“My mom is such a control freak, and she has controlled me my whole life,” she says and later added, “I needed to be completely independent from her as soon as I graduated high school.”

The 22-year-old works as a model and models Rihanna’s lingerie line, Savage X Fenty, pays for her own schooling cost and New York apartment, “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. Also, I feel like if your parents pay for things, then it gives them leverage over you.”

“My mom is very insistent on making me think about what I want to be known for beyond my looks,” Leon said when she opened up about how she wanted to earn money based off of other talents aside from modeling. “That’s not what I want people to remember me by. It’s not real.”

“Financially, modeling is a smart decision. I enjoy being very hands-on with the campaigns I do, so that I’m not just modeling, per se.”

Lourdes Leon is Madonna’s daughter with ex-boyfriend and fitness trainer Carlos Leon. She starred in campaigns for the likes of Miu Miu and Stella McCartney, walking in Gypsy Sport’s New York Fashion Week show and sitting front row of Burberry, Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang.
