Alanis Morissette Criticizes HBO Doc Jagged As Salacious & Reductive
Canadian superstar Alanis Morissette has spoken out and criticized the HBO documentary, Jagged, that follows her early career and rise to fame. The singer shot to public attention in 1995 with her internationally released major label debut, “Jagged Little Pill.” The album became a global sensation and made Morissette a household name in the world of alternative rock and one of the most popular recording artists of the ’90s.
The enduring legacy of Jagged Little Pill is such that HBO commissioned the documentary Jagged, detailing Morissette’s life and career at the time. However, according to THR, the Ottawa native has unexpectedly spoken out against the documentary, labeling it salacious & reductive. She accuses HBO of misleading her over the direction the movie would take, and has refused to support its release. The Washington Post was the first to report that the star would not be attending the Toronto International Film Festival screening of the movie, and following an interview with THR, the 47 year old had the following to say:
“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.” – Source
