Madonna Does Not Approve of Daughter Smoking
Lourdes was photographed with a cigarette back in March
(WENN) - Madonna "wasnt very happy" when she saw snaps of her 15-year-old daughter puffing away with pals last month, insisting she doesnt approve of anyone smoking cigarettes.
The teenager, whos dad is personal trainer/actor Carlos Leon, was seen holding a lit cigarette while out with a group of friends in New York City in March and the pictures quickly went viral - leading to concerns the budding fashion designer was following in her rebellious moms footsteps. But Madge admits she didnt take the photographs too lightly.
During an interview on Rock Center with Brian Williams Wednesday night, she says, "[I] wasnt very happy. I think I am (tough) but honestly I dont think Im as tough as I should be. I think I need to be maybe tougher. Its hard though, its hard, everyday is a negotiation. But cigarette smoking Im not very fond of, for anyone. I dont approve of anyone smoking cigarettes - most of all my daughter."
And even though Madonna recently shot her new music video for Girls Gone Wild with a tobacco stick in her mouth, Madonna, a former smoker, insists Lourdes didnt pick up the nasty habit from her. She adds, "I dont smoke, thats just an accessory. Theres a difference. She smoked that cigarette before I did that video. She didnt get that from me."
