Alizée MySpace August 31, 2008
Flash back, what were we doing 3 years ago... today
Les lolita finissent toujours par s'émanciper.A 23 ans, Alizée devient une chanteuse qui ressemble mieux à la femme qu'elle est devenue.Sans renier une aura pop gravée dans la mémoire collective, son nouvel album s'évade vers d'autres rencontres, d'autres émotions en phase avec une vitalité créative qui n'a rien de celle d'une marionnette. Quand on parle d'Alizée avec ceux qui la côtoient, tous évoquent un "truc rare", un "je ne sais quoi" rayonnant d'une personnalité touchée par la grâce.Il en fallait sans doute pour qu'une vocation s'impose à elle, presque contre son gré. A 14 ans, sur son île de beauté, l'adolescente d'Ajaccio ne rêvait pas de musique, mais de danse et de sport-étude.A peine plus d'un an après, elle chantait sur des scènes aux quatre coins du monde, précipitée là par des circonstances qui ne devaient pas tout au hasard. Inscrite par une copine pour le casting de l'émission Graines de star, elle y va sans y croire, passe la sélection, puis tape dans l'oeil de Mylène Farmer qui lui propose un autre bout d'essai.L'évidence de l'incarnation est telle, que Moi...Lolita sort quelques semaines plus tard, pour un des succès les plus saisissants de l'histoire de la chanson.Tube à la carrière internationale, vendu à plus de 2,5 millions d'exemplaires, le single sera rapidement suivi d'un premier album, Gourmandises, et d'autres hits. Le tourbillon de la réussite est celui d'un apprentissage mené tambour battant, sous la férule du duo Mylène Farmer-Laurent Boutonnat.Alizée prend le temps de perfectionner son chant, de mieux maîtriser ses prestations scéniques( à l'Olympia, au Zénith...).En 2003, un second opus, Mes courants électriques, prolonge cette collaboration.Riche de l'apport artistique et professionnel transmis par ses producteurs, Alizée pouvait être prête à tenter d'autres mots et musiques. Une longue pause permettra d'assimiler l'effervescence de ces premières années, de s'enrichir du rythme de la vie quotidienne et de la maternité, de formuler enfin les désirs à venir.La complicité de son compagnon, Jeremy Chatelain, aidera Alizée à trouver sa voie.Révélé, comme elle en enfant de la télé, ce rescapé de la star ac' échappe lui aussi au formatage des clichés.Multi-instrumentiste étonnamment précoce, nourri jusqu'à l'obsession de culture rock et hip hop (ce natif du 91 participait à l'âge de 13 ans au championnat de France de DJ), Jérémy s'est passionné pour le son au point de se fabriquer son propre studio d'enregistrement. Ensemble, ils réfléchiront à la meilleure façon de transcrire en climats, mélodies et textes l'Alizée d'aujourd'hui.Leurs échanges mettent à plats les coups de coeur et découvertes musicales qui peuvent donner des pistes.Une liste de noms de collaborations idéaux finit aussi par voir le jour: Jean Fauque, Oxmo Puccino , Daniel Darc, Bertrand Burgalat.Surprise, tous acceptent de jouer le jeu... Fauque s'est senti inspiré par la sensualité de la chanteuse (Mon taxi driver), par ses restes d'innocence (Psychédélices), ses débuts de gravité (Idéaliser), ou par son énergie espiègle, boostée par l'électro rock (Mademoiselle Juliette). Un rappeur, Oxmo Puccino."Pour moi, il est un des vrais poètes du hip hop français" souligne Alizée, " un de ceux qui possèdent le plus grand esprit d'ouverture".Dans Décollage, un des deux titres (avec Par les paupières) écrits par Oxmo,Alizée teste pour la première fois son flow sur une rythmique distillé par Kore, pointure de la production hip hop-r'n'b.Digne des plus gros son américains, le morceau virevolte du côté de Gwen stefani,tout en s'électrisant d'un sex-appeal typiquement "frenchie". Parmi les disques qui ont le plus tourné, ces dernières années, sur la platine d'Alizée, l'album Crève coeur de Daniel Darc.En plein enregistrement de son nouveau disque, l'ancien chanteur de Taxi-Girl et son compositeur Frédérick Lo, ont signé pour la jeune égérie pop deux pépites_Never More et Lonely Liste_, en parfait équilibre entre mélancolie et légèreté. "Cette collaboration nous a été très bénéfique" insiste Frédérick Lo, "idéale pour nous rappeler que des chansons fraîches peuvent avoir du sens.Un peu comme Lio au début des années 1980, Alizée gomme la frontière entre le rock et la variété". Cette frontière Bertrand Burgalat l'a souvent brouillé dans le passé.Sur un texte de Jean Fauque,L'effet, consacré à l'émerveillement d'une mère pour sa fille, le dandy rétro-futuriste a brodé une dentelle d'harmonies devant autant à Gainsbourg qu'aux Beach Boys."J'ai adoré sa façon de jouer et de me diriger"."J'aime composer des mélodies parfois difficiles à chanter" admet Burgalat, "j'ai été surpris par la façon dont Alizée s'y est vite adaptée". A la production, Jeremy a préservé l'impact pop de la demoiselle, sa capacité à charmer dans le sautillement synthétique et les mélodies acidulées.Il a aussi élargi le registre de sa compagne en le nourrissant de groove plus contemporains, de guitares plus incisives, de sons inspirés par leur goût commun pour des artistes comme les Killers, Cure, les Neptunes, Matmos, ou même Bjork. Plus libre, plus épanouie, la chanteuse n'a jamais autant imprimé sa personnalité.Un vent nouveau souffle sur Alizée.

You entered: Alizee Jaoctey
There are 13 letters in your name.
Those 13 letters total to 56
There are 7 vowels and 6 consonants in your name.
Your number is: 11
The characteristics of #11 are: High spiritual plane, intuitive, illumination, idealist, a dreamer.
The expression or destiny for #11:
Your Expression number is 11. The number 11 is the first of the master numbers. It is associated with idealistic concepts and rather spiritual issues. Accordingly, it is a number with potentials that are somewhat more difficult to live up to. You have the capacity to be inspirational, and the ability to lead merely by your own example. An inborn inner strength and awareness can make you an excellent teacher, social worker, philosopher, or advisor. No matter what area of work you pursue, you are very aware and sensitive to the highest sense of your environment. Your intuition is very strong; in fact, many psychic people and those involved in occult studies have the number 11 expression. You possess a good mind with keen analytical ability. Because of this you can probably succeed in most lines of work, however, you will do better and be happier outside of the business world. Oddly enough, even here you generally succeed, owing to your often original and unusual approach. Nonetheless, you are more content working with your ideals, rather than dollars and cents.
The positive aspect of the number 11 expression is an always idealistic attitude. Your thinking is long term, and you are able to grasp the far-reaching effects of actions and plans. You are disappointed by the shortsighted views of many of your contemporaries. You are deeply concerned and supportive of art, music, or of beauty in any form.
The negative attitudes associated with the number 11 expression include a continuous sense of nervous tension; you may be too sensitive and temperamental. You tend to dream a lot and may be more of a dreamer than a doer. Fantasy and reality sometimes become intermingled and you are sometimes very impractical. You tend to want to spread the illumination of your knowledge to others irrespective of their desire or need.
Your Soul Urge number is: 5
A Soul Urge number of 5 means:
The 5 soul urge or motivation would like to follow a life of freedom, excitement, adventure and unexpected happening. The idea of travel and freedom to roam intrigues you. You are very much the adventurer at heart. Not particularly concerned about your future or about getting ahead, you can seem superficial and unmotivated.
In a positive sense, the energies of the number 5 make you very adaptable and versatile. You have a natural resourcefulness and enthusiasm that may mark you as a progressive with a good mind and active imagination. You seem to have a natural inclination to be a pace-setter. You are attracted to the unusual and the fast paced.
You may be overly restless and impatient at times. You may dislike the routine work that you are engaged in, and tend to jump from activity to activity, without ever finishing anything. You may have difficulty with responsibility. You don't want to be tied down to a relationship, and it may be hard to commit to one person.
Your Inner Dream number is: 6
An Inner Dream number of 6 means:
You dream of guiding and fostering the perfect family in the perfect home. You crave the devotion from offspring and a loving spouse. You picture yourself in the center of a successful domestic unit.

Alizée - pied grec
Morton's Toe (Wikipedia)
In shoe fitting it has been called the Greek foot (as opposed to the Egyptian foot, where the great toe is longer). A longer second toe has often been associated with royalty, particularly during the rule of the Ptolemaic dynasty when Egypt was under Greek rulership. It was an idealized form in Greek sculpture, and this persisted as an aesthetic standard through Roman and Renaissance periods and later (the Statue of Liberty has toes of this proportion). There are also associations found within Celtic groups. The French call it commonly pied grec (just as the Italians call it piede greco)

Alizée - iTunes Essentials
Released April 12, 2010

The auction started life with Alizée announcing it on Facebook and that it would take place on Facebook. It did indeed start out life on Facebook but then took it's natural course and migrated to ebay. I was wondering how an auction on Facebook was going to work, I kept my mouth quite not wanting to reveal exactly how ignorant I was.
The auction went on during the week raising a nice donation. I woke up Saturday morning anxious to see the results and read all the tweets... and no one had anything to say??? Alizée, the major players...everyone just quitely walked away with their hands in their pockets and no exit strategy.
That was curious.
Rumor this rumor that...
Besides everyone reposting and reposting and reposting and reposting...
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
You know.... an opinion
It's great, it's horrible, my Alizée right or wrong...
You know there are programs out there that can just repost any Alizée news...
WHAT? What do I think, good question, I'm glad you asked!
Let's say she does it... The Voice
There will be exposure. More photos for us :) we have to like that.
It could be a chance to ignite the French audience again.
It could lead to more opportunities.
Of course Alizée you will have to be entertaining in this role. It's not like your Tumblr and Twitter accounts Alizée. You will have to talk and entertain the public on a regular basis. You don't get to not say anything for 6 months. I bet The Voice would even like you to twitter more about the show... if you do it. That's not a big "uh oh" for you is it?
There can be a lot of upside, especially in France.
Down side... too reserved and private and ... the audience is not entertained. Of course just seeing you is entertaining enough for me.
Next... for you the audience, if she does The Voice...
What will this mean for the 2012 album?
A) This is part of the publicity for it and an incentive to get it out.
B) Has nothing to do with the new album and will have no affect
C) She will have no time for the new album and it will be pushed back to 2013
Remember how long UEDS took... based on that time table if it started today it would be lucky to be out in 2012, and now there may be a TV show to do. Of course who is to say it has not already been started... yes, who is to say? Can those questions be avoided on The Voice?
