Alanis Morissette remembers a more challenging time

90's pop icon and female rockstar, Alanis Morissette remembers a time when radio stations wouldn't play Jagged Little Pill if they already had a female artist on queue.

Alanis Morissette performs onstage at the 25th anniversary MusiCares 2015 Person Of The Year Gala honoring Bob Dylan.

Morissette appeared on This Morning to celebrate 25 years of Jagged Little Pill. It was during the interview that Morissette revealed radio stations were initially reluctant to play the record breaking album.

“Even when it was given to the radio, a lot of their reception was, ‘We’re already playing a female artist, we’re already playing Sinead O’Connor,'” Morissette said. “I got a lot of rejection beforehand.”

She goes on to talk more about postpartum depression, her emotions behind her music, and so much more.
