Alanis Morissette - Versions of Violence (NHL Face-Off Rocks)

Alanis Morissette can be tough in her music. Just consider her megahit "You Oughta Know." Now, imagine her on skates with a big stick.

"I've been a hockey fan since I was fresh out of the womb, to be honest," Morissette, 34, tells, revealing one of her life's first passions. "It would have been hard not to be in my family since we're all hockey fans."

"I played street hockey a lot," the singer says. "Most Canadians learn how to skate when they're 2 years old. I was one of those kids, so I skated a lot on my figure skates and my hockey skates."

Now, she is fusing her two loves, participating in the NHL Face-Off 2008 festivities on Oct. 9, by broadcasting part of her live concert in Montreal.

Morissette, who released her fifth album Flavors of Entanglement earlier this year, performed a new song, "Versions of Violence," which she considers to be an ode to the Dalai Lama.

So why does she love hockey so much? Hint: It's not just the brawn involved.

"I think hockey is like dancing; it's such an art," Morissette says. "At one point it was quintessentially Canadian . . . so I think there's something sweet about that."


(fixed; hopefully)
