There has been a lot of news coverage of the state visit of French president Nicolas Sarkozy and his new wife Carla Bruni to the UK.
It just so happens that pictures of a nude Ms Bruni are being sold at auction to coincide with the visit and she she has also been accused of cashing in in other ways.
Now, clearly Carla Bruni is a model and there are bound to be pictures of her in various provocative poses, something that’s not exactly a surprise.
But I wish more people knew about her fantastic and burgeoning music career. Last year, she put out a beautiful album called Promises on which she puts famous poetry to music.
To give you an idea of how lovely and dreamy she sounds, this is I Felt My Life With Both My Hands, her version of the Emily Dickinson poem.
