Hey! If this is the case, then Madonna has done her job as a parent!
Because according to reports, the pop icon's 16-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon is ready to forge her own path out of her mom's shadow, and reportedly cannot wait to go to college!
Sources close to the teen claim that just like most young ladies her age, she's started to rebel against Madge's rules, and is fiercely adamant about using the money she made off the Material Girl clothing line to pay for tuition at her dream school - Bard College in New York, where she wants to study performing arts!
An insider explains:
"Lourdes can't wait to leave home and get to university. She's already planned it all. Madonna is a strict parent, but Lourdes has been rebelling. She's also fed up being in the spotlight. That's why she didn't go on stage during Madonna's tour."
Nothing wrong with that!
It's hard enough figuring out who you are and your own personal goals and priorities at that age, so we're sure it doesn't help when your mother is as influential and creative as hers!
But obviously, she's coming into her own on HER terms, and we couldn't be more thrilled to see her taking such an active interest so young at making her personal mark on the world!
You just keep doing you, gurl!
We can't wait to see where your journey takes you!
