I was minding my own thing, browsing Google Images using the “Search by image” feature. Yeah, I found a photo of someone who messaged me in a forum board that you have to pay their premium subscription fee to read messages. And no, it’s not what you think. LOL!
Anyway, I clicked on a similar face and I landed in on a wallpaper site that full of this girl with the page title “Album Alizee French singer beautiful girl HD Wallpapers.” More curious, I did a generic Google search.
Her full name is Alizée Jacotey and yes, she is a French singer as well as a dancer and voice actress. She was born on August 21, 1984 in a quaint island in the Mediterranean Sea belonging to France known as Corsica. Hey! The French emperor Napoléon was born in 1769 in Corsica but they’re not related.
Lili, as Alizée was known in her youth, enrolled in Ajaccio’s Ecole de Danse Monique Mufraggi dance school when she was five and trained there until she was fifteen. Then, she appeared on the TV talent show Graines de Star, broadcast on Métropole 6, performing the song “Waiting for Tonight” by Jennifer Lopez and “Ma Prière”(a single released by Axelle Red in 1997). She went on to win the Meilleure Graine award for most promising young singing star of tomorrow.
It was at the TV talent show that two veteran songwriters discovered her and arranged her debut single Moi… Lolita which defined Alizée in the early years of her career. The single was from her debut album, Gourmandises (“Delicacies”), which made Alizée the highest-selling female French singer ever.
Medal of Ajaccio says: “(Alizée is) one of the most controversial and female vocalists of the 21st century who broke into the music world at 17 years old with a worldwide success coming in the “Europop queen,” spearheaded the rise of post-millennial Europop … Alizée early on cultivated a mixture of a sweet Lolita innocence and experience that broke the bank”.
Here’s a video of Alizée’s live performance of her best-selling single in 2014.
