Alanis Morissette on inspiring Katy Perry and the 'sisterhood' in modern music

Singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette has opened up about being an influential musician and how women in modern music seem to stick together more now than ever before.

Speaking to ABC News, the 'Ironic' superstar was asked how she felt about the scene in Katy Perry's 3D concert movie 'Part of Me' where she talks about how Morissette's music inspired her to pursue a career as a pop vocalist, and explained that it was fantastic to hear:

"Oh, it’s great. I love her. I have actually had the privilege of hanging out with her a little bit."

She also admitted that she was excited to see fellow Canadian Carly Rae Jepsen, who recently cited Morissette as an idol, enjoying her rise to fame and added that she one day hopes to meet her:

"I always love when Canadians are in the public eye because I feel like we have a sister-brotherhood thing going on, cut from the same cloth of some kind."

"When I was releasing “Jagged Little Pill” in 1995, there wasn’t as much of a sense of sisterhood during that time for me. It had a lot to do with the fact that I was in this hot heat, and there was a lot of competition among… well… I can’t even use the word ‘sisters’ during that time. Right now there’s more of a sisterhood, which I appreciate."
