In response to Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong’s recent onstage meltdown—in which the singer launched a profanity-studded rant about his merits and longevity in the music industry, while decrying said industry and Justin Bieber, all because the contractually agreed-upon time to end the show had come and he didn’t feel like doing it—Alanis Morissette has elected to begin covering Green Day’s “Basket Case” live, and has spoken out in Armstrong’s defense.

Things certainly seem to be getting a bit wacky at American Idol—the long-running reality TV contest is currently on the hunt for new judges, and after nabbing professional nut Mariah Carey, rumors abounded that Kanye West and Nicki Minaj would be added to the roster. While that seemed a smidge unlikely, it seems they’ve reached out to yet another (slightly less currently luminous) pop star—Alanis Morissette.

90s singer/songwriter Alanis Morissette is back in the spotlight again, although not becaused she penned another catchy tune about a word (“Ironic”) whose definition she misunderstands.
Spinner is reporting that Morissette, who recently revealed she was pregnant after marrying rapper Souleye last May, had a baby scan that confirmed the sex of the child. It’s a boy, and more importantly, not Dave Coulier’s son! Perhaps we can finally lay the “You Oughta Know” controversy to rest and pay more attention to this positive news.

Ah, Alanis. What can be said about her than what has already been said (outside of redundant trash-talk involving Dave Coulier and Scarlett Johannsen)? Quite a lot, actually. From bursting upon the alternative scene with her international debut album Jagged Little Pill, to a freaking adorable appearance on a bi-curious-esque episode of “Sex & the City”, Morissette was the It Girl [slash] alt-inclusive doll of the 90′s. And what a darling she was, and is. Much to the delight to the major SoCal area, she will be gracing the stage at the Orpheum Theatre this Thurday and Friday, November 13th and 14th, at 8:00 pm.
For some reason or another, her albums following Some Former Infatuation Junkie in 1998 didn’t hurtle forward with as much steam in the opinion of even her most die-hard fans. It seemed for a while that an overall view of leveled-out on a grassy green plateau as she settled into domestic bliss with actor Ryan Reynolds. Let it be said that the world will never know to what extent the white-hot flame crackled to a faintly glowing ember; however, never to doubt Morissette’s talents, this writer would like to think that being launched into such disenchanted wonderment is one of the more efficient ways to secure one’s vision of all things relative – on either end of whatever spectrum.
