Madonna’s Daughter Lourdes Makes Out With Boyfriend in Front of Mom

by Lindsay Mannering

lourdes leonWhen you're the world's biggest pop star and a mother to a teenage girl, the lines of appropriateness probably become a little blurry. Madonna premiered her new concert film Madonna: The MDNA Tour earlier this week in New York, and her 16-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon and 12-year-old son Rocco Ritchie were there to help her celebrate. Us Weekly reports that Madonna was hanging out and having fun with her kids all night, but things got a little weird when Lourdes started making out with her boyfriend, Homeland actor Timothee Chalamet.

According to the source, Madonna didn't bat an eye when her teenage daughter started sucking face. Interesting.

Pretty sure sheer and terrifying embarrassment would have prevented me from doing anything like that in front of my mother as a teenager, but Lourdes obviously feels differently, and it may be because she sees her mother more as a friend, as a peer, than as an authority figure.

Not that kissing is BAD, it's just that as parents, most of us don't want to see our kids going at it. We assume it's happening, but it's another thing to witness it.

Who knows, maybe Madonna and Lourdes have a very open relationship and can talk about tough subjects like sex, drugs, and cone-bras with unusually open minds.

I mean, all Lourdes has to do is one simple Google search to learn about her mother's adventurous youth. (Truth or Dare, anyone?) You sort of can't skirt those issues when you're Madonna trying to raise a young lady. 

But seeing as I'm not world famous and my daughter will have zero access to my teenage history, I can say with a comfortable amount of certainty that I'd be shocked if she made out in front of me. Shocked. And appalled.

Madonna and Lourdes definitely have a different kind of relationship, for better, and for worse.

What would you do if your teen made out in front of you?

 Our 16 year old and her bf will cuddle and give each other kisses, and hold hands in front of us.  But it's mostly g rated and since dh and I are affectionate towards each other I don't have an issue with it.

Not happening. I would not be okay with it. We talk about everything and u know someday she will be kissing boys, but I do not want to see it, beyond a quick peck.

I'd stare directly at them slowly inching my face closer and closer to theirs thus making the situation so uncomfortable for everyone that my teen would never do it again.

Demonstrates a serious lack of respect for you and others.  When kids this age act as though they are oblivious to anyone except themselves, someone needs to take control of the situation.  Generally that is an adult.  This tells me that the girl has no expectation of being treated with respect.  Had that happened in our home, my husband would have escorted the guy out - and he would not have returned.  She would have had some major consequences.  But then again - we expected the boyfriend to:  come in to pick her up for a date, speak to both of us, carry on a conversation, demonstrate a modicum of maturity, escort her back to the house at the appointed time, etc.  Teens may not know how to do a lot of things, but acting respectful and at least understanding that there are clear boundaries and appropriate behavior is not too much to ask.  You are not their "buddy" - you are their parent.  Allowing kids to grow up too fast is a huge mistake.  Madonna's daughter obviously has little respect for her mom - but then again - why should she?  She lost her standing with her daughter a long time ago.  Plus, she has no boudaries of her own - so her daughter has been given none.  Very sad to me.  Lourdes will be another "star's" kid who ends up in the headlines as a seriously wayward, lost individual.  Got the name and got the money, but little else.  She thinks she has it all, but the things that really count are totally missing.
