Madonna says it’s great to having a working family. She recently sat down with Extra at the Billboard Music Awards to talk about her MDNA tour and having Lourdes, 16, and Rocco, 12, help out on the shows.
Speaking to Jerry Penacoli she said, “It was great to have a working family… to me that’s my idea of fun, to be creative, to do what I love to do and see my kids working around me and earning their way in life. My daughter worked in the costume department and she loved it. My son was in the show, and he loved it.”
Asked on how she juggles motherhood with her career – she replied, “I try to find the right balance between being there for them and guiding them and also being an artist. I’m trying to find enough time in the day to do those jobs well.”
“I try to be very clear with them. This is my persona for work. What we aspire to do is to work and to be good people. If you don’t have those two things, fame is nothing, so I try to drill that into their heads.”
When the topic of meeting Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala came up – Madonna said it was the second time they had met.
She revealed, “I met her years and years ago when she was a little girl, believe it or not. She told me she was a huge fan of mine, and it was during the time I was wearing all of the rubber bracelets on my arms. I took off all of the bracelets and gave them to her and then I completely forgot about it. She reminded me when I saw her the other night. Now she’s a pregnant lady!”
As for the famous feud with Elton John – she confirmed the two had made up in Nice, France.
She said of their reconciliation, “After we kissed and hugged, he paid for my dinner, as he should.”
