Alanis Morissette Always Carries Around a Bikini: What’s In My Bag?.

Forget the tired old jokes about how the lyrics to “Ironic” aren’t really ironic, because Alanis Morissette’s “Jagged Little Pill” has been responsible for more great pop culture than many naysayers would like to admit. Alanis Morissette may oversing on numerous songs here, but the emotional rubble she sifts through for meaningful nuggets has as much weight now as it did when the landmark record was first released.

, the self-described “hippie-eco girl,” searches for shopping ideas on Instagram. “I found almost everything in [my bag] from following small stores,” says the Grammy Award winner, 41, whose album Jagged Little Pill: Collector’s Edition is out Friday, Oct. 30. After clocking up 15 million US sales in the last 20 years (according to Nielsen SoundScan), the Canadian rocker’s 1995 album gets rereleased with bonus material on Friday.

It’s easy to understand why the album – reissued/remastered here in a four-disc collector’s edition, with previously unreleased demos, a live concert in London from 1995, and photos/essay – struck such a chord. The mom of Ever, 4 — with rapper husband Mario “Souleye” Treadway — shows Us Weekly the “magical treasures” she keeps in her Newbark clutch. “I’ve got a bag of arugula for my son, and GoodBites’ raw chocolate truffle balls for me. Aside from inspiring numerous modern pop songwriters with the unflinching honesty of songs like “You Oughta Know” and “Hand in My Pocket,” Morissette-mania is evident in wider circles. “Infinite Jest” author David Foster Wallace was a proud fan — something that’s portrayed by Jason Segel playing him in the new movie “The End of the Tour.” Without Alanis, so much of modern pop culture wouldn’t exist in the way we know it now.

The singer-songwriter admits she felt disconnected from the world and even had suicidal thoughts. “The Insider With Yahoo” correspondent Louis Aguirre caught up with the “Ironic” singer to go inside the difficulties she’s faced while living in the spotlight. “It was really challenging,” Alanis ex “Alanis Morissette Opens Up About Struggles With Postpartum Depression: ‘It Was Like Being Covered in Tar’” is categorized as “entertainment”. You never know when you’ll be near a pool or an ocean — or if I’m up north, up a creek!” Also in Morissette’s clutch: a Mercado Global wallet, an iPhone 6 Plus, an iPad Mini, Thieves spray, a car key, Garrett Leight California sunglasses, Eden Foods organic matcha tea, Juniper Ridge white sage and wild mint tea, Hope Gillerman jaw clenching remedy, Poppy & Someday Kapha spray, Dr. Alkaitis lip balm, Booda Butter lip balm, a vitamin box, Fat and the Moon Lip & Cheek Stain, RMS Beauty Living Luminizer, a first aid kit (with Angry Birds Band-Aids!), Mineral Fusion lipstick, RMS Beauty Tinted UnPowder, Primal Pit Paste, a mini Mason Pearson brush, Pratima Saffron Eye Ghee, May Lindstrom Skin’s The Blue Cocoon, Kjaer Weis Illusion concealer, and doTERRA Deep Blue Rub. Back in 2011, she took to the stage in Nebraska with the lyrics, “I recommend getting your heart trampled on to anyone” – taken directly from Morissette’s single “You Learn” — written on her arm.

Other Canadians have picked up the pop-rock baton since 1995, but they still give praise to Alanis. “She was, like, this chick who was rocking out, just kind of speaking her mind, and I thought she was really genuine,” remembered Lavigne in 2005. During that time, they worked on early versions of songs such as “Paranoid Android” and “Karma Police.” “The reason we’re playing [the new songs] is because we have to make an album soon, and we need the rehearsals,” singer Thom Yorke told an audience in Mansfield, Mass., on one date.
