Melissa Etheridge appeared on her old friend, Ellen’s talk show yesterday. Melissa performed the title track of her album, Fearless Love. As someone from a generation where lip-syncing is the norm, it always amazes me how good Melissa’s voice sounds live.
Then came the interview. For those of you who don’t remember, Melissa’s and Tammy’s twins are three years old and she has a boy and a girl. Her kids with Julie are 13 and 11. They recap that she is completely cancer free and that cancer was a symptom of her out of order life and that now she has things back in order and is very happy. (Tammy reference?) Melissa also talks about American Idol, Crystal Bowersox, whose guitar she signed. She is a fan as is Ellen. Ellen then announced that everyone in the audience is getting a copy of Fearless Love.
Annnd end scene. Not exactly the revelatory interview everyone was expecting when we learned that Melissa would finally be appearing on Ellen’s show again. What did you think? Are you satisfied with the Ellen interview? Did it clear up any of your questions?
Meanwhile, Tammy posted this on her blog:
spreading the peace flies out the window when you don’t speak true.hello, romeo?

because of the spinning
Tammy also mentions that no one has asked her for her side of the story. I almost feel bad for her, even though anyone who reads this blog knows that she isn’t my biggest fan. It’s surprising that in the aftermath, no one is asking Tammy for her side of the story. I guess no lesbian news outlets want to piss off Melissa Etheridge.
