Well this isn't ironic at all!

Alanis Morissette has a brand new gig, and it doesn't have anything to do with singing. She's going to be an advice columnist! The Canadian artist will be taking over Molly Ringwald's gig at The Guardian starting with the January 16 edition.

The paper announced the news this morning, and while the gig may come as a surprise to some, it seems that Morissette has actually been priming herself to be the next Ask Amy for some time now. According to The Guardian, she's started recording relationship podcasts on her own website, and she has been offering up advice to her family since childhood. Plus, you know, if you make it through a breakup with Dave Coulier in one piece, you've definitely got a secret to life that the rest of us don't.

We figured that Alanis would need a little bit of material to pull from for her first column, so we decided to come up with a few questions we have that the singer could shed some wisdom on. To the advice!
