Alanis Honored With Silicon CD Award

By now, most music fans are well aware that Alanis Morissette's 1995 album, "Jagged Little Pill," has sold millions and millions of copies worldwide. It's also been downloaded quite a few times as well, and for that she was awarded a Silicon CD Award by CD Database on Sunday night.

Morissette was presented with the award before performing to a sold-out crowd at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheater in Los Angeles.

Artists are certified silicon if they appear on the CD Database Digital Top 10, a chart which ranks the most frequently played albums online, for at least thirty days. Other artists who have received the Silicon Award include Korn and Britney Spears.

Her popularity on the Internet ensured, Morissette, who finished up a tour with Tori Amos earlier this week, will soon be appearing on the silver screen, playing the role of God in Kevin Smith's upcoming film, "Dogma," slated to hit theaters on November 12 (see "Morissette Records

Song For 'Dogma,' Talks About Being God").
