But the star is singer Mika, here in quite a bit of a conversation with Karl Lagerfeld
Mika: really, it’s super chic.
Karl: me, I do all the scenery for my fashion shows Chanel and all, my gigantic scenery…
Mika: I know, I know it well.

Mika: “When a singer play a role in The Voice, you can immediately tell.“
18.25 INTERVIEW – For the occasion of the first live show of The Voice, Saturday evening on TF1, Mika had a look around the Metronews editorial board. It’s the chance to talk about his talents, about the behind the scenes of the show and about his next album, which he prepared in Los Angeles.
- The live shows of The Voice start this Saturday night on TF1. Do you think that the 2014 edition winner is in your team?
Mika: I hope so, but I realise that there is some competion. In my team, I think that there are two potential winners but I can’t say their names. The show takes place in a really weird way.
Unlike other shows, you can be a part of The Voice even if you’re signed with a record label. When I make my choices, I know that I’m not only fighting against the artist, but often against the team behind him. Read the rest of this entry
He’s the little prince of pop music.
With his well-chosen lyrics, his catchy and sophisticated melodies, his voice which takes the stars off, Mika imposed himself as Freddy Mercury’s spiritual son. Dark curls, ravishing smile, the Lebanon born songwriter, 30 years old, sold 19 million copies of his first album in 2007. No less! And since then, success sticks to his sneakers. Exceptional judge on The Voice, fashion crazy, Mika accepted to answer a little phone questionnaire from Los Angeles.
It is a huge honor to be asked as the face of a Chanel campaign, but an even bigger honor to have one of Chanel’s luxury products named after you. After the Bal de La Rose in Monaco, the British-Lebanese popstar Mika met with Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld. Sources say the pair discussed the expansion of Chanel Homme.
“Mr. Lagerfeld was really interested in Mika’s views. Mika had great ideas for a new line of bags for men and Mr. Lagerfeld immediately suggested to name the center piece after Mika. Needless to say, Mika was very honored.”
The collaboration won’t stop there, as Karl Lagerfeld offered to shoot the popstar’s new album cover. The as of yet nameless album is expected to be released early 2015.
It is unknown when the bags will be in stores.
Note this is not true. Happy April Fool’s day!
2014. March is already coming to an end. What can a tall, skinny popstar do in a few months? Apparently he had a pretty busy schedule. Here’s a sneak peek on what he let us know through Twitter:
After a little skiing in a very very dark suit, he went to Milan (interview at “Le Invasioni Barbariche”), popped out in Paris for recording The Voice and visiting one of his favourites shops, flew in Cambodia for a one week holiday, then back to London. And this was just January.
Next year Mika will be performing in Montreal with the Montreal Orchestra. More information will be released next week.
“VERY excited to announce my collaboration for next year with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, full orchestral concert in Feb 2015. It’s a huge honour, here is an early piece from La Presse (in French), more details next week, we are aiming at doing something amazing”
Mika recently tweeted:
“1st day back in the studio. Aller aller!”
Let’s hope this will be the start of a great new album with a lot of new music!
