Coeur de Pirate isn’t really an unknown Canadian artist by any means. But There’s random things you might not have known about this French beauty. For example, when she was 17 (not legal), she was a nude model on alternative porn site GodsGirls. Naughty!
However, the girl has the ability to sing the sweetest songs, even if the non-French speakers may not understand them. Her 2008 self-titled album was nominated for Francophone Album of the Year at the 2009 Junos. In 2009, the song off the album called Comme Des Enfants received a CBC radio 3 Bucky Award for “Best Reason to Learn French”. It was a quirky infectious pop song about a child-like relationship.

She can sing just as sweetly in English. In 2010, she collaborated with Bedouin Soundclash’s Jay Malinowski to record the addictively beautiful love song Brutal Hearts which was part of their album Light the Horizon It was the beginning of some great musical chemistry.

The collaboration was a total hit that the two released an EP recently as a duo under the name Armistice (with El Bronx as the backing band)that was just released in February.
Armistice- Mission Bells.
She’s one example of a great artist that may have had a bit of a rocky start image wise, but through talent made everybody forget about her past. She went from being alternative porn star and post-hardcore keyboardist to the sweet little blonde french girl we know today.
