Philippe Lavil to announce shock retirement from music?

Lavil created a stir on Saturday when rumors have surfaced that his career was over.

Sad news for Lavil fans. Speculation had been rife that the French singer best known for hit songs like Elle préfère l'amour en mer or Il tape sur des bambous, will announce his retirement from music, at age 73, with immediate effect.

UPDATE 18/04/2021 : This story seems to be false. (read more)

Being a singer isn't fun anymore

“As we get older, there are phases of life that we enter into, and being a singer-songwriter just isn't fun anymore,” he might have said, says a source who remained anonymous. Other reports hinted that he may branch out into other creative fields he is better at (and more interested in), though they didn't provide any details.


For a little while on Saturday evening, #ThankYouPhilippe was a trending hashtag on Twitter. As many fans reminisce and look back on all the unforgettable memories, some may wonder what about now made him make the decision.

“You’ve accomplished everything I ever dreamed of #ThankYouPhilippe.”
