Women were in the spotlight on the set of 8.30pm on a Sunday. This November 20, Laurent Delahousse welcomed three celebrities with very different backgrounds: an author, a singer and an influencer, even if the culture unites them. Angèle opened the evening with a captivating live performance, before joining the other two guests. Successful writer, Amélie Nothomb, was also in attendance to discuss her fabulous career. Her pen is known around the world, as is her unique personality. Furthermore, as she explained on the set of France 2, the Belgian writer does not have a mobile phone … Thus, she does not know the medium of influence and met Léna Situations, also invited at “8.30pm on Sundays”.
VIDEO – (Re)discover key moments in Laurent Delahousse’s life:
Three women with three incredible careers have thus gathered around Laurent Delahousse. And if this trio has charmed viewers, some Internet users have nevertheless deplored the presence of Léna Situations on the set of France 2. The young woman, who has just celebrated her 25th birthday, is one of the most loved and well-known French influencers. From her real name, Léna Mahfouf, this content creator is followed by more than ten million subscribers on her social networks. A number that makes your head spin. It was in 2012 that the young woman launched her first blog, but it was only in 2017 that her success became dazzling, thanks to her videos shared on YouTube.
“RIP public service”
In 2019, Léna Situations won the title of French pop culture influencer at the People’s Choice Awards. A year later, she released her book “Toujours plus”, which was a hit in her bookstores. In 2021, the young woman appears in the Forbes 30 Under 30 France ranking, in the Cinema and Entertainment category. However, it is precisely in 2022 that one of her dreams comes true. Léna Mahfouf is invited to the prestigious Met Gala in New York. She is the very first French influencer to tread the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of the most loved personalities in the fashion world. Additionally, she is also a businesswoman herself, since she launched her own clothing brand the same year.
Despite all these accolades, the career of Léna Situations divides Internet users. For some of her, her success is not “legitimate”, just like her presence on the set of “Sunday at 8:30”. They particularly regretted the fact that she was “compared” to Amélie Nothomb by the presenter.
“A common point: culture”
A debate was born on Twitter this Sunday 20 November. While Internet users have expressed their incomprehension at the presence of Léna Situations on the set of Laurent Delahousse, others have welcomed this exchange between the three women and this “mix of generations”. Furthermore, many Twitos were thrilled by the idea of finding Léna Mahfouf and Angèle again in the same programme.
Despite the criticisms of some Internet users, benevolence reigned on the set of “Sunday at 20:30”. And this “respectful” exchange was appreciated by viewers.
