Alanis Morissette’s Celebrity Targets Paris Hilton?!
Oooo child, you may incur the wrath of the heiress/model/singer/fashion designer/party girl/DJ/everything ever if you be making scathing songs about her!
Alanis Morissette is oh so close to releasing Havoc and Bright Lights (August 28th people!) and just yesterday we exclusively previewed the haunting track Celebrity, which obviously targets hollywood starlets whose whole life is about becoming, and staying, famous.
But that doesn’t sound like Paris Hilton at all! Ha!
In a recent interview, Alanis was asked if the song IS specifically about the hotel heiress, to which she replied:
“(Laughs) No comment. But, you know, I think fame became exciting for me in the late 90s because I could actually use it as a means to an end. I could actually have it help me serve my vocationfulness. I could offer comfort and upliftment and be a leader and take on that responsibility, rather than see it as this daunting thing. Fame became a great tool. But I still have PTSD from the Jagged Little Pill era. It was a profound violation. It felt like every millisecond I was attempting to set a boundary and say no and people were breaking into my hotel rooms and going through my suitcase and pulling my hair and jumping on my car.”
avoided stated, Ms. Morissette!
So who IS the “tattooed sexy dancing monkey Alanis sings about in Celebrity? We would LOVE to have a kiki with her! Ha!
