Melissa Etheridge is fighting for LGBT rights in Russia!
The singer-songwriter has been so angered by the nation’s new anti-gay laws that she sat down and wrote an AH-Mazing song!
It’s not about how wrong Russia’s treatment of the LGBT community has been though, but rather a call for unity! A call for peace! And of course, a call for love!
Melissa’s single is titled Uprising of Love and is a total anthem for freedom! We LOVE it!
She’s also started a human rights coalition by the same name, which has gotten support from a TON of celebs so far, including Madonna, James Franco, Julianne Moore, Cyndi Lauper, and Edward Norton.
Melissa broke down what the words in Uprising of Love mean to her on a personal level, sharing:
She just won't let this go, will she??!

Melissa Etheridge and Tammy Lynn Michaels took two years to finally come to a divorce settlement.
Both seemed to get plenty out of the deal, with Tammy Lynn reportedly receiving over $23,000 per month in child support!
But if you thought the fight was over, you haven't seen All There Is on Tammy Lynn's blog!
The Popular actress seems to imply in her oblique, poetic way that Melissa is reluctant and slow to pay. She writes:
WOW. Someone cleaned out!
We reported last month that after almost two years of legally trying to rip each other's throats out over custody and financial support, Melissa Etheridge and her ex, Tammy Lynn Michaels, had reached a settlement in their domestic partnership split. It appears that the latter ended up receiving quite a significant chunk of change…in royalties from the rock star's music!
That right, under the terms of the agreement, Tammy walks away with 50% of the royalties from
Divorce is tough and so is the end of a domestic partnership.
Melissa Etheridge has been battling her ex-partner Tammy Lynn Michaels for the last two years over custody and financial support, but the two have FINALLY settled!
Sources are reporting that the feuding former lovers reached a settlement on Monday night, in which they'll share joint custody of their kids and Melissa will give Tammy more than the $23,000 she's getting now.
We don't know how MUCH more Melissa will be giving her ex, but we're happy that these two have decided to give peace a chance and come to an amicable decision.
Now that their separation is in order, we wish both these lovely ladies the best as they continue to search for love!
