Finally, a Sensible Celebrity

Melissa Etheridge says Angelina Jolie's decision to have a preventive mastectomy is "fearful," not "brave."

Though Etheridge never used the word, some have gone so far as to call Jolie a "coward." I just think the poor girl needs to stop with the facade and get psychiatric care to help her with the addiction of poking knives and needles into her beautiful body.

From a recent Washington Blade interview with Melissa Etheridge...

BLADE: As a breast cancer survivor yourself, what did you think of Angelina Jolie’s announcement?

ETHERIDGE: 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.
