Mylene Farmer (real name Mylène Jeanne Gautier) was born in Canada. She lived in Montreal with her parents until she was 10 years old. When her father’s job contract was over, the family moved to Parisian suburbs. Mylene had a hard time finding new friends in a new town. She missed her friends in Montreal. Mylene dropped out of high school right before graduation due to bad grades. After dropping out, she decided to start a new life and moved to Paris.
Mylene changed dozens of jobs, but the only one she liked was a model agency. However, Mylene didn’t want to be a model and dreamed of becoming an actress. She even attended drama classes.
Mylene’s career took off when a famous producer Laurent Boutonnat went searching for a vocalist for his new song “Maman a Tort” and visited the model agency, where Mylene was working. They recorded a single and Mylene Farmer was born. The single sold 100,000 copies and became the best-selling song in France. Farmer recorded an English version of the song called “Mama is Wrong”.
