Rickie en Fran├žais

I just came across this French translation of my 2011 VanityFair.com interview with Rickie Lee Jones on a site called devildog666! In the interview Rickie talks about living in Paris years ago--an excerpt, en anglais: "There was a ballerina who worked at the record company who helped me find a place on the Invalides. It was a tiny pad like you’d have in a movie and I bought a coffeepot and I had my little calico cat, and she’d run out over the rooftops." I am French on my father's side and love the language. Though I'm hardly fluent, perhaps I won't find this too difficult to read, for obvious reasons! Magnifique!
