Alanis Explains Her Humps!!!!

| Filed under: CanadialandAlanis Morissette


She has never talked about it before….

Until now!

Alanis Morissette caused an Internet sensation when she decided to do a stripped-down, piano-only version of the Black Eyed Peas' My Humps.

And, she even made a hilarious video for it, which has now been seen on YouTube by almost 15 million people.

When the song and video first hit the Net, Alanis was hounded for interviews about it but she refused to discuss it.

She wanted to let it speak for itself and let us interpret it as we may.

Well, Miz Morissette is finally shedding some light into what lead her to make her lovely lady lumps homage.

The Canadian singer explains to the new issue of The Advocate:

There are 15 different interpretations, and they’re all true. Some of it is me not being precious at all. I was in the studio with Guy Sigsworth and he would say, “What horse from the apocalypse are you bringing in today, Alanis?” Because every song was this tsunami of emotions. So I said, “I wish I could just write a really simple song—a song like ‘My Humps.’ ” Then we had a pregnant pause, looked at each other, and said, “All right, let’s do it!” Within moments we were recording the piano version of it, and within a week we were shooting the video in my garage here at my house. However it’s been interpreted has been entertaining for me to watch.

And there you have it.

    She reminds me of Sarah Jessica Parker. In an equine sort of way.

    Why dont u do a "seperated at birth" with Alanis and Sarah Jessica Parker. They look like twins. Both horse faces!!!!

    Who cares what Alanis's songs deeply mean to her. I hope she isn't actually incorporating this intellectual snobbery into her personality.
    How condescending. It is small of her.
    She should leave this kind of stuff to Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and the likes. Don't go there Alanis.

    Pretty cool! :)

    Everyone needs to go on youtube and listen to STRAITJACKET, which is Alanis' "You Oughta Know" song to RYAN!! It's fucking amazing…

  15. Mark says – reply to this

  16. Captai says – reply to this


    I would love to play motorboat with Alanis' humps…..

    Really? I always wondered what that video was about. Was she being sarcastic? Was it a joke? Was she debasing Fergi? OMG…I am so relieved that she cleared that up. NOT. Who flippin cares???? It was the most pathetic attempt for attention that I have ever seen. I was thrilled when it was finally put to rest…and now this? Thanks Perez. Really. Great. Hump(f).

  19. tyler says – reply to this


    Who the fuck cares? Stupid fucking Canadiens.

  20. 20

    That video was fucking hilarious.

    And, Alanis looks DAMN hot in that photo. I'm still crying over the fact that she and Ryan Reynolds won't be breeding.

    i thought she explained before. i am sure that she has said she wishes she could do a simple song like my humps and its why she recorded it.

  30. Heat f says – reply to this


    Makes me prouder to be a Canadian. Alanis is Queen. Love it, love it, love it, eh.

  31. D. says – reply to this


    I am reminded of a Tori Amos singing Smells Like Teen Spirit rip off… Alanis is not as cool as Tori!

  32. Jennif says – reply to this


    that video was hysterical!

  33. tracy says – reply to this


    What I like best about this video are the men. They're all middle-aged, fat, with cheap suits and wife-beater t-shirts. I love when the one guy raises his arms up over his head and you can see his big fat belly. Awesome! Cuz come on… those are the guys trying to touch your lumps at the club… in Jersey anyway!

  34. Shanny says – reply to this


    I'm sorry but she totally just copied "My Dumps" by Peaches. THe song sounds exactly the same. If you're gonna be so unoriginal to cover a song, at least make it sound different from a different version already out there. UGH!

  35. Mark says – reply to this


    Re: Shanny

    well in fact Peaches made the cover after Alanis.

  36. midi says – reply to this


    Alanis can actually sing–the other chick is terrible.

  37. pc says – reply to this


    that lame song has never sounded better. good to see Alanis' attitude back and she is looking mighty hot!

  38. Yes! says – reply to this


    Her version is FANTASTIC! It's the only time I've ever listened to that stupid song in full

  39. Redd says – reply to this


    Friend of mine knew her in high school. She used to drive around in a convertible blasting her own music. Mixed feelings re her (as if she cares) - do like that she speaks in words with more than two syllables, which most singers can't seem to do. Don't like that she takes herself wayyyy too seriously. Reminds me of those college kids that go hiking through South America or Thailand on daddy's expense account then come back full of faux philosophy and hemp laced birkenstocks spouting about how they've been spiritually awakened. Tiresome. Not every sentence has to contain some pretentious faux literary reference, Alanis.

    This totally smacks of Tori Amos' version of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" - BTDT.

  50. Martha says – reply to this


    Alanis is FIERCE! She's gorgeous and one of the most talented artists.

  51. REDF says – reply to this


    she doesnt dissappoint
    her work is at its best when shes fucking stuck, angry
    whats the actress with the humps that is engaged to her old man?
    didnt "the actress" fail at creating non pop music?
    anyway… fucking love you Miz Morissette

  52. birdy says – reply to this


    I think she is showing how so much of the new music is stupid, and the music video's are dumb as all get out. On a postive note Al can sing the phone book and make it sound good.

  53. kristi says – reply to this


    that is fucking rediculously funny! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! she is such a dumbass. i couldnt even watch more than 20 seconds of it; just makes you cringe at the utter stupidity of it!
