LeAnn Rimes is Classy, Tries to Outsing Her Biggest Fan

Oh man, guys, this is rich. This young girl, if you don’t already know who she is, is Carly Rose Sonenclar, who was in the ‘X-Factor‘ finals. As you can see, or hear, she’s singing LeAnn Rimes’ “How Do I Live,” and as the theme of the evening was “Duets,” it was only natural for LeAnn to hop up on stage and sing along with Carly Rose. Note that I said along and not over, because that’s exactly what LeAnn did.

… AND OH MY GOD. Literally, within the first three seconds of LeAnn entering center stage, the shit was f-cking bizarre as hell. Immediately, LeAnn started bleating the song (like a goat), and throwing diva fingers all around like it was going out of style. Then she awkwardly tried to grab the girl’s hand, and then attempted—unsuccessfully—to hug her. A minute in, LeAnn starts singing to poor Carly Rose, who looks mad uncomfortable and who then gives a quick side-eye to the camera. The crowd finally roars when Carly’s cued back in, and LeAnn’s left in the dust (yeah, as if she’d allow that to happen—LeAnn just got louder as the song progressed). Here’s the telltale sign that something was definitely amiss: even Britney looked confused as to what the hell was happening.

Forgetting the words and slurring the ones she got right notwithstanding, the performance was a f-cking bust. I’m still in awe of how this all went down without it being cut from the show somehow or another.

Was she drinking? Yeah, I’d say so. I’d actually go as far as to say that LeAnn probably got nice and sauced before the performance and this God-awful clip was the end result. And how embarrassing for everyone involved, you know?

BREAKING: LeAnn Rimes Is Obsessed with Brandi Glanville

I know, this is really shocking. All this time I had assumed that LeAnn Rimes never even spent that much time thinking about Brandi Glanville, her new husband’s ex-wife, but apparently I was wrong. Apparently LeAnn thinks about her a lot.

Since hooking up with Eddie Cibrian more than three years ago, LeAnn Rimes has been at constant odds with the actor’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, and an insider tells Star magazine the long-running feud has worn the singer down to the point that she’s hanging on Brandi’s every word, and emulating her in any way possible.

“It’s out of control, the way LeAnn stalks Brandi,” an insider tells Star. “Even LeAnn’s friends think it’s weird, but she can’t seem to help herself.

“If Brandi tweets a picture of herself in a bikini, LeAnn does the same thing. If Brandi talks about becoming a dermatologist, LeAnn suddenly starts talking about it on Twitter…it’s really strange!”

Brandi, 40, has picked up on the Single White Female vibes from LeAnn — and blasted the 30-year-old singer for her copycat ways.

“Someone is obviously stalking my facebook & copies my every move, even my bikini pics!!” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills beauty tweeted last year after LeAnn kept putting up suspiciously similar pics to the ones she was posting. “Creepy! I said it once I will say it again STALKER!!”

Brandi’s longtime confidante Jennifer Gimenez tells Star she believes LeAnn’s severe lack of self-esteem is the root cause of her unusual behavior.

“She copies everything that Brandi does,” Jennifer says. “She even exchanged her black Range Rover for a white one because that’s what Brandi drives! If Brandi gets a new bag or shoes, within a week you will see LeAnn with the exact same thing.”

The issues run so deep, insiders say, that LeAnn even seeks out the same professionals Brandi employs to keep up with her longtime love rival.

“LeAnn used Brandi’s boob doctor, Garth Fisher; her dentist, Dr. Duane McKay; her hairstylist, Kim Vo; her dermatologist, Dr. Harold Lancer; and the same Botox guy at Dr. Applebaum’s!” the insider says. “It is disturbing – she finds out who Brandi uses, then goes out of her way to book an appointment with them herself.”

One source says the obsession is tied to LeAnn’s insecurity in her marriage to Eddie, a Hollywood hunk with a history of cheating.

“Ever since LeAnn got Eddie, all she can think about is how to keep him, and it’s making her act like a lunatic,” the source tells Star. “She has it in her head that if she looks and acts just like Brandi, Eddie won’t ever leave her.

“Which obviously makes no sense, because Eddie cheated on Brandi with LeAnn!”

Star magazine, blah blah, I know. But I don’t have any trouble believing this, and I don’t think you will either. This girl needs some help: not for anxiety, but for good old fashioned crazy. No weekends off, either.

It’s Really No Wonder That People Won’t Shut Up About LeAnn Rimes’ Affair

I mean, could it be because she, herself, can’t shut up about it? And not only can she not shut up about it in interviews, because quite honestly, it’s probably begun to perpetuate itself at this point, she can’t shut up about it in her “art,” either. You heard that right—LeAnn Rimes has written a song called ‘Borrowed’, and it’s all about … well, it’s about “borrowing” another woman’s husband. Bazinga.

In a recent appearance with Jay Leno, LeAnn talks about one of her newer songs this year,’Borrowed’, and has this to say:

“The song is about … the situation. I did go through a very public affair with Eddie, who is now my wonderful husband. The song looks into the darker moments of things. People think that it was done with complete abandonment. It wasn’t. … I call myself pathetic in the song because at that moment I was pathetic.”

Oh God.

She’s also got a personal message for Eddie’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, who asserts that LeAnn has drug abuse issues, and also issues with eating disoders:

“I should feel flattered that she thinks I’m so interesting that I can be a storyline in her show.”

Yes, imagine that—an ongoing personal anecdote that affects a person’s everyday life on a reality show. Never heard of that before, no way.

Here’s LeAnn performing her single, ‘Borrowed’. Can you even stand the angst emanating from girlfriend? I can’t (no, I really can’t).

Oh, and the lyrics in case you couldn’t understand what LeAnn was saying through all those teeth. I really only posted it for you to see her exhibition of true, raw emotion, anyway:

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

I wanna hold out, but gotta hold on,
Even though I know it’s wrong
Cause I don’t want to give you back
I don’t want to give you back
You’re the best I’ll never have
So I don’t want to give you back
But you’re borrowed

Do you tell her that you love her?
Like you do me?
Do you make love to her,
The way you make love to me?
Well I keep myself alone in case you call tonight
Its pathetic how I lie around
And wait all the damn time
It’s a short high and long low,
Every time you have to go

Cause I don’t want to give you back
I don’t want to give you back
You’re the best I’ll never have
So I don’t want to give you back
But you’re borrowed
Only borrowed

How much time is left and you don’t return?
And you don’t return?
How much time?
Oh it’s no return, no return, how much time?

I know you’re not mine, only borrowed
And I don’t want to give you back
I don’t want to give you back
You’re the best I’ll never have
So I don’t want to give you back
No I don’t want to give you back
No I don’t want to give you back
You’re the best I’ll never have
So I don’t want to give you back
But you’re borrowed, only borrowed,
Cause you’re borrowed
