Disturbing allegations were revealed in a new documentary released this week.
Singer Alanis Morissette, known for her 1995 hit album “Jagged Little Pill,” alleges that multiple men had sex with her when she was just 15 years old.
In the film, she begins by saying, “I’m going to need some help because I never talk about this.”
“It took me years in therapy to even admit there had been any kind of victimization on my part,” she continued.
“I would always say I was consenting, and then I’d be reminded like ‘Hey, you were 15, you’re not consenting at 15,’” she explains.
“Now I’m like, ‘Oh yeah, they’re all pedophiles. It’s all statutory rape,’” Morissette says.
It’s unclear exactly who she is referring to.
Morissette also doesn’t name any of her alleged abusers in the film.
To make matters worse, Morissette says that her calls for help were not answered, suggesting that the music industry was either complicit or ignored her allegations.
Morissette, who is now 47 years old, was a pop star in Canada in her youth.
More from Daily Wire:
Morissette said that people in the industry had ignored her in the past. “I did tell a few people and it kind of fell on deaf ears,” the singer said. “It would usually be a stand-up, walk-out-of-the-room moment.”Advertisement
The singer swept the Grammy Awards in 1996, winning “Album of the Year” and “Best Rock Album,” as well as two other awards.
The film is a glowing assessment of Morisette’s soaring career, which exploded with her first release. “Directed by the award-winning documentarian Alison Klayman, ‘Jagged’ takes a celebratory but nuanced look at Morissette’s life, building around a lively interview at her California home,” the Post wrote.

“The movie, which The Washington Post has viewed, chronicles Morissette as she goes from dance-pop prodigy in Canada to confessional poet-musician in Los Angeles several years later. It tracks her collaboration with producer Glen Ballard on the landmark 1995 album ‘Jagged Little Pill’; the 18-month-tour that followed as Morissette achieves and deals with the travails of megastardom; and the ceilings she broke for Taylor Swift, Beyoncé and other female artists,” the paper added.
Before the movie debuted, Morissette announced she would not attend the premier.
“It is unclear which aspects of the film she finds problematic,” the Post wrote. “Through much of the movie, the singer-songwriter, now 47, is an enthusiastic interview subject, reflecting on her years as generational avatar. There is little material that could be considered critical of Morissette from bandmates, collaborators, old friends, pundits and others who appear. Footage of Morissette from the 1990s tour promoting ‘Jagged Little Pill’ is revealing but not incriminating.”
