We wrote about this weeks ago, but QVC finally put out a press release about singer Melissa Etheridge coming to the home shopping network to perform and debut her new album, “Fearless Love.”
She’ll be on next Tuesday in primetime, 9:30 p.m.
“This album is definitely a return to my rock n’ roll roots,” Etheridge says in the release. “I am excited for my fans to hear the new songs and am looking forward to performing them live on QVC. It’s going to be a great time!”
Call us cynical, but we find it a little hard to believe that this quote came from Etheridge, rather than someone in QVC’s PR department.
But hey, lesbians like and watch QVC just like anybody else.
As for “Fearless Love,” perhaps Etheridge should have called her album “Fearless Divorce.” She and her wife, the former Tammy Lynn Michaels, have separated. The two have been together for nine years and had twins together.
Anyway, here’s the press release:
