Most of us spent our summers as camp counselors, store cashiers and babysitters. But when you’re Madonna‘s daughter, Lourdes Leon, your summer job is decidedly more glam: working in the wardrobe department of your mom’s massive summer MDNA tour.
“All of my friends were getting summer jobs and I wanted one too,” Leon explains in her latest blog post for her clothing line, Material Girl. “Mine was a little unconventional but still a great experience and a lot of fun.”
Leon hints that she spent a lot of time folding underwear, and posts some cool backstage pics from mom’s tour (above). But her biggest task? “Being in the wardrobe department meant me and a few other girls dressed the dancers during the show when they had quick changes,” she explains. “Thirty seconds to totally dress a sweaty dancer can be insane and provoke mucho anxiety. Doing this night after night was pretty cray, but I loved every minute of it.”
The 16-year-old got to travel the world (she lists Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Turkey as her favorite stops) and loved working on the tour, “traveling around like a family, setting up for an amazing show and all having the same purpose,” she writes. “To be able to be a part of such an inspiring production was one of my best summers so far.” Click over to Leon’s blog to see and hear more about her experience. Tell us: Are you jealous of Lourdes’s glam summer job?
