Keith Richards has undergone laser eye surgery and is "doing very well," says a spokesperson for the Rolling Stones guitarist. Richards underwent the procedure to correct his vision, which has been deteriorating in recent years.

Richards' surgery may have been done at this time to prepare for a Rolling Stones 50th anniversary tour later this year, which has been heavily rumored but has yet to be confirmed by the band.

“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."
