Alanis Morissette brought her classic hit “You Oughta Know” to the New York City Times Square stage for a rendition of the song from the Broadway show Jagged Little Pill, which is inspired by the singer’s album of the same name.
Her performance with the Broadway cast was amazing but fans were confused by Morissette’s performance since it featured a different rendition of a hit song that fans know so well. There were also several glitches and unidentified censored parts of the performance, which was even more confusing to the fans watching.
The broadway actress Lauren Patten who performed the song with Morissette dropped the f-bomb during the performance which was encouraged by Morissette prior to the show as she sang the lyrics, “are you thinking of me when you f—her?.” That is where the mysterious censored portions of the performance came from. Not only was that part censored, but also when Morissette sang the lyrics “Would she go down on you in a theater?”
“She told me to,” Patten said in a statement to Variety, “She said, ‘say it.’ She said she always says that, and [told me] you are going to say it, too.”
Morissette’s vocals stunned and outshined the mishaps of the censored portion of the show and fans adored the 90’s hit single on the live broadcast.
Morissette is set to perform her classic album, Jagged Little Pill, in its entirety this year on her upcoming 31-date tour which kicks off this summer in June, just a month after she released her new album, Such Pretty Forks In The Road.
