‘Famous People Apologize To Me For Not Coming Out’ says Melissa Etheridge

Speaking to Huffington Post recently Melissa Etheridge has said ‘Famous People’ apologize to her for not ‘Coming Out’.

During a conversation with host Ricky Camilleri about her latest album, ‘This Is M.E.’, Etheridge recalled the period when she “talked about being a lesbian for three years, basically,” but she said she didn’t mind as long as she was “helping normalize this otherwise mysterious thing, this scary thing in the world.”

But it turns out Etheridge wasn’t the only one making such a personal confession.

“It was a time when actually more people came out to me. I had more reporters and people go, ‘Can I tell you I’m gay? I had a lot of that. People still do that. Famous people do that to me. Famous people apologize to me for not coming out.”
