There’s a new documentary coming to HBO called Jagged that tells the story of Alanis Morissette’s groundbreaking album Jagged Little Pill, as well as some pretty heavy admissions.
According to the Washington Post, Alanis claims she was raped multiple times by multiple men while she was just 15 and working her way through the predatorial world of child pop music.
“I’m going to need some help because I never talk about this,” Morissette said in the documentary before she discusses the subject, reports the Post. “It took me years in therapy to even admit there had been any kind of victimization on my part. “I would always say I was consenting, and then I’d be reminded like ‘Hey, you were 15, you’re not consenting at 15.’ Now I’m like, ‘Oh yeah, they’re all pedophiles. It’s all statutory rape.'”
Morissette did not name her alleged abusers. She said she did tell people at the time, but it “kind of fell on deaf ears,” adding that, “It would usually be a stand-up, walk-out-of-the-room moment.”
The film is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Tuesday in Morissette’s native Canada, although the “Ironic” singer will surprisingly not be there. Morissette, 47, is reportedly distancing herself from the film for undisclosed reasons.
