Quite, quite a jouncy one, this one.

 

She’s out with album no.3, her first as France’s first lady. Carla Bruni’s album releases in Europe this week though it’s already been available free on her website, giving critics like this radio DJ in London a chance to make up their minds.

 

It does sound a little bit, a bit kind of almost * my first album. I mean, it’s a horrible thing to say, cause she, I mean, she is good, but it’s not my kind of thing, and I think because of the style of the music, I think she will be in for a hard time with the critics.

 

It’s not easy pleasing critics when you’re Carla Bruni, the former model turned singer, turned presidential spouse1. It’s taken months for the French public, initially2 skeptical3 of her colorful past, to warm to her.

 

The fact that she’s turned to singing, the fact that she’s had so many liaisons4, and the fact that she’s got such an exquisite5 sense of style, the mixture of all these things is very potent6, and the French, who do feel defensive7 culturally these days, are only too pleased to boost her and also show great affection for her.

 

Her popularity is rubbing off on her husband. His approval ratings have improved since the two got married in February and there’s often more attention on her than him during trips abroad. So what kind of relationship do the couple share? Her song may hold a clue. In a song called You Are My Drug, Bruni sings of a passion “more lethal8 than heroin9 from Afghanistan and more dangerous than Columbian coke.” In another, she croons “You are my lord, my orgy.” She could be thinking about her husband, but the first lady isn’t telling. She says most of the album was written before she met the president.

 

It’s a bit early to tell if this album will do as well as her fist one, which sold around two million copies, or better than the second, which sold only around 400,000. But the first lady says she’s not doing it for fame or fortune. She’s decided10 not to hold concerts for this album, and royalties11 will go to charity.
