LeAnn Rimes Steals Everyone’s Thunder by Calling Herself ‘Pathetic’
Lest we all forget, LeAnn Rimes used to be known for her singing. Then she had an affair with the then-married Eddie Cibrian, married him herself, and became the unhinged tabloid queen she is today. (It’s the stuff of modern-day fairy tales, really.)
Now she’s found a way to merge her worlds — by writing a song about the whole mess.
She shared the ditty, entitled ‘Borrowed,’ on Tuesday night’s ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.’
“The song is about … the situation,” Rimes told Leno. And in case any of us thought her song was about a ‘Jersey Shore’ cast member, she added, “I did go through a very public affair … with Eddie, who is now my wonderful husband.”
Then she went and stole every entertainment writer’s thunder: “I call myself pathetic in the song because at that moment I was pathetic.”
It’s been a pretty long “moment,” LeLe.
“A lot of people who have been in that situation can relate to that … It kills me to give that up. It’s a very intimate look into a very rough moment of my life,” she said, as though she hasn’t been using Twitter to shine a glaring spotlight on her life’s “intimate moments” for years.
Here are some of the lyrics from ‘Borrowed’ (hope you haven’t eaten recently): “I know you’re not mine, only borrowed / Cause you already belong to her, at least you said so / But I’m starting to believe it ain’t the whole truth / As we’re lying side by side, I get the whole you.”
We’re tired of writing about LeAnn Rimes now, so we’ll just let the always awesome Jennifer Lawrence have the last word.
