  1. When he says about Lola that "there is this line that says you can as well give in and sleep with whoever you want", I wonder what line in the song he refers to. Lola is one of the songs I had never really understood the meaning of - you could easily say it's just a blah blah lovesong, but even tho he sings "it's just another lovesong", that's not typical for Mika. Well, without wanting to get too much into a song discussion here, we have an extra thread for that song, I just wonder what he refers to when he says that. From what I understand, in French after that he says something about break
  2. Maybe because it was on the setlist only on one tour, not like GK or HE on every tour since 2007.
  3. Lol did he actually say he played Lola live only 1 or 2 times?! He must've been really tired on the 2012/2013 tour to forget already that it was part of the setlist. Or did I understand that wrong? Maybe he was being ironic? That Jakub guy reminds me of Giulio in some of his photos.
  4. What's this? "Mika in a few days" on France 5 - is it the Versailles gig?
  5. I suppose the replay will be here? https://www.6play.fr/lou-et-moi-p_18039 ... so far they haven't put it there tho. There was one question I missed almost completely, because my kids were distracting me - I think she asked him sth like what he'd do if he was a woman? Not sure I understood it right... I was listening with half an ear and I remember at one point he talked about Big Girl. What did they say there?
  6. I think I heard the name Jane Birkin some time, but no idea who she is. I don't know if it's the voice itself that bothers me, or the way she sings (this song), it just somehow makes me feel uncomfortable. Her speaking voice is ok, sounds actually nice. And I can see why Mika says she's a good conversationalist - they were laughing a lot together, and she actually listened and reacted to the things he said. Quite the contrast to some other interviews. Like the one that the Subtitling team posted yesterday, that guy pretended to know a lot about Mika, but he obviously had no idea, som
  7. Haha, thanks! Yes, he talked about Fantasia at another point of the interview, I think the question was something like his ideal concert, where he could decide who is on stage? I watched Fantasia on New Year's Eve, my son requested it, because we had watched it the previous year on NYE - actually that was the first time I had watched it from beginning to end. I could imagine it becoming some sort of NYE ritual for us to watch it, it somehow fits - indeed it's like a firework by itself. My fave part is the last story with the volcano, how everything grows and rises again from a sit
  8. Ok I listened to most of it, but kept getting distracted - gotta listen again later when my kids are in bed, but I definitely need some help by our @Subtitling Team to understand everything. I loved that he talked about how it felt to him doing the Versailles fireworks, would love to understand more of that! He said he was cold, didn't he? And that he felt tiny?
  9. Sorry I can't record it - it's a bit early for me, so I hope I can even watch it live. But surely someone will record it, or it'll be available via Replay later.
  10. Translation by our @Subtitling Team: Tweets by Mika: IG stories by Lou Doillon:
  11. Have you been listening to "Dear Jealousy" and watching the "Popular Song" videoclip? Besides, I also don't have an explanation, sorry. I had another Mika dream a few days ago, a beautiful one, but all I remember of it now is that we said hello with a little kiss. It wasn't an unrealistic dream, I think it was some signing or something like this where I met him. I found it remarkable because it was the first time in months that I had a dream like that, a happy dream where I felt the connection with him. I had a lot more of those around the time of the Revelation tour, it's nice to
  12. I don't like her voice, but his is just those deep notes... Song: Diamonds and Rust by Joan Baez.
  13. That's true, but I think also because questions are often not answered on the internet. Everyone writes there, from politicians, stars and influencers with millions of followers, over normal people, to people who hide behind several different profiles, pretending to be someone completely different in each of them. For a lot of different reasons, many of these people won't answer questions online - so you automatically start to make assumptions. Which I think isn't wrong per se, you just have to realize that there are different points of view, try to open your mind to see beyond your own horizo
  14. I read an article today about hope and curiosity, it reminded me of Mika's words that curiosity is more important than hope, and I think I understand the connection now. Curiosity is like experimenting, as scientists do, try something, look at the outcome, and if it doesn't work one way, try another way and see how the outcome changes. So what they say in the article is that we should treat hope like a scientific hypothesis, which means a) doing something to get closer to what you hope for, whatever it is that you try, but if it doesn't work, just try something else. Because the best theory is
  15. Dunno where that info is from, can someone confirm?
  16. New Mika story, he says he's waiting. I wonder what for? Where is he? Studio? Airport?
  17. Thanks, dear @Subtitling Team, that was incredibly fast! I wonder if he'll even be there in person in February? Apparently he already has started working on the concept, and of course that sounds wonderful that he'll use the star academy contestants to illustrate his own story. Can't wait to see that. How are the restrictions in Canada, is there a lockdown atm? Do people coming from abroad need to quarantine?
  18. I don't remember that, where's that from? Definitely agree with you about the negative attention, that certainly might be a reason for people crossing boundaries although they should know better. I'm just watching the interview again, because while it inspired me so much, brought up a lot of questions about Mika, but also about life in general, which I want to think about and express and discuss, after a few days those emotions start to fade. I felt very deflated today after reading some news and tweets about Covid, it made me feel like I can't say much about anything because
  19. You might've been there at the gig I dreamt of, I know that @Statue_of_Liberty was, and even she stayed in the back... well, you already can see that it was a very unrealistic dream from the "Mika gig in Munich" part. 🙈
  20. Hmm, I wonder if he is already there, or if they photoshopped him into that pic.
  21. I had a nightmare about Mika last night - I dreamt he did a gig in Munich (homegig for me), in a small and cozy venue, and for some reason I couldn't go... bad enough, and then I saw videos of it, with the venue being almost empty, even the fans who were there not daring to go to the front but staying in the back. And that made me feel so incredibly bad for not having been there and supporting him, as if I had failed being a fan. It's rare that I have bad dreams about Mika (or at all, in fact), definitely prefer the happy ones.
  22. I agree, it's also an important thing he talks about there. "If you wouldn't say it out loud, shut up." That's generally a good guide for talking with each other online, and there'd surely be a lot less online bullying if everyone kept to that. But as the question she asks is, how does he live his online life, what does he say to people in this non-physical dimension: If I don't think about online bullying between school kids, but of star-fan interactions online, I think it's a lot more complex than that. Like, I often see things on social media, especially on Twitter, that I never would say t
  23. He says he wants to make artistic records, not classical music, but colourful pop. So of course the question is, as you say, what does he mean by restarting - within his very own niche, that he's aware of - colourful, unapologetic pop music, his amazing live gigs - from all the things we heard last week, in this interview, his Christmas message, the Imagine for Margo performance, it doesn't sound to me like it's much change in his artistic work - he says he's not the same artist anymore as he used to be, and the music industry has changed as well - in that interview snippet from Twitter he tal
  24. I thought he might make a few new arrangements, and really of OMS and other songs it was a new version, probably recorded with the musicians in Versailles. It was a big surprise to me to hear OMS there, and I liked that version. Maybe the whole thing could've been a bit more of that kind, but since he said in the Italian interview that the 2nd song would be Tiny Love Reprise, I did actually expect it to be a medley of his songs, not something new. I also was surprised that everyone seemed to think what he'd announce for midnight would be news, I understood his post in that way, that he'd
