MSNBC has a transcript of Etheridge's interview on Dateline NBC from a couple of days ago.
Phillips: "Are you surprised by the impact it had? How it moved people?"Etheridge's performance at the Grammy's got a lot of attention in the news, and has inspired a lot of people.
Etheridge: "Yes. Yes, I'm definitely taken aback. I remember when I finally made the choice. Yeah, I'm going to do it bald. And you know what? Maybe this'll help somebody who's sitting on chemo laying in bed and going, God, I'm bald. Isn't this weird? Maybe it'll help them feel a little better. I didn't know to what extent that would happen. But I'm honored."
