London, Dec 28 (ANI): Before getting married, French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy told hubby Nicolas that she had no intention of giving up her music career just because she was to become the wife of the president.
While in an interview, the beauty, who recently turned 41, revealed "I said to Nicolas, 'I cannot choose between you and my music, it's ridiculous. I'm not going to drop my job and iron my husband's shirts for the next four years.' So of course he didn't ask me to choose, I decided to keep my job."
"I'm glad he didn't ask me to choose. It would have been a wrench and a bad way of starting love. Love has nothing to do with sacrifice," she said.
When asked about her and French President's state visit to Britain in March, Bruni says she was extremely nervous on the flight across the Channel, reports TimesOnline.
"I was pretty terrified in the plane. I was scared, like stage fright before a concert. It could have been a nightmare but it became a dream," she said.
Bruni confided that she was "paralysed by shyness" as a child and admits to having "a great need to be recognised". (ANI)
