Clara Luciani was crowned “female artist” during the 35th Victoires de la Musique, Friday evening, with her first album with the predestined name “Sainte-Victoire”. Among men, it was Philippe Katerine who was awarded for his crazy peplum album “Confessions”.
This is the beautiful story of French song: far from the cliché of the meteoric start, Clara Luciani had to wait almost a year for exploding “La Grenade”, her feminist hit. “I am distraught,” she commented, very moved when receiving her award. Belgian singer Angèle also competed in this category.
“A month ago, I said to myself Philippe, you suck as a singer,” said Philippe Katerine, who was always so offbeat when he received his prize. He was opposed for this award to Alain Souchon and Lomepal.
