Poptarts Episode 120: Melissa Etheridge!

Melissa Etheridge is an unparalleled singer-songwriter, guitarist, author, and activist who has been making irresistible blues-rock albums for over 30 years. She was a bit of an underground sensation when she first got started in the late ‘80s, but in 1993, everything changed when she released her breakthrough fourth album Yes I Am. It spent 138 weeks on the Billboard charts thanks to the monster hits “I’m The Only One,” and “Come To My Window,” it went Platinum, and then it went on to sell more than 6 Million copies. Now, the Oscar-and-Grammy winner is back and touring with her 17th album, One Way Out, a collection of songs from her early life that are finally getting to see the light of day. On BUST’s latest “Poptarts” podcast, Etheridge recalls her coming out story, celebrates her intergenerational fandom, and gives sage advice on how to keep the show going when fans keep showering the stage with panties and bras.
