On May 26 1997, Madonna appeared on the cover of People magazine as part of the “New Sexy Moms” feature.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Even Madonna, who moved a month before Lourdes’s birth from her Hollywood Hills mansion to a more baby-friendly one-story spread in a quieter neighborhood, is becoming downright strait-laced. “TV is poison,” saying that she would forbid Lourdes to watch it. “To be plopped in front of a television instead of being read to or talked to or encouraged to interact with other human beings is a huge mistake.”

On March 13 2012, Interscope released a preview of Madonna’s Superstar from her forthcoming MDNA album.

Superstar was written and produced by Madonna, Hardy “Indigo” Muanza and Michael Malih.

During the recording session, Madonna asked her daughter Lourdes if she would sing on the song and agreed.  Madonna had this to say about Lourdes’ voice:

She has a very good voice. She’s quite shy about it and won’t admit it. Lots of people are knocking on my door to meet her about everything, movies, what-not. But she’s not really interested in any of it. She just wants to go to school. She says to me, ‘Mum, I just want to be a normal kid. I’m not ready for any of that.’ I respect that, and if she ever wants to work with me on any level, I welcome it. But otherwise, I leave her to homework and school.

On December 3 2012, Superstar was issued as a special edition free CD for the Brazilian newspaper, Folha de S. Paulo.
