Alanis Morissette has slammed the makers of Jagged, an upcoming HBO documentary that focuses on the singer’s rise to fame and the release of her seminal album Jagged Little Pill.
In a statement, Morissette said, “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,” she added. “I sit here now experiencing the full impact of having trusted someone who did not warrant being trusted.”
Jagged was directed by Alison Klayman and is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this week.
Morissette has made it clear that she will be not attending any events surrounding the release, including the premiere.
“Not unlike many ‘stories’ and unauthorized biographies out there over the years, this one includes implications and facts that are simply not true,” the musician said.
