Alanis Morissette's heartfelt songs tell tales of broken relationships, troubles with eating disorders and other heavy topics, earning her the moniker "Queen of Alt-Rock Angst" by none other than Rolling Stone.

Morrissette has also won some pretty major music awards, including American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, the Grammy Award, the Juno Awards and MTV Music Video Awards.
