Angelina Jolie's Camp Contacted Melissa Etheridge, So She Wrote a Song About It

"When you're chatting with Andy [Cohen], you better watch what you say," the singer crooned on #WWHL.

Musicians have long used their songs to comment on the times. So basically, a tune about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce was inevitable. 

This little ditty came from Melissa Etheridge, who caused a stir earlier this week when she seemed to defend Brad and bash Angelina during an interview with Andy Cohen on his SiriusXM radio show. When Melissa sat down to talk with Andy once again during Wednesday night's Watch What Happens Live, she said she heard from Angelina's camp after her comments grabbed headlines (clip above). "There are people whose business it is, whose job it is to kind of fix things for celebrities," Melissa said, before Andy added that she had basically been contacted by "the Olivia Pope of Team Angelina." (Angelina's team has reportedly been working with famed crisis manager Judy Smith, who inspired the fictional character of Olivia Pope, played by Kerry Washington in Scandal.) 

Melissa went on to defend her comments about the Brangelina split. "I haven't seen Brad [in] forever, and I certainly haven't seen him since he is with Angelina. And every time I say something, it gets out there, and it gets turned around and twisted, and all of a sudden, I'm saying something about her," she explained. "So I thought I would do what I do best, and I wrote a song about it today." 

The rocker then whipped out her guitar and started singing her original composition inspired by the ordeal called "The Fixer Blues." "Well I woke up this morning to a subtle warning that had my mind rocking/Seems I said some things about an old, old, old friend that's got some people talkin'," she began the tune. 

Melissa even poked fun at her own high-profile break-ups from former partners Julie Cypher and Tammy Lynn Michaels. "Now, I know broken hearts, a thing or two about divorce/I've been there before, once... OK, twice," she sang. "And I have not seen my friend in over 10 years, and I swear I have never, ever, ever, ever met his wife/I ain't pickin' no fight/None of my business who's wrong or who's right anyway, that's for sure/My opinion is mine/You can take that and a dime and have a good time on your Google search." 

It seems as though Melissa used the song to do some fixing of her own as she showed humility and genuinely seemed to learn something from the experience. "So fixer, I hope you understand/To scandalize was never my plan/Reminiscing, I was flowin'/I was just hangin' with my good friend Andy Cohen/Talkin' about our spouses and our own glass houses," Melissa sang. "So the moral of this story is divorce is a bitch and nobody wins/Let's not do unto others and please forgive us our sins/Life is too hard anyway/So when you're chattin' with Andy, you better watch what you say." 

Indeed, Melissa. Indeed.
