Zoom with Alanis Morisette

Your pre-scripted questions for the conversation with Alanis Morissette are thoughtful and cover a broad range of topics, delving into her experiences, evolution, spirituality, and creative process. Here's the content you provided:

1. Alanis

   - I thought I would start with big picture questions.

   - What got you to the place of anger and angst that gave you and the world Jagged Little Pill?

   - Was it childhood? Was it assholes? What birthed it?

   - Follow-up question: Where was spirituality for you at that time? If any.


2. Alanis

   - Jagged Little Pill was almost 30 years ago, so now we are old. Can you tell me about your journey?

   - How did you evolve? What was the catalyst that drove you towards wholeness and peace?

   - Can you condense 30 years into this short conversation?

   - I mentioned in my video that this newest album was the "been to hell and back" Alanis with scars. But less sting. Am I right? I'd like to know the deep parts. If you are willing.


3. Alanis

   - Can you expand on your experience with spirituality?

   - I read you were raised Catholic. In "Such Pretty Forks," you use Jewish and Christian myth in "Ablaze." And "Her" is drenched in the Hindu tradition, in which I cry every time.

   - What are your practices for taking care of your inner life, your soul?

   - And how much has that played into who you are today?


4. Alanis

   - What gives you life? What ignites your soul?


5. Alanis

   - If you were to draw a map of your life journey to this point, how would you describe the different seasons and how each season formed you?

   - And how would you describe the season you are currently in?


6. Alanis

   - A little lighter, what is your creative process like?

   - Do songs just come to you, or do you have disciplined times when you write? Or other ways?

   - And what song means the most to you that you have written? And why?


7. Alanis

   - If you were me, what question would you ask you?


8. Alanis

   - Have you watched Ted Lasso?


It's clear that your questions aimed to create a meaningful and comprehensive dialogue. The decision to keep the answers private due to the sacredness of the conversation shows respect for the depth and intimacy of the discussion.
