Alanis Morissette says that she was raped and abused as a teenager. She has written an autobiography in which she details her life experiences and the things she has suffered from, and eventually overcame.
She says, “I’m writing a book that will tell my life story. It details some of the things I have experienced and the abuse I’ve suffered. I was the victim of statutory rape and this book will help me get rid of the feelings of shame.”
She also says that the abuse she suffered was the source of all of the angst-filled songs on her album, Jagged Little Pill.
She adds, “My addictions were work and food. I smoked pot once in a while, but I’m too much of a control freak to be a drug person.”
Think she’s referring to her relationship with Dave Coulier? He is 15 years older than her. I’ve heard that he was the source behind the meaning of the album. Her relationship with him ended in 1993, but she was 19 at the time, so I’m thinking not. Do you think she’s just trying to promote a new album? Or is she just trying to heal from the damages of a hurtful and abusive relationship with a much older man?
