Alanis can't wait to get on stage

Hillingdon Times: Alanis Morissette said becoming a mum has been a 'complete head-spinner' Alanis Morissette said becoming a mum has been a 'complete head-spinner'

Alanis Morissette has revealed she's looking forward to "wearing something shiny" as she returns to the stage after having her son.

The Ironic singer - who is married to rapper Mario 'MC Souleye' Treadway - gave birth to son Ever in December 2010, and is back on the music scene with new album Havoc And Bright Lights.

She revealed: "It's all very, very exciting. Playing shows, getting ready to release the record. I've been under a rock for a while, being a new mom and wearing sweatpants.

"It'll be nice to get out of the house and wear something shiny again, or maybe even something fitted, to remind myself I have a body."

The Canadian singer said becoming a mum has been a "complete head-spinner", and made her realise that her career will have to take second place to family life.

"It's weird having this split agenda for the first time. Before getting married, I was an artist without a family, but I didn't want to carry on living that life, where the professional fulfilment is sky-high and the personal life is a little void," she said.

"I didn't want to get to 90 and have no family around me and think I had done nothing other than work. In the past few years I very much prioritised personal fulfilment and I'm really glad I did."
