Alanis Morissette

Alanis Morissette’s former business manager has been sentenced to six years’ imprisonment after he stole more than £5.4 million from the singer and others he worked for, it has been reported.

Jonathan Schwartz, 47, had previously admitted stealing around $5 million from the Canadian singer-songwriter between the years 2010 and 2014, and approximately $2 million from five other unnamed clients in the same time period.

He was sentenced on Wednesday (May 3rd) in the Federal Court of Los Angeles, by Judge Dolly Gee who exceeded the 63-month sentence requested by prosecutors in sending Schwartz down.

Alanis Morissette James Corden

Alanis Morissette’s 1996 hit ‘Ironic’ has taken a lot of flack over the years for some of its less-than-ironic lyrics (is rain on your wedding day really ironic?). But on Monday night’s edition of James Corden's 'Late Late Show', the song was given a modern re-working that we can all get behind.

Alanis MorissetteAlanis Morissette has reworked ‘Ironic’ for the 21st century.

Wearing in a red beanie hat, resembling the one she wore in the song’s video, Morissette sat down for an acoustic rendition of the hit, with a few different lyrics. ’An old friend sending you a Facebook request and only find out they're racist after you accept,' Morissette began, before she was joined by host James Corden dressed in a matching outfit.

Almost 20 Years On, Dave Coulier Is Still Hung Up On Alanis Morissette's "You Oughta Know "


Alanis Morissette Dave Coulier

Since it came out in 1995, Alanis Morisette’s You Oughtta Know has been repurposed as the anthem of thousands of bad breakups. But to the many Alanis fans, who have burnt pictures of their exes to the tune of Morisette’s hit, Dave Coulier would like you to know: it wasn’t about him. Coulier, whose career piqued in the 90s, is mostly known for two things – playing Joey on Full House and being the inspiration behind Alanis Morisette’s angsty breakup track – sort of like the Taylor Swift/John Mayer relationship of the generation, for anyone born after 1999.

Alanis Morissette
Alanis Morissette might be over it by now, but Coulier sure isn't.

In a recent interview, Coulier confirmed that he and Morissette dated, but there's no way he had anything to do with those now 19-year-old lyrics.

Coldplay's 'Ghost Stories' And The Five Best Breakup Albums Of All Time


Coldplay Abba Adele Bon Iver Alanis Morissette Amy Winehouse

Coldplay’s new album Ghost Stories has been released, to quite a mixed bag of reviews. When just three weeks after the album’s track listing had been announced Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow announced their “conscious uncoupling” we all had a pretty good idea what the tone of the album would be like. With tracks like “Another’s Arms,” “Always in my Head” and “Magic,” it became pretty self-explanatory that "Ghost Stories" was going to be a breakup album.

Coldplay Breakup Albums "Ghost Stories" focuses on the marriage breakup between Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow

Perhaps he was inspired to call the album “Ghost Stories” as some of these breakup albums have been the some of the most hauntingly heartbreaking albums ever released.

Celebrity Engagements That Didn't Last


Naya Rivera Big Sean Jennifer Lopez Ben Affleck Gwyneth Paltrow Brad Pitt Evan Rachel Wood Marilyn Manson Ryan Reynolds Alanis Morissette

The most shocking break up news of the week goes to Glee star Naya Rivera and now ex-fiancee Big Sean. The pair have called it quits amid rumours of infidelity and Rolex theft. Naya tweeted “@bigsean stealing rolexes from a lady’s house now. Maybe cuz I’m on Glee and making more money or something. #triflin.” Although the tweet was quickly removed, the plot is definitely thickening.

Naya Rivera Big Sean Naya Rivera and Big Sean have called time on their relationship

These others celebs also decided to end their very high profile engagements, although none of them accused each other of stealing expensive watches. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck AKA Bennifer were a bit of an odd couple to even begin with. In 2003 the couple were involved in an extremely high profile relationship, going so far as to co-star in a couple of god awful movies. The engagement was broken off in 2004, allegedly because Ben wasn’t ready to give up single life. Which makes sense because a year later he married Jennifer Garner. Burnnnnn.

Alanis Morissette Adapting 'Jagged Little Pill' Into Broadway Show


Alanis Morissette Green Day

Alanis Morissette is looking to bring her hit 1995 album Jagged Little Pill to the world of musical theatre, with the singer apparently working on the script for a musical adaption of the hit album. The singer and songwriter is working on a stage production, also set to be called Jagged Little Pill, that will contain some of the album's most famous songs, as well as some of her other material and some new songs made specifically for the show.

According to Playbill.com, Alanis' stage show will be given a 2014 workshop production and it will include the songs 'You Oughta Know,' 'Hand in My Pocket,' 'Ironic' and 'You Learn,' in addition to a collection of other songs, both new and from her existing catalogue.

Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning composer Tom Kitt, who worked on the stage adaption of Green Day's American Idiot, will write the orchestrated portions of the songs and provide new arrangements for the tracks so they translate better on to the stage. Vivek J. Tiwary, who also worked on American Idiot, will produce alongside Arvind Ethan David. No director or arrival date for the show has been announced.

Alanis Morissette, Havoc And Bright Lights Album Review


Amazingly, it's 17 years since Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill stormed the charts. Her new record, Havoc And Bright Lights, is her fifth album since that moment where she graduated from being a pop princess to an angry young woman. While time is a healer, it's clear that she's still angry. The focus of her attention may have changed over the years, but her use of song writing as personal catharsis certainly hasn't.

Morissette Disappointed By 'Sex And The City' Lesbian Kiss


Alanis Morissette Sarah Jessica Parker

Alanis Morissette expressed disappointment during an on-screen kiss with Sarah Jessica Parker. The couple kissed as part of an episode of 'Sex and the City' in 1999, in which Morissette played a lesbian. The 34-year-old actress has appeared in multiple shows like 'Nip/Tuck' and 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' before making a cameo in 'Sex and the City'.

During the episode 'Boy, Girl, Boy Girl', Morrissette had to kiss Carrie Bradshaw - the character played by Parker. However, Morrissete has now admitted that the steamy scene wasn't as thrilling as one might think. Morrisette explained: "I kissed Sarah Jessica Parker. I played a lesbian in 'Sex and the City' and I had to kiss her. I have experimented with same-sex relationships in my life, but it wasn't about enjoyment with Sarah Jessica. Her character was supposed to be reluctant about getting involved, so it wasn't a passionate kiss - it was a reticent one, which is the reason I didn't enjoy it."
