​Alanis Morissette reveals her PTSD to Oprah and goes blond

Alanis Morissette is undergoing a rebirth of sorts.

The 40-year-old vocalist has traded her signature long, brunette locks for a brand-new blond ‘do.

She uploaded a photo of the transformation to Instagram and added the caption, “New hair. Girl needed to have a little fun :) ps—blondes are, in fact, treated differently. This is one of the many effects of work addiction recovery :) #spontaneity #easybreezy #makeupforlosttime #healing.”

Alanis sat down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday (Sept. 14), just before swapping hairstyles, and revealed that she has been experiencing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder as a result of her past fame.

She tells Oprah, “The traumatized person, in this case, me, gets traumatized by the thing I thought would be the balm. I thought that everything would be helped and soothed and healed by fame.”

The Canadian megastar became a music icon in the ‘90s after the huge success of her third album, Jagged Little Pill, which has sold nearly 15 million copies worldwide.

The “You Oughta Know” singer is currently touring across North America with her “Intimate and Acoustic” show, which stops in Windsor, Ontario on Sept. 26.
