supposed former infatuation junkie
"supposed former infatuation junkie / i sink three-pointers and you wax poetically" - so pure
context: "what the bleepin' fuck?" was probably america's collective reaction to alanis morissette's announcement that her follow-up to jagged little pill would be called - of all things - supposed former infatuation junkie. "supposed former infatuation junkie" is just such a mess of a phrase that it can only be understood after a thorough dissection of each word. let's start from right to left, shall we? the word "junkie" is synonymous with the word "addict" -- a junkie is hopelessly addicted to something. in this case, alanis is addicted to "infatuation", which is defined as foolish attraction or desire. alanis, however, is no ordinary "infatuation junkie" -- she's a former, or used-to-be junkie. and finally, for good measure, alanis threw in the word "supposed" to indicate that she might or might not be a former infatuation junkie. so there you have it. supposed former infatuation junkie. yep. that's alanis.
are you still mad
that i would be good
i was hoping
would not come
heart of the house
jagged little pill | under rug swept | home
