The Lourdes Project II

Remember when we all admired   her unibrow and moustache? Lourdes has evidently succumbed to either societal pressure or her mother’s obsession with beauty procedures. Here they are arriving in Malawi to purchase a new child.

Six months ago, Lourdes was still sporting the natural look.

Oh well. Lourdes is a beautiful girl, but it would have been nice for young women to have a new role model in the Frida Kahlo tradition. I just hope it was Lourdes who made the decision to go for the clean shaven look.

If your mom filled her face up with Sculptra and botox, you might have conflicted feelings about beauty and its importance. On the left, above, I see a woman who has drunk from Life’s Cup. On the right, I see a woman who has siphoned the Cup into her cheeks.

By this time tomorrow, Lourdes may have a new little sister. I’m sure it’s not really colonialism on Madonna’s part to enlarge her family by plucking children from Africa. She’s just trying to save Malawi, for god sake! As she explained to Vanity Fair, “I didn’t choose Malawi. Malawi chose me.”

    I saw it on the news last night and I thought exactly the same thing! Glad someone is pointing it out to the world.

    Oh lordy I am lost for words – truly I’m speechless, have no idea where to begin. But that eyebrow pluck must have been Lourdes in the bathroom in a fit of teenage pique surely!

    I think adopting children and giving them a loving supportive home is a wonderful thing……but what’s with these people having to go all the way across the world to do so?…..being Canadian i’m no expert on homless children in the US, but Jesus Christ, arent there a ton of kids to pick from the bronx?….or is that not chic enough?….and i believe young Lourdes has picked her unibrow in half due to anxiety, sorta like a parrot will pluck out it’s hind feathers when under a great deal of stress….

    You know, I think if she just smiled in picture number 1, she would look grand.

    Lourdes is becoming a woman. You can see it in the hair and accessories too.

    My biological big sister couldn’t stand my little fat caterpillar brows and when I was 13 she held me down and plucked them. Maybe Maddie did the same?

    Is it just me or does Madonna pic number 1 look a hell of a lot like Heather Mills?

    I wish one of these rich white people would adopt a special needs kid. Maybe that will be the new trend after the starving-African-babies one wears off.

    I love you.

    Madonna is a pathological attention hog. I predict Lourdes will be pregnant within the year.

    Good observations, Sister. That photo of Madonna without makeup where she’s NOT smiling– she sure has a funky ass dark aura hanging over her. She looks downright evil.

    What 13 year old girls wants unibrow and moustache?

  10. dewayne Says:

    susan: that’s probably what she gets for practicing a magic form which was originally intended for first-born jewish males. i’m all for women’s rights or whatever, but you just don’t fuck with some shit.

    Madonna + Malawi Baby = Access Denied. (I know it’s mean but sometimes I have a deep throaty giggle when really really rich people don’t get what they want).
