Melissa Etheridge has written a piece in support of Brandy Clark and why she should win the Grammy’s Best New Artist award this year. An excerpt:

Oh my God, I did not know that she is gay. Lord have mercy, I’m jumping up and down here. Do you know what I love? I love that I read everything about her and it did not say that. It wasn’t like my bio 20 years ago. That was the first thing, that I was gay. Wow, well that makes me very happy.

I know that a couple artists have come out in country music. I feel like the boundaries that have kept people apart and kept people out of certain areas of music are coming down. I really wish the best for her. I’ve always stood by the thought: “If you are talented and honest about who you are and can deliver the goods and you don’t blame any failures because you are gay. If you just make it part of your life, people will accept it and you can succeed.” I think I’m starting to see that, and that’s really beautiful.

I’m sure the fan feelings are mutual, Melissa!

Evan Rachel Wood and Nikki Reed reunited last week for a live Q&A celebrating the 10th anniversary of their film Thirteen.

One of the most important tidbits from the discussion was their sharing of their mutual crushes on one another during filming. Here’s Evan on Nikki:

“I did have a crush on Nikki. I don’t think I realized at the time that it was like a full-blown crush but I definitely remember having feelings and thinking she was so beautiful … I thought you were so gorgeous and fun and there was something about you. The relationships you have with girls when you’re a teenager – there’s a part of you that wants to be them, there’s a part of you that kind of hates them, and there’s a part of you that’s kind of in love with them.”


I already loved that movie and now I love it even more.
