Not content with borifying "edgy" MuchMusic vj George Stroumboulopoulos, the CBC has now frumpified Mitsou. This chanteuse, whose genius "Bye Bye Mon Cowboy" was the single notable accomplishment of Canadian culture during the 1980s, is now reduced to interviewing elderly folks about their Irish heritage in Quebec or some such. This is a travesty. Thanks, CBC. Thanks for violating my youth.
"It's a big job and responsibility, I know," admits Mitsou, who exploded on to the airwaves with her 1988 hit "Bye Bye Mon Cowboy" and a steamy music video shot in a Turkish bath that was initially banned from MTV and had many calling her Quebec's home-grown Madonna. "But it's going to be different and fun, no?"

But does Ms. Gelinas wear her fishnet stockings and "Bye Bye Mon Cowboy" getup while interviewing the elderly folks? That's the kind of thing Canadians need to know.

I worked retail with her in the eighties before her big break. We had a blast. Good times :)
