Jane Birkin will long remember the 36th Victoires de la Musique ceremony. The 74-year-old singer had a most emotional evening, and too bad for the critics of the viewers, shocked to see so many audiences in the room during this period of pandemic. The interpreter of I love you … neither do I has been overcome with emotion for several times. First of all, thanks to the tribute paid by the singers Étienne Daho, Vanessa Paradis, Eddy de Pretto or Jacques Dutronc to Serge Gainsbourg, whose the thirty years of the disappearance will be celebrated on March 2, 2021. Touched to hear again her biggest hits written by the father of her daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin couldn't help but shed a few tears. But that was without counting on the surprise that Stéphane Bern and Laury Thilleman, the masters of ceremonies, had in store for him for the presentation of his Victory of Honor.
Jane Birkin, in tears, thanks the French for having "adopted" her
It is the youngest daughter of Jane Birkin, Lou Doillon, who came especially for the occasion on the scene of the musical Seine. The 38-year-old singer and actress recited a magnificent speech against her mother, whose special voice and pronounced accent have enchanted the French for many decades. "Fifty years that we look at you without ever defining you. You, the balancing act who crossed while giving everything. You on edge, you flower with the gun, without asking yourself any questions, you have broken the borders, you the muse "Lou said, drawing tears to her mother who, after receiving her honorary award, also wanted to greet her family, including her late daughter Kate Barry, who died in December 2013, and her French fans: "I would like to thank my daughters Kate, Charlotte and Lou, and their children. Thank you for adopting, listening, pampering, following me from my arrival here fifty years ago until this emotion tonight". A tender moment that she will remember for a long time.
