amanda lear, double jeu amada lear, a life of double-dealing Par – By omas Lapras.

D’amanda lear, on sait presque tout. son passé avec Dali et Bowie, ses talents de chanteuse et de comédienne, son don “ d’illumineuse ”. Mais dès que l’on pense la saisir, la voilà qui s’enfuit. On la croit rayonnante, elle est traversée d’ombres. On la devine forte, et d’un coup ses fissures nous brisent. C’est sans doute pour cela qu’elle est une amuseuse autant qu’une muse, une idole et une artiste entière. entre deux albums et d’une pièce de théâtre l’autre, elle retourne sous ses oliviers du midi et se cache pour peindre. et si c’était cette amanda lear-là qui nous disait le plus la vérité ? esquisse de portrait.

We know almost everything about amanda lear, her talents as a singer and an actress, her gift to act as a shining presence. But as soon as one thinks they have come closer to her inner truth, she vanishes. One thinks she's full of joy, but shadows hang over her. We see her as a strong character, but soon enough her little foibles shatter us. This is probably why she amuses us as a muse, an idol and a complete artist. Between two albums and a play, she is back in the shade of the Midi olive trees where he hides to paint. Isn't that amanda truer than the other ones ?
