Taylor Swift brought Alanis Morissette onstage at her LA gig on Monday night (August 24).

Swift played the third show of her five-night residency at the city’s Staples Center, with Morissette joining the singer for a duet of her 1995 hit ‘You Oughta Know’. Watch footage below.

Swift introduced Morissette by saying: “The person I’m about to bring out defined the music of her decade. She defined the generation of female songwriters. She taught us you could get really, really mad if you wanted to. It’s fair to say that many of the female songwriters would not write the way we do without her music.”

The singer was also joined by Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines for an additional duet and TV presenter Ellen DeGeneres during her catwalk segment of ‘Style’.

Alanis Morissette recently discussed her struggles with eating disorders in a new interview. It followed an announcement that the singer will release a four-disc reissue of her hugely successful third album ‘Jagged Little Pill’.

Speaking in Women’s Health, Morissette described her battle with such disorders as bulimia, comparing the illness to a drug or alcohol addiction.

“The big question for me around eating-disorder recovery is, ‘What is sobriety with food?’” Morissette said.

“We know with alcohol, you just don’t drink it and don’t go to a bar. With heroin, you just don’t go near it. Whereas with food, you have to eat, so how can one go from, in my case, bingeing and purging, starving, overeating, the scale going up and down – how can I go from that to a ‘sober’ approach?”

Meanwhile, Oxford Union, the debating society at Oxford University, have released a mash-up video in a bid to convince Taylor Swift to speak at an upcoming event.
