In a statement provided to People, Alanis claims the documentary is full of “facts that are simply not true”.
“I agreed to participate in a piece about the celebration of Jagged Little Pill‘s 25th anniversary and was interviewed during a very vulnerable time (while in the midst of my third postpartum depression during lockdown),” she shared. “I was lulled into a false sense of security and their salacious agenda became apparent immediately upon my seeing the first cut of the film.”
Alanis went on, “This is when I knew our visions were in fact painfully diverged. This was not the story I agreed to tell. I sit here now experiencing the full impact of having trusted someone who did not warrant being trusted.”
“I have chosen not to attend any event around this movie for two reasons: one is that I am on tour right now. the other is that, not unlike many ‘stories’ and unauthorized biographies out there over the years, this one includes implications and facts that are simply not true.”
She added, “While there is beauty and some elements of accuracy in this/my story to be sure — I ultimately won’t be supporting someone else’s reductive take on a story much too nuanced for them to ever grasp or tell.”
Recently, Alanis opened up about her postpartum depression in a candid conversation.
Jagged is expected to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival this week.
