Vanessa Chantal Paradis has made a name for herself as a singer and an affluent celebrity. She has been acting and singing from the early 80s and has popularized her name throughout Europe via roles in movies likeCafe de Flore, Heartbreaker and Noce Blanche. However, it must be said that in recent years she has filled the tabloids and newspapers as Johnny Depp's girl - more so after their breakup in June 2012 following 14 years of living together.
Ms. Paradis has an impressive discography. Starting with M&J, she had released 5 studio albums by 2007. She also has 4 live albums with her album LIVE being the top grosser with 150,000 Francs in 1994. She has been quite a prolific actor too with more than a dozen movies to her credit. Add another dozen or so singles to her credit, again with her first (Joe le taxi) being her best. In 2011, she became the spokeswoman for Chanel. However the greatest source of income will be the 'palimony' of $150 million that Johnny Depp has promised to pay her.
2011 saw the singer touring extensively in USA, Canada, Europe, UK and Turkey for her concerts. Touring for various reasons is another thing that she has had extensively in her life! She has been spotted in Montreal (Canada), Tokyo, Ibiza, Saint Tropez and Antibes. And she vacations in style too as sailed in a personal yacht at Corsica, off the coast of France. She has purchased (courtesy her former partner, Depp) a sprawling Mediterranean-style mansion on Mulholland Drive at an estimated $4.4 million. She makes use of a host of top-notch brands which include Guiseppe Zanoti, Jimmy Choo, Hermes and Marc. She owns a large heart too and performs quite a bit of charity. For long, she has been a patron of the children's charity "Rêve", donating up to 750,000 francs (proceeds from a concert) on an occasion. Restos du cœu, the meals-on-wheels French charity for the homeless has also benefited from her magnanimity.
It was the French television show, L'Ecole Des Fans, which provided the little Vanessa her first break. Soon, at 13, she recorded her debut single, La Magie Des Surprises-Parties. The big break came when she was invited by her uncle to sing along for the song Joe le Taxi. There was no looking back after that and it was 'Paradis'e found for her with the album M&J, closely followed by a eponymous album Vanessa Paradis. 1994 saw her move from stage into the worldwide stage of fashion and soon into the silver-screen world. She won the Cesar award for the most promising actress even as she started off with Noce Blanche. She has grown as an actress winning the best actress award in her 2012 Café de Flore. Being relevant after 3 decades of acting is some achievement. She dated many singers before falling in love with Johnny Depp. Their 14-year relationship ended recently with the break-up in June 2012 after having resulted in a daughter and a son.
