Alanis Morissette has had a pretty awesome career thus far and the coolness keeps coming. As a kid she was into the arts. In 1986 she was on the awesome show “You Can’t Do That On Television”. That’s that show where people hung out, did weird stuff, and got slimed all the time. That’s literally all I remember about it besides loving it as a kid. She would get a spot on “Star Search” and in 88 a publishing deal with MCA. In 91, her debut album “Alanis” was released. It was a pop album and she opened for Vanilla Ice and became known as “the Debbie Gibson” of Canada. Another album would come out, this time with a more ballad based theme.
It would be 1995 when “Jagged Little Pill” came out. Morissette would officially hit at this point. The album was HUGE. “You Oughta Know” was the first single, but followed by “All I Really Want”, “Hand In My Pocket”, “Ironic”, “You Learn”, and “Head Over Feet”. That’s six singles from this one album. That’s a huge debut on any musical level in any genre. From there we’ve had “Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie” with the single “Thank U” and the awesome MTV Unplugged performance. Listing the entire discography of awesome tracks by Morrisette would take a long time.
She’s also done some acting. She played “God” in Kevin Smith’s “Dogma”. She’s appeared on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and currently has a reoccurring role on “Weeds”. And is doing stage work on a project called “An Oak Tree”. She’s everywhere and seems to be having a great time doing it all and living her dreams. Alanis Morisette has a very bright presence and does well in everything she does. She deserves more props for that.
