Happy Birthday to Melissa Etheridge Etheridge gave us a WTF moment when she got kinda chummy with Pastor Rick Warren late last year while he was in the eye of the storm for being chosen by President Barack Obama to deliver the invocation at the inauguration despite this homophobic history.

It’s still a head-scratcher but I have always admired Melissa for being true to herself so if that made sense to her, so be it. When someone has given us as much joy as Melissa has through her music and as much inspiration through her activism, that person has a special place in our hearts forever.

So happy 48th birthday to a real icon. Here is Melissa in one of her most memorable performances: a Grammy tribute to Janis Joplin with Joss Stone. She had lost her hair due to chemotherapy for breast cancer and was stunningly bald. I love it! She comes in at the 2:30 mark. Enjoy!

One Remark

  1. She has been my hero for 15+ years. I’ve always adored her music, style, wit and charm. She also smells really good whatever the lotion is she was using back then.

    I was so sad about the flack she received over Warren. She is so much brighter than he will ever be. We may not agree with her thoughts on Warren, but we can’t deny that she is a powerful force in the gay rights movement.
