Jean-Jacques Goldman elected for the 12th time favorite personality of the French


The star singer, who has not performed in concert since 2004, topped the annual IFOP poll commissioned by the JDD. His fans still hope that he will return to sing on stage in 2023.

For him, the years follow one another and resemble each other.

Jean-Jacques Goldman has just been “

re-elected favorite personality of the French

” by the famous IFOP poll commissioned each end of December by the JDD.

Despite his long absence from the scene - his last concert was in 2004, an eternity in the world of show business - despite his artistic retirement proclaimed since 2016, the author of

When the music is good

continues to embody benevolence and talent with a majority of French people.

With this new first place in the title of beloved hexagonal, Goldman is thus crowned for the twelfth time in more than twenty years.

Only Commander Cousteau (20 times) and Abbé Pierre (16 times) have done better to date.

Cultivate your garden between London and Marseille

The least we can say is that this twelfth trophy is not the result of media omnipresence.

A naturally discreet character, Jean-Jacques Goldman now obtains his satisfaction of benevolence... by cultivating his garden.

Far from the spotlights, the singer calmly lives his family life between London and Marseille with his wife and three teenage daughters who are respectively 14, 16 and 17 years old.

This serene happiness seems to satisfy the now septuagenarian star who admits that he no longer has the energy to perform on stage as he confided to our colleagues from


more than a year ago: "

I am sad about the sadness that this absence can cause, but I also know what the scene requires in terms of involvement, energy, desire, and I am no longer capable of it.

And it seems to me that it would be too difficult, emotionally as well


Given Goldman's lack of desire to sing in public, his return to the stage in 2023 would therefore not be on his agenda.

On the other hand, composing melodies and writing lyrics continues to fascinate him.

In January 2022, a great collector's item titled

The Goldman Legacy, Volume 1 was released.


The success was of course there.

Will it be enough to encourage him to perform in concert?

The event will no doubt be considerable and today its fans, still numerous, hope for it with all their heart.
