Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god! The bitch is back! Perhaps it is a symptom of being a Canadian product of the ‘90s, but Alanis Morissette will forever and always be my girl. She is just so goddamn cool and we would obviously be best friends if we ever met each other. She also was the original arm candy of Ryan Reynolds, before that harlot Scar-Jo got her claws in there (I’m sorry Scarlett, I mean no harm).

If you have never spent an evening screaming/crying/singing songs from Jagged Little Pill into an invisible microphone while whipping your hair around like a lunatic, well… you have not lived at all. That being said, I was overwhelmed with emotions when I discovered that the queen of angst has a new album in the works, scheduled for release on August 28 of this year. Havoc and Bright Lights will be her first studio release in four years. In celebration of this momentous occasion, I bring you a list of highlights from the almost two decades of joy this wunderkind musician, producer and actress has brought to us. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed taking this beautiful walk down memory lane.
