Unfamiliar with the notorious N.I.C? You might not want to be so quick to veto French director Xavier Durringer's The Conquest this weekend then. The movie chronicles the rise to power of Nicolas Sarkozy, President of the French Republic. The guy is far more interesting than your average kinky politician (and trust us, the average kinkiness has gotten quite weird over the years): For starters, he's got a very public appreciation of the finer things in life, from gear to women, earning him the nickname "President Bling Bling." (Dated, yes, but have you seen that Patek Phillipe?)
In addition to staying waist-deep in unattainable timepieces and women, Sarkozy has been at the center of more controversies than DMX, getting himself in deep shit with significant others, the French Republic, and even MGMT (yes, that MGMT), which we'll delve into shortly. However, the last thing the man can be accused of is being soft. Unlike more timid souls, living under a microscope hasn't made the French first-in-command tame; on the contrary, Sarkozy at times seems to enjoy living life for the cameras. Love him or hate him, it's hard to deny that the French leader is a certified G. Those in need of further proof can feel free to check out our list of 10 Reasons Nicolas Sarcozy is Gangsta.
