Alanis Morissette: Seventeen years ago, she was singing, "I wish nothing but the best for you both/ An older version of me/ Is she perverted like me/ Would she go down on you in a theatre/ Does she speak eloquently/ And would she have your baby/ I'm sure she'd make a really excellent mother." Now she's talking up breastfeeding her 16-month-old son: "I'll breastfeed and I'll be breastfeeding until my son is finished and he weans." Which could be until high school.
With all the hubbub about attachment parenting and breastfeeding (and breastfeeding on the cover of Time), is it any wonder that other celebrities are talking it up? Morissette, who is not a doctor but has played one (an obstetrician!) on TV, continued, "I think it afford the child, when he grows up, to have a lot less therapy to go to. For me, I protect his safety and his well-being and his attachment. That stage of development is a very important stage." Okay, but when he's older, tell him that the situations in Ironic are not really ironic—his English teachers will thank you (or you'll thank him, if you're homeschooling him):
And speaking of, a group of comedians, musicians and storytellers are putting on a show at Joe's Pub in June to celebrate the 17th Anniversary of Jagged Little Pill: "Hosted and curated by Carolyn Castiglia (Comedy Central, VH1, Our Hit Parade) and Mindy Raf, aka Leibya Rogers (College Humor, VH1). Like rain on your wedding day, you'll never forget this night." It's as good a time as any to pour one out for Uncle Joey.
