JORDY - Dur Dur D'etre Bebe (1992)
Jordy is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the youngest singer ever to have a #1 charted single. He achieved this feat at the age of four-and-a-half with the song "Dur dur d'être bébé! ("It's Tough to Be a Baby"). "Dur dur d'être bébé" was #1 for 15 weeks in France and was a dance hit across Europe, Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela and Japan. It landed at #58 on the US charts. It was so popular that a TV show in Venezuela even looked for a Venezuelan look-alike of Jordy. Jordy is the son of music producer Claude Lemoine, known for his involvement with the Rockets from 1976 to 1992.
However, in 1994, the French government banned six-year-old Jordy from television and radio, out of concern that he was being exploited by his parents. Rumors of exploitation were furthered when the Lemoine family opened La Ferme de Jordy (Jordy's Farm), a children's tourist attraction which was a financial failure. Jordy insisted that the farm was his idea, and raising goats had been a backup career choice following the performance ban. In 1996 Jordy's parents divorced; he returned to school and was later emancipated. Before Jordy returned to school, the dropout rate of French students was at an all time high. Jordy's return to his studies inspired many other French children. By the time he graduated, the high school dropout rate in France was only 3%. Unfortunately, 5 years later the dropout rate had risen to 18%, leading Jordy to star in a series of public service announcements. These PSAs proved somewhat effective; the dropout the following year fell to 12%.
As a teenager, Jordy appeared on the second season of the French television show La Ferme Célébrités 2 on April 30, 2005, his first public appearance in almost 10 years. He was the final winner of this show on June 28, 2005.
On February 28, 2006 he released his first new single in 12 years, "Je t'apprendrai". Jordy is currently in the band Jordy & the Dixies. They are touring and making albums and songs. A small controversy occurred when French tabloids reported that the Dixies were underpaid homeless street walkers that Jordy was exploiting. Jordy called a press conference to respond to the allegation saying, "This is totally false. I love the homeless, but they are not competent musicians."
