LeAnn Rimes has received extra attention this holiday season, (and, no, it’s not because of a feud) which is partly from the creative and rather unusual means used to record her Gasoline and Matches music video. Animator Ian Padgham was involved in the video that used iPhones and the easily-accessible Vine application. When questioned about the technique needed to make such a video Padgham said, “Patience definitely is up there.”
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Rimes said, “Darrell turned me onto Ian’s Vine account, and I’d never seen anything like it. I was shocked that nobody had done a video like that before, and I jumped at the chance to do it. My part in it took 20 or 30 minutes at the most. Ian flew to Dublin, where I was on tour, and put two iPhones up and filmed me doing two passes of the song, along with a few odd things like Reach for a star or Pretend you’re falling. “

The video shows a more creative side to the singer, who enjoyed the process of creating the album. “This is one of those crazy transitions for me, because I’m out of my deal next week. I had never in my life made a record like this, where basically the whole album [Spitfire] was just a creative passion project. If the single clicks somehow with radio, it would be great, but if not, it was totally fun to have a great piece of work in this video we dreamt up and continue to work with really cool people,” Rimes said.
LeAnn Rimes has a reputation for breaking innovation barriers with her music videos, but recent news has also touched on her interest in picking the perfect Christmas present. In a recent interview with E! Online, Rimes detailed some of her favorite gifts to give such as a luxe Laura Mercier bath set, Jonathan Adler Unicorn Salt & Pepper Shakers, as well as popular gaming systems (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One – of course) just in time for Christmas.
