While the star of the yéyés will be on stage at the Cirque Royal in Brussels on November 5 to celebrate her 60-year career, the singer wanted to send a message. Asked by South Press , the Disco icon returned to the difficulty of aging in the music industry. Celle who returned to the spotlight in April 2021 with the album Come from elsewhere has a heavy heart today.
Star of the French song, Sheila led a successful career. But not without pitfalls. The star of the 60s and 70s deplores the difference in treatment between men and women in the music industry. ' We live in a country where it is difficult to be a woman and to work in show biz.', she confides in South Press . The interpreter of School is over is sorry for a music industry mainly managed by men, especially when one evolves there as a woman who is aging. ' A singer is quickly put in the closet when she reaches the age of 40. Women do not have the right to grow old. I find it filthy ', she protested.
