Madonna: 'My Children Handle Fame Well'
Madonna is adamant her children have a healthy attitude towards fame, even though they are growing up in the spotlight.
The Material Girl insists 13-year-old daughter, Lourdes, from her relationship with Carlos Leon and Rocco, nine, with ex-husband Guy Ritchie, as well as her adopted children David Banda and Mercy James, cope well with having a superstar mom. And she's positive the good points about her celebrity status outweigh the bad.
She tells British TV show GMTV, "Since I don't know what that (a normal life) means, I don't know if they'd rather have that. Anyways they don't have a choice, they're stuck with the mother they have and I think they realize there are pluses and minuses to it. I think sometimes they'd like to walk down the street and just feel like normal kids and that happens, and other times, you know, they get great bonuses and perks out of being my children and they know it and they're very grateful and appreciative for it."
"I think they're pretty balanced in terms of how they view fame and celebrity and things like that. I think it took them a while to adjust but they're okay."
