“Not the Story I Agreed to Tell” – Alanis Morissette Fires Back At HBO ‘Jagged’ Documentary

NOTE: This article is 3 years old and may not include the most recent information.

Alanis Morissette has released a statement following multiple reports regarding statutory rape allegations made by the singer as part of the new documentary that made the rounds on social media on Monday.

See the full statement from Morissette below:

I agreed to participate in a piece about the celebration of Jagged Little Pill’s 25th anniversary and was interviewed during a very vulnerable time (while in the midst of my third postpartum depression during lockdown). I was lulled into a false sense of security and their salacious agenda became apparent immediately upon my seeing the first cut of the film. This is when I knew our visions were in fact painfully diverged. This was not the story I agreed to tell. I sit here now experiencing the full impact of having trusted someone who did not warrant being trusted. I have chosen not to attend any event around this movie for two reasons: one is that I am on tour right now. The other is that, not unlike many “stories” and unauthorized biographies out there over the years, this one includes implications and facts that are simply not true. While there is beauty and some elements of accuracy in this/my story to be sure — I ultimately won’t be supporting someone else’s reductive take on a story much too nuanced for them to ever grasp or tell.
