Alanis Morissette Is Back To Writing Breakup Songs, Back To Having An Audience

I kinda feel dorky liking the Alanis Morissette's new single "Incomplete" as much as I do. She performed it this morning on The View, and as adult contemporary as it is, I was really feeling it. Maybe it's because she's just really fucking good at writing breakup songs. (The whole album is supposed to be a reflection on her 4 1/2 year relationship and subsequent breakup with Ryan Reynolds, who later got engaged to Scarlett Johansson right quick.) The Catch-22 about being a writer/musician/artist who looks to his or her own personal life for source material is that your best work is usually based on your worst experiences. When Morissette was happy with Reynolds we didn't hear much from her, did we? Isn't it ironic? Clip above.
