clean up request[edit]

'who decides about putting up such a clean up request and could that person please explain the reason why he / she did it? Boneyard 14:18, 2 May 2005 (UTC) ''''Bold text''''Bold text'Bold text''''

Hi! Any user can by adding {{cleanup}}. There are at Wikipedia:Template messages. It needs light copyediting: album titles should be in italics rather than bold; individual song titles should be in "quotations", and neither italicized nor bolded, unless, if I'm getting this part right, you're talking specifically about single in very specific contexts where it compares to a record:
"Neige au Sahara" reached number X on the MTV Europe charts.
but
"Neige au Sahara" was the first single from...
but
Neige au Sahara became the number X single in France.
Some things should be linked where an article would help the reader understand what is being talked about (Microcredit? What would be the link for Chevalier des Arts et Lettres?) or links could be better (Pope John Paul II rather than Pope). Some wording is ambiguous:
Her parents at first did not approve of her marriage but finally relented. Eventually they divorced.
This probably means Anggun and her first husband divorced, but it could be that her parents divorced.
But the big thing is the "News" section. This is something you'd find (with good reason!) on an Anggun fan page, but you shouldn't really have a "News" section in an encyclopedia article. It should be rewritten into the main body of the article:
""Être Une Femme", the first single from Luminescence, was released in France on January 2, 2005..."
I didn't have time when I posted the request to touch it up myself, but I thought the article deserved to look more like a Wikipedia article in these ways. Why am I going on about it now rather than doing it? Because you asked! *friendly smile* :) Samaritan 13:27, 2 May 2005 (UTC)
ok, thanks, i certainly agree with some of those points, ill look into making those changes Boneyard 14:18, 2 May 2005 (UTC)
some other people did some work and i also redid somethings, it's looking better now, but not done yet. Boneyard 08:07, 25 May 2005 (UTC)
I have done more editing of the page. Good see others are interested in Anggun, too!! :) Mseames 23:47, Jun 8, 2005 (UTC)

==> Ambassador of Audemars Piguet in CHARITY Work ?! Something is wrong here as she's getting paid for this endorsement contract!

Muslim?[edit]

I wonder how she is Muslim if she has songs like "Undress Me"....:D Anyhow, minor point, but did she learn French in Indonesia or overseas? Elle vécut heureuse à jamais (Be eudaimonic!) 09:32, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

D'accord, although I wish people would just say they were one or another (and not lukewarm *cough* *cough*). ;-) Elle vécut heureuse à jamais (Be eudaimonic!) 17:22, 17 June 2006 (UTC)
Islam is one of those religions where you may be much better off living "lukewarm" than apostatizing. Particularly in countries known for violence. The Jade Knight 09:40, 20 February 2007 (UTC)'Bold text'
Not sure about how Muslim she is and anyway i think it's none of my (or your) business, but anyway, she learned French in Alliance Francaise in France.. unsure if she learnt it prior to marrying her first husband and moving away from Indonesia - --Sweetpopcorn1 12:43, 21 October 2007 (UTC)
She has identified herself publicly as a Muslim, most recently in an interview during her last concert series in Indonesia:

http://discover-indo.tierranet.com/anggunConcert.htm "I was born in a Muslim country. I am Muslim. But I’m very concerned that my country is becoming backward in this way. Because Islam is known as a tolerant religion. I don’t support countries that frustrate the young generation." 173.228.123.13 (talk) 05:55, 25 May 2012 (UTC)ahassan05

Indonesian?[edit]

Does she still hold Indonesian citizenship? Or even so, I think it would be more ethical to say she was a French-Indonesian singer/songwriter/etc... over "Indonesian with French citizenship" making it sound as if the French citizenship is rather novelty. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 218.215.129.118 (talk) 14:55, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

I think that it would be more ethical to say she is a "Indonesian singer with French citizenship", not "French-Indonesian". She's pure Indonesian. Her family is Javanese and didn't had European or other countries' blood. She got French citizenship just in the year 2000. SwarnaDwipa (talk) 10:55, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
