Who knew LeAnn Rimes had such a quick-witted sense of humor? She spends so much time on Twitter defending her slim figure, responding to fans and promoting her inspiring new feel-good song “Give” (from her Lady and Gentlemen album due out at the end of September), there’s hardly time to slip a Blake Shelton-like joke in there. But Wednesday morning (July 20), she made me (and I’m sure the majority of her followers) crack up with her tweet to Martina McBride. McBride had asked her own followers earlier in the day, “Any suggestions for my new album title?” Right away, Rimes came back with, “I’ve always loved ’Bitch Can Saaaannnngggg’ lol! Hope you’re well.” I doubt McBride will use it, but it’s so good, I hope someone does. In other Rimes news, she is setting up another home in Chicago, per her “Boxes are a go for Chicago!” tweet earlier this week.
