MESSAGE FROM MISSY

Hey there,

You might have seen some media excitement about my sexuality lately. Basically, I gave an interview [here] that’s since been twisted around by other writers so I figure I should clear things up for anyone who’s been confused by it all.

As I explained in that original interview, I’ve never felt comfortable with labeling or categorizing human beings. However if we’re going to pigeonhole me, I’ve been in relationships with both men and women so I guess I fall most easily under the category “Bisexual”.

The reason I’ve tried to avoid discussing this with journalists is because – like most people – I just don’t like the idea of virtual strangers delving into my private life and possibly misrepresenting things.

Recent events have just reinforced that view. Please rest assured that I am not, never have been, and never will be ashamed of my sexuality but also please respect the fact that when I do an interview I want it to be about my music and not about my love life!

Thanks for your support and understanding.

WALK AGAINST WARMING

There’s now overwhelming evidence that climate change will have serious economic, social and environmental impacts and threatens our quality of life. Climate change is the most challenging issue of our time.

Even though ordinary Aussies across the country are pitching in to reduce their own greenhouse gas emissions, this simply isn’t enough to stop climate change globally. We need governments, industries and the community to work together so we can see real reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.

So, to show our political leaders that Australians are deeply concerned about global warming, we can Walk Against Warming!

In 2007 Walk Against Warming will highlight the need for laws in place to reduce Australia’s greenhouse pollution, through:

- a reduction in energy use
- increased energy efficiency
- a shift to renewable energy
- better public transport systems
- an end to land clearing and logging of old growth forests
- a price being placed on carbon pollution

Join thousands of other Aussies at a Walk Against Warming event near you to send a clear message to our political leaders – that the community wants bolder and more effective government action on climate change!

Get a group of your mates together and walk against warming!
