When Lourdes, 18, left for the University of Michigan, it was "an absolutely devastating experience, I have to say," the Material Girl, 56, says Tuesday in an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
She'd been warned, but she didn't really believe how bad it would be.

Who's that girl? In your L.A. spinning class?
Yep, that was Madonna, who got her Grammy weekend cardio in at Cycle House in West Hollywood.
The famously fit singer and her daughter Lourdes Leon, 17, showed up together for a spin class on Friday. The pop icon, 55, loved the workout so much that she returned Saturday for a second class.

Looks like Lourdes Leon is college bound!
Madonna caused quite a stir on campus when she visited the University of Michigan with her daughter on Wednesday.
"There was a lot of excitement," Lindsey Meekhof, a vocal performance senior there, tells PEOPLE.
"[Madonna's] daughter was learning about our musical theater program," Meekhof added. "Someone announced to my choir class Madonna was in the building, and choir wasn't productive anymore after that."
