Season 5 Episode 523
CC | tv-pg
Twenty years ago, Alanis Morissette found herself thrust into the spotlight and was assumed to be the type of rockstar who found comfort in never-ending music and impromptu jam sessions. The reality, she says, was—and still is—much more "boring."

"I don't jam," Alanis says. "I just love silence."

In the above video, the Grammy winner describes what unusual thing she prefers to do when she hangs out with other people, and she reflects on what it is about Sundays that she finds so sacred. Plus, find out the one common thread that appears in Alanis' favorite music and how she likes to steep her soul, aside from songwriting.
