Alanis Morissette Slams HBO Documentary ‘Jagged:’ It Includes “Facts That Are Simply Not True”
‘You Outta Know’ not to mess with Alanis Morissette!
The singer is not pleased with the upcoming HBO documentary Jagged, that documents her rise to fame.
In a statement provided to Deadline, Morissette wrote, ““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.”
Morissette skipped the film’s premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday (Sept. 13th) and told the magazine, “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.”
