Released on May 13 this year, Paradis' latest album Love Songs is a double-album consisting of 20 tracks. During the 66th annual Cannes Film Festival she was spotted rehearsing the album's title-track for "Le Grand Journal" television show. Though the song is mostly in her native language, French, the chorus is in English. Paradis sings: "Love, I don't know/Nothing about love, you know/Hold me till the day is done/All night long let's have some fun."
Definitely a catchy number. Check out the Vanessa Paradis' music video for "Love Song" right here:
Her break-up with Johnny Depp definitely made Paradis realize how much she missed working. According to a source, "Vanessa started to feel like she'd sacrificed her career for his."
Luckily, she has gotten right back into her acting career as well!
Vanessa is currently set filming a new movie directed by John Turturro and stariing Live Schreiber, Woody Allen and Sofia Vergara. This impressive list of actors make up the cast of "Fading Gigolo," a comedy set in New York City. The French beauty portrays a widow in the film. Paradis' character is also Orthodox Jewish, so her long hair is hidden under a traditional wig.
Vanessa Paradis is also the spokesperson for Channel and recently hit the red carpet before her trip to Cannes.
It looks like the multi-talented French beauty is really getting back into the swing of things, wouldn't you agree?
