Alanis can't wait to get on stage
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."
