The other side of Carla Bruni

I had seen a nice little interview of Carla Bruni with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour and wanted to share the link for you dear friends. Carla Bruni probably must be the most beautiful and recognized former first lady anywhere though Michelle Obama is extremely charming and charismatic. The former supermodel, singer and wife of french politician Nicolas Sarkozy talks here about her musical side , her album ” Little french songs ” and her life as a first lady.  In this endearing little interview she shares her musical influences ” classic songwriters and singers as she calls them ” Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and  queen of Jazz, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. She sings few lines from her album (she calls the songs as ” frienglish” bit of french and little english guess) and  Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind”. She has a nice easy style of singing and playing guitar. Carla Bruni has  nice musical sensibilities.

I also liked what she referred to as late marriage at forty and  says “at that time of life, you wouldn’t let  such a love pass by without catching it “. She also describes her admiration for Nelson Mandela and how the tiny prison where the great man spent twenty seven years could not have allowed him to lay down properly and yet he comes out forgiving. I liked this interview and the singing is easy and endearing. She also says she is very similar to her husband and makes a reference to song ” You say ‘Potato’, I say ‘Potato’ you say ‘Tomato’, I say ‘Tomato’…” 🙂

Hope you like this little interview. Good night friends. Hope you have a nice day! Thank you!
