To kiss or not to kiss?

To kiss or not to kiss. That was the debate Melissa Etheridge and her lesbian partner were having before this year's Oscar show.

"I have not been one to kiss my partner in public just for sensationalism," Etheridge, who won the Academy Award for original song, told reporters after Sunday's show.

But when her name was called for "I Need to Wake Up" from the film "An Inconvenient Truth," Etheridge planted one right on the lips of Tammy Lynn Michaels.

"I was kissing her because that's what you do, you kiss your loved one when you win an Oscar, that's what I grew up believing," Etheridge said backstage. Then, holding up the golden statue she'd just won, the musician quipped, "This is the only naked man that will ever be in my bedroom."
