Alanis Morissette Is Blond — We Thought You Oughta Know (VIDEO)
Do blondes have more fun? Alanis Morissette says she was curious to find out.
The famous brunette debuted her lighter locks in an Insta-pic, telling fans, “New hair. girl needed to have a little fun ;) ps-- blondes are, in fact, treated differently. this is one of the many effects of work addiction recovery :) #spontaneity #easybreezy #makeupforlosttime #healing.”
To be fair, the look isn’t totally blond; the 40-year-old actually went for a dramatic take on ombre with several inches on either side of her center part staying dark brown and the rest bright blond. It’s not exactly our cup of tea but hey, if it makes Alanis happy, we’re happy!
As for that “work addiction recovery” she mentioned in the caption, the Canadian superstar recently sat down with Oprah (watch that interview up above) to reveal the unnerving effect fame had on her. Saying she had “PTSD” from her initial experience of being thrust into the spotlight, Alanis says she uses that particularly charged term to explain how “traumatized” she was.
“I think that on some level becoming famous and wanting fame, there’s some trauma,” Alanis explained. “The traumatized person, in this case, me, gets traumatized by the very thing I thought would be the balm. I thought that all would be helped and soothed and healed by fame.”
Fingers crossed everything’s looking sunnier for Alanis these days!
