    Default Alanis Morissette opens up about hitting 'rock bottom'

    Photo by: John Medina / WireImageAlanis Morissette says she's naturally optimistic but battled hard times over the last few years when she hit "rock bottom."

    "I took a break over the past two and half years. I was tending to my personal life," says the singer, who called off her engagement to longtime boyfriend Ryan Reynolds in 2007.

    During that time, she says she hit "rock bottom" due to "a personal unraveling of significant relationships in my life." (Morissette did not comment about Reynolds's recent engagement to Scarlett Johansson.)

    But the singer, 33, worked through the low period by writing songs for her upcoming album, Flavors of Entanglement, due June 10, and discovering more outlets for her emotions. She says that "everything from pounding pillows to sharing with intimate friends," helped her through the hard time. "The record chronicles the rock bottom finally being hit."

    Still, she's hopeful about true love she says. "Oh yeah. My nature is always hope filled. It's more about values matching now. That's the foundation." Though she admits she is, "dating someone," she says she'd rather not reveal who it is yet.

    What the singer will reveal is that she's planning to tour North America this fall but first she wants to catch one of the summer's most anticipated movies: Sex and the City. "I will definitely be going to see that movie," enthused Morissette, who once had a guest role on the HBO series. "I'm the girl that would torture a few of my guy friends and bring them."

    I like Alanis, I do. But she seems to hit rock bottom an awful lot. I mean, listen to her songs!

    I think at least some of the angst is manufactured but I can believe that she had a difficult time with a broken engagement. That cannot be fun.

    Yeah, especially because they had been "engaged" since 2005. Is Scarlet a man-stealer? If so, she got a real loser.

    Maybe she can channel some of that rage and disappointment into something listenable instead of thanking fucking india all the time.

    Maybe she is one of those musicians who occasionally dives to rock bottom for her music. Some love to be miserable. Either way, breaking off an engagement sucks and I am glad to hear she is taking care of herself. *Looking forward to the new album!*

    I thought he dumped her?

    this would be a lot more interesting if she let us know more specifically WTF she's talking about.

    Naturally optimistic? Um ok... I love Alanis, but she is about as angst as a chick can get.

    Looks like she's been hitting the bon bons too.

    I'm not even artist but I do paint and while I'm happy my works suck big time. I understand her that way.

    Also I love being miserable. I always wait something bad to happen if everything is ok.
