Top tier fash mag Harper’s Bazaar has unveiled the theme of its September Issue: first families of music, starring Kanye West and his blessed bbs North and Saint, Bruce Springsteen and daughter Jessica, Theodora and Alexandra Richards, Billie Idol and daughter Bonnie Blue Broad, Paris Jackson, Steven and Liv Tyler, Erykah Badu and Mariah Carey with kiddies Moroccan and Monroe Cannon.
“I hope my children never lose their confidence to society,” the rapper told the magazine.
You’ll notice that West’s youngest bb Chicago is absent from the shoot presumably as the images were snapped before she was born or perhaps she was too young and ~delicate~ to be involved.
“I am especially excited about this year’s theme for ICONS because it involves family. I’m a very family-oriented person so I wanted to meet the families of some of my biggest music idols,” said creative director Carine Roitfeld. “It was amazing to see that some of the industry’s most ground breaking rockstars have a sense of tenderness with their loved ones, even if they are adults!”

Springsteen says the best advice he’s given his daughter is: “Keep your focus on what you really care about.”
Jessica says of her fam: “Family is everything to me. Whenever I have time off, the first thing I do is go home to see everyone. It’s what makes me the happiest.”
“I love being mama bear and providing support, strength, and a safe haven to my babies and loved ones, knowing that, above all else, it’s the most important job I have.” — #ChristinaAguilera Tap the link in our bio for more families that rock from our September 2018 issue. #BAZAARicons Styling by @carineroitfeld Photography by @mario_sorrenti
The iconic singer says of motherhood: “I love being mama bear and providing support, strength, and a safe haven to my babies and loved ones, knowing that, above all else, it’s the most important job I have.”
“Family is the most important thing to me,” says Carey. “My children have provided me with such joy as they’ve developed their own unique personalities. Moroccan has a knack for technology, and Monroe is really musical. They’re each other’s best friends, and I love watching them grow up.”
Lionel, who’s daughter Sofia is curiously absent, said of his children : “I wish for my kids to discover who they are and explore their passions to the fullest.”
Nicole added: “My dad and I will do anything for a laugh. If that means we’re the butt of the joke, so be it. In a nutshell, we’re desperate show ponies.”
Theodora on the Richards family: “We are a traveling band of gypsies, this bunch. With everyone’s crazy lives, it makes for great stories around the fireplace. Music, dancing, and laughter fill our home, and we make it so we’re never apart for too long.”
Alexandra on family: “Family to me is not just blood. It’s a unity of powerful love and compassion for one another; it’s about respecting and trusting one another.”
