The new HBO documentary chronicling one of the biggest albums of the '90s is set to hit Australian televisions soon - despite the backlash that has arisen from the film's subject herself.

Singer Alanis Morissette had previously slammed the new doco Jagged - which takes a deep look into the making of her seminal 1995 album Jagged Little Pill - saying the piece does not portray an accurate representation of events.

"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)," said Morissette in a statement released earlier this year.

"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."

The singer continued, "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."

Morissette has gone on to say she no longer endorses the film and will not be attending any events pertinent to its release. The album in question featured super hits such as You Oughta Know, Ironic, Hand In My Pocket and many more, and even spawned a stage musical set to premiere in Aus next year.
