Dave Coulier: 'You Oughta Know' Is Not About Me Published: June 5, 2014

Dave Coulier: He's best known as "Full House's" Uncle Joey ... or the subject of Alanis Morissette's bitter break-up song, "You Oughta Know." But Coulier insists the latter title does not actually belong on his résumé, according to

After the song came out, he tells BuzzFeed in a new interview, he asked Alanis what he should say to reporters asking if it was about him.

"And she said, 'Well, you know it could be a bunch of people. But you can say whatever you want,'" he explains. "So one time, I was doing a red carpet somewhere and [the press] just wore me down and everybody wanted to know so I said, 'Yeah, all right, I’m the guy. There, I said it.' So then it became a snowball effect of, 'OH! So you are the guy!'"
