Bob Dylan's Paintings: Work From His First-Ever Art Exhibit

October 9, 2007 4:32 PM ET

As we told you in the Maroon 5 issue of Rolling Stone, the first-ever exhibit of Bob Dylan's original paintings will open at the Kunstsammlungen art museum in Chemnitz, Germany, on October 28th. Museum director Ingrid Massinger first came across Dylan's paintings in his 1994 book, Drawn Blank, which contains the singer's sketches made between 1989 and 1992. "I was fascinated to learn of Ingrid's interest in my work," Dylan said in a statement. "It gave me the impetus to realize the vision I had for these paintings many years ago. If not for this interest, I don't know if I even would have revisited them." The exhibit runs through February 3rd.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
