The “Material Girl” wasn’t kidding. In May, the duo of mother and son were presented with Adidas brand clothes at an evening of boxing at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
But David inherited more from his mother than just her fashion sense. The “Like a Virgin” creator told Fallon that her son, whom he adopted in 2006is working on his own music.
“He’s going to end up being one of your guests,” the 63-year-old gushed about Banda, to which she replied that “has everything” it takes to be a star.
