WTF?! LeAnn Rimes

“I’m melting! Melting! What a world!” Admit it. That’s what you thought when you saw it, too. Why would anyone turn LeAnn Rimes’ pretty face into an ugly smear? This is one of the strangest album covers I have seen in ages. It looks like a promo for one of those cheap Italian horror movies from the 1970s. She Ate Satan’s Soul! Starring Gina Lola Linguini as The Witch.

Spitfire is Rimes’ 14th studio album. It is scheduled to be released on April 9, 2013.
