French First Lady "Hurt"

| Filed under: Music MinutePolitikFrancophilia

Looks like the French and Americans might have something in common. Gasp!

As we mentioned Thursday, Carla Bruni, the French first lady, is getting no love from music critics.

Her most recent album, out on Monday in the U.K., is being totally panned by the British media!

Well, it seems like some of the French public isn't so supportive of a pop star first lady.

Bruni told the French media, "Of course it hurts me, but I also find it quite natural. It's understandable that people can't help mixing up my work as an artist and my function. Maybe they feel offended by the fact the head of state's wife should make a record."

Yeah, singing songs about cocaine and lovers…not very first lady-like!

'Americans' would lose their shit if Michele Obama (or Cindy McCain) did that!

    Have you even heard this woman!? Her music is BRILLIANT. It's so beautiful. She was a folk singer before she got married, and she still is. BFD. Let her do what she is meant to do…which is clearly sing. You make it sound like she fucked her way into a high profile marriage, and JUST NOW decided she wants to be a singer…which is total bullshit. She has been around for a while, and if you had any sense at all, you'd be promoting the shit out of her instead of whatever the hell tranny techno crap you keep telling us is so hot.

    Listen to her before you judge her: search for her on myspace music and LISTEN. You will be very pleasantly surprised.

    MICHELLE never felt proud of her country. I think that is a lot worst than to sing a bad song.

  24. marie says – reply to this


    24

    whatever. her first album was genius and the second was real good. she is a talented woman and she happens to be married to the president of France. big fucking deal. she was a singer before she met him. I also think she looks smokin' hot. not a big fan of the person, but still a talented artist

    Stupid bitch,go do some charity work,shes nothin but a fame whore

  26. have says – reply to this


    26

    Hey! There's an idea! Why don't you go do some charity work if the idea is so appealing to you? Instead of sitting on your ass bitching about some chick in France you've never met? In fact, why don't we ALL get lives and go do something more important than spending our time on the internet gossiping about people we will never know…like our lives are so much better…roflmao.

    I'm out.

    I don't like her at all but to be fair before she was first lady she used to be a singer and critics loved her music now that she is first lady they hate it.
    I think they only hate it because of her function.

    Just a word to say that there's no equivalent for a "First Lady" in France. A President's wife has now no particuliar status. The expression "Première Dame de France" is really new and came with many other nonsenses, brought by Sarko

    i own one of her albums and it is really good…. people need to settle the fuck down.



  38. 38

    Yeah, that would be like having Madonna in the White House.
    Which….actually….would be better than Michelle "James Brown" Obama.

    Boohoo! Cry me a river. People don't like your shitty music. There's 10% unemployment in France and she has time to sing about drugs and ex lovers. Shouldn't she be busy helping education and children's cause.

    i think she's great. I really like her.

    She is a whore. She broke people's families and stole husbands. She had an affair with her boyfriend's son who was married at the time. The son dumped her wife for this crack whore.

    The difference is that she was a singer BEFORE she became the first lady of france….

    She looks like Shannon Doherty in that photo. The french president married a Brenda lookalike - lol

  44. Ti-Q says – reply to this


    44

    Calling her a "singer" is a gross exaggeration. She does not sing, she talks in a breathless way to suggest that she is sexy. Only men love to listen to her records. She is a tease. She would not give the time of day to Sarko if he was not President of France. I predict this marriage won't last long. I give it 2 years and he will marry again 3 months later.

  45. jaye says – reply to this


    45

    She's just singing about what she knows. They knew what she was before he married her.

    nice line at the end perez, yeah i cant imagine a first lady here trying to be relevant in any kind of entertainment field- this society (and perez) would have a big shit talkin' party… even if the material was good!

    We don't do things like that here in America! Our First Ladies understand the honor of their place in our history. Michelle Obama making a record! Hmmm. Let me think. The name of her record that no one will buy will be "Oh how I love to look angry."

    Check out "Quelqu'un M'a Dit". It is BY FAR one of the most beautiful songs I have on my iPod.

  62. Lea says – reply to this


    62

    I find it very amusing that she is so adamant that the critics are bad only because of her position and not because her album is not that great! Her first album was a success thanks to 1 or 2 songs, her second album was a big flop… She is not bad, but not great! She's probably been busier working on her image than on her album, that's it…. Why not accepting the fact that, maybe the critics are being fair and objective?

  63. XFVOC says – reply to this


    63

    Some of her stuff is very good. She has a style all her own, and probably has a niche audience. I wouldn't sweat the fact that it wasn't mainstream fare. A lot of the mainstream fare appeals to the middle of the curve, if you know what I mean. I hope she just keeps doing what she's doing. I checked out some of her tunes on Youtube, and quite liked a few of them . Music is its own reward intrinsically, and external reward comes less often than not, and is more about who you know. If Mutt Lange produced her, she'd probably sell millions.

    I heard a bit but it was absolute crap. Yet another panting Francaise in boringly acceptable popish bla bla… though she did manage to upset the Columbians by singing something about "your as adictive as heroine or Columbian cocaine" (or something like that)… bet that wasn't about her current husband. ;-)
