” Secondly, I asked Alanis, ‘I’m obtaining calls by the media and they would like to know that this person is.’ And she stated, ‘Well, you understand maybe a number of individuals. You can say whatever you want.’.
” So one time, I was doing a red carpet someplace as well as (the press) just wore me down as well as everybody wanted to know so I stated, ‘Yeah, all right, I’m the individual. Then it came to be a snowball effect of, ‘OH!
Talking with “Watch What Happens Live” host Andy Cohen in December 2019, Morissette grinned when a customer questioned if she was tired of people asking if “You Oughta Know” was “around Uncle Joey from ‘Full House.'”.
