Alanis Morissette has expressed that she does not support the recent HBO documentary based on her life and career.

For the doc, Alanis Morissette sat down with the crew for hours to be interviewed.

She said that the final product was "salacious" and "reductive."

The title of the documentary is 'Jagged' and it details the singer's rise to fame in her early 20s, leading to the release of her hit album 'Jagged Little Pill'.

It features a number of music critics and talking heads discussing the singer's importance to the music industry. It also delves into Morissette’s history of alleged sexual abuse.

'Jagged' will air on HBO on 19 November after its recent premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The release of the doc is in line with the 25th anniversary of her iconic album's release.

In a statement issued by her publicist, Alanis Morissette expressed that she was unhappy with the film and won't be supporting it.

She wrote that for 'Jagged', directed by Alison Klayman, she was interviewed "during a very vulnerable time" in the midst of her "third postpartum depression during lockdown."

She said: "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.

"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," she continues.

"Not unlike many ‘stories’ and unauthorized biographies out there over the years, this one includes implications and facts that are simply not true.

"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."

Alanis Morissette is currently on a world tour to coincide with the anniversary of 'Jagged Little Pill'.
