For the Queen of Pop, Madonna, true happiness isn’t just found in the spotlight; it’s in the shared moments with her six kids. In a recent interview with W. Magazine, the material girl opened up about sharing the stage with her children during her The Celebration tour.

“When I go on tour, nothing brings me more happiness than to know we are all working on the same show, creating the magic together,” the “Papa Don’t Preach” singer said in her interview. “It would be boring if they were just traveling from hotel to hotel, and occasionally coming to watch the show.”


“Of course, I am their mother so sometimes we get on each other’s nerves. We are a family of artists but we are also a family, and that’s what happens.”

In the interview, Madonna was asked about how she felt when her daughter, Mercy James, joined her onstage during her NYC concert and delighted the audience with Chopin before breaking into a rendition of the singer’s 1992 hit, “Bad Girl”.

The “La Isla Bonita” singer described the moment as a “juxtaposition” of all that is Mercy James.

“I saw a strange, poetic juxtaposition of hedonism and exploration emerging into the light of Mercy, sitting stoically at her grand piano playing Chopin as she beckoned me towards her, making me think about the choices I have made in my life.”

Madonna continued, “Singing ‘Bad Girl; was kind of my confession to her, and I felt we had an unspoken understanding of what was happening.”

Later in the interview, the 65-year-old talked about the moment when her son, David Banda, sung with her and played background guitar as a part of the performance for her 2003 hit, “Mother and Father.”

“’Mother and Father’ is one of my favorite moments in the show because it gave me a chance to not only honor my mother and her memory but also to honor David’s mother and her memory,” Madonna explained to the outlet. “He has always wanted to sing and play guitar. He loves being on stage—this is nothing new. Much of the show is about motherhood, family, and the importance of that in my artistic life.”

And, let’s not forget the moment that completely stole the show in London when her 11-year-old daughter, Estere, took the spotlight and left everyone in awe with her “Vogue”-moment and death drop.

Of course, wherever her twin goes, Stella is sure to follow! And by the looks of an image that Madonna shared in her Instagram stories, it looks like these two have found the perfect way to take a break from The Celebration tour.
