There will be 10 sessions in total, so we can know what 20 artists feel. This time the selected ones are Alanis Morissette and Olivia Rodrigo, two women who built musical careers singing about their strong emotions.

They are both dressed in black and the meeting is held in San Francisco, although later RS will do a photo session in charge of Yana Yatsuk.

Although they are almost 30 years apart, the two started working very young in the entertainment industry. Olivia in the series of Disney+ High School Musical: The Musical, and Alanis in You Can’t Do That on Television; they were both pre-teens.
The young star confesses: «I was in the car with my parents listening to Jagged Little Pill. I remember hearing the song “Perfect” and it was like “Oh my god”. After a few days I said to my music teacher “Can you write songs like that?” He looked at music and composition in a totally different way ».
On his creative process to compose, Alanis Morissette note that it is something intimate And then when I share it publicly, it’s no longer mine. It’s still my story, and I am very intrigued to hear the interpretations that people give it, because sometimes it coincides directly with what my experience was«. To which he adds: «Many people have told me, just as you did, “Wow, that’s very brave,” and I wonder what’s so brave about it, because it doesn’t feel like that to me (laughs). It just feels like a mandatory experience because if I don’t, if I don’t express myself like that, I would get sick very quickly..
