Madonna’s 15-year-old daughter Lourdes has been working hard in her mother’s wardrobe department while travelling the world for her ‘MDNA’ shows, and hasn’t been spared the unenviable task of handling the laundry. Lourdes wrote on her blog “This summer I was surprisingly productive. So, I thought I would tell you all about the joys of folding underwear. As you probably know this woman I like to call my mother went on tour for her ‘MDNA’ album. As a summer job I decided to work in the wardrobe department. All of my friends were getting summer jobs and I wanted one too. Mine was a little unconventional but still a great experience and a lot of fun. Being in the wardrobe department meant me and a few other girls dressed the dancers during the show when they had quick changes. Thirty seconds to totally dress a sweaty dancer can be insane and provoke mucho anxiety. Doing this night after night was pretty cray, but I loved every minute of it (sic).”
Lourdes, who’s father is personal trainer Carlos Leon, said in her blog that she enjoyed Amsterdam in the Netherlands, Copenhagen in Denmark and Turkey the most, and has taken to life on the road. She added “It’s really a great experience to be able to work on a large production, traveling around like a family, setting up for an amazing show and all having the same purpose. I developed really good relationships with a number of people, not just in wardrobe but in other departments too. Dancers, singers, sound crew, catering, etc. To be able to be a part of such an inspiring production was one of my best summers so far.” I wonder what kind of hourly rate Lourdes was pulling in.
Lourdes’ half brother, Rocco, 12, has also had an active role in the ‘MDNA’ shows, and has been on stage to dance with his mother most nights. Madonna also has two younger children, Mercy James, six, and David Banda, seven, but it is not known whether they were with her throughout the tour.Tweet
