Madonna’s seven-year-old daughter, Lourdes, made her first charity appearance at a children’s hospital in France.
According to The Sun, Lourdes visited the hospital and read aloud from her mother’s best selling book “The English Roses”. Children were later handed out free copies of the book.
“She was great. She’s a fabulous reader. There were a lot of people there but not a huge entourage for Lourdes. We gave her a present – a bravery bead necklace that we give to children undergoing treatment. She loved it and put it right on,” an onlooker was quoted as saying.

Kabbalah devotee Madonna is busy reviewing potential Hebrew names for husband Guy Ritchie.
The Like a Virgin singer recently changed her name to Esther as part of her conversion to the mystical offshoot of Judaism, and wants Ritchie to follow her lead.
An insider says, “Madonna wants Guy to convert religiously as much as she has. It doesn’t make sense if she’s fully involved and her family isn’t.”

Hundreds of Slane residents will have to apply for police passes to get around the village when music superstar Madonna comes to visit next month.
The Garda have announced there will be checkpoints all around the quiet Co Meath village on the day before the huge concert on Sunday, August 29, and only those residents with passes will be allowed through.
Garda chief Michael Flanagan also warned Madonna fans that there is no need or reason to travel early as all the local accommodation has been fully booked, there are no camping facilities available and “there will be nothing for them to do in Slane and we would ask them not to come near it”.
The massive gig at Slane Castle is the first to be held on a Sunday for over 20 years and while many residents of the villages signed a petition objecting to it, Meath County Council has given MCD Promotions a licence for it, albeit with some stringent conditions.
Although it is thought that the first act will not appear until late in the afternoon, the controversial queen of pop has to be off stage by no later than 10.30pm, with the 80,000 revellers out of the venue by midnight.
The council has also demanded that the promoters lodge an Event Management Plan no later than two weeks before the concert, a plan that must take account of the extra traffic, necessary toilet facilities and the impact on the local environment.
Another aspect which must be finalised with the Garda is the totally free movement of people who are attending Mass or other religious services on the Sunday morning.
