She sings beautifully, but she’s full of opinions, too. Then moment she sets down her guitar, the chic hip singer who writes such tender lyrics steps up onto a soapbox. Politics, society, education, culture, immigration, and justice all make her leap from her reserved artistic persona. Just try to meet her on this terrain and you’ll be sheltering yourself from her claws. Behind her velvet smile that has brought her high fashion houses, celebrity lovers and Christlike rock stars, a smile that has conquered the general public with a few tender, whispered lines, there is voice that carries and words that upturn conventions.
Long before becoming the second wife of Nicolas Sarkozy, Carla Bruni has always been politically committed, with bold, decisive opinions.
This book explores her rise, her father who raised her, her lots, her mother Marisa, the threats of terrorism in Italy, her exile to Paris, her love of French, the first books she read in the language, her relationship with herself, with her body, with nudity, with beauty, the infatuation of the fashion scene, the world of top models, young celebrity, rockstar lovers like Bertignac, Clapton, and Jagger, the paparazzi, sex, drugs, the death of her beloved brother Virginia, AIDS, the first words she wrote for Julien Clerc, the phenomenal success of “Quelqu’un m’a dit,” life on tour, the man of her life Nicolas Sarkozy, fidelity, their daughter Giulia, her shift from the left to the right, life at the Élysée, the violence of politics, the flatterers and the traitors, the contempt of François Hollande, the support of Valérie Trierweller, her husband’s biggest challenges while in office, Khadafi, Takedine, the Fillon affair, Brigitte and Emmanuel Macron, the attacks her son has endured, and music, always and again… such themes are tackled openly in this work, those of a life of extreme shadows and brilliance.
