Madonna's Daughter Lourdes Beautifully Reflects On Graduation From High School! Look How Grown Up She's Become!
Not only can she dress well, but she's a good writer, too!
Lourdes Leon is making her mother proud these days as the 17-year-old has just graduated from high school!
The daughter of Madonna shared her thoughts on how it feels to be a graduate of New York City's LaGuardia High School and some of the questionable fashionable choices she's made over the years.
However, like any fashion groundbreaker, she has zero regrets!
"Looking back on the past four years of high school means looking back on unfortunate outfits I wore confidently to school (good for me).
Oh how I wish I could go back in time and urge my 14 year old self NOT to wear black rhinestone studded t-shirts with bloody skulls on them, purchased from really “hip” stores (wtf is hip anyways). I like to reassure myself though, that I had to go through that awkward time of “trying stuff out” to figure out what I liked wearing best. I still don’t think that I have a defined style, maybe because I don’t want to limit myself to what I should wear. Makes me happy knowing that I went to an arts school where any kind of style could fly: It gave me the confidence and the yolo spirit I needed to successfully look like a clown (it’s fine). Despite my unfortunate fashion choices I definitely don’t look back on High School with any bitterness. Even the times when cockroaches crawled out of my locker, or when trying to concentrate during an exam next to a room full of people rehearsing for show choir (ha), or walking up 7 flights of stairs on a Monday, or the lunchroom flash mobs. You know, standard things. I know that I was lucky enough to go to a truly exceptional High School that produces high quality shows and actually teaches you the craft of what you’re studying."
Lourdes also talked about the approaching summer, and how nervous slash excited she is for the future! Oh, and also what she'll be wearing this summer!
"Anyway, as summer approaches and as I keep forgetting to shave my legs, I leave behind my big granny sweaters and ironically flattering turtlenecks that are worn by lower east side hipsters and unfashionable moms in the 80′s. But I greet with open arms crop tops, Adidas sandals, fun bucket hats, and just walking around with no pants on and it being ok. I predict that over the summer I’ll be wearing a lot of tribal pants and sports bras and hopefully not a floral romper. Not dissing floral rompers – it’s just that they are abused.
I feel like High School Graduation is something I’ve been talking about forever and now its finally here. I was so excited about “being done with school” and now that I’m actually done I’m like clammy and sweating and nervous because… WHAT?!?! Knowing that I’ m going to have to wake myself up for class, and not someone banging vigorously at my door for 5 full minutes, relieves me and worries me a little. Wrapping up High School has been pretty hectic (not actually doing THAT much so idk why) and words cannot express my excitement to sit in the sun and jam wiv friends."
Sounds like the apple has definitely not fallen far from the Madonna tree, and we mean that in the best of ways!
We can't wait to watch this ah-mazing young lady continue to grow and shine in her life! It's been a joy so far, and we're sure it'll continue to be just that!
Congratulations on finishing another accomplishment in your super young but super impressive life!!!
