LeAnn Rimes Opens Up About The Importance of Pride Celebrations (Exclusive)

LeAnn Rimes holds Pride celebrations near and dear to her heart!

The 34-year-old entertainer took part in Houston’s annual Pride celebration on Saturday (June 24) and exclusively took Just Jared behind-the-scenes.

As LeAnn got ready with her hairstylist Mateo Sifuentes, she opened up about the importance of Pride.

“A ‘Pride’ celebration is a living thing. It is breathing authenticity. It’s a space we hold for one another, a place to come into what our souls move us to be, it’s a place in love and only love,” LeAnn said.

She continued, “That’s why the LGBTQ community continues to inspire me and enliven my spirit every time I perform for them.”

LeAnn has been a longtime supporter of the LGBTQ and was even honored with the Ally for Equality Award by the Human Rights Campaign earlier this year.

    LeAnn brought the sexy to NYC!!!

    LeAnn Rimes sizzles in a sexy sheer dress as she performs live at New York City LGBT Pride – Daily Mail

    LeAnn Rimes took the stage as the headline act at PrideFest, which is part of the LGBT Pride revelries being thrown in New York City on Sunday.
    The 34-year-old smoldered in a see-through sleeveless black dress, showing off her black underwear and her enviably chiseled frame as she performed.
    Streaks of glistening black fringe lined her shoulder straps and sloped across the singer’s dress, as well as lining the eye-popping ensemble’s knee-length hem.

    Translation: Jodi Rimes is paying media outlets to write nice things about her.

  • gwen

    Translation: Jodi Rimes had a horrible show in NYC!

  • gwen

    Translation: Jodi Rimes is trying to make it sound like she is working overtime because she is a hasbeen.

  • gwen

    The only thing Jodi Rimes hold near and ear to her heart is exploiting people for her own personal gain. Other than manically crank out tweets and give interviews, what exactly has Jodi Rimes done to show

    Too funny. Jodi Rimes took JJ” behind the scenes”? So basically, Jodi Rimes paid this site to promote her concerts because she wasn’t getting any attention from major media outlets. How well did that work out for this site when Jodi Rimes treated someone to a lamb lunch?

    What does Jodi Rimes know about love when she stalked Brandi and her boyfriend to Nobu just to taunt Brandi with her kids?

    Jodi Rimes is a longterm supporter of LGBTQ? How so? What exactly has Jodi Rimes done for LGBTQ? She didn’t going to Trump and argue for their rights. Where was Jodi Rimes when Trump and the Republicans did away with the bathroom bill and made it ok for businesses to discriminate against LGBTQ? How sad that this site is promoting Jodi Rimes when she does absolutely nothing for others. So once again, Jodi Rimes is using LGBTQ to fuel her agenda.

    As for that award, Darrell Brown BOUGHT it for her. Jodi Rimes even went so far as to compare that award to winning a Grammy. How sad that they would give Jodi Rimes that award when she has promoted hatred against LGBTQ and hung out with people who trash talk LGBTQ.

    Who is that pictured with Jodi Rimes? Is that Mateo? The man who harassed Brandi? Too funny. You tell us that Jodi Rimes is all about love and then you post photos of Jodi Rimes hanging out with a man who publicly bullied Brandi?

    There are so many problems with this behind the scenes exclusive paid for hire fluffpiece. Like why did Jodi Rimes copy Brandi? Didn’t you find it odd that Mateo did Jodi Rimes hair the same way Brandi wore her hair on June 23? On June 23, Brandi wore a floral print short jumpsuit and then Jodi Rimes shows up on the weekend in a white short jumpsuit? Why is Jodi Rimes so obsessed with looking like Brandi?

    What about Eddie? He was getting very drunk at the event, yet he complained about Brandi getting drunk?

    Where was Lizzy because we know that the only way to get Eddie to NY and to attend that event, she had to bribe Eddie by letting Lizzy go.

    Mateo must secretly hate Jodi Rimes because EVERY time he does her make-up, he makes her look like man. Why did he color in her eyebrows(see photo 4). She looks like a clown.

  • gwen

    What’s Jodi Rimes to do when her concerts in Houston and NYC are complete and total failures and resulted in negative feedback due to her choice in clothing and the poor quality of her voice?

    1) Pay DM and JJ to write fluffpieces about Jodi Rimes and the clothes she wore.

    If Jodi Rimes cares about LGBTQ, then why are the 8 photos included in this write up ALL about Jodi Rimes and what she wore? So Jodi Rimes is using LGBTQ to get headlines.

  • gwen

    Jodi Rimes is posting on Eddie’s IG account again, notice how Jodi Rimes is bragging about how she set up a staged photo-op at the airport with Eddie, Kiki, Lizzy, and Mateo?

    Well, flight delayed. Bored. Here are some photos from my Hill Country ride. Enjoy!…(Colbert Voice). #delayed #needmybed-Leann impersonating Eddie

  • Nosy Parker Posie

    She really does put on a good show. And I have to admit she keeps herself in great shape so she looks good in her stage outfits. I just wish she never got involved with Ed & Brandy. I think that’s what turned Leann crazy.

    LeAnn brings the LovE and fun to MiX96.5!!

    LeAnn Rimes Had Sarah Pepper In Tears And Then Gets A Hug

    MiX96.5 – LeAnn Rimes was here in the studio on Friday before she performed at Pride on Saturday and we had a lot of fun with her. She sang “Shoop” with Lauren Kelly and was very candid in answering question from the audience.
    She then said she was going to perform a song acapalla. She said she was deciding between “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “Amazing Grace” . I knew at that moment I was gonna cry because who doesn’t cry at “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and the last time I heard “Amazing Grace” live was at my brother’s funeral. Then she said she was going to sing “Amazing Grace” I thought, I’m not gonna do it. I’m not gonna cry. So I started thinking of all the funny things, then puppies, then funny things again and finally, I gave in and the tears came down.
    Let’s be honest, I am not a hugger and very very rarely do I offer a hug but I was so moved and touched by the performance and it wasn’t sad tears. I think when a lot people hear me talk about my brother or say something about him, it’s sad. It isn’t. I actually like talking about him and having things remind me of him.
    Hence, the hug!

  • Cool Boots

    All the major news outlets are taking notice of how hot and sexy LeAnn looked during her recent tour.

    ET – LeAnn Rimes sports a sheer dress to perform at NYC’S PrideFest –See her sexy look!

    LeAnn Rimes is showing some skin!

    The 34-year-old singer performed at PrideFest on Sunday in New York City, where she took the stage in a skin-tight, sheer black ensemble. Rimes definitely appeared to enjoy herself, throwing her hands up in the air with a huge smile on her face.

  • gwen

    Too funny. Jodi Rimes and this site were promoting Jodi Rimes as a kind and loving person. So why then is Jodi Rimes on twitter TODAY taunting Brandi with her kids and bragging about the staged photo-op she set up with them?

    SO HAPPY to be home! Planning our week w/ the kiddos! So excited to see #DespicableMe3 on Friday!! #ticketsbought #summer-Leann Rimes

    My man @EddieCibrian & I kicked ass @soulcycle this AM after 2 hrs of sleep! Flight delays won’t keep us down. #MondayMotivaton #gotsoul-Leann Rimes

    Translation: Jodi Rimes set up a staged photo-op in the parking lot of soul cycle and at LAX.

    Who is Jodi Rimes kidding? We all know that she STALKED Eddie to Soul Cycle, the same way she stalked Brandi and her boyfriend to Nobu.

    Flight delays? So it was Jodi Rimes manically posting on Eddie’s IG account.

  • gwen

    Translation: Jodi Rimes paid ET to write about the dress she single white femaled from Brandi.

    Why is Jodi Rimes always copying Brandi?

    So how much did Darrell “donate” to JJ, ET, and DM?

    Too funny. This site wrote that Jodi Rimes was all for LGBTQ, so why is Jodi Rimes paying media outlets to write fluffpieces about what she wore?

    That dress looked horrible on Jodi Rimes, it was way too big. Many people were talking about how the dress made her legs look horrible.

  • gwen

    Translation: Eddie sold out his kids AGAIN and Jodi Rimes is going to set up a staged photo-op with Brandi’s kids.

    What an evil and cruel person Jodi Rimes. Why is she manically bragging about how she has Brandi’s kids for a week? Eddie is such a lowlife to let his kids be used like this. This site wrote about Jodi Rimes being full of love and then she contradicts it by doing something like this. Setting up staged photo-ops in parking lot isn’t family time. If Jodi Rimes was having family time with Eddie, she wouldn’t be on twitter taunting Brandi with her kids.

  • gwen

    Translation: Jodi Rimes is going to hijack someone else’s work and call it her own.

    Translation: Eddie has been hooking up with a woman who works at Soul Cycle and Jodi Rimes stalked Eddie to Soul Cycle the same way she stalked Brandi and her boyfriend to Nobu and then set up a staged photo-op in the parking lot!

    Translation: Jodi Rimes is such a hasbeen that Darrell is paying radio stations to give Jodi Rimes interviews so that she can pity play.

    What’s Jodi Rimes to do when Eddie won’t stop cheating on her?

    1) Taunt Brandi by manically cranking out tweets about Eddie’s mother because we all know that tweeting about Eddie’s mother means that he isn’t cheating on Jodi Rimes, right?:

    Celebrating my beautiful mother in law’s bday tonight with our family. Counting our blessings! #HAPPYBIRTHDAY Hortensia ❤-Leann

    2) Throw Eddie’s mother a birthday party so that Eddie will participate in the happy family 4th of July staged photo-ops:

    Celebrating my beautiful mother in law’s bday tonight with our family. Counting our blessings! #HAPPYBIRTHDAY Hortensia ❤-Leann

    LeAnn looked hot and sexy in the pictures accompanying the story the Daily Mail ran on her!!!!! Be sure to check out the Daily Mail to see the awesome picks and video!!!!!

    Daily Mail – Red-y to sizzle! Sartorially savvy LeAnn Rimes flaunts serious sideboob in plunging tank top as she touches down at Los Angeles airport

    She made her fans go crazy recently at the NYC Pride Parade.

    And LeAnn Rimes looked happy to be back in Los Angeles as she wore a revealing ensemble touching down at LAX on Sunday.

    The 34-year-old yodeler showcased her svelte physique – and her serious sideboob – in a tank top and jeans as she grinned from ear to ear.

    The Moonlight Steam singer looked ravishing in red as she rocked the plunging tank to that gave her cleavage center stage.

    Daring to impress, the sometimes thespian poured her gorgeous gams into tight blue denim jeans.

    Throwing caution to the wind, the country star went virtually makeup free as she let her natural beauty shine with just a touch of berry lip.
