PIC: Madonna's Daughter Mercy Rocks Out in Tutu, Ballet Slippers!
Madonna's youngest child, daughter Mercy James, paid tribute to her mommy's dancer roots during an NYC outing on Thursday -- sporting a pink tutu, tights, and ballet slippers!
Just like her fashion-forward mother, Mercy, 4, put an edgy twist on the ballerina ensemble, topping it with a military-style jacket, white scarf and white hat.
The reason for Mercy's festive gear? She and Madonna, 51, were en route to a birthday party. But Madonna has certainly worn tutus, too: before she became a music superstar, she briefly attended the University of Michigan in the mid 1970s on a dance scholarship.
A Malawi court granted the pop star's request to adopt Chifundo "Mercy" James in June 2009. Mercy is the second Malawi tyke to join Madonna's family: David Banda, 5, was formally adopted in 2008. The little ones have two older siblings born to Madonna: Lourdes, 13, and Rocco, 9.
