Le Mariage

Who knew? It felt like in the last few months that the French people I knew weren't pleased with the Carla Bruni business, I think in part because they were offended that the president's love life was being covered so thoroughly by the press. (Although it was Sarkozy who apparently invited photographers on his beach vacation). This has unfortunately been contributing to his l'impopularité.

And my Italian friend Silvia has been making fun of her singing style, although truth be told, I don't remember why. Perhaps because, as you can see in the clip below, she is a little on the breathy side. Both Silvia and Carla Bruni are natives of Torino, so Silvia has been hearing her music for a long time.

Some of the more cynical among us, around the lunch table, voiced the opinion that she was just dating him in order to boost sales of her next record. But, it seems that true love has prevailed! Will the French embrace the new Madame Sarkozy? Will this rally his low approval rating? Time will tell.
