I'll bet if you ask them to include a picture of Alizee packaging your product for a little extra fee, they'd do it.

It's funny how I'm totally in the same boat with Ray...

I cannot seem to think anything about this danceschool. Just like Jenny posted months ago I rather see her singing then dancing, but that dream has already crumbled in the past 5-6 years.

I do not feel anything anymore for Alizée. I've spend 17 years as a great fan, but lately the only song I'm able to handle is Alcaline... I haven't heard Gourmandises in years...

They are not at an end, but rather entering a new phase. She has gone through them before.

When they came up with this great idea to start a dance school, do you think they understood they were going to be working with dance partners who barely came up to their crotch? For this Alizee gave up fame and fortune? I'm suffering traumas of withdrawal. I suppose this is better than the glamorous life of being on the road earning next to nothing.

Perhaps it is not all glamour in the showbiz world, seeing what is currently going on in Hollywood.
Could be that she also had some bad experiences.
She told also in an interview, where someone from a french band she was working with at that time (2004), bragged he would be able to seduce her. And this was making the rounds even to her family, and then she stopped the cooperation.

In this interview she talks about that episode:

Perhaps she is glad to be out of this for a while. And as she said in the recent interview, that she can always get back to song later.

Although what we see on the stage is glamorous, what happens off stage can be pretty shabby. I'm sure Alizee has been sexually harassed many times, not only by other entertainers and corporate executives but even by her fans.

I suspect she is possibly more sensitive to insults than most people. There is a photo of her sitting in the Sony waiting room before they canceled her contract.
She looks extremely downtrodden. Unfortunately, I never saved that photo. I suspect one of Sony's executives insulted her singing talent, and that is what led to her boycott of further recordings. We know how stubborn she is. Perhaps she has lost confidence in her singing talent. On the other hand, her experiences dancing with Gregorie have run like a fairy tale, so that side of her life has been a phenomenal success. How long that will last is hard to say.

She only has one life and must navigate that according to her will. I don't begrudge her decision to leave the business, but I do mourn her loss.
