Lourdes Leon Talks Post High School Plans and What She Really Thought of Prom


Her mother may be Madonna, but Lourdes Leon is just a typical 18-year-old.

Leon, who recently graduated from high school, posted on her blog about traditional teenage rites of passage: prom, graduation, and enjoying the last summer before college.

"HEY to all the readers. I don't know if u heard (sarcasm) but I GRADUATED. GRAAAAAD. UATED. From High School," she wrote in a blog post titled "Lola Leaves High School."

"Its very difficult to wrap my head around because I feel like its something I've been talking about FOR EVER and it finally happened," she continued. "There also isn't the ominous presence of another year of high school and test taking up ahead like there usually is when you're about mid way into the beautiful summer."

We hate to break it to you, Lourdes, but there are also tests in college. The recent high school grad reportedly enrolled at The University of Michigan, a university her mother briefly attended before dropping out to become a pop star. 

Before she graduated, Leon celebrated another important high school ritual: the prom. 

"A week before graduation I attended the classic party every American teenager goes to despite the really bad music -- this is known as prom. What can I say? Those of you who have been probably know exactly what I'm talking about. Of course I had a beautiful time but I'll attribute that to the fact that I partied with my awesome friends all night," she wrote. "I got to spend an entire weekend kicking it withmy high school homies. It was a great way to end the year."

Best of luck to Lourdes in the future! Do you remember your high school prom and graduation?
