Not That Jordy

I sincerely wish that this post was about StarTrek barrier-breaker Jordy LaForge. But its not, it is in fact about something far more amazing than a guy from the future who is blind but can see when wearing a headband.

I speak, of course, of French child popstars. At first, I thought his song "Dur Dur D'Etre Bebe" was just a harmless, frogspeak chanson about the hardships of being a child in a country where they hate our freedom. It turns out that the truth is far more sordid. Jordy, who had a monstrous hit with this ditty, was only 4 and a half when he sang this. Now, while this was enough to win the squirt a spot in the Guinness book of world record for youngest dude ever to win a pop hit (or something), he was subsequently banned from French TV when people started to get the idea that good old Jordy was in fact being exploited by his baguette-grubbing, beret-wielding parents. Way to go, France. They are like, well, dude is being exploited, which is cool, we just don't want to see it. Anyways, here's the song.
What's that? What is Jord-O up to now? Oh, glad you asked, turns out that Jordy has decided to take out his angst against the world in a decidedly Anglo-Americain way, by becoming a Pop Punk Rocker. God help us.
