Don’t let this be the good advice that you just didn’t take.

Starting Jan. 16, Alanis Morissette will be helping readers deal with their angst via an advice column for The Guardian's Weekend magazine. The Canadian singer-songwriter will be filling the slot left open by actress Molly Ringwald, who wrote her final column for The Guardian in September.

Contributing to The Guardian seems like a natural step for Morissette. Since October, she's been releasing a series of podcasts on her own website that touch on "everything from psychology to art to spirituality to design to health and well-being, to relationships," according to their official description.

Morissette told The Guardian that she’s acted as a “therapist” for her family for nearly her whole life.

“Parents, brothers, even extended family members, that was the role I took on, because I suppose I had this combination of intuition and empathy,” she said.

Plus, let's be honest -- we’ve been using Alanis’ music as therapy since 1995, so why not take it a step further?

If you’ve recently fallen head over feet for someone and don’t know what to do, you can send her a question at ask.alanis@theguardian.com.
