8 Rapid Fire Questions with Melissa Etheridge

September 15, 2017


Favorite animal out of a moose, a musk-ox and a bear?

Do you know what the capital of Alaska is?
“Hold on, hold on. Oh my god, is it Juneau? I did it! I am so proud!”

What stereotype about Alaskans are you secretly hoping will be true?
“Wow, I can’t think of any right now! I know you don’t ride bears or live in igloos. Um, I guess that you guys are just as badass as I think you are.”

Summer in Alaska or winter in Alaska?
Probably summer in Alaska because I am a little wimpy.

Halibut or salmon?
“Definitely salmon! I try to eat some of it every day.”

Ice skating or skiing?
“Skiing, I’m a much better skier.”

Would you rather go dog sledding or see bears up close in Katmai?
“I think I’d like to see the bears.”

Have you ever seen a glacier?
“Actually, yes! I went up to Alaska to take a family cruise with Rosie O’Donnell. I kind of just snuck on because I really wanted to go. So I got to see glaciers up close and even ride in a dog sled. This was about 10 years ago and I just loved it but it was the total tourist thing. I am looking forward to being on land and actually getting to see Alaska this time.”
