Looks like we may have a new Material Girl on our hands. The web is abuzz with news that Madonna’s daughter, 17-year-old Lourdes Leon, is wowing audiences in a high school production of Grease. And wouldn’t you know she’s playing the bad girl of the bunch, Rizzo. Us Weekly reports on the performance:
“[She was] really good,” an eyewitness told Us Weekly of Lourdes’ performance. “She is a great singer, dancer and actress and seemed completely comfortable on the stage. She also seemed like she was having a lot of fun with the part.”
Luckily, Lourde’s mother Madonna managed to make it to at least one of her shows. A source told Us that the 55-year-old Material Girl watched her daughter with Lola’s father, Madonna’s ex Carlos Leon, perform on Friday, Dec. 6, but kept a low-profile in the auditorium.
In the show’s program, Lourdes’ bio read: “She would like to thank her parents with all of her heart for giving her guidance and love and supporting her passions wholeheartedly.”
Looks like diva really does run in the blood — well, then there’s Bobbi Kristina … Anyway, enjoy the audio clip of Lourdes’ performance as Rizzo below. You’ll want to skip to the 1-minute mark to get past the beginning dialogue.
