The 30-year-old singer was among some 4,500 people who took the citizenship oath during a ceremony last week at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Morissette isn’t turning her back on Canada — she’s maintaining dual citizenship.
“I will never renounce my Canadian citizenship,” Morissette said in a statement Wednesday. “I consider myself a Canadian-American.
“There was a turning point during the ceremony where I felt connected to this country in a way that I didn’t quite expect,” she said. “America has been really great to me and I have felt welcomed since the day I came here.”
Morissette’s songs include “Ironic” and “You Oughta Know.”
