Three Questions With Alanis Morissette

Alanis Kiehls

My words can’t accurately describe the feeling you get when you interview one of your all-time favorite musicians…it’s really just astounding, for lack of a better word.  Luckily for me, Kiehl’s hosted their yearly Earth Day event at their Santa Monica store and I was given the opportunity to interview non other than Ms. Alanis Morissette.

Kiehl’s Since 1851 celebrated its Limited Edition Ultra Facial Cream, to benefit Recycle Across America, with its partners Alanis Morissette and Zachary Quinto, each who designed a limited edition label for the product.  100% of the proceeds of this Limited Edition Collection will benefit Recycle Across America–$50,000 will be used to create 65,000 recycling labels for  select K-12 schools nationwide.  So get it now.

Q: What made you decide to partner with Kiehl’s on this initiative?

A: I think standardized labeling is important…so people know where to put what and regardless of past efforts and goodwill, there’s been a lack of clarity that this organization will help with.

Q: What’s your favorite song on “Jagged Little Pill” (one of the best albums ever)?

A: I can’t really pick a favorite, but I’d say that I think “Mary Jane” was the most meaningful for me since it’s so emotional.

Q: What’s the best part about marriage and what’s the worst part?

A: The best part is that I actually have a friend and we’re helping each other out…the worst part…I don’t really have a worst part right now.  You know marriage is challenging, marriage is not for the weak of heart, but I don’t really have a worst part.

And, of course, here’s my obligatory photo with Alanis…had to, sorry.
