Melissa Etheridge Doesn’t Think Angelina Jolie’s Double Mastectomy Was Brave

The Superficial / June 18, 2013

While most of the world fawned over Angelina Jolie’s bravery for cutting off her breasts then getting nice new ones just in case she might get cancer, Melissa Etheridge has a different opinion. Although, she is a lesbian and therefore predisposed to protecting awesome titties, and so together on this hill we shall stand and fight to our last breath. *raises sword* COME. TO. OUR. WINDOW! The Washington Blade reports:

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. My belief is that cancer comes from inside you and so much of it has to do with the environment of your body. It’s the stress that will turn that gene on or not. Plenty of people have the gene mutation and everything but it never comes to cancer so I would say to anybody faced with that, that choice is way down the line on the spectrum of what you can do and to really consider the advancements we’ve made in things like nutrition and stress levels. I’ve been cancer free for nine years now and looking back, I completely understand why I got cancer. There was so much acidity in everything. I really encourage people to go a lot longer and further before coming to that conclusion.

And because he has a questionable movie with his own money riding on it to promote, Brad Pitt actually responded during a junket interview where he should’ve been getting softball questions about what he’d do in a real zombie invasion. Here’s his reaction:

Just kidding. It was this boring shit. Via Us Magazine:

Pitt hadn’t heard about Etheridge’s interview until just before the red carpet event. “I don’t know,” he told Us. “Somebody just said that.”
“Melissa’s an old friend of mine,” continued Pitt, who invited Etheridge to perform at his 2000 wedding to Jennifer Aniston. “I’m sure we’ll talk on the phone. I don’t know what it is.”

Apparently when Melissa Etheridge performs at your wedding, you stay the fuck together or she’ll call your new girlfriend a titless coward. Her vengeance is legendary.
