Who is Alanis Morissette?
Alanis Nadine Morissette is a musician, singer, songwriter, and actress. On June 1, 1974, she was born in Riverside Hospital in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, Georgia Mary Ann and Alan Richard Morissette. Her parents were military school teachers, and the family briefly lived in Lahr, Germany. Morissette began playing the piano at age six and, at age 7, started taking dance lessons.
Having had a mildly successful music career in the 90s in Canada, she soon moved to Holmby Hills, Los Angeles, as a part of a record deal. In 1995, she released 'Jagged Little Pill', which sold 33 million copies globally. The album was made into a rock musical that earned a total of 15 Tony Award nominations. Her other albums include 'Under Rug Swept', 'So-Called Chaos', 'Flavors of Entanglement', 'Havoc and Bright Lights' and 'Such Pretty Forks in the Road'.
Controversy around docu-movie 'Jagged'
The HBO documentary, 'Jagged', which highlights Morissette's journey to stardom and talks about issues within the music industry, sees Morissette speak about her abuse, including being raped by multiple men at age 15. As reported by Insider, she opened about why she didn't make these allegations publicly before. It was to protect her family. "Me not telling specific information about my experience as a teenager was almost solely around wanting to protect — protect my parents, protect my brothers, protect future partners," Morissette said. She also spoke about the abuse faced by artists back in 2020 as well.
However, as reported by Variety, she is now distancing herself from the movie, accusing the filmmakers of "salacious agenda."
"I agreed to participate in a piece about the celebration of 'Jagged Little Pill' 's 25th anniversary, and was interviewed during a very vulnerable time (while in the midst of my third postpartum depression during lockdown)," she said.
"I was lulled into a false sense of security and their salacious agenda became apparent immediately upon my seeing the first cut of the film. This is when I knew our visions were in fact painfully diverged. This was not the story I agreed to tell. I sit here now experiencing the full impact of having trusted someone who did not warrant being trusted. I have chosen not to attend any event around this movie for two reasons: one is that I am on tour right now."
"The other is that, not unlike many 'stories' and unauthorized biographies out there over the years, this one includes implications and facts that are simply not true. While there is beauty and some elements of accuracy in this/my story to be sure — I ultimately won't be supporting someone else's reductive take on a story much too nuanced for them to ever grasp or tell." she added.
'Jagged' debuted at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival on September 13, 2021 and will be released by HBO on November 19, 2021.
Her net worth
Dubbed 'Queen of Alt-Rock Angst', Morissette has a massive net worth of $45 million. As reported by Celebrity Net Worth, she has sold over 75 million records. Apart from this, she has owned impressive real estate properties, seeing that she sold her Brentwood home in LA for $5.35 million. She had initially purchased the 5,150 sq ft Mediterranean-style home six-bedroom home, complete with a swimming pool and a sports court in 1996 for $1.8 million.
