During the semi-final of “The Voice”, Florent Pagny appeared for the first bald in the program, a logical continuation of his chemotherapy. It must be said that despite his illness, the singer always remains positive. Indeed, he has lost none of his optimism. Very close to his admirers, the interpreter of “My freedom to think” continues to reassure them. Only then, like many people who have cancer, he also sometimes has difficult times to overcome.
A sad announcement
Florent Pagny needs no introduction. Since the beginning of his career in the 80s, the son of Jean and Odile Pagny has been hitting the hits and is one of the biggest record sellers in France. His success, he owes it in particular to his public who, since January 22, 2022, have been worried about him. For good reason, on this date, he announced sad news to them.
Remember, in a short video shared on his Instagram, the emblematic coach of “The Voice” publicly declared that he had lung cancer which is unfortunately inoperable. Also in the same video, he was also in regret having to cancel his 60th anniversary tour. Which obviously saddened more than one who already saw themselves humming his most beautiful titles, but they know very well that the health of their idol comes first.
Quite a change of look
In his healing process, Florent Pagny had to start a few chemotherapy sessions for a period of six months. As we all already know, it causes hair loss in cancer patients and the singer was no exception.
Thus, on March 8, 2022, during the charity concert organized by France 2 with the aim of helping the Ukrainian people, everyone was shocked to see his new face. Indeed, it is a completely bald Florent Pagny who appeared on stage for the good cause. Obviously, following this, the reactions were numerous as one could expect.
Even if for years, the star has accustomed us to haircuts just as eccentric as each other, seeing him appear with a shaved head was not very easy. For his part, the singer is ironic about the situation. With humor, he said in particular:
“There, it’s not even a cup anymore. It’s true that events have rushed… You say to yourself, I’m going to shorten their suffering (to the hair, editor’s note), do something more correct because these chemos make their hair fall out a little. But it’s okay, it doesn’t prevent us from staying in shape and still looking good. »
So these are words that prove for the umpteenth time that Florent Pagny is a true example of hope and fighting spirit.
Indeed, he could feel sorry for himself, but he is not. Although sick, the darling of Azucena continues to share good vibes around him. However, he does not hide the fact that in this fight he is leading against cancer, certain moments can sometimes be complicated. Asked by Nikos Aliagas in the columns of the magazine Gala, Florent Pagny notably returned to these hard times which more or less beat his morale.
Thus, he confided:
“Yes, I’ve known this period when you don’t want anything, you don’t have the peach, your heart is on your lips, but it passes. I passed the pure chemo, the one that fights: heartache for twelve days, it’s no longer a joke! You know, the seasickness you get after you’ve been on dry land for a week. »
Fortunately, in these difficult times, Florent Pagny can always count on the support of his wife and children, including his daughter Aël.
A cliché that says a lot about his health
Born on May 26, 1996, Aël Pagny seems to be very close to her famous father, as evidenced by the photos she shares on social networks. Moreover, on May 12, 2022, the young woman passionate about photography shared a snapshot of her “boss” during their family stay at Mont-Saint-Michel.
In the photo in question, dressed in black and staring at the horizon, Florent Pagny appears with a cane; which proves that his fight is not easy. The latest news is that her tumor has shrunk considerably after two treatment sessions. According to him, the size of a kiwi, it turned into a hazelnut. So that’s something to reassure his audience. In a video, he said that if all goes well, next year they can meet again for the 61-year-old tour.
