Pete Doherty Makes Friends With Carla Bruni, Talks Possible Collaboration

    In the midst of the wanderings that now comprise his life, Pete Doherty has apparently met and started a friendship with French first lady Carla Bruni. Because you’re definitely wondering, the two bonded over a mutual love of music and poetry and have reportedly discussed a future musical collaboration. Doherty is of course the mind behind the fondly remembered Libertines, and Ms. Bruni has sold over two million records in Europe. No word yet on how the French feel about this particular version of Beauty and the Beast, but maybe it will motivate Michelle Obama to devote a little more time to selling some records.
