Madonna expressed herself in an interview on Wednesday’s “Today” show that she was not happy to see her 15-year-old daughter, Lourdes, smoking.
Photos of Lourdes smoking emerged late last month when a paparazzi took a picture of her having her nicotine break in New York where the legal age for smoking is 18.
“I wasn’t very happy,” Madonna told “Rock Center’s” Harry Smith about her eldest daughter’s cigarette smoking, “but honestly, I don’t think I’m as tough as I should be.
“I think I need to be maybe tougher. It’s hard. “Every day is a negotiation, but cigarette smoking I’m not fond of on anyone, most of all my daughter,” she said in the exclusive interview.
When Smith mentioned about Madonna’s smoking in her latest music video, “Girl Gone Wild,” she confirmed that she doesn’t smoke.
“I don’t smoke.” “That’s just an accessory, Harry. There’s a difference. Lourdes smoked that cigarette before I did that video!”
The Material Girl who has three other young children namely Mercy James, David Banda Mwale Ciccone Ritchie and Rocco Ritchie also said that her children only see one side of her, shes simply Mom.
“To my children there’s mostly the one who says, ‘Have you done your homework?’ and ‘Why are you wearing that?’ and ‘Why did you say that?’ and ‘What are you eating that for?’” she said.
