Lola Consuelos may be the daughter of actor and talk show host Kelly Ripa, but she’s also made it clear that she wants to succeed in a more normal way. “If I take one [social media break]because I’ve been banned from posting anything of these monsters I’ve raised,” the Live with Kelly and Ryan host joked (via People) about her children — who she shares with husband Mark Consuelos — not wanting even though Ripa had fun set on sharing her daughter’s life milestones, like learning to drive and prom, she also wanted Lola to have a normal life, especially when it came to college.
“College is where you start to establish yourself as an independent person,” Ripa told Ryan Seacrest during an On Air With Ryan Seacrest interview in 2019. She mentioned how she was a little nervous about her Sending children to a school that was so close to home, hoping they wouldn’t come home often. “You have to figure out how to grow up,” she said. “That’s when you find out.”
Lola is currently in the Class of 2023 at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, per Distractify. She is working towards earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Recorded Music from the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music. And it seems her studies have paid off as she has released her first single.
Lola Consuelos publishes Paranoia Silverlining
On August 3, Lola Consuelos posted a TikTok teasing her first single. She announced that the new song would be released on August 9th via Us Weekly. Her mother, Kelly Ripa, shared her support post, “6 DAYS UNTIL LOLA’S FIRST SINGLE IS OUT,” on her Instagram Stories. The 21-year-old then released “Paranoia Silverlining,” which stars singer JoJo.
“I’ve been making music since I was 14 and I’ve never really had anything that I thought was legitimate enough to write about or anything that spoke to me,” Lola told People. She mentioned that she now wants to “get the ball rolling” in her music career as she has a lot of experience to write with.
Ripa is proud of her daughter. Though she admitted Lola jokingly blocked her on Instagram and school made it harder for Ripa to post about her daughter, she still has her proud mommy moments. “We don’t have any musical talent between the three of us,” the talk show host told Access Hollywood in July of her husband and two sons. “But [Lola] definitely has all the talent for all of us so I think that’s in her future.” We wish Lola the best of luck in the rest of her career as this is just the beginning.
