Madonna: Responsible Parent!

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

MADONNA never wants to be an “irresponsible parent”.

The singer, 53, revealed she pulled out of the Australian leg of her MDNA tour last month as her children Lourdes, 15, Rocco, 12, David and Mercy, both seven, are her “first priority” and it would be unfair to them if she was so far away.

“I am really and truly sorry to have disappointed you and that’s something I don’t feel very good about,” Madonna said in a YouTube video apology to her Australian fans.

“I know the last time I was on tour I missed Australia as well.

“My children are my first priority and because they are older I can’t take them with me on the road everywhere.

“I really feel I would be an irresponsible parent if I didn’t stop my tour and spent time with them. My daughter is going to be leaving home soon.

“Please forgive me and know when I do come to Australia I will have made the wait worth your while and I will put on the greatest show on earth.”
