It is my opinion that Carla Bruni is using her position to gain publicity that exceeds that which her talent alone would command. She is 15 in the album sales this week, but she's appearing on French TV in an afternoon show , talking about her meeting with the Dalai Lama (which she only got due to her political connections) whilst those artists above her (Duffy for example) are notably absent from the show.
She got French nationality with a click of her husband's sticky fingers and I had to battle for a year to get it. Hmmm, I wonder why.
That old lie, Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.
