Madonna's son 'mortified' by mum's topless photoshoot

Madonna's teenage son is said to be "mortified" by her recent topless photoshoot.

The 56-year-old singer recently bared her breasts in Interview magazine and 14-year-old Rocco - her child with ex-husband Guy Ritchie - is said to be incredibly embarrassed by the pictures.

A source said: "Rocco is mortified that his mum is still doing topless photo shoots."

However, the photos were given the seal of approval by Madonna's 18-year-old daughter Lourdes, who thinks the pictures of her mother - who also has adopted kids David and Mercy, both nine - are empowering.

The source told Heat magazine: "Lola thinks it's rad that her mom flaunts her stuff. She sees it as being all about feminism and celebrating strong women and the female form.

"She is trying to convince Madonna to come and speak at one of her college lectures, covering women's evolving image in pop culture.

"Lola couldn't be prouder and she tells Rocco to chill out."

In her accompanying interview for the pictures, Madonna revealed she had tried "every drug" at least once but found her experiences dissatisfying.

She said: "I mean, I tried everything once, but as soon as I was high, I spent my time drinking tons of water to get it out of my system.

"As soon as I was high, I was obsessed with flushing it out of me. I was like: 'OK, I'm done now'."
