The Material Girl? More like The Family Girl.

After first cutting out dirty segments from her show for papa's sake, Madonna has now accouned she'll cut her Confessions Tour a bit short. The reason?

The 47-year old's children start school shortly. Therefore, fans Down Under won't have a chance to see Madge belting out tunes while pinned to a cross any time soon. She's decided not to fly to Australia while Lourdes and Rocco prepare to classes.

Perhaps they can catch her on TV in a spot for H&M, however.

On her website, Madonna tried to comfort disappointed fans from Sydney:

"We looked into going from Japan to Australia and ending the show there but I have to get my kids back to school in England and they are, as you can understand, my most important priority."

The pop queen goes on to say: "I'm not retiring anytime soon and I am gonna get to Australia as soon as I can."

We believe her! We also aren't the only ones who still adore her music, as evidenced by a pollstar.com report that states the Confessions Tour is already the top-grossing tour of 2006. It's raked in over $54 million.

You go, Family Girl!

Leave her alone. She’s gonna be 16 soon and then 17 and then 18, and then she might show her knees and then what's gonna happen?

My husband and I are not planning on getting a divorce. I know Alex Rodriguez through Guy Oseary, who manages both of us. I brought my kids to a Yankee game. I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez. I have nothing to do with the state of his marriage or what spiritual path he may choose to study.
