Back in 1995 – when tracksuits and choker necklaces were cool for the first time – the top list of ironic things, according to Alanis Morissette, were as follows:
– winning the lottery and then dying the next day, oh and also dying in a plane crash
– a no smoking sign on your cigarette break
– meeting the man of your dreams, but then meeting his beautiful wife
– free rides when you’ve already paid
While we agree that points 1-4 are not only ironic, but also pretty gutting, a lot has changed in the past 20 years. Like, death is still a bit of a pain, but who has a ciggy break these days when you can secretly vape under your desk? Uber has made sure that you ain’t ever getting a free ride anywhere and no one meets the man of their dreams in real life anymore.
So she popped into The Late Late Show with James Corden, to make her track a bit more “relevant”.
Like… accepting a Facebook request but then finding out your old school buddy is actually a massive racist. Or swiping left on your future soulmate…
