There's such a pretty fork in the road and we're taking a detour from our usual Miss Thing format to catch up on all things Alanis Morissette.

We're also talking about the announcement of Alanis' first new album in 8 years, Such Pretty Forks In The Road (mouthful), its lead single Reasons I Drink (mugful), the announcement of a Jagged Little Pill 2020 tour with Garbage (!) and Liz Phair (!!), and Alanis' latest accolade: recipient of a Billboard Icon award.
