Madge already helped make her 14-year-old daughter’s fashion designing dreams come true when she collaborated with Lourdes on a line for Macy’s. And now The Sun is saying that Madge is kicking Lourdes out on the professional ho stroll and hoping to turn her into a pop superstar like herself. Madge wants Lourdes to record a song called “It’s So Cool” with her and she plans to either release it on her next album or slap it on the soundtrack for her movie about 1930s socialite Wallis Simpson. Yes, because “it’s so cool” was a phrase that Wallis Simpson used in the 1930s all the time.
Madge and Lourdes apparently yodeled out that song in a studio together 8 years ago, but it wasn’t released until 2009 when she put it on the European version of her album Celebration. Lourdes’ voice was erased from that version, but I guess Madge feels like her time is now. A source said this: “Madonna hopes Lourdes will step into her shoes and become one of the biggest female artists in the world. She’s the perfect mentor for her daughter and is keen to assist her first steps into the industry. Lourdes has a great voice and plenty of character – like her mum.”
I’ve never understood why some of the chirruns of international millionaire superstars want to follow in their parent’s footsteps. Why? Too much work and unneeded stress. Wouldn’t it be much more fun to go to Catholic boarding school, get kicked out for doing lines during confessional and then spend the next 10 years supporting a model boyfriend by selling stories about your mom to the tabloids and posing topless in the Mexican edition of Playboy? That’s how it’s supposed to go! But if Madge and Lourdes insist on going about it this way, they can at least go really hard and show The Smith family how nepotism is really done.
