LeAnn Rimes: I’ve never been anything but professional onstage

Yesterday, video of LeAnn Rimes completely tanking thirteen-year-old Carly Rose Sonenclar‘s performance of “How Do I Live” on The X Factor hit the web, and the blagonets descended upon her the way LeAnn descends upon a solitary Tic Tac. Well, after “someone” who is apparently not affiliated with LeAnn released a statement to TMZ, Leann took to Twitter (as usual) to add more crazy to this.

“In my 18 years of performing, I have never been anything but professional onstage. It is a shame that gossip and lies are overshadowing the performance of Carly, a very talented young girl. And while I have not given any media outlet a quote, if you want one, here it is “It was an amazing opportunity to share this experience with Carly and I know I’ll be watching for her to win tonight.”

Oh this bitch … if you want to talk about someone overshadowing the poor girl’s performance, maybe you should take a look at your weird caterwauling singing last night. Seriously, what was that? It was like watching 30 Rock‘s Jenna Maroney try to pull focus at a grade school Christmas pageant.
