Celebrity Global Warming: Selling Madonna’s Daughter Lourdes

by | 5th, June 2008

RADAR magazine has details of a spoof conversation between an agency trying to drum up interest in a global warming awareness book for kidzzzz by Lourdes Ciccone, jobbing daughter to Madonna.

I’m an entertainment agent at ICM. I work with Angela Becker, who’s one of Madonna’s managers. We’re trying to shop around ideas for a book and gauge initial interest.

Oh, wow! Yeah.

Her daughter, Lourdes, has written an essay that Madonna’s interested in turning into an illustrated book. It’s an essay for school on global warming—she’s in fifth grade now. It’s basically tips on global warming for kids. Madonna read it, and her teacher loved it, and we’re thinking it could make a good illustrated book for kids.

Okay.

I haven’t seen the essay myself, but they gave me some bullet points to run through with you to see if it might be a possible idea. Basic tips like “bike whenever possible, don’t take car services.” I guess it’s more for upscale kids and how they can reduce global-warming footprints.

Is she open to brainstorming different ideas for a global-warming book?

We could certainly talk to her. She’s a good kid. You’ll see by these bullet points that she’s had a very sheltered upbringing. The third bullet point she has for me is, “Plant as many trees as possible around your home and estates.” I could see tailoring that to saying, “Plant trees in your neighborhood,” for instance.

Uh-huh.

She also says, “Ask your parents to make your homes solar-powered.” She uses the plural homes, but I could see her saying, “Have them make your home solar-powered.”

Okay.
