Madonna admits ‘growing up with a mother like me is a challenge’ for her six children


Twice-divorced mother-of-six Madonna admitted that ‘growing up with a mother like me is a challenge’ in her new cover story for Vanity Fair’s Spanish, Italian, and French editions.

‘It has been the most difficult, the hardest battle,’ the 64-year-old Queen of Pop told the mag of motherhood.

‘Today I am still struggling to understand how to be a mother and do my job. Because, whoever you are, having children and raising them is a work of art. And no one gives you a manual. You have to learn from mistakes. It is a profession that requires a lot of time. And it is exhausting because there is never rest.’

This Sunday, Michigan-born Madge will celebrate the 17th birthday of her daughter Chifundo ‘Mercy’ James.

The seven-time Grammy winner is also mother to daughter Lourdes, 26 (with Carlos Leon); son Rocco, 22 (with ex-husband #2 Guy Ritchie); son David Banda, 17; twin daughters Estere + Stella, 10; and ‘much of my happiness comes from them.’

‘What makes me happiest is seeing how each of them has discovered their own creativity, and that it comes from an authentic place,’ Madonna gushed.

‘I have never encouraged my daughter Lola to make music or my son Rocco to paint. But I’ve always exposed them to art, to music, and I’m happy that they’ve found ways to express themselves. I have respect and admiration for them and for what they do.’

The self-made superstar continued: ‘To see them happy, see them grow, evolve and find the things they like. Much of my happiness comes from them. And also to a great extent the inspiration that some artists give me.’

Madonna’s 35-date The Celebration Tour – honoring her four-decade career – kicks off July 15 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver with RuPaul’s Drag Race #8 champ Bob the Drag Queen as her opening act.

London fans outraged over not getting the first round of pre-sale tickets for the Hung Up on Tokischa singer’s October 14th concert at O2 Arena have one more chance if they register through Live Nation for a password before Thursday at 9am.

Here’s hoping Madonna has solved her lingering knee and hip injuries, which forced her to cancel 14 shows of her 75-date The Madame X Tour back in 2019-2020. 

In the article, the Raising Malawi co-founder barely made mention of the status of her self-directed Universal Pictures biopic titled Little Sparrow.

On August 26, the gossip site DeuxMoi shared leaked texts indicating that Sparrow has been a ‘nightmare production’ because of the ‘script and constant changes’ and ‘might not happen’ because it’s ‘costing a ton of money.’

Madonna co-wrote the script with Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody, who was later replaced by Independent Spirit Award-winning screenwriter Erin Wilson (The Girl on the Train, Secretary).

Ozark’s Julia Garner had been offered the plum part of the two-time Golden Globe winner – according to Variety – while Julia Fox is the frontrunner to play her longtime gal pal Debi Mazar.

Madonna previously helmed two dismally-reviewed box office bombs – Filth and Wisdom in 2008, and W.E. in 2011.
