In a series devoted to the rising young stars of tomorrow, the program "" on France 2 devoted Thursday evening a documentary to Kylian Mbappé, in which the PSG striker is doing a lot, especially on the question of his celebrity. Unknown to the general public before its explosion in Monaco during the 2016-2017 season, the French international has become an international icon in no time.
"When I go outside, I start a crowd movement. I can no longer be a mister," admits @KMbappe. At 21, how do you manage such an overwhelming celebrity? #EnvoyeSpecial pic.twitter.com/XvR73LGPJr- Special Envoy (@EnvoyeSpecial) January 23, 2020
"When I go outside, I start a crowd movement," he laughs. I can't even go to the supermarket anymore. For example, I don't know, if I forgot the Gruyère cheese, I can't go get it like that at Carrefour. They are going to close the Carrefour… Just for a gruyère (laughs)! I can no longer be Mister. "
This extraordinary lifestyle by definition, the world champion perfectly assumes. "That's how it is, you have to accept. This is the life I wanted, so when it's what you want, you accept your situation. I will not say that it is obvious every day but I wanted to, explains the Parisian. Sometimes it's not obvious because most people who have known this notoriety, they have known it at an advanced age. Me, to know it like that in the midst of adolescence, there are many things that normal adolescents will have done and that I will not have done. And vice versa.
