According to New York Post gossip column Page Six, Madonna sneaked in through a private entrance sporting black Henry Kissinger-like frames, red lipstick and a black blazer which made her look like a hot grad-school teacher.
It was recently revealed that Madge — who is worth hundreds of millions of dollars — is making Lourdes, 13, do odd jobs to pay for her new mobile phone.
“Madonna will make her run errands or tidy her room,” a source told Britain’s Sunday Mirror newspaper.
“She always tries to teach her about the value of money and how important it is to earn things as it makes you appreciate them more.”

Salma Hayek thinks Madonna would still look good in a g-string.
The Mexican actress made the comment while promoting The Cat's Meow with Antonio Banderas in Cannes. In an interview with US TV host Meredith Vieira the Today Show presenter asked: 'You've been speaking a lot of Spanish I can't understand, what have you been saying?'
Salma, 44, replied: 'There was a lady wearing a g-string on the beach and I think after 50 you should not wear a g-string on the beach.'
The Frida actress later retracted her statement and said: 'By the way I'm sure there are some women over 50, like Madonna for example, she would be hot on that beach, but not this particular one. I take my word back, maybe if you are 60 you can still wear a g-string on the beach. If you can work it, do it.'
Salma and Antonio have already made five films together. They are currently starring in the animated prequel to Shreck, The Cat's Meow, with the cat character Puss in Boots.
'Antonio worked very hard to create his character, I just show up and meow,' joked Salma.
I COULD wring the neck of my old pal Madonna. She looked spectacular at the Alexander McQueen tribute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art the other evening. The iconic star wore a gorgeous blue gown that fit her like a glove and was in every way suitable to her alluring maturity and her soon-to-be lauded efforts as the director of "W.E."
But what did M have to say when asked how she felt? "I feel fat in this dress!" she said. I'm sure designer Stella McCartney loved that!
La Ciccone looked in fact, healthy, trim, but rounded in all the right places. She even cut her hair a few inches which makes a big (positive) difference.
I wish she'd stop this foolishness. If she gained twenty pounds she wouldn't be fat. It's okay to be a little voluptuous.
Indeed, I caught Madonna and Warren Beatty in their 1990 film "Dick Tracy" the other night. He insisted she put on weight. She did (they were romancing at the time) and she has rarely looked better onscreen. And she's terrif in that movie too. My favorite scene is when Warren (as Dick) goes backstage to visit M (cabaret singer Breathless Mahoney) whose gangster lover, Lips, has just been killed.
"No tears for Lips?" asks Tracy
"I'm wearing black underwear."
"I wonder whose side you're on" Tracy presses.
""The side I'm always on," replies Breathless, "Mine!"
I recall when I saw this movie at an early screening, the audience went wild over that line; it seemed to confirm and conform to her public image — the ruthless, ambitious, sexually predatory diva.
She was some of that, but less than she led people to believe. She's quite different now. But she still has a fine, sane, disregard for public opinion. And she's still much nicer than she lets on.

Madonna has reportedly been acting as the "perfect mentor" to daughter Lourdes, who is set to continue her mother's pop legacy.
The 52-year-old music icon has teamed up with 14-year-old daughter Lourdes on a track called It's So Cool, which was first recorded eight years ago, but the version featuring the teen's vocals was never released. The song was reworked at a New York studio in February so apparently the star is now considering whether to feature it on her next album, or use it on the soundtrack to her film about US socialite Wallis Simpson.
"Madonna hopes Lourdes will step into her shoes and become one of the biggest female artists in the world," a source told British newspaper The Sun.
"She's the perfect mentor for her daughter and is keen to assist her first steps into the industry."
Many record companies are eager to sign Lourdes, and it is believed she has inherited her mother's musical gift. Those close to the teen say she also shares her mother's trademark charisma and feisty attitude.
"Lourdes has a great voice and plenty of character - like her mom," added the source.--
