In an interesting turn of events, Alanis Morissette has come out saying that reality shows like 'American Idol' and 'X Factor' don't do enough to nurture singer-songwriters. We don't think it's a coincidence that the news comes on the heels of Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban finalizing their own 'Idol' judging talks -- a role Morissette previously confirmed she was up for herself. Do you think it's an epiphany or just sour grapes?
Happy birthday, Alanis Morissette! We're celebrating the Canadian songstress turning 38 today, June 1, 2012. While her career has been a vast one with many album releases, there is no LP that really stands out as much as her angsty 1995 masterpiece 'Jagged Little Pill.' In honor of Ms. Morissette, who has a new album due out in the summer of 2012, we want you to vote on your favorite track off of 'Jagged Little Pill.'
The pressure is on on the 'X Factor' set as the final three contestants battle it out for the big win -- a $5 million recording contract -- and the trio couldn't be more varied. Singer-songwriter Josh Krajcik kicked off Wednesday's performances with a '90s-inspired tune, Alanis Morissette's 'Uninvited'... accompanied by a special guest.
Shh! Don't tell her ex-fiancee, the newly single Ryan Reynolds, but Alanis Morissette has recorded a new song, 'Into a King,' as an anniversary present for her husband, rapper Mario 'Souleye' Treadway. The couple has been married for a year -- May 22, to be exact -- and they are proud parents of a new son, Ever, who was born on Christmas Day 2010.
