Kathie Lee & Hoda: Carla Bruni Little French Songs Review
Singer, songwriter, and former First Lady of France, Carla Bruni was a highly sought-after model in fashion, but she then left that profession for the recording studio, where she found great success. She recently released her fourth album, Little French Songs. Besides the album, Carla also has a child to attend to, and one might wonder how she found time to write the songs for the album. She said that she did much of the writing at night because her children are in bed, and the silence allows her to concentrate. The writing part is actually the easy part—touring is what Carla really struggles with because she has to leave her daughter behind, but she’s thinking of actually taking her with her this time, after she’s done promoting the album.
Today Show: Nicolas Sarkozy Inspired Little French Songs
Carla Bruni’s husband, Nicolas Sarkozy, is actually a very good father, according to Carla. There is actually a song on Little French Songs about Nicolas, but Carla changed his name for fun. Part of this also had to do with the fact that a song named “Nicolas” was released in the 1970s, and Carla didn’t want to do the same thing over again, especially considering that it was a hit. In the song, Carla actually calls Nicolas a pirate, which she said has to do with the fact that, despite his fancy suit and tie that he wears, he has a bit of a pirate lurking underneath it all. What she meant by this is anyone’s guess.
KLG & Hoda: Carla Bruni Glad To No Longer Be First Lady
Though Carla Bruni said that being the French First Lady was a great experience and a fantastic time of her life, for the good of her family, Carla is glad that it’s over. Being in any high-power political chair puts you under the microscope of the hard press and tabloids alike, leaving little to no room to live a private life outside of the public eye.
Also, there is a lot less stress on Nicolas Sarkozy, which is not healthy to live under for long periods of time for both physical and mental health reasons. With the current president, François Gérard Georges, getting low approval ratings, perhaps Nicolas may be taking power again?
