LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Madonna’s oldest daughter Lourdes is only 15, but she’s already following in her mom’s musical footsteps.
The 53-year-old queen of pop has revealed that her daughter’s vocal skills will appear on the song, “Superstar,” on her upcoming “MDNA” album (which drops on March 26).
“She’s my background singer. She just came over to the studio that day. Then I said, ‘Oh, can you sing this part?’ and she agreed to,” Madonna told Britain’s The Sun.
The singer said her daughter has vocal chops, but she’s quite modest about it.
“She has a very good voice. She’s quite shy about it and won’t admit it. Lots of people are knocking on my door to meet her about everything, movies and what-not,” she explained. “But she’s not really interested in any of it. She just wants to go to school. She says to me, ‘Mum, I just want to be a normal kid. I’m not ready for any of that’. I respect that, and if she ever wants to work with me on any level I welcome it.”
Adding, “But otherwise I leave her to her homework and school.”
Madonna (also mom to Rocco, 12, David, 6, and Mercy, 5) admits that sometimes she feels her “head is going to explode” being a single working mom.
“I’m not going to lie — it’s hard work having four kids and doing all the work I do,” she said.
The star also spoke briefly about her split with director Guy Ritchie, saying, “Sometimes I cope with it very well, sometimes it’s a struggle.”
Another thing Madonna has to cope with – injuries from her upcoming world tour, which kicks off on May 29 in Tel Aviv, Israel. The singer posted pictures of a bruised leg and a swollen lip on Facebook that she got while prepping for her tour – see them HERE!
