Alanis Morissette will no longer only sing about “the good advice you just didn’t take” — she’ll dole it out in a weekly column.

The Canadian singer will write for the Guardian Weekend magazine, taking over for actress Molly Ringwald.

“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 told the Guardian about her new role.

Morissette already hosts a podcast about relationships and well-being on her website.

Canadian rocker Alanis Morissette (l.) will pen a weekly advice column for Guardian Weekend magazine, taking over for actress Molly Ringwald.

Known as a guiding force for 90s heartbreak, the alternative artist famously dissed ex-boyfriend Dave Couiler in her 1995 breakout track, “You Oughta Know”.

The 41-year-old has since moved on and is now married to rapper Mario Treadway, with whom she had a child in 2010.

The column’s name has yet to be announced, but it will start on Jan. 16.
