CAR­RIE PRE­DICTED HER DEATH: JAMES BLUNT

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

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.
