CARRIE PREDICTED HER DEATH: JAMES BLUNT
Singer James Blunt (right) has revealed that he stayed at Hollywood veteran Carrie Fisher’s (inset) home while recording his first album Back to Bedlam.
The 42-year-old opened up about his special relationship with the actor, who died on December 27, last year. “Fisher was my American mother, and an inspiration,” said Blunt. He recalled recording his hit, Goodbye My Lover using a piano in Fisher’s bathroom — and Debbie Reynolds, who passed away at age 84 just one day after her daughter, steering clear of him unless she had applied a full face of makeup. Blunt said the name of his 2004 debut album was influenced by the experience — because he “lived in a madhouse with her.” And while staying at her place, he also experienced something strange as he said that Fisher even made an eerie prediction about her own death at that time.
“She put a cardboard cutout of herself as Leia outside my room, with her date of birth and date of death on her forehead. I’m trying to remember what the date was, because it was around now — and I remember thinking it was too soon,” Blunt added.
