Whether or not you give Alanis Morissette credit for producing ballad after ballad for just about every emotion a person could feel, for overcoming a major eating disorder in her late teens and later promoting eating disorder awareness, for that one time where she hosted the Juno awards in a nude leotard to comment on the era of censorship in our post-nipplegate society, or for kissing Carrie Bradshaw, Alanis Morissette is simply a goddess. Her new video for track "Big Sur" beautifully reinforces this fact.
When asked what my favorite Alanis song is, I shudder in disbelief. Read More
Canada is no stranger to the musical superstardom of female artists like Feist, Emily Haines, Alanis Morissette and Sarah McLachlan, just to name a few. It’s a country that continues to produce musical genius across the board regardless of gender.

There are a few seconds of silence, and then all of a sudden, without any introduction, explanation, or track number, the heartbreaking final song begins—a cappella style.

This past summer, Alanis Morissette made a surprise visit to DLDwomen, a conference that takes place in Munich annually, and brings together over 50 international speakers. The conversation got very real very quickly as Alanis dove right into issues such as her role to humanity as an artist, the alpha woman, and the new role of men.

YOU OUGHTA KNOW that Alanis Morissette’s new single “Guardian” is here. It’s a precursor to her album that’s dropping in August by the name of Havoc and Bright Lights. And if you love Alanis you probably know that on June 19th she is giving a TimesTalk. But if that isn’t enough for you, you can pre-party as well.
It’s been 17 years since Jagged Little Pill came out. Can you believe it? “Ironic”, “Hand in my Pocket”, “Head Over Feet”, “You Oughta Know": all part of the pop music canon. Read More
