According to the “Ironic” singer, she wrote the 10 songs on “my whistle is wet”, before they started getting rejected.

“That’s when we started to give up, I asked everyone to stop so that I could go back under my rock and keep writing,” Morisette said. “I went back and wrote more, and then, when I was writing ‘what I Want to do that, it is the last song on the album… we got a phone call in order to meet the Numerous and Guy Oseary, Madonna’s label.”

Morissette said that she was afraid to go to the meeting because she was wearing sweatpants, but she said to her, “Who cares? Get In the car and go.”

According to Morissette, she had worked for eight years in the making, the show is not autobiographical.

“It’s not a direct semi-autobiographical short story,” she explained. “It’s a story about a family, but [the writer] Diablo Cody said she went to all of the characters in the songs, so in some ways, I relate to a lot of the people in a direct way.”
