Melissa Etheridge weighed in on Angelina Jolie’s double mastectomy announcement and confirms that she and Linda Wallem are still going
strong. When asked to comment about Jolie’s big news Etheridge said,
“I have to say I feel a little differently. I have that gene mutation
too and it’s not something I would believe in for myself. I wouldn’t
call it the brave choice. I actually think it’s the most fearful
choice you can make when confronting anything with cancer.”
