No matter how long it may be, Ti-Cuir is really just a mortal. Since he came into our lives in 1994 with his first album Obsession, Éric Lapointe never really came out. But time does its work, and the singer with the powerful voice definitely does not have 20 years! This finding is sometimes difficult to accept for the proud father of Christophe-Arthur and Edouard, aged seven and six, who told Echoes Vedettes magazine its concerns about aging:
“It’s inevitable, we get old, even though I think the rebellious bum is still in me. But I’m afraid of growing old, I’m afraid of being overwhelmed. I do not see love in the same way and, more importantly, I do not see life in the same way anymore. My children have taken a great importance in my life; they go before my job. It is a normal evolution; it’s the same for everyone.”
The fact of being a father pushed the artist to want to live as long as possible for his sons, he had also confessed a few months ago. No more parties that do not end for the star coach of La Voix! But moderation is not his only battle horse to allow himself to age well: the heart-loving rocker is also a big fan of crossword puzzles!
“It helps me reconnect my brain and my neurons, and at the same time, it allows me to talk to no one for at least an hour. I go all the sudoku and crosswords, in the morning, from all the newspapers. Meanwhile, no one should talk to me. It’s a little moment that allows me to get out of my mist. And then, by dint of doing, I become good. Besides, I’m also dangerous at Scrabble. ”
It’s a bit like our ultimate dream to be able to challenge the performer of Belle Folie to the great game of words!
The public is not about to let go either: his new album, Délivrance, has already earned a golden record barely two months after its release! It’s off to last a long time, our beautiful love story with Éric Lapointe!
