Love is the drug on French first lady's new album
Thursday, 12 June 2008

REUTERS, PARIS - France's first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy sings of 30 lovers and hard drugs on a new album that she insists was not inspired by her whirlwind romance and marriage to President Nicolas Sarkozy.

m is acute due to Bruni's romance with Sarkozy, Dicale lauded it as a "perfect success" in terms of music.

In an interview also published on Wednesday in celebrity magazine VSD, Bruni says she is painfully aware of the pitfalls of her dual role as artist and first lady.

"Perceptions will not only be musical. Criticism, which is useful, risks being blurred, for good or for bad, by the fact that I am the president's wife," she told the magazine.

"I have had to protect myself. I made the album in a bubble with my musical entourage," she said.

Yet she appears confident enough in song, if not in life.

"They can curse me, they can damn me, I don't care," she sings in another one of the songs, quoted by Le Figaro.
