Will Melissa Etheridge Do 'Dancing With the Stars'?
May 4 2010, 8:00 AM EDT (view original item)Melissa Etheridge recently stopped by 'Dancing With the Stars' and performed the title tune from her new album 'Fearless Love,' but is she open to appearing on the show as a celebrity contestant?
After performing on the hit dance competition, the singer talked candidly to AOL TV about the timing of her album's release, which came out a few weeks after she announced her split from her wife of almost seven years, actress Tammy Etheridge (formerly Tammy Lynn Michaels). The couple shares two children.
You're doing a lot of publicity and interviews for your new album. It's on the heels of your split with Tammy. Did you think about skipping the press tour -- or putting restrictions about personal questions on interviews you're giving?
I did consider that. I would not have had the news about [my personal life] come out right when the album did. I'm so open about my personal life. People would say to me, "Hey, how's Tammy?," "How are the kids?" I try to be truthful. I'd be dishonest if I were to say everything's fine. I said, "Look, it would just help me if this came out [ahead of time.]"
