Inthere were plenty of angsty lady rockers with more rage and credibility than Alanis Morissette. Back home in Canada, she was known for the pair of dance-pop albums she released before graduating high school. But Morissette was no fraud.

It's hard to believe we learned the 13 songs on Jagged Little Pill the same summer we were falling in love with Cluelessbut it's simple to understand how much of a punch these 33 lines still pack today. From "Right Through You" You took me for a joke You took me for a child You took a long hard look at my ass And then played golf for a while Your shake is like a fish You pat me on the head You took me out to wine, dine, 69 me But didn't hear a damn word I said.

AS the most important and successful female music star of the Nineties, Alanis Morissette fearlessly pushed the cultural boundaries at every opportunity. And as I revealed in this column last week, her highly anticipated musical Jagged Little Pill is about to shatter every Broadway and West End taboo with a MeToo movement-inspired storyline featuring a harrowing on-stage rape. Now, in an exclusive interview, the singer-songwriter behind iconic hits such as You Oughta Know, You Learn, Thank U and Uninvited — has spoken for the first time about the very real need for such a provocative scene.
