Man Crush Monday: Matt Pokora

This week’s Man Crush Monday is a new face on our UK shores. If you’re a fan of celebrity gossip however you may recognise his face. Matt Pokora is a French R&B singer-songwriter and is the rumoured new beau of Christina Milian.  A well known face on the French music scene, Matt is currently a judge on the French version of  The Voice Kids and with his connection with LA party girl Christina, it’s likely we’ll be seeing a lot more of Matt Pokora…


Why we love him…


Matt Pokora


Least likely to…turn his nose down to reality TV.  Reality TV has played a big part in his career. In 2011 he was crowned the first winner of  Danse avec les stars which is the French version of Strictly Come Dancing beating former footballer David Ginola amongst others.

Impress him with…football skills. His father was an established footballer in France and payed for Toulouse FC at the end of his career. Matt also harboured aspirations to be a footballer as a youngster but choose the music path instead.

Mention…reality TV.  Matt’s music career launched following his appearance on the French version of Popstars. In 2003 Matt won a place in the male boy band Linkup. Much like the boy band who battled it out against Girls Aloud in the UK edition of Popstars (10 points if you can remember their name without the help of Google) Linkup faded into obscurity following poor record sales…

And another thing…Matt is close friends with  former Liverpool and QPR footballer Djibril Cissé. So much so that the pair allegedly have matching tattoos and Matt is the godfather to one of Djibril’s sons.
