This week's Fun Monday is being hosted at Jo Beaufoix.

I want to know about your first ‘celebrity’ crush. You know, the one you fancied from that band, or that film, or who read the news, or who won Gold at the Olympics. .Did you have their pictures on your wall or in your locker? Did you dress like them, style or color your hair like them, follow them, meet them, marry them? (It could happen.)Photos of THEM would be good, photos of YOU at the time you liked them would be even better. also, if you have time, I’d like to know whether they had any influence over your life, the person you became, or if they were just an embarrassing blip you would kind of rather forget about.
My first celebrity crush is someone that I doubt any of you know.
I grew up in Africa, and Portugal and we listened to a lot of European music not so much American music, so my crush is French.

First of all, I loved his music.
I had my entire bedroom plastered with photos of him.
I thought he was dreamy.
I had a magazine photo of him posted on my mirror. I kissed it every night before I went to bed. I bought every magazine that featured him.


Even though that long ago crush is something I usually file deep, deep in my “guilty secrets” file, I’ll never forget how special those times were.


His name is Johnny Hallyday.

Johnny Hallyday - Darling baby

He got married with Sylvie Vartan

He was dreamy looking and a voice to match!

Pamela said...

where did a frenchman get a name like that?? so funny!

Did the girls scream and throw their panties at him, like they did to Englebert Humperdink and Tom JOnes?

JennV said...

Yep, he was a handsome devil... now if only I could understand French!
Have a Fun Monday!

Jo Beaufoix said...

He was lovely. This is so funny, because when I was younger, when we were learning French, him and Jean Michelle Jar were the big names in the text book whenever it seemed to refer to music or youth culture, so I have heard of him. I much preferred him to learning my verbs.

Thanks for playing and have a wonderful day. :D

I'll admit his name (and hers) are vaguely familiar to me. He was cute! Not bad at all, not bad at ALL!

Thanks for sharing!

Your Johnny Hallyday is very handsome. His singing in French makes him even more exotic.

Amazing how many celebrity crushes are new to me...but then, I feel like an antique today.
He was quite handsome. No wonder he was a celebrity crush.
