Alanis Morissette Calls Out Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Over 'Anti-Woman Sentiment'

There was no shortage of star power at the 2022 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony this weekend, 

which celebrated an array of era-defining musicians like Duran Duran, Eminem and Dolly Parton.  

One artist who was not in attendance, however, was Alanis Morissette. The singer-songwriter had 

reportedly rehearsed a rendition of Carly Simon’s 1971 classic “You’re So Vain” with Olivia Rodrigo last week. 

But at Saturday’s ceremony, Rodrigo performed the song as a solo in honor of Simon, a 2022 Rock Hall inductee.  

Naturally, media outlets began to speculate as to why Morissette failed to appear at the last minute.  

On Monday, Morissette addressed her reasons for canceling in a strongly worded post to her Instagram Stories.  

Though the seven-time Grammy winner had high praise for Rodrigo and other female artists who were present at the fête,  

she suggested the Rock Hall’s “disrespect for the feminine” prompted her decision to back out.
