The Erica Diamond Podcast

Feb 10, 2020

Episode Summary

Welcome back to the second season of the Erica Diamond Podcast! This is probably one of my favorite interviews to date. Please listen to the entire episode if you can. Mitsou shares so much with us, in the most engaging and candid ways.

Mitsou was catapulted to overnight success as a teenager, and then by 22, called herself a "has-been." She talks about the music industry, what overnight fame felt like... and then having to reinvent herself. Her struggles with an eating disorder, and aging as a media host. I have no doubt, you will fall in love with Mitsou.

In This Episode

  • Coming from a family of artists, Mitsou had her TV debut at 5. And at 17, she releases a song that catapults her to success. She tells us how that happened and what that felt like.
  • I imagine a young girl rising to stardom quickly  - if you don’t have a good family, or a good support system to keep you grounded, I imagine things can take a bad turn. 
  • The high notes of Mitsou's career
  • The lower points, and how Mitsou overcame them
  • Mitsou introduced Oprah in Montreal, and talks about what that was like.
  • We hear the word reinvention a lot - Madonna comes to mind. She has kept herself relevant and has defied the test of time in the music industry. How can we keep reinventing ourselves as we age?
  • On Mitsou's eating disorder and show she keeps herself healthy
  • Speaking of aging, Erica shares that she is finding it hard. Mitsou shares about the pressure women have to stay young, and if she thinks it’s hard to embrace that with aging comes wisdom — and changes! Is she okay with it?
  • Mitsou has been the spokeswoman for the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation for the past 14 years. 
  • If she could have dinner with anyone, alive on deceased, who would it be?
  • What music is Mitsou listening to these day?
  • And more!
