Madonna’s son David Banda tagged along with his pop icon mother to the 56th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
David Banda Accompanies Madonna At Grammys
As the mother-son duo walked the red carpet, they – like many of the other attendees – were asked to discuss their award show duds. "We're both working the Ralph Lauren angle," Madonna told Ryan Seacrest. As it happens, their matching black suits were from the Ralph Lauren’s Spring 2014 Collection.
"For this look, I followed his lead,” Madonna told Seacrest. “He dressed me tonight. He wanted me to dress like him, so I obeyed him."
Banda wore a chic black tux that was paired with a fedora and shiny black and white spats. Madonna opted for a double-breasted suit jacket, a flared pant and a wide-brimmed hat. She also sported a single glittery glove, posed with a black cane, and rocked a sparkling gold grill over her teeth.
Banda Hopes For A Grill
"Yeah, I'm grillin'. It pisses everybody off when I wear my grill, so that's why I wear it," she said on the red carpet. "[I wear it] when it matches my outfit. When I don't have to eat. Actually, I've learned to eat with my grill in.”
Banda had hoped that he’d match his mom in the grill department as well, but he’s going to have to wait to his upcoming birthday.
"She said she'd get me grills for this birthday," Banda told Seacrest. Madonna interjected, and said, "I know, but we haven't had time. We have to go to the dentist to get a mold!"
Madonna posted a picture of her and her son on Instagram with the caption, “Pimpin the red carpet with Banda! #PerfectDate.”
Later on in the night, Banda got to see his mother make history on the Grammy stage when she sang her 1985 hit “Open Your Heart” after Queen Latifa married 33 gay and straight couples to the tune of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ marriage equality anthem “Same Love.”
