Bruni Inspired By Dying Brother
ERIC CLAPTON and SIR MICK JAGGER's former model girlfriend CARLA BRUNI's new album is a poetic tribute to her dying brother. The stunning 39-year-old's new release No Promises, on which she puts 11 of her favourite poems to music, was recorded as her cancer-stricken sibling was fighting for his life. Bruni says, "He (brother) was so strong, so graceful in the face of death, but it was so terrible... I felt I really needed to write myself out of something."
