The aging Lothario, 75, released a CD of songs that he has written, performed by his good friend, singing star Mariano Apicella. The songs on the album "tell of tormented love, featuring lyrics such as 'another day of wind and rain, another night without you,' or 'Stay, and leave me your heart.'"
Berlusconi was forced to step down from his scandal-plagued post and is currently on trial for paying for sex with a 17-year-old girl at a dinner party he hosted at his opulent mansion. Some believe the album release is the outrageous billionaire's way of having the last word as the new Italian minister Mario Monti is set to take over his position
There were cheers from large crowds throughout Italy when Berlusconi's departure from the position was announced last week, as Italy struggles with deepening austerity measures brought on by the global economic super-crisis and the worrisome European debt situation.
The self-described Latin lover, who once boasted he single-handedly kept large groups entertained for hours on end with his smooth charm and silky voice, wrote the lyrics for the sappily-titled album True Love.
I'm sure a nationwide concert tour is in the planning stages, so break out the cigarette lighters and prepare to swoon!
