Alanis Nadine Morissette (born June 1, 1974 in Ottawa, Canada) is a Canadian-American alternative rock singer-songwriter, guitarist, record producer, and actress.
She has won 16 Juno Awards and seven Grammy Awards, was nominated for two Golden Globe Awards. Morissette began her career in Canada, and as a teenager recorded two dance-pop albums, Alanis and Now Is the Time, under MCA Records Canada. Her first international album was the rock-influenced Jagged Little Pill, released in 1995.
Jagged has sold more than 33 million units globally. Her following album, Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie, was released in 1998. Morissette took up producing duties for her subsequent albums, which include Under Rug Swept, So-Called Chaos and Flavors of Entanglement. Her eighth studio album, Havoc and Bright Lights, was released on August 28, 2012.
Morissette has sold more than 60 million albums worldwide. Morissette is also known for her powerful and emotive mezzo-soprano voice. She has been dubbed by Rolling Stone as the "Queen of alt-rock angst". Morissette was raised in a devout Roman Catholic family. She dated actor and comedian Dave Coulier for a short time in the early 1990s.
In a 2008 interview with the Calgary Herald, Coulier claimed to be the ex-boyfriend who inspired Morissette's song "You Oughta Know". Morissette, however, has maintained her silence on the subject of the song. Throughout her teen years and her 20's Morissette suffered from various eating disorders. She went on to recover from them and started to eat a healthier diet. In 2009 she ran a marathon promoting awareness for the National Eating Disorders Association. Morissette met Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds at Drew Barrymore's birthday party in 2002, and the couple began dating soon after.
They announced their engagement in June 2004. In February 2007, representatives for Morissette and Reynolds announced they had mutually decided to end their engagement. Morissette has stated that her album Flavors of Entanglement was created out of her grief after the break-up, saying that "it was cathartic".
Morissette became a US citizen in 2005, while maintaining her Canadian citizenship. On May 22, 2010, Morissette married rapper Mario “Souleye” Treadway (born May 3, 1980, in Boston, Massachusetts) in a private ceremony at their Los Angeles home. Their first child, Ever Imre Morissette-Treadway, was born on December 25, 2010.
