Lourdes is actually stunning–she looks like a great kid, personality-wise as well.

Madonna, what a joke she is. Just shows that anyone will sell their soul to go to filthy-oil-rich Dubai. If you are a good-looking woman, get over their as fast as you can. Perform a few services and you’ll come home rich.

#4, she’s an icon and she’s not ‘old’ and ‘ugly’. Now if Jared should stop posting certain celebrities, without a doubt Horsey Montwat and ******* Simpson!

nice unibrow.

[☆F a m o u s☆] @ 04/18/2008 at 5:38 pm

nice unibrow.

i think that lordes is beautiful, however, it’s obvious that her mother has control over her. she has a unibrow and a stache, and being 11, that must be embarassing to her. she also looks very physically mature, like she’s much older. madonna should let her “do” what she wants, (wax, like duh!) and stop controlling lordes, she’s not a baby anymore.

beautiful kid.
talk bad about her all you want.
god only knows what you look like.

#8 You obviously haven’t a clue what you’re talking about. Playing Dubai is no different than playing London or Paris. It’s not selling your soul, it’s doing business.

Jealous that no one wants you enough to pay that much for you to do your job?

Madonna is having some of the best times of her life commercially right now — and considering her career, that’s really saying something!

remember da truth @ 04/18/2008 at 5:50 pm

Shelly, are you nuts? I HOPE that a parent still has control over an 11-year-old!
And how do you know what Lourdes wants? I had a friend who didn’t want to shave her legs until her mother made her, and I worked with another woman who dragged her 14-year-old to wax her legs and the girl absolutely didn’t want to — it was all her mother’s idea.

I think it’s great that Lourdes is being raised not to put as much emphasis on looks as superficial bloggers who get so caught up in other people’s lives because they don’t have much going on in their own.

the fact that shes being able to command such a high amount speaks for her position. Man, after 25 and still white hot!

Lillianne @ 04/18/2008 at 5:57 pm

I agree with Rememba 1000%. In the first place it’s nobody’s business. And I would hate to see Lourdes believing everything is all about looks. She has plenty of years ahead ot her to pluck her eyebrows and every other chore that comes along with being a gal.

But pay attention. She is growing more beautiful before our very eyes. I predict by 18 she will be drop dead gorgeous.

She is the one and only Queen of pop music, simply the best !

Lourdes is very stunning. I think her mom is smart for not placing too much pressure on her to be pretty on the outside. She has plenty of time to shave and wax. Let her be a natural beauty. And let her inner beauty shine!

Madonna = O V E R R A T E D.

who cares if its madonnas daugther or not, there is no need to take picture of a kid ? if they didnt write it was madonnas kid i even wouldnt know who the little girl was
what so ever

Lourdes is a beautiful little girl and, yes, she is showing signs of becoming a drop dead gorgeous woman. Hope she would not buy into ‘making ourselves pretty for guys through so much pain’ crap (meaning: waxing, plucking, surgery…)

it stupid to take pics of the kids, its not their fail their parents are famous

Angel eyes @ 04/18/2008 at 6:39 pm

For someone who preaches against materialism, she sure is a greedy hypocrite!

lourdes is so beautiful!!!……..

to all the haters:
you know they say that people who have a uni-brow will live a prosperous life. it’s sort of like a destiny mark.
she is gorgeous, and she will fix it when time comes. children should be natural.
and she is rich.
so who wins here?

For God’s sake, give that girl a tweezer!

her daughter needs to wax her eye brows

She's a sell-out @ 04/18/2008 at 7:49 pm

remember da truth — Dubai like London or Paris? Maybe for the filthy rich westerners that are there…for the slave laborers from Sri Lanka, Malasyia and elsewhere in the poor Islamic world, and for the Emirati women (who are considered property by Wahhabis which happens to be the state religion of the Emirates), life isn’t so good, and definitely not London or Paris.

stephanie @ 04/18/2008 at 8:27 pm

youd think that if you were madonnas daughter youd be smart enough to shave ur eyebrows….but i guess not

Mary schluck @ 04/18/2008 at 8:29 pm

I think Lordes is beauiful and will be a “countdown until she’s 18″ girl.BUT…she does need some tweezers,

Lourdes is beautiful!!

i go to dance at the same place she does on the same days. i always see her running around.

she does need to pluck the unibrow

damn…what is that thing ?? unibrow + stache = nasty

Here's The Deal @ 04/18/2008 at 11:26 pm

SHE’S 11!!! Who the hell cares if she has a unibrow????

pleaseee get her waxed or the tweezer’s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! oh my

very beautiful unibrow and all

She’s 11.

Let her care about waxing and unibrow when she’s 14.

Madonna is amazing, her career is what all others aspire to. Plain and simple. She is a living legend, let her make her money. Now, about her daughter, she should know that being “her daughter” she is going to get photographed and ridiculed over her looks. That mustache has to go and the eyebrows need some work. I would kill my mom if she let me look like that when I was 11.

Francophile @ 04/19/2008 at 5:58 am

Ain’t no normal parent wax their child when she isn’t even a teenage yet _

That little girl is beautiful period…and INTELLIGENT which is the main thing. She is very good at school and is a bright kid who reads a lot in several languages.

Did you ever heard her speaking french then translate in english to her mum who sat besides her or help her to pronounce a french word correctly ? I have ! And this girl is very bright and mature intellectually.

She is really beyond her age and is well behave. You can call Madonna whatever you want but she did a great job in raising her children in a cosmopolite environment where they are perfect bilingual and perfect tri-lingual when it comes to Lourdes who manages to speak french, spanish and english …all in the same conversation even translating in a wink to her mother with the right intonation like a real french mademoiselle.

Besides Madonna told once that she was jealous of her children ability to speak several languages with ease when she is still has to struggle with it

Jayne♥xx @ 04/19/2008 at 6:34 am

the girl has the same front teeth of her mama!lol:P

“Besides Madonna told once that she was jealous of her children ability to speak several languages with ease when she is still has to struggle with it”

Yeah, when she speaks she keeps slipping out of her British accent every other sentence.

ok i have a thing to tell to all those ppl who say her daughter is pretty and she shouldnt wax or whatever.
Ok first, i totaly dont agree with you. She shouldnt wax youre right but she should put on a little makeup on her stache and just take a gentle care of her eyebrows just pluck some of the in the middle and voila!
Shes a girl and in 2-3 years she is gonna look at these pictures and cry and say shes ugly and say it was her moms fault for not telling her to do something about it. EVERY teenger on planet earth does that! so there.

Such a GORGEOUS daughter of such a Gorgeous Mom…
Madonna is a real beauty, A beauty Goddess…And her daughter is perfect

thats someones child have some dignity

remember da truth @ 04/19/2008 at 5:26 pm

#32 There are no slaves in Dubai — get your facts straight. The laborers sign contracts and are paid low wages and have poor housing, but they are not slaves.
And women are not property there. Muslim women do not even have to cover their heads.

You are prejudiced and your emotional outbursts show it. Madonna is not a sell-out to do business where she wants and where she is wanted. If she commands that price, then so be it. Tiger Woods, Roger Federer — they go to Dubai for their livelihoods too. If it bothers you, that’s YOUR problem, not theirs.
Travel, study, learn, and you won’t be so prejudiced once you have actual facts.

holy moly @ 04/19/2008 at 9:38 pm

Madonna is a plastic surgery addict.

Lourdes looks older than 11.

holy moly @ 04/19/2008 at 9:41 pm

Madonna wears the some old dumb hairdoo, parted in the middle.

#50 Well said. If you want to talk about slaves, talk about domestic workers from the carribean and mexico who work in NY city and other cities. they do not even have labor contracts and work 24 hours for just food and lodging.

Jeez that # 32 is so prejudiced against Islamic countries. Go to college and learn some facts before posting those rants.

Stop being bad, guys!!!! If you dont like Lourde DONT EVEN COME TO POST A COMMENT TO THE SITE ABOUT HER!!!!!!!

the “site” is about madonna?

angelic fruitcake @ 04/20/2008 at 6:21 am

I think Lourdes is absolutely stunning, and looks so much like her mom. I love her hair. She will be a heart breaker. Since when do 11 year olds wax, common people give her a break. Will see what you will be saying in a couple of years.

remember da truth @ 04/20/2008 at 9:58 am

It’s disturbing that people are so interested in what a young girl looks like, and so concerned that she look perfect and enticing for THEIR satisfaction.

the poor girl looks like her mother. her mother looks awful.

I agree with #30. If Lourdes is old enough to wear makeup she’s old enough to take care of her nasty eyebrows!

I cant believe how all these people writes like if they acutally know and have a close realtionship with Lourders.
I bet they have not clue of what is goin on in Lourdes or Madonna lifes

sooo amazingly beautiful…seriously!!!

it sucks how so many people seem to be so ageist, one person referring to Madonna as an ‘old bat.’ personally, i really admire Madonna – she has guts ,stamina, determination, creativity, physical fitness and the street cred of someone half her age. As for her daughter, Lourdes, let her be, for crying out, shes only 11 for goodness sakes. The paps – often men at that – are incredibly cruel at the best of times to adults celebs – but to their kids too? Thats way stepping over the mark. They should back off from youngsters – its kinda really sick how they go on. End of.
