Brandi Carlile thanked Ellen DeGeneres for inspiration


Carlile performed an acoustic rendition of her song “The Joke” on The Ellen DeGeneres show on February 14th and devoted a few minutes to thanking the host for being her lesbian role model as she was a teen. The Grammy winner told Ellen that only thanking to her she found courage to come out to her family and friends. “I basically just outlined that I came out of the closet when I was 14 years old because of you,” the singer told DeGeneres, adding that she had never attended any parties and had no close friends as a teen, there was nobody whom she could trust, but seeing Ellen being brave enough to come out she decided to do the same and never regretted, as the LGBT community was so colorful, diverse, joyful and accepting that she was finally able to feel what it means to be loved the way you are.
