Wow, you guys! LeAnn Rimes just did her first interview since she’s been “out” of “rehab,” isn’t that great? She talks about a lot of important stuff, like turning 30, being in therapy, and how hard Twitter can be. Let’s just go ahead and hear what she has to say, all right?
On therapy: “I’ve been in therapy my whole life. I like going. I like being able to have that third-party input and someone to listen that has nothing to do with your life. Everyone has an opinion of how I am and how I should be, and now I’m focusing on how I want to be.”
On her age: “I had some wonderful times in my 20s, but your 20s are hard. It was a lot of learning experiences … and a lot were thrown at me publicly. I was ready to embrace 30.”
On social networking: “I think it’s really hard to deal with Twitter and Facebook and all these social media outlets. And it’s hard to take it day after day of reading and seeing things that someone you don’t even know says about you. As much as you said you don’t want it to penetrate, it does, because you’re human.”
On tape: “I have felt like I’ve had a piece of tape over my mouth the last four years. I wanted to start the next 30 years of my life on a great foot.”
“It’s really hard to deal with Twitter,” LeAnn actually said those words with her mouth. You know how you make Twitter easier? You stop using Twitter. Because no one needs to use Twitter. But do you know how many tweets LeAnn has made in the past day? Eighteen. Eighteen whole tweets. That’s more tweets than I’ve tweeted all year. If it’s hard, and you don’t need to do it, then don’t do it. Why do I even have to explain this?
Also, what’s she talking about with the “I have felt like I’ve had a piece of tape over my mouth the last four years”? Obviously, I thought she was talking about Eddie Cibrian, but they only started hooking up in 2009. OR DID THEY?
