Benjamin Biolay was present on the set of Daily this Wednesday, December 7, the opportunity for the presenter Yann Barthès to question him on his tense relationship with the two artists Michel Fugain and Michel Polnareff. A question that has not gone unnoticed.
It’s on the occasion of the reissue of his album St. Clair released six months earlier, that singer and artist Benjamin Biolay went to television sets to promote it. With the addition of six additional tracks, including a Christmas track, the singer spoke on the show Daily on TMC this Wednesday, December 7.
Benjamin Biolay, not having his tongue in his pocket, also addressed many other subjects during this interview, including his tense relationship with two other French singers, Michel Fugain and Michel Polnareff. As a reminder, the facts date back to 2008 when the author of Fais comme l’oiseau attacked several artists including Benjamin Biolay at the microphone of RTBF. To this, Benjamin Biolay sees only one reason for this hostility: “He finds me useless”.
“Michel Fugain hates me”
Yann Barthès, the presenter of the show Dailydoes not go through four paths and asks the singer the question bluntly about the relationship he has with Michel Fugain. “Michel Fugain hates me. He decided to kill me, but he won’t succeed., he confided on the set. Before adding: “The first time I heard of Michel Fugain (…), I was going to play at the Francofolies de Spa in Belgium and there was an interview with him on a giant screen. I wasn’t paying attention to what was being said, then for a moment I heard: “The worst, the worst, the real bastard, the one who talks about it, it’s Biolay”. He adds boxes and everything. And there recently, it started again. You have to stop harassing me, I understand.

He also takes the opportunity to reveal the reasons for his animosity towards the interpreter of Goodbye Marylou. This time the attack would come from Benjamin Biolay himself and his friend, the singer Calogero. Indeed, they would have criticized the behavior of the singer publicly in 2020: “It hasn’t been cool at all with my favorite studio in the world, in Brussels, Studios ICP, that John, the boss, is someone who takes great care of the artists, really. He was very, very mean”he reveals on the Daily. At the time Michel Polnareff spoke on his Twitter account by treating the two artists of “Co-empty”. Case to follow!
