As a fourteen-year-old country singer, Margaret LeAnn Rimes posed for a milk mustache ad after performing songs about broken hearts: http://www.whymilk.com/images/lrimesM.jpg LeAnn Rimes began singing before she was two years old. Her parents managed her early career which began when she was 5. By age 7, they had gotten their little girl to appear in a stage version of The Christmas Carol. Shortly after that, mom and dad helped little LeAnn to produce and release her first album. When LeAnn turned 18, she sued her parents to get out of a contract that she signed at age 12, and she also sued her father, claiming that she was cheated out of $7 million. During the litigation, LeAnn hosted the Country Music Awards and wore a t-shirt saying "Daddy." The Enquirer called her "...dyslexic" and asked, "What's going on with LeAnn?" Apparently, dairy industry advertising geniuses did not understand family animosities when they wrote and released LeAnn's new milk ode to "mom." LeAnn Rimes' latest album, "Twisted Angel," does not contain her new twisted milk song. You'll soon be hearing this one on radio, paid for by the dairy industry: "Mom, it's your Baby it's you I adore for your loving ways and the milk you poured You'd pour me milk at the start of each day I'd gulp it all down and head on my way Milk's nine vitamins, minerals, too helped give me strong teeth and bones now I'm singing to you Mom, thanks for milk three times a day Made me so strong in a million of ways" We've taken the liberty to re-write the lyrics: Mom, it's your Baby it's you I adore I've taken $25 grand and am dairy's new whore. You'd pour me milk at the start of each day from those songs I recorded, you stole all of my pay. Milk's nine vitamins, minerals, too With does of virus, pus, hormones and glue. Mom, thanks for milk three times a day Heart disease and breast cancer, my future, they say.
