Oops, LeAnn Rimes Forgot the Only Reason She's Still Famous!

If you guys have any doubts to what that one reason is, to the single, solitary thing that makes LeAnn Rimes relevant today, let's just say this: in this new interview, she said the word "drama" eight times. She said the word "music" twice. You do the math. It's not that hard.
And she doesn't even tell the truth and say that she's thankful for her ability to create drama because without it, no one would want to buy her new album. No, instead she says things like this:
"The thing is, Eddie and I are very proud of the home and family that we have. We don't like drama, and we don't want to be part of it. We can't control the people around us, but we can control we handle drama, and we've made a very peaceful life for ourselves and I'm very happy with that. There's a lot of drama on the outside and we've finally learned how to not let it in."
"I definitely have to bite my tongue a lot of the time. There's a fine line because I don't want to be run over and I do stand up for myself. But I also don't want to feed into the drama. I did say, 'I do music, not drama." I don't need drama to have a career. And so I plan on, as much as possible, to not feed into it. Like I said, there will be moments I don't hold back from standing up for myself."
"It's really hard to communicate when you're afraid that someone is going to take something, twist it and use it in the press. There's a reason why I don't -- we don't -- speak right now. And I hope that things like someone tweeting about not being able to get ahold of their kids will subside at some point and not be used as drama."
And, of course, this:
"It's time for the conversation to change. I do music. I don't blow up drama for the sake of a career."
Can someone just let her know that that's exactly what she's been doing, blowing up drama for the sake of a career? That's what her new album is about, and that's why people care. Is this really a difficult concept to grasp? Does she seriously not get it? Man, we all knew she was dumb for getting with Eddie Cibrian in the first place, but this just takes the big, dumb cake.
