Melissa Etheridge Says Angelina Jolie’s Double Mastectomy Was Not ‘Brave’

When Angelina Jolie revealed her choice to have a preventative double mastectomy, celebrities fell all over themselves in their rush to call her courageous—but not Melissa Etheridge. In an interview with the Washington Blade last week that apparently just got noticed by the celebrity media, Etheridge—a breast cancer survivor herself—says, “I wouldn’t call it the brave choice.

Quotable: Tammy Lynn Michaels Suggests Melissa Etheridge Breakup Wasn’t Amicable

That’s never going to work for us. So when someone says, ‘You don’t need a mammogram until you’re 50,’ you take charge of that. I don’t trust any of that.”

—Melissa Etheridge, breast cancer survivor, on the new recommendation that women not get screened for the disease until they’re 50 [People] Keep reading »
