Back in 1995, singer-songwriter Alanis Morisette let it all hang out in one of the grittiest, angriest breakup songs ever recorded, You Oughta Know. The specific subject of the song – and whether it was even one guy or some kind of composite of breakups – has long been rumored to be Full House’s Uncle Joey, comic actor Dave Coulier.
Then, Alicia has the strange-but-not-true story of an online hoax claiming that TLC’s 1999 smash No Scrubs was also inspired by Dave Coulier.
