Lourdes Leon shamed for racy photoshoot, trolls say 'go be you, not your mama'
Lourdes, 24, did a 90s themed photoshoot for her Paper Magazine interview in barely-there clothing, also featuring her dad Carlos Leon.
Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon has had a fabulous 2021 so far. Right from being tapped as the face of Marc Jacobs fashion this year - after previously bagging her first fashion campaign with Stella McCartneyxAdidas in 2020 - to finally arriving on Instagram and attracting a massive following, she's done it all. For the uninitiated, she's as talented as the Queen of Pop, can both sing and dance but has chosen to make a career out of the latter. She even choreographed and co-directed her McCartney campaign with Anna Pollack and was involved in selecting artists, performance artists, dancers, and drummers to join her for the shoot in New York. Lourdes who goes by the name Lola recently did a cover shoot and interview with Paper Magazine discussing her professional plans and got shamed by trolls for the provocative photos after she shared some of them on her Instagram page.
Last month, it was Madonna who received flak from keyboard warriors after she shared a nipple-baring photo along with other racy images from her recent boudoir shoot. Shortly after, Instagram took down her images for violating the platform's nudity policies. She reshared the images on her feed with small edits and slammed the photo-sharing app for being "sexist" and censoring women. Madonna also hit back at 50 Cent who had seemingly made fun of her photos. It didn't take long for him to apologize to the 'Material Girl' hitmaker who called him out publicly.
'Go be you, not your mama'
Lourdes looked stunning in a 90s themed photoshoot which also featured her dad Carlos Leon. She posed in a blue monokini with a skimpy skirt in a couple of photos, a halter neck baby blue bikini top with matching bottoms in another, she posed in the back of a limousine wearing a strappy one piece, a pink crop top with bottoms for a photo taken inside a room, and a blue strapless dress with thigh-high boots for a photo that also featured Leon. Lourdes then slipped into a black bikini top with a matching skirt and a red wig with bangs for a couple of photos. Explaining what she wanted to do, on the work-front, Lourdes said, "I want to choreograph for artists, people that make music, visual artists. I want to choreograph mainly, but there is a big part of me that still does want to perform." To read the full interview, click here. To watch the behind-the-scenes from the photoshoot, click here.
After the interview and photos went live, trolls took to social media to rip the young star. "Lourdes Leon is gross…even worse, all she does is walk around trying to re-create Madonna’s most iconic moments. Go be YOU, girl…not your mama. #Madonna" read a tweet. Madonna photoshopped herself in one of the photos and shared it on her Instagram feed with the caption, "We are in a band" and the comments section was inundated with hate comments. "Sadly trash," wrote one while another commented "An overfiltered Madonna and her son in a wig." Another comment read, "Guess which one is a man" while another troll commented, "Also is lefty man or woman?"
