Alanis Morissette attacks ex-boyfriend Ryan Reynolds on her new album.

The Canadian singer has revealed various tracks on her upcoming LP 'Flavors of Entanglement' were inspired by her then-disintegrating relationship with the 'Smokin' Aces' actor.

She said: "This album was like a life raft. I wanted my own personal story to unfold as it was happening."

One lyric from track 'Straightjacket' is: "I don't know who you are, talking to me with such f***ing disrespect."

While lines from 'Underneath' include: "Look at us break our bonds in this kitchen/ Look at us rallying our defences/ Look at us waging war in our bedroom."

Alanis and Ryan dated between 2004 and 2007, and were engaged. Ryan is now set to marry 'The Other Boleyn Girl' actress Scarlett Johansson.

Although she is still hurt by the split, the 'Ironic' singer believes the experience has made her a better artist.

She added to Britain's The Guardian newspaper: "That's what I keep coming back to. What you're writing is who you are, what you really want to be doing. That's all that matters."
