Though Melissa Etheridge is a two-time Grammy winner, breast cancer survivor and multi-platinum recording artist, none of that has prepared her for the inquisitive minds of her children, especially when it comes to her not-so-PG lyrics.

So when Melissa’s two oldest children, Bailey Jean, 10, and 8-year-old Beckett, ask a question like, “Mom, what’s a threesome?” Melissa tells OK! that she lets her better half, actress Tammy Lynn Michaels, handle the answer. “Tammy explained it them,” she laughs. “We hide too much stuff anyway, just be honest with kids.”

Good thing for Melissa, whose ninth album, The Awakening, is in stores now, has the support of Tammy. “She has infinite love for myself and the kids,” she says at the Hard Rock’s Rocktober event. “I laugh every single day.”
