“An icon of reality television with volcanic temperament and physics, Nabilla unleashes the crowds at each apparition. Today, she wants to enter a new stage in her career and life.”
“I do not complain, I explain. I think – a little bit. I’m twenty-four, when I look at myself in an ice cream, I see a young girl, but behind my image I feel much older. What I lived, I want to tell. To finally say my thought, my feeling. Take control of my life. These last three years are like a little adventure novel where we laugh, where we cry, where we like and do not like. I did it all thoroughly. I did not want to meet any journalist for more than a year. I do not spit in the soup, I explain … To thank those who supported me hoping to entertain them. And be less despised by others – if possible. I’m a show girl, a funny girl, and I kiss you hard.
A creature made by the media, an icon of reality television with volcanic temperament and physics, Nabilla provokes a riot every time she appears. Today, at the age of twenty-four, she wishes to enter a new stage in her career and her life. This book is the new beginning.”
“Whether one is crazy about her, like many, or a simple lover of her songs, tears and stars still illuminate her wake. Piano-woman, solitary lover, extravagant, acrobat, libertarian, bad cook, gardener in Précy-sur-Marne, telephage and knitter, the “brown lady” remains an extraordinary figure of the French culture.
Jean-François Kervéan wanted to write Barbara and his suns rather than a respectful biography. Find the woman, tell her story, her inspirations. Explore the origins of his one hundred and sixty songs. Throughout the century, from the yellow star to the Left Bank whirlwind, from the Algerian war to the HIV virus … With it, the reader roams the empty stomach in Brussels in 1950, breathes the roses of Göttingen and perfumes from Equatorial Africa, leaves the arms of Claude, Jean, Hubert or Simon for those of the theaters.
When destiny mingles with an existence, the intimate quickly joins the universal: Barbara the Mysterious reveals itself of an absolute coherence. For her, happiness is less accessible than glory, but her talent and her insane generosity also made her life a feast. Everyone will recognize, through a shared grief or a burst of laughter, the beat of his own heart.”
