Melissa Etheridge is walking back her remarks regarding Angelina Jolie's preventative mastectomy, which she was quoted as calling cowardly and fearful.
It's not the Maleficent star's decision to have the surgery she objects to, Etheridge now clarifies, it's the way that decision was glorified after the fact.
"I don't have any opinion on what she 'should have' done," Etheridge, a breast cancer survivor herself, tells Us Weekly. "All are free to choose."
"I only objected to the term 'brave' in describing it."
