy to take some of the credit for her kid’s work? Hmm, we’re not sure if that’s cool, but hell, she’s Madonna! [nymag]
