Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon says she’s ‘cursed’ with her sexuality

‘It’s such a curse’

Madonna’s daughter has branded her sexuality a “curse” that is a distraction from her work.

Lourdes Leon, who the Material Girl had with her ex Carlos Leon, has been making waves on her own since dabbling in fashion in 2010 and has been pushing boundaries ever since.

The 26-year-old is making a name for herself in music, dance and modelling under the stage name, ‘Lolahol’ following in the footsteps of her trailblazing mum.

Despite having the obvious advantage of being the daughter of one of the most famous performers on the planet, Lourdes has opened up about the things that are holding her back.

It’s boys.

“I would say my biggest sin is liking boys,” she said in an interview with The Face.

“It’s such a curse. If you can avoid it – men or boys in general – I would, because what a distraction.”

Lourdes said to be great at anything takes absolute focus, and one tactic to ensure that is to “avoid boys at all costs”.

Girls, Lourdes said, aren’t distracting at all because “I’m painfully straight, it’s terrible”.

“I wish it wasn’t so, but unfortunately these are the cards I’ve been dealt. I am cursed, plagued with liking these men.”

Lourdes also told The Face who her first crush was, and it is rather unexpected.

Thankfully her mum put an end to it pretty quickly.

The Mugler model confessed that, even though she was just a kid when she fell for her “embarrassing” first crush, she believes it shaped her tastes for the type of guy she wanted to be with in the future.

She recalled: “I remember my dad showed me Jackass when I was 11 or 12.

“They’re the most fried guys ever, but I thought that they were so cool and hot. They’re literally idiots – they were, like, stapling their ass cheeks together. And for some reason, it sparked something in me where I felt like I was so deeply in love with Bam Margera.

“I remember going to my mom and literally crying to her and being like: ​’I am in love with this man and I don’t know what to do about it.’

“And she was like: ​’Well, listen, he’s married, Lola.’ That was her response to me. It wasn’t: ​’First of all, you’re 12.’ She really matter-of-factly responded to me that he was married.”

Timothee Chalamet was her first boyfriend.
