THE INTERVIEW
PONY RYDER: Baptiste, you have a music single coming out! How long have you been working on your album?
BAPTISTE GIABICONI: Preparing an album takes time because I appreciate to work with people I really like and I need to take time to do what I really want.

PONY RYDER: What is the musical style of your record?
BAPTISTE GIABICONI: The musical style will be mostly electro-pop. I am currently working on a clip video with my manager and producer Side Hajjaji.

PONY RYDER: Do you think it will be fashion inspired?
BAPTISTE GIABICONI: No, it will not be fashion inspired at all.


PONY RYDER: Are you comfortable juggling and switching between music and fashion? BAPTISTE GIABICONI: Yes, I am used to it and my work is so much fun that I really enjoy it.
PONY RYDER: When did you develop an interest in making music?
BAPTISTE GIABICONI: Since I was a kid, but before I met my manager and producer Side Hajjaji I just “went with the flow” on the fashion life, that I have put music apart for a while. Thank you Side to have made my dream come true… :)



PONY RYDER: How much pressure do you feel to prove yourself as a singer?
BAPTISTE GIABICONI: I don't have any pressure, I just do what I like and I hope people will enjoy it as much as I do singing it.


PONY RYDER: Do you have stage fright?
BAPTISTE GIABICONI:
Not for the moment because I am used to that during fashion shows, but I am sure it will come very fast :)


PONY RYDER: Are you planning on doing a tour soon?
BAPTISTE GIABICONI:
I would love to do a tour, but one step after the other...for the moment I am promoting my single and working on my album.
PONY RYDER: The entire world was quite impressed with your relaxed and friendly attitude during your interview with mademoiselle Agnes! How do you stay so grounded?

BAPTISTE GIABICONI:
It is just the way I am, I just know where I come from and how lucky I am to be there.
PONY RYDER: Did “Face au Monde”, children's charity organization, affect you in any way? What moved you to join them?
BAPTISTE GIABICONI:
During a dinner, I met a famous surgeon working at the Trousseau hospital in Paris – Dr. Gerald Franchi. He told me about his association « Face au Monde » which is exclusively humanitarian.

It has been created to help children from all around the world that have serious facial malformations to benefit from the best surgery techniques in France. These surgeries give them the hope of a normal life and a face for life.

Surgeons who participate in these interventions do not get paid, and the association mainly counts volunteers.

My mom works in the social field and is involved in many organizations; she inspired me. So when I met Dr. Franchi and I saw these children in such pain, I felt like it was normal to be involved in his association…I even felt the need to.

Working in a glittering world where appearance comes first, I think it’s important to go back to real values and to reality; to these children, what matters is to have a face and a normal life, that’s it.

I want to help these kids who suffer physically by trying – thanks to my image and fame – to collect funds in order for them to be lodged in local families, and be operated by Dr. Franchi’s teams in France. This association exists only thanks to the donators’ generosity. And I am really proud to be the godfather of this association.

PONY RYDER: Do you like bouillabaisse?
BAPTISTE GIABICONI: Yes, of course

PONY RYDER: What is your dearest memory of Marseilles?
BAPTISTE GIABICONI: I know it might sound a bit like a «clich√©“ but simply to have breakfast on the “Vieux Port“ in Marseille and watch the sun rising up.




PONY RYDER: Do you wake up and have a croissant? How does your typical day in Paris look like?

BAPTISTE GIABICONI: Wake up and have breakfast made of coffee (real French coffee of course :)), orange juice, French bread with butter and honey... You know everything..



PONY RYDER: Despite all the glamour of life in Paris, life in Corsica sounds so much better.

BAPTISTE GIABICONI: Paris is the city of energy which I really love for work, and Corsica is where I go to refill my batteries.

PONY RYDER: What's next on your big life to-do list?

BAPTISTE GIABICONI: Start a new career as a singer….
