Invited in the show “It feels good” on Europe 1, the singer Hoshi returned to the violent assaults she suffered in her youth.
During the world day against homophobia, transphobia and biphobia, this Monday, May 17, 2021, the singer Hoshi recalled at the microphone of Europe 1 the lesbophobic attacks of which she was the victim in her youth. “I was assaulted twice, when I was young, in my small town in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines. I was busted on the ground, she declared to Anne Roumanoff in the program “It feels good”. First by a girl from my college who thought I looked lesbian. And the second time by one of her friends who left me for dead in front of my grandmother’s. ” At the time, Hoshi had filed a complaint. However, a big disappointment for the future artist. “She got a reminder of the law. So it didn’t help, she regretted. And besides, I ran into her every day. ” A disappointment that she was able to put into perspective: “I told myself that I wasn’t going to start fighting every time I met people who didn’t want me, and that I was going to do it to music.”
