Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon has said that she is 'cursed' by her sexuality and that she's 'painfully straight'.
The 26-year-old singer, dancer and model is making a name for herself in the industry, following in her mum's footsteps.
She already has her own stage name, too. (If you want to check out her stuff, you can find her under the name 'Lolahol'.)
But just because you're Madonna's eldest daughter doesn't mean there aren't difficulties along the way.
For example, one of the main burdens in her life is one that many of us face: boys.
"I would say my biggest sin is liking boys," she told The Face.
"It’s such a curse. If you can avoid it - men or boys in general - I would, because what a distraction."
Lourdes advised that 'if you want to be focused on something' the number one tactic is to 'avoid boys at all costs'.
Later, she added that she, devastatingly, isn't attracted to girls like she is boys.
"I’m painfully straight, it’s terrible," she said.
"I wish it wasn’t so, but unfortunately these are the cards I’ve been dealt. I am cursed, plagued with liking these men."
Elsewhere in the interview, she opened up about what it was like to have the 'Like A Prayer' singer as a mum and actor and fitness trainer Carlos Leon as a dad.
Carlos and Madonna had dated for two years, welcoming Lourdes together in 1996 before going their separate ways the following year.
Despite her parents' rockstar lifestyle, Lourdes sounds like she had a relatively normal upbringing - as normal as it can be.
"I feel like I was so well-behaved," she mused.
"But I don’t know, maybe my mom would say otherwise. I feel like I would have gotten spanked if I wasn’t well-behaved.
"Manners were very important to my family growing up."
Asked if she was ever brave enough to sneak out of her house past curfew, she replied: "Oh, hell no. I would sneak up to the roof to smoke a spliff, but I wouldn’t sneak out... There was no curfew to be had because there was no going out."
Eventually, it was her dad Carlos who let her socialise on weekends, but she admitted that she didn't brave the club until she got a bit older.
"My dad would let me go hang out with my friends sometimes on the weekends, but I really wouldn’t consider that going out," she said.
"I never went to a club until I was 19, 20 years old. I was in Michigan for a year, then I came back to New York, and that’s when I started to step out."
