In her new documentary “Jagged,” Alanis Morissette reveals she was the victim of a rape.
The singer claims she was raped multiple times, according to The Washington Post, she says “years in therapy to even admit there had been any kind of victimization on my part.”
“I would always say I was consenting, and then I’d be reminded like ‘Hey, you were 15, you’re not consenting at 15’,” she reportedly says. “Now I’m like, ‘Oh yeah, they’re all pedophiles. It’s all statutory rape’.”
The documentary will eventually premiere on HBO.
“You know a lot of people say, ‘Why did that woman wait 30 years? And I’m like ‘f*ck off’. They don’t wait 30 years. No one was listening or their livelihood was threatened or their family was threatened. The whole ‘why do women wait’ thing? Women don’t wait. Our culture doesn’t listen.”
