"I was never much into alcohol. I prefer marijuana," she said. "Marijuana is like shining a flashlight onto your unconscious." Morissette told High Times magazine in 2009, "As an artist, there's a sweet jump-starting quality to [marijuana] for me...So if ever I need some clarity... it's a quick way for me to get to it."
In 2018, Phair's former label, Matador, released a 25th-anniversary retrospective of her debut album, Exile in Guyville. Morissette's breakthrough album Jagged Little Pill turns 25 this year, and last year a Broadway musical based on the album premiered.
Phair: Thanks in large part to you.
Morissette: I saw that the wave was coming, and I had the surfboard. I’m like, “Let me get up there on the crest.” It was so ready to change.
Phair added, "Now, there are so many young women making music of all sorts, with their visions intact. They wear whatever they want. They make the video the way they want. They play keyboards, drums, whatever. They’re autonomous in a way that I couldn’t have dreamed of back then."
Phair said she felt "cheated" out of their tour this year. "But we're going to do it next summer," Morissette noted. "There's a lot of important work going on right now that we need to make space for."
