10 questions with James Blunt (2006)

by Nancy J Price Admit it: Almost every woman wants to be told that she’s beautiful. Bonus points are given for putting the words into a song. And when such adulation comes from a man who also proclaims, “My life is brilliant”? She’ll probably think she’s got herself a...
