Alanis Morissette has criticised the newly premiered documentary primarily based on her life, saying it comprises “implications and facts that are simply not true”.
Alison Klayman’s documentary Jagged premiered this week on the Toronto Worldwide Movie Competition. It contains an interview with the singer-songwriter and focuses on her profession trajectory, which started at a younger age.
In a brand new assertion supplied to Pitchfork, Morissette accused the group behind the documentary of getting a “salacious agenda” and reiterated she wouldn’t be attending the premiere.
“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 mentioned.
“I used to be lulled right into a false sense of safety and their salacious agenda turned obvious instantly upon my seeing the primary minimize of the movie. That is after I knew our visions had been the truth is painfully diverged. This was not the story I agreed to inform. I sit right here now experiencing the complete impression of getting trusted somebody who didn’t 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 unauthorised biographies on the market over time, this one contains implications and information which can be merely 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.”
Previous to Morissette’s new assertion, director Alison Klayman said she hoped the singer would ultimately come to embrace the documentary.
“It was a privilege to make this film and I’m really proud of it,” she mentioned. “Hopefully there will be other opportunities in the future for her to come to film events.”
It was beforehand reported that Morissette claims in the documentary that she was raped by five different men when she was 15 years outdated. Although she didn’t reveal particulars of the alleged rapists, Morissette mentioned she had beforehand instructed “a few people” about her claims however that “it kind of fell on deaf ears”.
“It took me years in therapy to even admit there had been any kind of victimisation on my part,” she reportedly mentioned within the movie.
“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 paedophiles. It’s all statutory rape’.”
