Alanis has recorded a cover of John Lennon’s Happy Xmas (War is Over), and released a music video to go alongside it on Friday. Check out the video below!
Alanis has updated her official store with new merch for the holiday season! Check out some highlights below, and make sure to buy it while it’s on sale for the rest of November.
The gallery has been updated with captures from two interviews that Alanis took part in the late 1990s – the first a 1997 MuchMusic career special; the second from an appearance on The Charlie Ross Show from December 17, 1999 – as well as captures from the Feel Your Love music video. All are sourced from an old VHS tape, but are the best quality I’ve been able to find so far!
Awesome news for Alanis, Diablo Cody, and the cast & crew of Jagged Little Pill: The Musical as the Tony Awards announced their nominations today, and the show leads with 15 nominations! ABC13 reports…
NEW YORK — The sobering musical “Jagged Little Pill,” which plumbs Alanis Morissette’s 1995 breakthrough album to tell a story of an American family spiraling out of control, earned a leading 15 Tony Award nominations Thursday, as the Broadway community took the first steps to celebrate a pandemic-shortened season that upended the theater world.
There are three best musical nominees: “Jagged Little Pill,” “Moulin Rouge: The Musical” and “Tina – The Tina Turner Musical.” And there are five best play nominees: “Grand Horizons,” “The Inheritance,” “Sea Wall/A Life,” “Slave Play” and “The Sound Inside.”
Nipping on the heels of “Jagged Little Pill” for overall numbers of nominations is “Moulin Rouge!,” a jukebox adaptation of Baz Luhrmann’s hyperactive 2001 movie about the goings-on in a turn-of-the-century Parisian nightclub, that got 14 nods.
Two very different offerings are tied with 12: “Slave Play,” Jeremy O. Harris’ ground-breaking, bracing work that mixes race, sex, taboo desires and class, exploring the legacy of slavery in interracial sexual dynamics, and “Tina – The Tina Turner Musical,” which tells the rock icon’s life with songs that include “Let’s Stay Together” and “Proud Mary.”
The nominations were pulled from just 18 eligible plays and musicals, a fraction of the 34 shows the season before. During most years, there are 26 competitive categories; this year there are 25 with several depleted ones.
The category for best performance by an actor in a leading role in a musical had just one actor – Aaron Tveit from “Moulin Rouge!” One category – best musical revival – has no eligible shows at all and was cut.
In another sign of a strange season, the best score category – an honor for music and lyrics that is usually dominated by musicals – is filled this year with five plays.
Broadway theaters abruptly closed on March 12, knocking out all shows – including 16 that were still scheduled to open in the spring. The cutoff for eligibility for all shows was set at Feb. 19.
The nominations came from 10 new plays, four new musicals and four play revivals. Two high profile shows – “Freestyle Love Supreme” and “David Byrne’s American Utopia” – did not accommodate Tony voters and weren’t eligible.
The 2020 Tony Awards ceremony will be broadcast digitally and take place later this year, at a date still to be announced. It’s one of few bright spots for theater fans – Broadway will be shut down until at least May 30.
“Theater will survive,” James Monroe Iglehart, the nominations host, said during Thursday’s announcement.
The gallery has been updated with captures from the Jagged Little Pill music videos, including the alternate versions of Head Over Feet, captures from Thank U and The Reasons I Drink, as well as captures from Alanis’s appearance on MTV Cribs in 2000 and Fraggle Rock! earlier this year.

Hello, everyone, and welcome to the grand opening of Intellectually Alanis. As Alanis Morissette is my favourite singer, I felt like we were in desperate need of a site for her catered to the fanbase, so that’s exactly what I’ve created here. Owing to how long Alanis has been in the business, this site is obviously going to be missing heaps of information, but in time, I hope that we’ll one day have all of the information anyone would need on Alanis.
If you have anything to contribute to the site, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us!
