Madonna: I Need To Be A “Tougher” Mom

Truth rating: 10



Madonna says she “wasn’t happy” to see recent pictures of her 15-year-old daughter Lourdes smoking, and admits she needs to be a “tougher” mother.

In a “Rock Center with Brian Williams” interview previewed on the “Today” show, the Queen of Pop says she doesn’t “think I’m as tough as I should be.”


“It’s hard; every day is a negotiation,” Madonna notes. “But cigarette smoking I’m not very fond of — for anyone.”

She continues, “I don’t approve of anyone smoking cigarettes — most of all my daughter.”

Of her own smoking in music videos, Madonna says “there’s a difference,” since she uses cigarettes as “an accessory.”

Madonna also says it’s “pretty challenging” to be a “single mom of four” and live her life “in a metaphorical fish bowl.”

“But so far I’ve survived with sanity and humor in tact,” the singer adds.
