Many have applauded Angelina Jolie for her strength since announcing her double mastectomy last month, so we were more than a bit surprised when Melissa Etheridge spoke out and said the decision was made out of fear and not bravery.
Brad Pitt was recently made aware of the singer's comments, and understandably he couldn't help but disagree.
The World War Z actor said:

Melissa Etheridge has always been very vocal about her support for legalizing marijuana, and she’s at it again.

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

On Sunday, Melissa Etheridge was spotted enjoying an afternoon of F-U-N at the Round Meadow Elementary Carnival in Calabasas with her twins Johnnie Rose and Miller Steven!!
The singer looked to be in great spirits now that her custody battle with ex Tammy Lynn Michaels is dunzo!
