  1. Alanis Morissette is glad to be honored with the GLADD and United Nations awards. But she states. The fact that she's awarded for being tolerance towards the LGBT community. That's a back handed compliment. She said I find the word accepting Better. The word tolerance is kinda like, you kinda Will let people take advantage of you and walk all on over you, basically asking for trouble. She also said, I've experienced this a lot. Andy asked about Janet.. Alanis was More niceful saying it's for all nipples In general just not hers. But Andy and Will and Grace Actor Sean Hayes was more shady. Knowing Andy. He wanted a messy shady answer as he always does when it comes to a diva he doesn't give a sh$t about..
  2.  Originally scheduled to be released back in May, this Friday (July 31st) marks the release of Alanis Morissette's ninth studio album, "Such Pretty Forks in the Road,” through Epiphany Music and Thirty Tigers in North America, and by RCA and Sony Music in the United Kingdom and Europe. It's been eight years since her last studio effort, in which time Alanis has been raising a family, hosting her own podcast series “Conversation with Alanis Morissette," adapting her 5x Grammy-winning breakthrough album, "Jagged Little Pill" into a broadway musical and, for the last three years, juggling all of that with writing and recording this album.  Never afraid to tackle delicate or unsettling subject matter in her music, "Such Pretty Forks in the Road" is both raw and haunting at times. The album is a brutally honest exploration of addiction, anxiety, betrayal, insomnia, motherhood and postpartum depression all weaved together like pieces of a home-stitched tapestry. Alanis worked with just two producers on this album, Alex Hope and Catherine Marks, which has resulted in a very coherent collection of 11 songs that truly feel introspective and intimate. Stand-out tracks like “Smiling,” "Diagnosis," and "Reckoning" see Alanis lament with a profound openness and unapologetic frankness, while showcasing the capabilities of her ever-recognisable voice, now with a mature and worldly-wise edge. You can order a physical copy of the album on CD, Vinyl or Special Collector's Box from Amazon and it’s available to buy digitally or listen to on streaming services from midnight tonight, your time, wherever you are in the world. Stream below + please comment as you listen, folks! PS: Since this is the first time I’ve done an “album review” here, let me know what you think and if you’d like to see me contribute more content like this on Exhale, thanks.
  3. Filmed completely at her home and featuring her husband and kids What do you think?
  4. We talk about mental health openly, but there is one form of mental health that's still rarely discussed, Postpartum depression. The statistics are very scary one in 7 women will actually get this. Alanis Morissette always mentally prepares herself, but sadly it always comes back. From what I understand once you have postpartum depression, every pregnancy you go through it always comes back. No matter how many times Alanis suffers from it, she will always go through it, as her love for her children. Ever, Onyx and winter, plus the love of her husband American rapper Soul eye is her strength to carry through this horrible disease. Unfortunately thx to Alanis mentioning that she went thru it a third time, a reporter for daily blast live is actually scared that she will have a worse case again, due to a new pregnancy. One of the new songs from her upcoming Ninth studio album (Seventh global studio album) such pretty forks in the road is called Diagnosis, and It's about Postpartum depression and lyrically it touches it dead on. From the opening lines. "CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT COS I DON'T EVEN CARE ANYMORE " from very in advance early reviews The upcoming album is very piano and strings driven and very dark lyrically. The Reckoning ep that came out this past Friday proves how dark and personal she's getting. Here's diagnosis.. I really do expect this project to get her best reviews since jagged little pill for it's raw honesty on addiction, motherhood and life in general..
  5. In the latest episode of Rolling Stone Music Now, Alanis Morissette discusses her powerful new album, Such Pretty Forks in the Road, 25 years of Jagged Little Pill, and much more, including a moment when she laughingly addresses years of “shaming” over those dubious examples of irony (a black fly in your Chardonnay?) in her hit song “Ironic.” To hear the entire episode, press play below: In any case, Morissette was never particularly attached to “Ironic,” which largely stood apart from the autobiographical narrative of the Jagged Little Pill album. “I didn’t even want it on the record,” she explains. “And I remember a lot of people going, ‘Please please, please.’ So I said, OK. That was one of the first songs we wrote, almost like a demo to get our whistles wet. But people wound up really liking the melody, and I wasn’t that precious about it. And I came to realize later that perhaps I should have been,” she admits, laughing. “Whoops!”
  6. Watching the feast on scraps dvd which is part Concert part documentary and a 9 track unreleased cd. One scene reminded me at one point we were very stalkish, there's a scene of alanis at an airport and she enters the room from her flight to be swarmed by fans, it doesn't happen now thanks to stricter laws forbids anybody without a ticket to a flight to actually do this now. That gives celebs more privacy during flight tours, which most preferred to bus tours. Watching it reminded me that social media made it easier to connect with fans and gave a safety net that is a barrier now. In my days we went by the tour itinerary and went to the airport the night before the big show happened to get autographs abd photos. I also believe today's music acts wouldn't survive the music industry of the past as privacy and taking time off rarely existed.. As the industry of the past viewed artists as money makers and investments and not as human beings I also believe veteran acts wouldn't handle today's industry as while they love making music, they viewed it as a job, and not as a passion or a hobby. Most of the acts like Madonna, and a few others have a workaholic mind. Telling them to take a vacation, they really wouldn't know what to do with that, as their parents raised them to have a work attitude whether sick or not. @Jordan Miller @Roxxy
  7. When you think of the 90s, Jagged little pill is a generation X and older millennials 1981-1986 defining album, somehow Taylor swift thought it was a good idea to bring out Alanis Morissette to perform you oughta know, while most her surprise guests were praised, this one got a most negative response from the audience. This was probably the first and last time she performed with a "Veteran act" as her audience wasn't happy. Neither was one critic who was actually jealous of Taylor's audience for not growing up with Alanis Morissette and this song. In August 2015, Taylor Swift invited Morissette on stage in Los Angeles to sing the song with her. Many of Swift's fans at the concert, who had been born since the song's release, expressed bewilderment as to her identity. In Slate, Amanda Marcotte suggested it was better they didn't, criticizing the song in the process. "I am happy for these teenagers who don't know who Alanis Morissette is. I envy you, teens," she wrote. "[W]eirdly enough, 'You Oughta Know' was held up in 1995 as some kind of feminist anthem of empowerment, an angry yalp of rebellion from ladies who had enough," she recalled. While she found nothing wrong with that idea in principle, she compared Morissette's perspective in the song to men who lash out at women who they believe have put them in the "friend zone." "It's still a song about refusing to take no for an answer. This is a 'yes means yes' world. There's no reason for the teens of this world to know anything about Alanis Morissette." It's extremely awkward, she hypes the audience up, and the whole thing backfired as nobody knew her or the song.
  8. There's nothing worse than a woman scorned. That's the classic saying. An audio engineer has basically unleashed the 26 Year old vocal stem from a 20 Year old Alanis Morissette. He even said. This is the only vocal take. Most of the songs are just done in one take. Only mary jane had a second take But as you see, There was no denying what was about to be unleashed a Woman angry and men scared for once.. @Roxxy @Jordan Miller
  9. While Meredith Brooks's Bish sounds similar to You learn by Alanis Morissette. Stop the confusion. Then, 39 Year old Meredith Brooks was really blocked from radio playlists cos she refused to remove the title of the song and the word itseld, Sure it's played now But 23 years ago was a different story. But somehow the older Brooks and the younger Alanis Morissette gets confused in 97 Alanis basically was in India on her spiritual journey which would find her letting go of her anger, And creating a calmer girl which was apparent on Her follow up album 1998's Supposed former Infatuation junkie's First single Thank U which also showed more of her vocals than her first album. This is Meredith's biggest hit and was her first major label single release at 39. She went back to independent self release once everyone realized her age was approaching 40 and the attitude and the statement was actually fake as in she was none of the things she wrote about. This was the first single to Supposed former Infatuation junkie, let's just say it shocked everybody to see a much softer side of Alanis Morissette at 24. She even told oprah this wasn't a coincidence or something that was marketed, it's just when u get older u r never the same person. When I was 21 it was I hate Men, Love sucks, Men should die, But by the time I turned 24, I changed into a different person, a more spiritual person, There has to be more to life than just fame and Fortune. That's was what the second album was about. Me embracing a new wiser version of me, and a calmer sense of direction. The progress is all there, even one day the person that hoes will stop once it gets boring and repetitive.

  11. Alanis looks back on the impact of jagged little pill and how her life changed in a fast minute. But I notice interesting facts . 80% of the album is the demos, with one or a second vocal take. . It was purposely set to be unperfect, unpolished to show the raw, organic, anger and the intensity of the emotions. A quote she said reflected on my youth as as a kid and many of us older millennials particularly 81-88 "I was told that I couldn't be sad, I was told I couldn't be mad, I was told I couldn't be emotional". I can relate to that, My parents basically whether no matter What I was feeling, Fake that smile, You represent our family in public. @Roxxy @Jordan Miller Now I fully understand why it won album of the year over Daydream by Mariah Carey. Daydream was pretty much the opposite of jagged little pill. Happy go lucky love songs, perfectly polished and tied up in a pretty bow. Sometimes the organnic feel is better than the polished and perfection type.

  13. https://music.apple.com/us/album/jagged-little-pill-collectors-edition/1031419290 Alanis Morissette issued the iconic female singer songwriter album Jagged little pill on this day in 1995. The album released by Madonna's Maverick records. The album is credited by birthing the female rage. Anger about men, *** abd religion. It's also the best selling Release on Madonna's Label. 16X platinum in the US. 30+ Million sold worldwide Won the Grammy for album of the yesr (earning the forever wrath of the lambs), Best rock song. Best rock album and Best pop album. No she didn't win best new artist as rumors said she did. She wasn't even nominated as her Two Canadian releases disqualified her at the time. Ironically when The Spice girls and backstreet boys arrived in 97. She was happy as she started to feel like she started a trend that wasn't going anywhere but down "I came at the right time, right off the end of the grunge era. I extended it a little bit. But let's be honest. Grunge was going to die since The king of that music genre Kurt Cobain took the genre when he died. But I'm glad to know that I'm the female grunge queen. Something Courtney love tried to be but failed all at the same time.," Alanis on how Madonna was the only one willing to sign her. Madonna on signing Alanis Morissette and other left field acts like Deftones and Prodigy. Acts that typical record labeks would pass cos they value money over art. Charts and success over artistic integrity @JordanMiller @Roxxy
