During a recent interview with Interview Magazine, Lourdes recalled her childhood and opened up about how Madonna strictly parented her.
While speaking to her mom’s BFF Debi Mazar, who held the interview, the rising star revealed that Madonna is a stern mother.
She shared that the “La Isla Bonita” crooner observed other kids of famous people and was determined not to raise her kids that way, and so she was hard on them. Touching on the experience, Lourdes said:
My mom is such a control freak, and she has controlled me my whole life. I needed to be completely independent from her as soon as I graduated high school.
In her bid to find independence, the 25-year-old confessed that she paid her way through college and covered the cost for her apartment in New York. Lourdes also stated that although she was raised in privilege, her mother doesn’t give her kids handouts.
Calling Out The Body Shamers
Lourdes’ revelation about her mother comes shortly after she rained hell on body shamers. As The Blast previously reported, earlier this week, the model responded to the hate comments she received after flaunting her underarm hair at the Met Gala.
In the now-deleted post where she shared a photo of her look at the prestigious event, Lourdes stepped on trolls’ necks as she wrote, “normalize not discussing a woman’s body period! THINK before you make insensitive, misogynistic comments!
Fans soon gathered in the comments section, praising her for dismantling the patriarchy and always standing up for women against misogynists. Lourdes has a thriving career as a model, and her recent appearance at Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty Show is proof.

Mama’s Writing An Autobiography
Proud mama Madonna is also busy with her thing. The iconic singer who has an upcoming big-screen movie detailing her decades-long career recently opened up about her writing journey.
Madonna, who serves as co-writer on the unnamed Universal Pictures project, confessed that writing the script has been both “draining” and “challenging.”
The 63-year-old described the experience as psychotherapy as she was forced to recollect everything from her childhood until this point, which brought about some emotions that she was made to process.
Although more details about the upcoming projects haven’t been shared, Madonna noted that she doesn’t want it to be called a biopic. Instead, she believes it’s a “visual autobiography.”
