She has been in five celebrity relationships averaging approximately 3.8 years each.
Howard hammers on about Alanis' hookups with women and tries to box her into easy-for-straight-folks-to-understand stereotypes, like when he asks, "What type of women were you attracted to? But I think Howard deserves to have none of his stupid questions answered: When he calls her hookups with women "your lesbian phase," Alanis giggles and says, "It's funny you call it a phase...it's a self-defining thing." He then asks, "I want to know what brought you to a woman. "I think it's a rite of passage to experiment with your sexuality at some point," she says, and Stern insists, "I'm not experimenting with a dude!Then when she sings if it weren't for me you would never have been successful. I guess that’s why I told my wife I loved her on our second date. But it wasn’t that she wasn’t giving me love, it just seemed to come at different times. I don’t think I noticed this consciously for a while. And after each time, there would be this look she would give me. It wasn’t something I could force, just something that would come about as a result of my giving. And how much I’m sure those messages are bouncing around in other people’s heads as well. Living Disney movies in our minds, and tragedies in our lives. Instead, I cringed through this smarmy "Alanis Morrisette Discusses Her Lesbian Days With Howard Stern" clip on Gawker. And I'll confess this interview made me particularly defensive because I love Alanis. Alanis does a pretty great job of razzing him right back, I've got to say. True, Howard asks very personal, raunchy questions of all his guests.
