I once saw an episode of MTV Cribs that featured Alanis Morisette hanging out in her Canadian loft, gleefully making a list of things that were ironic to her. The pad had an Asian theme, complete with Buddhas, altars, big temple-style doors and such. She even had a bunch of the walls removed to make it flow like her sweet cover of that Seal song. That pretty much says it all right there.
