These days, LeAnn Rimes is best known as the failed reality star who stole Brandi Glanville’s husband.
There was a time, however, when LeAnn was one of the biggest names in country music.
In fact, when she was just 14, LeAnn had a massive hit with her cover of Bill Mack’s 1958 single “Blue.”
It looked like the beginning of a legendary career.
Instead, it was the beginning of … a semi-decent Instagram following? A lifetime of going all Single White Female on your husband’s ex? Copping a “Kardashian attitude” with the few people still willing to pay to see you perform?
We’re not really sure how you would describe whatever the hell it is LeAnn does now, but we know she wants us to focus on her music … and her career comeback. (Ed. note: LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!)
Last week marked the 20th anniversary of LeAnn’s version of “Blue” and she marked the occasion in a couple of sad ways on social media.
First, she posted this photo:
“Today is the first day of my next 20 years! I am declaring now that this next 20 will be even better than the first. I feel it, I believe it. I am so beyond grateful for music and for having the ability and opportunities to to still create it 20 years later.
“There is so much goodness coming and I can’t wait to share it all with you soon. I am grateful, I am grateful, I am grateful. Here’s to EPIC MUSIC. Here’s to EPIC LOVE. Here’s to an EPIC JOURNEY!”
Yeah, we’re sure EPIC things lie ahead. Sorry, did that sound sarcastic?
As though that wasn’t pitiable enough LeAnn posted this photo of herself with Britney Spears back when they both had bright futures ahead of them:
Yes, it’s safe to say these two careers went in different directions.
These days Britney has a lucrative Vegas residency, and LeAnn can’t keep a reality show on VH1.
Oh, well. Here’s to the next 20 years, right? Um…right, guys?!
