What inspires Alanis Morissette… aside from horrible break-ups?
Monday night the singer previewed her new album, Havoc and Bright Lights, to few hundred of her closest friends and industry insiders.
After playing all the songs off the album, Alanis treated the crowd to a little Q&A where she dished on her inspirations and her song writing process.
She described writing You Oughta Know (possibly the BEST angry girl songs ever written!) as a "desperate diary entry." HA!
The songstress also kikied about a song off her new album called Celebrity (CLICK HERE to hear it!), saying that it isn't about just one certain person in specifically. She claims the song, which is about a total fame-whore, is "a composite" of many people, including herself!
After chatting about songwriting, Morissette also spoke about one of her biggest inspirations for the album… feminism. She told her audience:
"This is a great time to be alive as a woman, especially an alpha woman. Artists are social activists, whether we want to be or not. I think parenting is the biggest activism there is on the planet."
Awwww! That is SO sweet!
She sure has come a long way since Jagged Little Pill!
