After the last chemo, Florent Pagny no longer wants to live as before: “This cancer woke me up”

If Florent Pagny has been battling lung cancer for several months, the latest news on his health is pretty reassuring.

The famous singer said that she was about to finish her chemotherapy in an interview with Gala on newsstands on Thursday, May 12, 2022. Hopefully it’s something that will allow him to continue and focus on what’s important to him in life.


Born in Burgundy in 1961, Florent Pagny started singing at a very young age. However, he stepped into the music world with the hit “Anything” in 1987.

Since then, the singer has only known success thanks to her songs, especially in the compilation “My freedom to think”, “Knowing how to love”, “Where will I take you”, … “Toujours et encore”. Published in 2018.

In short, at the age of fifty-nine, the singer with a baritone voice already has a forty-year career behind him and has at least 20 albums. Not to mention his good career as a coach on the famous tele-hook “The Voice” since its launch in 2012.

But if Florent Pagny has managed to reach the pinnacle of his art after long and busy years, it now looks like he wants to retire. In any case, that’s what the singer suggested in an interview with Télé Star, not knowing how to celebrate it.

“It will be like a spinning page and I don’t know what will be written on the back. I, who joined the Salvation Army at the age of 15 and a half, will have to think about how to live my last shift despite everything I’ve been through”,

relied on the columns of the magazine.


It must be said that these last few months have given Florent Pagny no rest. The singer, who has lung cancer, has been undergoing chemotherapy treatment to fight her disease since January 2022.

But that didn’t stop her from continuing to sing on stage as she did on Tuesday, March 8.

It was also very emotional when the “Know How to Love” commentator came to sing among other artists during the support evening for Ukraine, which was broadcast live on France 2.

An opportunity for which the French actor, of course, curiously interprets the title “If it’s a song”. She also gave a short interview with Nagui. During the latter, notice that the famous artist made it clear that this would not be his last show.

When asked if he would indeed be in shape to support what was going on, he answered without hesitation:

“Yes I will be there, I can still sing”

“We don’t want to get caught up in the drama. We tell ourselves that with us there will always be a solution because there is a problem”,

He described an interview given in Gala’s columns on newsstands on Thursday, May 12, 2022.

But if the singer’s family helped her overcome this ordeal, then, by the way, the disease specifically allowed her to “clarify her future.” Indeed, if the father of the family had never dreamed of retiring before, his cancer caused him to change his mind and make his family his priority.

“After finishing my last chemotherapy, sixth grade, I will stand up again, enjoy life, be close to nature with my loved ones, and this is a chance”,



As it was said above, the news about the health status of the performer of the song “And One Day Woman” is promising. And for good reason? The famous singer will now have her last chemotherapy.

The good news, which especially pushes him to change his “look to the future”, is enjoying a wonderful vacation with his family away from the attention.

Indeed, as Gala magazine noted, the father of the family left with his beloved Azucena and their children in Mont-Saint-Michel to recharge their batteries. It’s an escape that specifically allows the “The Voice” coach to join her fight against lung cancer.

“Now I’m coming out of the tunnel. I have some answers that made me better assess the situation, and it brings back some things that I’ve lost a little bit of, that I’ve come of age (…) it awakened it and redefined the meaning of my priorities.”

explained before adding

“As soon as my protocol is finished, I will continue very quickly!”
