RIP Whitney Houston

Today, my mom called me around 7am a couple of time of course I was sleeping at that time like every Sunday. Then I started to realise and what if something bad happened. So, I called her back in France. She answered and told me in a very low voice full of sadness that Whitney has died!

I was shocked and she sounded like it too (actually there’s no word to describe how bad I could felt she was, I know more than any member of my family what kind of relationship my mother had with Whitney’s songs)! I didn’t even asked how because I have my thoughts .

As you may have guessed, my mom is one of Whitney Houston’s biggest fan and she could see The Bodyguard 1000 times a month and listen to her singles all day and night. I felt so sorry for my mom and tried to find the best words to console her.

Yes, Whitney is dead today and French people will always  remember her first trip in France and when she met for the first time our Gainsbourg. What a shock for the young Whitney! LOL

“Sacré Gainsbourg” never afraid to speak up his mind, that is a French attitude ;-)!

Enjoy this video!

Whitney looked splendid at that time and we would like to remember her like this. Whitney, we will always love you. Rest in peace ❤

A dedication for my mum Emilie, love you too mummy. I miss you! ❤

Fun and politics: a bimbo for President?

As you probably know, the French elections are coming up soon. Our country has been upset by rebounds all throughout 2011 and now France is speaking around about two candidates: Sarkozy and Holland and sometimes a third one: Marine Le Pen.

But our political landscape is marked by other personalities who are keen to apply for the most difficult French job of the century: PRESIDENT OF THE FRANCE.

And all this is very funny when you see what they present to us. I do not know and I do not recall seeing this kind of funny characters during the last British elections. This is why J’ADORE my France, Enjoy!

Her moto: “For a hedonism France,” whispered the slogan of the candidate’s “party of fun,” Cindy Lee (her stage name) presents herself as an “artist professional dancer” that is to say a stripper.  She’s not new to the French political landscape, she’s already ran the race for the Elysee for three times. In addition to an arsenal of anti-crisis measures, the platinum blonde offers a society based on “well-being and sexuality for all.” An enticing program she has tried to present in 2002 and 2007. But Cindy Lee had failed to glean the 500 referrals necessary to be officially in the “electable”.

The Raelian Rasta with his 69 proposals, Rasta President recites measures to make France more vile and enter the era of “Paradigm”: “a political system similar to communism, but without the proletariat. Rasta President calls himself XX invokes the minimum wage for members of government, the right to vote from the age of 6 years, the legalisation of cannabis, 100% unemployment (its slogan: “Work less, live better”), the legalisation of polygamy and so on… On its website, the man of thirty years shows the composition of his government if you’re curious (like me) have a look at his website on: http://www.rastapresident.com/

Ladies and Gentlemen, big fun to introduce the veiled woman. Her name is Kenza Drider, she is 32 and she also wants to be the next French president. Have you guessed the Distinctive sign? She wears the niqab and wishes to compete in the election to obtain the annulation of the “veil law”.

She had launched her candidacy in Meaux (Parisian suburb, located in the south of Paris) and amusingly the mayor there is Jean-Francois Cope, the fountainhead of the project to ban the veil. Kenza Drider offers retirement at age 60 for women, against 65 men. She also wants to close all bars, restaurants and nightclubs selling alcohol and forbid mini skirts and dresses. Poor me L I guess if she’s elected I would have to ask for a British passport…

Kenza, XX or Cindy so different but so witty… They are not the only one to have fun every four years with crazy economic or political propositions… But I found these three quite interesting and hilarious. Who do you prefer? I’ll be curious to know (I found XX quite mental)… XoXo
