Post your comment about Melissa Etheridge
 It’s been crazy. Oh my God, it’s so fun, though. I’m having a blast. I’m so outside of my comfort zone and I’m, like, living out high school fantasies. To get up there on stage without a guitar in front of me is the first sort of fear barrier I had to get through. I never had to use that part of my brain [as I do with choreography] – singing and then moving at the same time with a lot of other people. If you mess up, you’re gonna get trampled.
