Canadian singer Alanis Morissette has slammed "Jagged," a documentary about her life, just hours before it was to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) Tuesday.
The film, produced by HBO and for which Morissette gave hours of interviews, shows the rise of the 47-year-old Ottawa-born artist, from her appearance in the music world in the late 1980s to the 1995 release of album "Jagged Little Pill," which catapulted her to stardom.
Despite her collaboration with the filmmakers, the artist showed her displeasure with the final product on Tuesday and refused to participate in the premiere of the film, which will be broadcast on HBO on Nov. 19.
In a statement issued by her publicist, Morissette said that she agreed to participate in the documentary by director Alison Klayman to commemorate the 25th anniversary of "Jagged Little Pill," however "this was not the story I agreed to tell."
"I was lulled into a false sense of security and their salacious agenda became apparent immediately upon my seeing the first cut of the film. This is when I knew our visions were in fact painfully diverged," she said.
