Alanis Morissette was supposed to be part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Saturday night, but something made her bail at the last minute.
She was going to honor Carly Simon by singing “You’re So Vain” with Olivia Rodrigo. But after rehearsing Friday night, she bowed out. There’s no word what caused Alanis to defect, but in a post on her Instagram Story, she made it sound like she was disrespected because she’s a woman.
First, she said she “adores” Carly, Olivia, and all the other women who performed Saturday night. But she added that she’s in a place in her career where she no longer has to tolerate the, “overarching anti-woman sentiment” in the music industry.
That sentiment, according to Alanis, includes, “Condescension and disrespectfulness, reduction, dismissiveness, contract-breaching, unsupportiveness, exploitation and psychological violence (and more).”
She added, “I have had countless incredible experiences with production teams with all genders throughout my life. So many, and so fun. There is nothing better than a team of diverse people coming together with one mission. I’ll continue to show up in those environments with bells on.”
