So, Wednesday night, I was going to do my normal skipping the X Factor because I just don't find it all that compelling. I had watched it a couple of times so I could get a feel for the contestants and to see Demi Lovato and Britney Spears and just so I could write about it or converse with someone in the liquor store line if it came to it. I got some texts from east coast friends that said I had to watch it Tuesday and that LeAnn Rimes was awful. Always willing to see a horrible LeAnn Rimes I tuned in and watched her get her butt handed to her on her own song by a 13 year old. Was LeAnn drunk? Maybe she was hopped up on laxatives and needed to speed things up so she could hit a bathroom. She seemed drunk or whacked out or on something. Then again, to me she always does. So, yesterday, TMZ asks for a statement and they get one from LeAnn's people. At the time, TMZ made it seem like they spoke with LeAnn directly who said she wasn't drunk and that LeAnn was trying to help 13 year old Carly Rose because she was having trouble with the song. LeAnn then said later yesterday she never gave a statement which is probably true because her spokesperson probably just speaks for her and it is far better to throw a 13 year old under the bus than your client. The problem is that everyone who watched it knows LeAnn got her butt handed to her.
What I think happened is that LeAnn was drunk or on something. She gets up on stage like she has a million times and thinks she can handle it because she is LeAnn Rimes and the kid is 13 and f**k it. Then the 13 year old starts singing great and LeAnn feels 50 years old and threatened and starts singing over the top of the kid and if she could, probably would have thrown her off the stage or at least bumped her or tripped her and then grabbed the camera and told them to follow her while she finished the song by grinding on Eddie's lap.
