Carla Bruni sings of her 30 lovers in new albumJune 12th, 2008 - 12:35 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 12 (ANI): France’s new first lady Carla Bruni Sarkozy has revealed details of her long-awaited new album ‘Comme si de rien n’etait” (As if nothing had happened), in which she sings of having 30 lovers and has compared her husband President Nicolas Sarkozy to class A drugs.
In one of the songs, the Italian former models lyrics say: “I am a child. Despite my forty years. Despite my thirty lovers. A child.”
Among the 14 tracks is a song called Ma Came (My Junk) - equating her intense love to a class A drug which she wrote two years before she met Sarkozy, it is nevertheless dedicated to her husband.
The 40-year-old sings: “You are my junk. More deadly than Afghan heroin. More dangerous than Colombian white (powder). My guy, I roll him up and smoke him.”
The first single to be released from the album will be called L’Amoureuse (Woman in Love), although it is unclear whether this refers to her whirlwind romance with Sarkozy.
The album, due out on July 21, also includes the song Peche d’Envie (Sinned by Desire), co-written with philosopher Raphael Enthoven, the father of her son.
The only cover is of the ballad You Belong To Me, which contains clear references to exotic places she and the French President visited last year, notably the Pyramids, where they were photographed strolling hand in hand.
Her work was reviewed by Le Figaro, which dubbed the album the most awaited recording in France for decades.
It said that the album successfully merged the magic of her first songs with the artistic integrity of the less accessible second album.
She has toned down the folk style in favour of the chanson francaise and the flamboyant sixties. In a word, it’s less America, more France, more Beatles, Le Figaro added.
The album also underlines Bruni’s desire to maintain her independence despite her official position.
“Let them curse me and damn me. I don’t give a damn,” she sings. (ANI)
