Like mother, like daughter: Madonna wishes teen daughter Lourdes would 'dress more conservatively'

While Madonna continues to push the limit with her jaw-dropping stage costumes and red carpet couture, she hopes daughter Lourdes doesn't follow in her footsteps. 

"If anything, I wish she'd dress more conservatively," the pop icon told Us Weekly. "How's that for irony?"

Madge, 51, has teamed up with her 13-year-old daughter, who has developed her own eccentric style, to create a teen clothing line for Macy's aptly named Material Girl.

"I did a line for H&M, which I enjoyed, but it was a lot of work," she said. "I thought, I don't want to give up the rest of my careers, so I'm not going to do my own line again.

"But I have a 13-year-old with tireless energy who wanted to do this. I've been involved in business meetings, but Lola's really doing the work. I just sit in the corner on my BlackBerry!"

Though the singer currently models for high-end fashion label Dolce & Gabbana, she said her new venture in teen clothing design was a result of her daughter.

"Lola has been bothering me for ages about designing clothes," she told the Associated Press. "As we are working, I see her more as a creative person, as an artist. Then every once in a while, I remembered that she is my daughter."

How come we never hear of madonna vacationing on her own private island? Can she not afford one?

"Papa, Don't Preach" has turned into "Mama, Don't Preach!" How could Madonna possibly expect a more conservative daughter in her manner of dress, or anything else with the life that she's led? Talk about a double standard. A child learns what they are taught by their parents behavior and lifestyle.

I cannot understand Madonna expecting her daughter to be different from her after the way she dresses. I agree she has double standards.
