LeAnn Rimes Performs on ‘The View’ Says She’s Approaching Personal Topics Through Her Music
It's been pretty well documented that LeAnn Rimes has had a rough couple of years, to a point that she made Honorable Mention in my list of celebrity messes. But Rimes appears to have turned things around in recent months. The country singer was a guest on ABC's 'The View', where she sang 'Just a Girl Like You' from her new album 'Spitfire', and talked about mess that is her relationship Brandi Glanville, her current husband's ex-wife.
LeAnn met her husband, Eddie Cibrian, under odd circumstances. She and Cibrian were both married to other people before they left their partners to start a life together. Cibrian's ex, Brandi Glanville of 'Real Housewives' fame, hasn't been very accepting over the situation, calling Rimes "unstable", among other things.
Along with her live performance, Rimes talked with 'The View' host Barbara Walters regarding the state of her personal life. LeAnn made it clear that she's glad people are starting to move on.
"I'm glad the conversation is changing. Yes, I'm approaching these topics through my music, but at the same time, it's not just the specific situations. These are real human emotions. I've been in the business for 20 years, and for the first time, I'm approaching music from a different perspective. People have always known me for my voice, but they have never really gotten to know me."
'Spitfire' is by far Rimes' most personal album to date. Several of her songs speak directly to the events that have unfolded in her life, like 'Just a Girl Like You', the song she performed on 'The View', which seems to be speaking to Glanville, and 'Borrowed', which gives addresses the emotional rollercoaster Rimes was on during her affair with Cibrian.
"I definitely take my responsibility for this side of things. [In the tabloids] I definitely that it's been a very skewed version of the story and it's gone on for too long."
LeAnn Rimes certainly appears to have her life completely back on track, and we all wish her the best with the new CD. Well, everybody but the tabloids, I'm sure.
