One of the biggest albums of the '90s alt-rock scene, Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill, is coming to the Broadway stage.
In the latest sign that Gen X culture has gone totally mainstream, Morissette announced on Friday that she would be turning her landmark 1995 LP into a Broadway musical, debuting in workshops some time in 2014. The concept is similar to other "jukebox musicals" based on hit tunes by diverse acts such as The Beatles, Billy Joel and Green Day among others. The difference? Morissette's anthemic tunes were mainly about being an angry grrrl with a lot of bad boyfriend baggage.
"I look forward to taking the heart of Jagged Little Pill and expanding its story, fleshing it out into ever deeper layers of emotionality, specificity, humanity, power, physicality, spirit and fabulism," Morissette said in a statement.

Alanis Morissette and her husband are being asked to pay their former babysitter.
The "You Oughta Know" singer, 39, and Mario "Souleye" Treadway have been sued by former nanny Bianca Cambeiro, who alleges, according to court documents filed on Thursday, that the couple never paid her overtime or allowed her to take meal or rest breaks during her regular 12-hour shifts while caring for the couple's son Ever three to four days a week.
The documents state that Cambeiro, who started working for the couple in August 2011 at their Brentwood, Calif., home for $25 an hour, asked Morrissette's accountant in January 2012 why she wasn't being paid overtime, and he said, "We don't do that."

With the teams of 12 in place, coaches Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green faced tough decisions Monday night as The Voice's battle rounds began.
But they had help: Kelly Clarkson and Shelton's wife Miranda Lambert assisted Team Blake; Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and Ne-Yo advised Team Cee Lo; Alanis Morissette and Robin Thicke helped Team Adam; and Jewel and Lionel Richie guided Team Christina.
Levine picked U2's "Beautiful Day" for Chris Cauley and former Mouseketeer Tony Lucca. Both singers were strong in battle. Cee Lo said Lucca "articulated the song a lot clearer." Blake said he'd choose Cauley because his pitch was spot on. But Levine opted for Lucca saying, "Tony, you blow me away."

The blind auditions came to an end Monday night on The Voice as each coach – Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green – finalized his and her team, landing 12 contestants each.
First, though, came the shock of turning around and seeing Cameron Novack (aka Novacaine), who didn't make it on to anyone's team. He sang, (kind of) rapped and even beat-boxed a bit to Alanis Morissette's "You Oughta Know."
"I did not expect you to look that way," Levine said. "How are you not a woman?"
Fortunately, most of the other singers had better luck.
