Lourdes Leon Opens Up About Mom Madonna :
"She has controlled me my whole life"
So, what was it really like growing up with Madonna as a mother?
Lourdes Leon revealed that despite her mom Madonna’s edgy public persona, she’s a strict parent.
The 25-year-old opens up about her relationship with her famous mom in a new feature for Interview magazine and shares some of the life lessons the superstar singer taught her.
She confided to her pop star parent’s best friend, Debi Mazar, that Madonna “is such a control freak, and she has controlled me my whole life.”
"We don’t get any handouts in my family. Obviously, I grew up with extreme privilege. There’s no denying that. But I think my mom saw all these other kids of famous people, and she was like, 'My kids are not going to be like this,'"
But Leon says that her mom has also always encouraged her to look at the big picture and think really seriously about what she wants to do with her life. 
She added, “My mom is very insistent on making me think about what I want to be known for beyond my looks.
