Alanis Morissette Talks About her Relationship with Food

November 27, 2011

Alanis Morissette took to her blog to write a post titled "My Relationship with Food and Fat," in which the singer hinted at having struggled with an eating disorder.

"Not much upsets me quite like someone making a declarative and derogatory comment about someone's weight when they themselves have never struggled with an eating disorder," Morissette wrote. "I remember being at my most thin one day, feeling like I could barely drag my lethargic body around, only to be met with the most compliments I had ever received."

Morissette then added: "My fraught relationship with food and fat has always been a cloaked invitation into a more profound kindness to myself (one I have so often ignored). Being kind toward my fragility in the face of a monolithic message of perfectionism and intolerance has not been an easy path."

Kara Dioguardi is another musician that recently opened up about her struggle with eating disorders.
