Marie-France Gaîté (born 17 July 1941 in Lyon, France – died 18 January 1968), better known as Gribouille, was a singer.

As a teenager, she suffered from mental disorder and for a time was confined against her will to a psychiatric hospital in Lyon. With medication, she was able to function well enough to leave her hometown and moved on to Paris. There, she met Jean Cocteau who got her work singing in a cabaret. Composer Michel Breuzard wrote songs for her, and in 1966 she recorded several 45 rpm records and an album.

She died in Paris, France, of mixing alcohol and medications, at the age of 26. She was buried in the Cimetière de Bagneux in Montrouge, near Paris.
