Alizée - Moi... Lolita (Long Version) ft. Dido (2000)

The story of a rousing French hit hailing from the 2000s....

One Hit Story: Alizée - Moi... Lolita

At the beginning of the noughties Alizée won the hearts of millions of listeners with the hit "Moi... Lolita"! Since childhood, the girl was fond of singing and music, and her main dream was to perform on stage. And now, meeting Milen Farmer changed the life of the young but certainly talented Frenchwoman! Thanks to this song, 16-year-old Alizée became the favourite of a whole generation...

History of Creation

The story dates back to 1999. It was then that Alizée took part in the talent show Graines de star. Whether it was luck or fate itself, the young performer was spotted by Mylène Farmer and Laurent Boutonne. Alizée was soon invited to Paris for an audition. Having performed a song that would soon become a timeless hit, the girl made a huge impression on Milen and Laurent... The role of "Lolita" went to her.

And so, a few months later, "Moi... Lolita" was released! The song played an important role in shaping the image of Alizée as the seductive character of Lolita. The song, inspired by Nabokov's novel, is sung on behalf of a young girl who appeals to mature men. Alize herself describes the composition in a very innocent way:

"Lolita is a teenage girl who appeals to boys...only much older than herself."

The ambiguity of the song seduces the whole French public: like a real teenage girl, Alizée has a very light and simple-minded image! But the ambiguous lyrics in the song refer to something completely different, something more mature....

Achievements

The song peaked at number two in France and remained in the top five for 24 consecutive weeks! The single achieved gold status two months after its release. In total, more than 1,282,000 copies were sold, making "Moi... Lolita" the best-selling single in France.

Career after...

Alizée's first album "Gourmandises" sold over 4 million copies worldwide! In 2001, the singer won the NRJ Music Award. The trio Alizée / Mylene / Laurent works harmoniously! In one of the interviews the girl even called Farmer her "big sister"! But after the release of the second album, there was a breakup between them... Many factors led to this, in particular disagreements and the teenage crisis of the young star....

Alizée was already managing herself as a musical project on her own at the age of 18. She experimented a lot, but still remained the favourite of millions....

With gorgeous albums, tours all over the world, shows and prestigious awards under her belt, Alizée is no longer the same girl the world met in 2000. However, she doesn't forget her past... So, she's trying her hand at being a mentor! Alizee says:

"There are encounters that turn our lives upside down... This encounter happened to me 20 years ago. Thank you Milene..."
