Jo Jacotey...Alizée...Twilight...
OK... I have been holding off on the TwiIight comparison...a little bit leery of starting a Twlight thing...but I just can not take it any longer. Black and White of Alizée by Jo Jacotey.



So Jo...you teasing or just a coincidence? Inquiring minds want to know.

"France and Italy" - John Pinette

"France & Italy" - John Pinette

Sometimes we may think we do not understand Alizée or the French...John Pinette takes us to a whole new level looking at the difference between France and Italy.

why no comments Alizee Nation

Frankly, I have no idea...

It all started with a comment from WT.
It would show up on my RSS feed but not live time on the blog.
After a few days it showed up.

About that time I was hit with some spam comments. Now I let comments open for anyone and without approval. You do have to confirm the squiggly letters.

I deleted the spam comments...

Since that time it has been not cooperating with me.
All the settings look good to go...so I changed it so the comment must be approved by me...and there you go it appears that change made it work.

I hope and I hope that answers everyones questions...no I was not doing it on purpose.

I can't help myself...I am just curious.
Australia, why am I seeing just a little blimp on the radar for visits from you?
And they all seem to be centered around the Marc Jacobs cancer t shirts... and this post showing Alizée wearing one of Marc's shirts.

Album sales trends

Great article from Billboard: "Analysis: Important Sales Trends You Need To Know"

Quoting stats from the article...

"Of the 97,751 albums released in 2009, only 12 of them sold more than one million units last year"

"Only 2,050 of 2009’s New Albums Sold Over 5,000 Units"

"Albums’ Second-Week Fade Are Getting Bigger"

"These factors combine to create a retail environment in which it is easier to get core fans’ attention but difficult to market beyond those core fans"


If this type of thing interests you then it is a great read. I know we all sit around and become record producers in our spare time deciding what Alizee should do or should be doing... read this article. It's tough out there. The music distribution industry is changing and changing so fast that what marketing strategy that worked 9 months ago is already obsolete.

So... it's easy to get core fans attention...hmmmm, I don't want to be easy...Alizée will you still respect me in the morning?

I was going to make this an Alizée Jeopardy post but spared all of you

The first half of 2010 is coming to an end, there is only one month in which we did not receive a tweet from Alizée......May.

Are you ready for this last little fact?
The last half of 2009...we only received 6 tweets from Alizée!!!


Are you prepared to log on several times a day for the next half year to see 6 tweets?

Blue: The History of Color

I just could not help myself. The previous post we covered stripes and referenced Michel Pastoureau's book "The Devil's Cloth: The History of Stripes". It just so happens that Michel Pastoureau also wrote the book "Blue. The History of Color"


which, of course, brings me to....


I like blue...it works for me...

Alizée, time for a little apple talk?

Alizée, let's take a break from music, fashion and internet strategy for moment.

I know you are all over Apple and Mac's so I value your opinion...

Did you get an Ipad and if so what do you like about it?
If you did not there must be a reason.

Have you placed your order for the Iphone 4 already?

Work that into some interview for us :)

The conference starts at 7 PM Paris time.

Rumors of the day...
New Iphone
Apple TV device
Multi Touch trackpad
Cloud based music services...

This is where Twitter can really be a help and not just some area for useless dribble...

Alizée's aspirations

I was listening to an interview of Katy Perry, she said...after a short break it was time to be a pop star again.

Pop Star...that's it isn't it. Nothing at all wrong with it if that is what you strive to be.

Then others say they don't want to be pop stars
Check out this article about Miley Cyrus
"Miley Cyrus can't believe she's making mainstream music for a living -- because she listens to "zero pop music."

The "Hannah Montana" star has strong country roots through her "Achy Breaky Heart" hit maker dad, Billy Ray, and despite releasing three pop-orientated records to date, the star is not a fan of the genre.

And Cyrus insists she would have branded herself a "sellout" if she had known the direction her career would take when she was younger.

She tells Billboard magazine, "I listen to zero pop music, which is really weird for someone who makes pop music. My 13-year-old self would have beaten up my 17-year-old self because she would be like, 'You're a sellout!'"

However, the singer refuses to believe her songs are as "super shallow" as her pop contemporaries.

She adds, "But that's not what it is. It's not dance music that's just about, 'Ooh, I'm in the club and everyone's looking at me'. It means something. I'm not just sitting here trying to sell glitz and glamour ... because no one lives that life. A lot of pop songs are super shallow, but this music isn't."


Alizée is now doing the same type of music that she enjoys listening to. From the RFI Musique interview..."Today, I listen to my latest album on my iPod, in my car. It’s the first time I’ve done that in the ten years of my career"

But it's not easy..."Une enfant du siècle is still a pop album. The Alizée “brand” is popular and I don’t want to lose that. I found it more interesting to blend the two worlds, without having to change my voice. I wanted to break down that silly idea of the mainstream on one side and the elite trendy stuff on the other"

You have to admire Alizée's aspirations.

Alizée Concert

"News" via Popheart regarding an upcoming concert tour for Alizée.

Shanghai
Latin America
France

Summer 2010

France...of course, this is just a natural.
Latin America...Mexico...no country deserves it more. They are rabid Alizée fans.
Now that leads us to Shanghai. I really don't want to over analyze it, I am just glad for it. What I will say is I think it will be difficult to get any type of media coverage, even phone video youtubes out of Shanghai.

Will any of the "Team Alizée" be involved? Will Chateau Marmont be touring too? How big the concerts or how small...a lot to look forward to.
