Biography

Mylène Farmer is a Canadian born French singer, songwriter, occasional actress, and author.

Farmer was born Mylène Gautier on 12th September 1961 in Pierrefonds, Quebec, a suburb (now borough) of Montreal. Her parents had moved from France in the late 1950s as Farmer’s father, Max, pursued an engineering contract on a dam. Her family returned to France when she was eight, settling in the Parisian suburb of Ville d’Avray. In her teenage years, Farmer was passionate about horse-riding, qualifying as a riding instructor at the equestrian centre in Saumur. At seventeen, however, she discovered acting and she abandoned the stables to take a three-year course at the Cours Florent, a drama school in Paris. Changing her name to Mylène Farmer as a tribute to her idol, 1930s Hollywood actress Frances Farmer, she began to earn a living as a model, appearing in several television advertisements.

In 1984, Farmer met Laurent Boutonnat, a young film student also enrolled in Cours Florent, when she replied to a newspaper ad for an actress for a small film he was working on. Farmer and Boutonnat became friends and forged a creative partnership, writing and producing the music. Boutonnat, whose ambition was to become a film director, was the force behind Mylène’s videos. Much of Farmer’s fame and success can be attributed to elaborate and theatrical music videos which are seen as short films.

    Be Me — наипримитивнейшая песня из всего репертуара Милен. ИМХО.

    Все разные) Мне песня в дуэте с Халедом нравится много меньше, чем этот "синтезатор Лорана" и остальное =D

    lirtm, я основываюсь на результатах голосования на небезызвестном вам форуме мфармер) Ну неет, La poupée.. явно днищем низя назвать, она, по крайней мере, не вызывает рвотных рефлексов)) чего не скажешь про бими. Это бибиканье... мда... да даже Лав Дэнс много приятнее на слух)

    kara-kusek, ну-у... Я б не заявлял от лица большинства поклонников) С кем сталкивался, уж днищем не считали ее) Своеобразный трек, да) Таким же днищем можно тогда считать La poupée... в Tour96) Sextonik, Be Me, Love Dance — треки именно Милен. Она может быть ведь и Тристаной, и Либертиной. И почему, имея в списке такие треки, как JTDT и Quand, DMA и Неразлучников, не разбавить их легкими трекам, т. как Sextonik, Be Me, Love Dance?

    lirtm, на вкус и цвет, конешн.. но по мнению большинства поклонников, бимишка - это просто днище.
