In a statement to People, the 47-year-old rockstar spoke out about HBO's upcoming movie Jagged, branding the film "salacious."

"I agreed to participate in a piece about the celebration of Jagged Little Pill's 25th anniversary and was interviewed during a very vulnerable time (while in the midst of my third postpartum depression during lockdown). I was lulled into a false sense of security and their salacious agenda became apparent immediately upon my seeing the first cut of the film," Morisette explained.

The statement continued as the "Head Over Feet" singer opened up about the differing ideas between the creators and herself as she said, "This is when I knew our visions were in fact painfully diverged. This was not the story I agreed to tell. I sit here now experiencing the full impact of having trusted someone who did not warrant being trusted."

"I have chosen not to attend any event around this movie for two reasons: one is that I am on tour right now. The other is that, not unlike many 'stories' and unauthorized biographies out there over the years, this one includes implications and facts that are simply not true," she revealed about her current status with the project.

Morrisette maintained that she will stay devoted to her authentic vision and the story that she knows to be true. "While there is beauty and some elements of accuracy in this/my story to be sure — I ultimately won't be supporting someone else's reductive take on a story much too nuanced for them to ever grasp or tell," the singer/songwriter concluded.

"It's a really hard thing to see a movie made about yourself and I think she's incredibly brave and her reaction when she saw it was that it was a really–she could feel all the work, all the nuance that went into it," the director stated.
