LOS ANGELES, June 10 (UPI) -- Canadian singer Alanis Morissette says she is no longer an "angry white female" -- as dubbed by Rolling Stone magazine -- but an "everything white female."

"I think it would be 'Everything White Female' -- just you know really all these emotions, anger, sadness, confusion, joy, humor, all of it," Morissette told an interviewer with ABC's "20/20." The interview came as the singer was preparing to release an acoustic version of her 1995 hit album "Jagged Little Pill."

The songstress said her dream had always been to sing on stage. "I always envisioned myself touring the planet, playing songs, playing live. I had always seen images of that in my head, but the rest was, you know, an interesting fun surprise," she said.

However, she said stardom did not come without challenges. "It was overwhelming because I'd always been an observer of life. And right around 1995, I went from being the observer to being the observed. And that was really jarring for me."

The interview was scheduled to air Friday night at 10 p.m. EDT.
