Here’s a few choice quips from LeAnn’s interview, which aired earlier this morning, where everyone else is the bad guy, and she’s just the aw-shucks-who-me little girl from the country who is everyone’s whipping boy.
LeAnn on her ill-gotten gains:
“I have a great partner in crime. He’s really sweet and loving to me. We have two wonderful kids of his half the time, and I love them to death. I love that part of my life.”
And LeAnn on gaining those ill-gotten gains:
“I wasn’t sure if I was wishing myself well at the time. It was very, very difficult. Um…I wouldn’t wish it on anyone…especially in the public eye to go through all of it. I made my choices, you know? I made my choices and I’m living with them. And I also have learned from them and I’ve talked about this so much. I’ve carried a lot of guilt for a long time, I think [Dean, LeAnn's ex-husband] probably knew what it was about before I did. … But I know that…I’m not the only person that goes through this. There’s so many that do. And there’s so much on the new album that I do share.”
LeAnn on checking herself into intermittent rehab:
“I think this is the best birthday gift I could ever give myself is just to once again be honest with myself and break down the things that I’ve struggled with for so long.”
“The album’s called ‘Spitfire,’ because I literally feel like at times, I’m spitting fire.”
Oh spare me. Spare. Me.
