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 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!
