AlizĂ©e Jacotey was born in Ajaccio, Corsica, on August 21, 1984 and is a French singer. She goes by the stage name AlizĂ©eâ€”the feminine form of alizĂ©, the trade wind. She was discovered by MylĂ¨ne Farmer, following her winning performance in the talent show, Graines de Star, in 1999. While collaborating with MylĂ¨ne Farmer and Laurent Boutonnat, AlizĂ©e released two albumsâ€”both of which were hits inside and outside of France.
AlizĂ©e entered the music business in 2000. She has since released three studio albums - first two of which were composed by Laurent Boutonnat and written by MylĂ¨ne Farmer. Her first album was Gourmandises, which received Platinum certification within three months of release. Gourmandises was a success both in France and abroadâ€”after it had its international launch in 2001â€”earning AlizĂ©e the distinction of being the highest selling female French singer in 2001. The album featured her most successful single "Moi... Lolita" which reached number one in several countries in Europe and East Asia. The marketing campaign around the single affixed AlizĂ©e's image as that of a seductive lolita. Gourmandises was followed by a second studio album, Mes Courants Ă‰lectriques in 2003, which was also quite successful, though not as big a hit as AlizĂ©e's debut album. Following its release, AlizĂ©e toured France during the fall of 2003, performing in 43 concerts throughout France, along with Belgium and Switzerland.
AlizĂ©e married fellow French singer JĂ©rĂ©my Chatelain in late 2003. Since her marriage she took a break from singing, but returned with a new album, titled PsychĂ©dĂ©lices on December 3, 2007.
AlizĂ©e debuted in 2000 with the album Gourmandises. It went on to become a hit both in Europe and outside. The album reached top five in charts in France, Germany, Mexico, Asian Countries and others. It was followed up with a studio album in 2003, Mes Courants Ă‰lectriques, and a live albumâ€”AlizĂ©e En Concertâ€”in 2004.
AlizĂ©e has sold nearly five million albums & singles around the globe. She has taken part in various stage shows and live performances throughout Europe and Russia, in addition to starring in a Japanese commercial. More recently, she has been becoming just as popular in North America as she is in much of Europe; the latest concert tours together with earlier promotion leading to a very strong fan base in mainly The United States of America and in Mexico. In addition, she is also very popular in parts of Asia including Russia, India, China and Japan.
Following her marriage in late 2003, AlizĂ©e had taken a hiatus from singing and had avoided appearing in the media since, with her older official site being offline since summer of 2005. Her first television appearance since then was on MTV France on February 18, 2006. She has since resumed media appearances beginning in the second half of 2007 for promotion of her third studio album, PsychĂ©dĂ©lices.
