Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Album Slams French President Francois Hollande

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Album Slams French President Francois Hollande

By    |   Monday, 01 April 2013 03:04 PM EDT

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, the former first lady of France, launched a thinly-veiled attack on her husband's successor Francois Hollande on her new album "Little French Songs," which dropped Monday.

The singer-songwriter, wife of former president Nicolas Sarkozy, is reportedly upset with Hollande because he skipped the customary walk with the departing couple as they exited Elysee Palace in May, instead staying in the garden to pose for photos. A track on her new album, "The Penguin," is rumored to be about Hollande.

"Hey penguin, you look all alone in your garden," she sings. "If one day you cross my path, I'll teach you to kiss my hand… He takes on the airs of a king, but I know the penguin does not have the manners of a lord."

The album also includes the song "At Keith and Anita's Place," in which Bruni, a former model, talks about a day she spent with Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and his former girlfriend, Anita Pallenberg.

The album comes as her husband faces political controversy about his campaign finance activities. Sarkozy has been placed under formal investigation for claims he took financial advantage of impaired L’Oreal heiress Liliane Bettencourt during his 2007 campaign. Bettencourt, the richest woman in the world with an estimated €17 billion ($21.8 billion) fortune, has suffered from Alzheimer’s since 2006 and was placed under family guardianship in 2011.

This is Bruni’s fourth album and first since 2008. She put her musical career on hold during Sarkozy’s time in office and while she gave birth to daughter Giuliana in 2011.
