Melissa Etheridge Explains Why She Smokes Weed With Her Adult Children

Melissa Etheridge is opening up about smoking weed with her family.

The 55-year-old singer, who started using cannabis when she was going through chemotherapy, is trying to break the stigma around the drug.

Melissa revealed that she even smokes with her adult children, 20-year-old Bailey and 18-year-old Beckett.

“I have smoked with my older two. It was funny at first, and then they realized, it’s a very natural, end-of-the-day [thing]…And it brings you much closer. I’d much rather have a smoke with my grown kids than a drink,” she explained.

Melissa added, “My children have a very clear understanding of cannabis,. When I hold it without shame or confusion, then they can understand it as simple as if I was pointing to a bottle of Percocet and said, ‘That’s Mama’s medicine.’ You take the naughtiness out of it, and it’s not something that kids run to.”

Melissa Etheridge Debuts Song About Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt After Being Contacted By Her 'Fixer' - Watch Now!

Melissa Etheridge sings an original song called “The Fixer Blues” about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s divorce proceedings on Watch What Happens Live! on Wednesday (October 5) in New York City.

The 55-year-old entertainer, who was on the show with Kelly Clarkson, made some comments about Angelina and Brad earlier in the week. Melissa revealed that Angelina‘s “fixer” contacted her about the comments to do damage control.

“I haven’t spoke to Brad in forever,” Melissa said. “Every time I say something it gets turned around and twisted and all of a sudden I’m saying something about [Angelina] … so I thought I would do what I do best, and I wrote a song about it today.”

Melissa Etheridge Reveals Brad Pitt Could Have Been Her Kids' Sperm Donor

Melissa Etheridge revealed that Brad Pitt could have been the sperm donor for her two children with former partner Julie Cypher!

“Well actually, [Brad Pitt] was such a good friend of mine, and we did consider it,” the 54-year-old singer-songwriter told Australia’s Studio 10. “And yet, I looked and I saw how badly he wanted children and I thought, ‘I don’t want to share this with someone who really, badly wants children because my children don’t need another parent – they have two.’”

“Of course, my teenagers now are like, ‘I could have had Brad Pitt [as my dad]!’ My son said, ‘I could’ve been amazingly handsome!’” Melissa continued jokingly.

“It’s one of the reasons why David Crosby and his wife are so perfect – because they had children,” Melissa continued (David ended up being the sperm donor of kids Bailey and Beckett). “They were looking to do this as a gift. And my children are lovely and gorgeous anyways.”
