Alanis Morissette, who pretty much owned angsty girl rock in the ’90s, gets all zen in the new issue of “Runner’s World.”

The 35-year-old singer, who has knocked out two marathons since losing it in “You Oughta Know,” credits running, kale, yoga, soy yogurt and a host of other superboring things for her new laid-back lease on life. “If ever I’m going through something emotional and just go outside for a run,” she says, “you can rest assured that I’ll come back with clarity and empowerment.”

Fair enough. But between talks of detoxing, training, and her “semivegan” diet, Alanis also admits to some more familiar relaxation techniques: “I occasionally indulge in red wine, and it’s fun to have medical marijuana once in [a while],” she tells the mag.


Not to knock your soy, Alanis, but we think this might have a little something to do with your new chill outlook.
