LONDON, Sept. 17 (UPI) -- French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy sang on an episode of the British music show "Later with Jools Holland," which also featured an appearance by Metallica.

Bruni-Sarkozy, 40, was a model and recording artist before she married French President Nicolas Sarkozy last February. She released her third album "Comme Si De Rien N'Etait" this past summer.

The BBC quoted Bruni-Sarkozy as telling interviewer Holland her head-of-state husband is "very kind" when it comes to her music.

"I play it at home and I disturb him with it in the middle of the night," Bruni-Sarkozy said.

Holland asked the first lady what it was like juggling her roles as singer-songwriter and president's wife. Bruni-Sarkozy recently met Pope Benedict XVI, Queen Elizabeth II and the Dalai Lama while traveling with her husband.

"I don't really mix them up -- I separate (the roles,)" Bruni-Sarkozy said. "I play my music and then I go with my husband when he needs me."

Bruni-Sarkozy was seen on the live television program Tuesday tapping her foot and clapping as the heavy metal band Metallica played songs from its 12th album "Death Magnetic."
