Funny, I just saw a Sex in the City episode where Morisette kissed Sarah Jessica Parker (spin the bottle episode). If no one believes Alanis Morisette swings both ways, they must be blind! Her last video, "Crazy," she played a lesbian (didn't like the video, but her version of the song was really good). This role on Nip/Tuck is no surprise!

Alanis who? Oh I'm sorry are we still concidering her famous and worthy of being on gossip sites. How long has it been since she's had a hit - 15 years?

Livewire prefers Alanis acting than singing because her music sucked real bad. Her stupid songs were like the sound of nails on a chalkboard.

Acting ain't much better, cause the has been is homely as hell.

Nip/Tuck is a great show. Why is it sullying itself with a non-actor guest star? Plus, when was the last time anyone cared about Alanis?
