Mon Taratata à moi choosing David Bowie
On Friday evening a new episode of Mon Taratata à moi aired on France 2. That’s the version of the show where artists choose a performance by someone else from the Taratata archives for their personal Taratata show – while sitting in a photo booth. This time Marion Cotillard chose David Bowie because he’s a real genius and there’s really no need to say more about him.

Marion Cotillard on Taratata
France 4 & 2 finally aired the Taratata episode featuring Marion Cotillard. She appeared as Simone along with Yodelice for the song ‘More than meets the eye’ and then performed the David Bowie song ‘Velvet Goldmine’ as a duo with Yodelice. And then she was also interviewed. Rewatch the entire episode on MyTaratata.com.
She talked about her love of music and how she’s always had the dream to make music but it wasn’t until Yodelice aka Maxim Nucci pushed her that she’s living the dream. Yodelice was quick to praise her, saying that she’s very gifted and quick in learning how to play instruments by herself. She learned how to play the piano at home when she was little and how to play the cello for a film (‘Toi et moi‘) and now the guitar and bass guitar. When told not to minimalize her talents she explained that it was out of respect for musicians that she’s careful not to over emphasize her musical talents. When asked whether she dreamed of becoming a singer (musicienne) or an actress (comédienne) when she was a little girl she said she dreamed of being in musicals (comédies musicales). This lead to the music video Marion was in when she was 14 years old. She loved the song ‘Petite Fille’ a lot at the time and still loves the band Les Wampas. They joked that they could have a re-union on the show. Marion was also asked whether it’s imaginable that there’d be a solo album in the future and she said yes. The host joked that this probably means it’s already in preparation.
Here are links to things that were mentioned in the interview: Petite Fille (pictures, video), Milord duet with Jenifer (pictures, video) and The Eyes of Mars (pictures, video).
