Madonna’s daughter plays peacemaker

London, March 10 (IANS) Singer Madonna’s 19-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon has stepped in to mend the rift between her mother and brother Rocco.

Madonna is currently in a custody battle with estranged husband Guy Ritchie for Rocco, and at a recent concert, she became emotional about missing him. It seems Lourdes keeps Madonna informed about Rocco.

“Lourdes is very concerned about her mother. Madonna has no official access or way of knowing what’s going on in Rocco’s life. She also can’t get direct contact with Guy (Ritchie). He wants to conduct all their business through lawyers,” a source told The Sun newspaper, reports

“Madonna is so proud of Lourdes, she believes she is proof of what a brilliant mum she was because she is now at university,” the source added.

Rocco left the “Vogue” hitmaker’s Rebel Heart tour late last year to be with his father, stepmother Jacqui Ainsley and three half-siblings here, and later defied a court order to return to the US to spend Christmas with his mother.

Last week, a judge ruled the teenager should stay with the “Man From U.N.C.L.E.” filmmaker for the time being in order to prevent his schooling from being disrupted. The former couple have also been advised to make an amicable agreement over custody of the youngster.

It was claimed at the weekend that Madonna, who also has adopted kids Mercy and David, both 10, is resigned to Rocco living with his father permanently, but has insisted on imposing a number of conditions regarding rules, structure and security, if that is to be the case.

The two had recently featured in a steamy cover for a popular fashion magazine, and about the experience of the shoot, she said, “I was feeling very hot, since we were in Maldives, and it was very hot, but if you would see the cover, Sid is definitely looking very hot and I feel that he has raised my hotness quotient.”

About Sidharth’s ‘tweet fight’ with Kamaal R Khan for the latter’s comment on the cover, Sidharth said, “I didn’t defend anyone, if somebody is making cheap comments on any girl, it’s wrong. That’s it, I don’t want to give it any more importance.”

‘Kapoor & Sons’ is gearing up for release on 18 March.

Lea Michele prefers no make-up look off work

Actress Lea Michele prefers not to wear make-up when she is not working, to give her skin a chance to breathe.

“First and foremost, I don’t wear make-up when I don’t have to. When I’m out and about with friends and family, I’m not pounding make-up on my face – I’ll put on mascara and lip balm and go about my day. I like to give my skin a chance to breathe when it needs to,” Michele said to fashion-industry trade journal, WWD, reports

“I drink a ton of water and I always try to get a good night’s sleep. That’s the first place I see my skin get affected – when I’m travelling on planes full of dry air. I treat my skin very delicately; I don’t go to bed without washing my face; I’m consistent with my products,” she added.

“New Year’s Eve” star also lives a “very healthy lifestyle” and loves working out.

“I pride myself in (the fact) that I do live a very healthy lifestyle. I try to eat as well as I can – I work out all the time, I hike, I enjoy all the amazing things California has to offer: food, produce, scenery, the beach. It helps me feel better and do my job better,” she said.
