‘Queen of Pop´ Madonna is no stranger to controversy, but the pop star’s latest gimmick involving her 12-year-old daughter Lourdes has stirred a hornet’s nest.
The pre-teen is dolled up in full wedding garb with a veil, white lace gloves and a slash of scarlet lipstick in the 51-year-old pop star’s latest video, emulating her mother’s look in her controversial single ‘Like A Virgin´, reported Daily Mail online.
The fact that Madonna is seen making out with her 22-year-old boyfriend, Brazilian model Jesus Luz, in the same video has added to the furore.
The popstar had earlier pulled her eldest child into the spotlight when she brought her on stage during the curtain call of her epic 12-month global tour ‘Sticky and Sweet´.
Lourdes who is affectionately called Lola, had raised eyebrows with her revealing outfit, the same as Madonna’s troupe of dancers.
The latest development is a startling about-turn as Madonna has for years brought her children up with draconian strictness and made news with the revelation that she does not allow them to watch TV.
“In the past couple of years Lola has grown six inches, so she’s actually taller than her mum now. They are very close and most of the time they get on pretty well. But she is the only person I know who answers back to Madonna and gets away with it,” said a source close to the singer.
“Lola is just acting the way her mum did when she first burst onto the scene 25 years ago. The difference is she’s far, far younger,” added the source.
Madonna has three younger children Rocco, 9, her son with Guy Ritchie and David, 3 and Mercy, 4, her two adopted children from Malawi.
