Anglo-French singer and actress Jane Birkin gave an interview to the French regional newspaper Nice Matin on March 8th, in which she briefly talks about the museum Maison Gainsbourg (opening in 2023?, 5 bis rue de Verneuil, in Paris):

"Charlotte is the one behind it all. I've lived there for 20 years but never came back. The museum is so beautiful, people will be amazed. Amazed about its uniqueness, its artistic aspect, because everything has been designed by Serge. It was already a kind of museum when we were living there. The place was a bit tricky to live in, but aesthetically, it was exactly as he wanted."

Bonus: the video of Charlotte Gainsbourg's "Lying with you" (a song released in 2017) was filmed there and it's actually a great way to have a better look at Serge Gainsbourg's old home.
