Alanis Morissette

Sheryl Interviews Alanis


It was an honor and a joy to speak with my dear friend Alanis Morissette back in August 2010 about her transition into marriage and the following year about her transition into her first pregnancy.

Consistent with her musical style, Alanis spoke with honesty and courage about the challenges she encountered during her transitions.




Interview on Marriage Transition

I’m deeply grateful for her willingness to help break the taboo that the engagement is supposed to be only a happy time and talk about her commitment to, in her words, “barrel through the fear thoughts” so that she could evolve toward love. I’m sure you will derive immense comfort and inspiration from her story.
