What's Melissa Etheridge been up to lately? Just smoking a doobie with her kids. NBD, guys. In an interview with Yahoo! News, the 55-year-old singer said cannabis has been hugely instrumental in helping her cope with side effects from cancer treatment. And she's found the drug has another perk as well: helping her bond with her two oldest kids (with ex Julie Cypher), 20-year-old Bailey, and Beckett, 18.
"It was funny at first, and then they realized it's very natural [at the] end of the day," said Etheridge. "It brings you much closer. I'd much rather have a smoke with my grown kids than a drink."
