Hey, Alanis Morissette?
You’ve already won me over, in spite of me [DYING to know what Joey Gladstone did to deserve the alleged “You Oughta Know” dedication].
So don’t be alarmed if I fall head over feet [Again — The first time was of course, when Jagged Little Pill forever changed my adolescent life].
Don’t be surprised if I love you, for all that you are [Including, but not limited to, your cameo on “Sex and the City” when you and Carrie kissed].
I couldn’t help it. It’s all your fault.
Alanis Morissette has been awesome for almost two decades. And the reigning “Queen of Alt-Rock Angst” isn’t just using her celebrity status to call attention to environmental issues or take on the role of God anymore.
Morissette was recently photographed, au naturel, on a Hawaiian beach. After years of near-constant scrutiny, this kind of photographic attention should come as no surprise to a star on vacation — But instead of getting pissed about her lack of privacy, Morissette used the opportunity to promote positive body image with her bedazzled bikini bottom that spelled out “Self Love.”
Her simple, direct message essentially took the power away from the tabloids that might have normally jumped at the opportunity to criticize her post-baby curves (her son, Ever, is two). It also goes to show that “celebrity beach bodies” aren’t even realistic for celebrities! And even though I can’t condone rhinestones on clothing, I can definitely get behind a butt with a message like that (in a totally not weird way).
