This one’s a little stale, but really, we couldn’t let it pass. The minxy First Lady of France, Carla Bruni, is sending some shockwaves around the world with her latest album, which will be released in the U.S. this weekend as Simply (just in time for Bastille Day!)
Bruni, the famed man-eating supermodel, may have undergone a demure makeover since her marriage to Nicolas Sarkozy last spring, but her newest musical foray has the French twittering amusedly over just how wildly inappropriate the whole thing is. Sure, Bruni donned a ladylike suit for this album cover, a departure from the men’s shirt she (barely) wore for her first CD (above). But the lyrics tell another story.
Though the husky-voiced Bruni has vowed to put her music career on hold, this album was in the works before her whirlwind romance with Sarko. In one song, Ma Came (My Junk), she compares sex with Sarkozy to an illicit drug, crooning: “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 Colombian government was not amused.
