Liz Smith: ‘Confessions is so much fun!’
Madonna is in the city, promoting the November release of her CD, “Confessions on a Dance Floor” and her documentary, “I’m Going to Tell You a Secret” (I have heard – and even danced to – “Confessions,” and it is so much fun!)
A few vintage (as in culled from an old interview) Madonna remarks about disciplining her children have recently resurfaced. Some people are aghast – no TV, picking up your clothes, no exposure to relentless media. Yet M’s two kids, Lourdes and Rocco, impress those who meet them as not only well-behaved, but unusually on the ball, sensitive and imaginative. Mrs. Ritchie insists they read. Literacy Partners might consider Madonna as a guest reader some year. She knows the joy and power that comes from losing yourself in a good book.
But Madonna is like any other mom in some ways. Just the other day she and Lourdes dropped in at the dessert emporium Serendipity 3.
M had an egg-white, herb omelet with tomatoes. Lourdes enjoyed the Pasta Angelical, sans prosciutto. Then mother and daughter indulged in Serendipity’s famous Frozen Hot Chocolate. Those within earshot commented that 9-year-old Lourdes conducts herself like a “young lady.”
