This chronology is based on the work of many fans. The original Spanish version was created by Homer and which later was translated and continued by AlphaDevil in English, until early March 2010. RMJ has completed the missing events and dates for the early 2010, and everything after March 2010 till present day. Countless of other people have helped with corrections to dates, times and locations during the years, unfortunately it's impossible to name all of them. But they do deserve thanks also.
Another big change done by RMJ is converting the office document into real database. This offers in the future easy search function, sorting of events by different meanings, easy cross-referencing and countless of other amazing things that can be done dynamically. Eventually even video and photo database connection could be added, to complete the Alizée-experience.
If you notice inaccuracy or mistake in the chronology, or if you know and event that is missing, you can send an email to the address shown at the bottom of the page.
Alizée auditions for “Graines de star”. First in Corsica (in the césar palace) and then in Paris interpreting the song “waiting for tonight”. Although for several reasons the precise date of this is not clear for example it appears in some videos that it is actually 19th December 1999. Whilst when Graines de Star was broadcasted, a fragment of the video appears with the label: Audition January 2000.
25th February 2000

). Claimed on another site it was 27th
of February (gourmand'alizée
). There is some doubt about the exact dates of “Graines De Star” performances by Alizée due to schedule changes on the show. Some videos show Alizée performances as dated in 1999, however Homer feels the above dates are correct.

16th September 2000
She appeared on “Hit Machine” on channel M6. On this occasion she appears dressed much more simplistic than she did in “Le Grand Soir.” (Source Nidalizée
) She demonstrates the great fluent dancer that she is. In the evening of the same day at 18:15 hours she appears on studio 22 on RTL channel. In the interview Alizée gave, she stated that she is the one who chooses the subjects of her songs, and that the songs are about her life experiences. It is then Mylène Farmer who interprets these experiences and turns them into songs. It is for this reason that “Goumandises” is an autobiographical album. There is no video of this interview, nor is there much information about the interview, but it is commentated on Alizée Web
in the news section and the section regarding television appearances. In addition there are photos of it and an audio recording.
23rd September 2000
Appeared on “Fan De” on channel M6 at 12:05 hours. (Source tinkalizée
) This is the famous interview with Alizée on the boat. There is some confusion over the date of this video because there are several dates. There is the 23rd
of September and there is February 2001 (or June of the same year but these are no more then repetitions (Source tinkalizée
)). However there are several reasons why the correct date must be September 2000. Firstly her hairstyle is short in the video and matches the style she had in September. Secondly the logos of the programs are different. In the September transmission, the logo is an orange star in the bottom left of the screen with “Fan de” on it. In the 2001 version underneath “fan de”, the words “best of” appears and this is a definite sign that it is just a repeat of the original interview.
