Last night, I attended ‘A Conversation with Alanis Morissette,’ hosted by Rolling Stone editor Anthony DeCurtis. Yup! Little ol’ me was in the presence of music biz royalty, y’all!

Besides a few awkward moments, the entire conversation was blistering and brilliant. Alanis spoke with such eloquence and depth, that at times, I felt like my brain was freezing with splendidness.

The woman is so deep, she’s a gaping hole! (Compliment, people.)

But for real, besides the fact that she’s been a revolutionary comet for women in music, she also came across as enlightened and vulnerably potent; an undeniably genuine human being.

Below are a few of my favorite quotes from the night:

“I feel like I have these gifts, and if I don’t use them, things start to go terribly wrong.”

“We’re all expressing pieces of God every day, whether we know it or not.”

“The songwriting process is exhausting and effortless at the same time.”

“I’m an alpha woman – and there’s tons of us – and at one point, we would have been burned at the stake and had our heads chopped off, but now we’re being championed. There’s never been a greater time to be a woman.”

“Marriage and committed relationships are a hotbed for healing.”

Love her!

Havoc and Bright Lights, Morissette’s eighth studio album, is out now.
