Singer LeAnn Rimes has been in the music industry since she was just 13 years old, she began recording tracks at the age of 11. LeAnn has experienced some personal problems in her time, having to spend 30 days in rehab, and she blames her missed childhood for her breakdown.
Rimes told US talk show host Katie Couric, “I think it boils down to basically a loss of childhood. I didn't really have a childhood, and as a kid I was pretty much told to, if anyone asked me that question, to say I was fine. There's the little girl inside of me that I've never quite developed.”
She added, “I jumped over so many normal childhood experiences and became this adult very early on so that part of me is extremely developed and then there's this little girl who never got the attention that she needed. I'm giving her, I guess, that attention now in a way that I now know how to do.”
