Alanis Morissette has been hearing about how her hit '90s song "Ironic" doesn't have a hint of irony in it, and she's taken the criticism to heart. By writing an updated version that remains completely irony-free.
The singer stopped by "The Late Late Show" on Monday night to sing an updated version of the song with host James Corden. It nods to the original with updated references — instead of rain on your wedding day, it's swiping left on your soulmate — and adds other knowing anecdotes about the trials of modern life.
In case you were wondering, irony is defined by Merriam-Webster as "the use of words that mean the opposite of what you really think especially in order to be funny." But even if Alanis is just keeping the joke going, you can't help nodding along to the digs at air travel and Apple's constant iPhone updates. May as well laugh about it.
