Blonde is the sixth studio album of the French recording artist Alizée. It was released on 23 June 2014. The first single ("Blonde") was released 18 March 2014. The album was released only one year and three months after her fifth album, 5. The speeding of the release cycle was caused by Alizée's success on French television show Danse avec les stars, which fourth season she won on 23 November 2013. The album received mixed critics and was not a commercial success.

Blonde is the second studio album by female Quebec singer-songwriter Béatrice Martin, released under her stage name Cœur de pirate, on November 7, 2011.
