A tall skinny guy enters, wearing a derby hat, cool shoes and quirky sunglasses. It’s Sliimy: the small-town French pop singer, who’s love affair with music started when he was very young. His voice was first exposed to the world with a viral internet video, his cover of Britney’s bitchy ‘Womanizer’, and he hasn’t stopped intriguing us since. After a critically acclaimed first album, ‘Paint your face’, the Frenchie has traveled world-wide touring & has even collaborated with blogger Perez Hilton. He is currently in the studio, working on album #2.
Dirty met Sliimy at a secret location, perfectly suited to his character, to talk about his career, music and of course art. After the interview, we had the privilege of being invited to his lovely and très Parisien flat — surrounded by old and interesting objects from the last century. As a special gift to the DIRTY, he performed his cover of the new indie sensation Lana Del Rey’s ‘Blue Jeans’ (which led us to ponder whether the two would end up collaborating…) Let’s learn more about this adorable and talented dirty boy, in our first ever video interview.
