“You Oughta Know” why Alanis Morissette didn’t perform at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony over the weekend.

The singer was scheduled to perform “You’re So Vain” alongside Olivia Rodrigo as a tribute to Carly Simon.

But that didn’t happen.

“There are misinformed rumors about her not performing at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony this past weekend,” Morissette wrote in an Instagram story on Monday.

“First of all, I have to say how much I love Carly Simon and Olivia Rodrigo and Dolly Parton and Janet Jackson and Pat Benatar and Sheryl Crow and Pink and Brandi Carlile and Sara Bareilles and all the wonderful people and artists that were there,” she said. he wrote about the women who would be there.

“I’ve spent decades in an industry filled with mainstream anti-woman sentiment and throughout my career I’ve experienced unkindness and disrespect, restriction, rejection, breach of contract, lack of support, exploitation and psychological violence (and more),” Morissette continued to write. because nothing was going to stop me from connecting with those I cared about and resonated with. I live to serve and connect with people and so I’ve tapped into that more times than I can count over the years. It’s hard not to make an impact in any industry around the world, but to be a Hollywood celebrity it’s because of his lack of respect for the feminine in all of us.”

Morissette wrote in her statement: “Happily, I’m at a point in my life where I don’t need to spend time in an environment that diminishes women,” and “has had so many incredible experiences with production teams. All genders throughout my life.”

“So much, and so much fun,” she wrote. “There is nothing better than a diverse group of people coming together with a mission. I will continue to appear in those environments where the bells are on.”
