Idina Menzel Quotes / Quotations

I love my husband very much. I knew it was real true love because I felt like I could be myself around that person. Your true, true innermost authentic self, the stuff you don't let anyone else see, if you can be that way with that person, I think that that's real love.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I have the potential to be very strong and powerful, sometimes angry, sometimes passionate. I also can be shy and withhold that because I am afraid. I don't want to freak anybody out with my passion... So I struggle with that all the time.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


Along with enough sleep and taking proper supplements, I steam - in my steam shower. I find it's very healing, more than just your typical 'tea and honey.'
Quotation of Idina Menzel


My younger sister had kids before I did, and managed to earn a master's degree while raising them as a single parent. Now she's a brilliant second-grade teacher. I'm in awe of her ability to juggle everything and still be a great mother.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I will never leave the theater. My heart is there, and I love being on stage 8 times a week.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


Believe me, I don't take that lightly. To have struck gold twice with 'Rent' and 'Wicked.' I know it's rare and I'm very lucky to have that kind of phenomenon in my life. They're not just great shows, they're shows that resonate with young audiences.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I know I'm known for singing some of those high notes, but that's really not what giving someone goosebumps is all about. It's about really trying to find what makes you unique.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


Everybody thinks it's going to be so glamorous, so cool, you're on 'Glee,' you know, a hit show or whatever.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


You get to relive your childhood when you have a baby and you see these toys and these books you read when you were little - the innocence that you are able to maintain because you have to find that again in order to connect with your child keeps you in a special state of mind.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


The most successful people are so original.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


Being a role model is about being true to myself.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


It's been a dream of mine to run my own summer camp. I went to one as a kid, and I put on productions, and got lots of confidence.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


The truth is I love musical theater and always have.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I've been singing since I was born. It's something I do everywhere I go. In the shower, walking down the street. I don't need any impetus to do it. I just sing.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


Things happen for a reason, and in their own time.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I think I hid my singing talent from a lot of my friends at school because I didn't want to alienate anyone. If everyone was singing along in the car to a Madonna song, I didn't join in because when we're younger we're afraid of sticking out or showing off, when in fact we should own those things that make us really unique.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I sing in many different colors and, hopefully, they add up to a great performance that, after you leave the theater, makes you feel like I've really shared something of myself.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I don't think I ever really knew the right words to 'Hava Nagilah,' which isn't great for a Jewish singer.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


'Frozen' definitely isn't about a man, but about the relationship between two sisters. At different times in our lives we find ourselves either more connected to or disconnected from the people in our family, and I think audiences will really be able to relate to that.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


That experience with 'Rent' went by so fast. I was younger. I didn't even really know what opening night was. And now I'm thinking back on the times I went to Broadway as a kid and the excitement I felt... And I'm realizing that I'm actually a part of that, so I'm learning to take it in, 'cause so often I shrug it away.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I find that, maybe because I'm also a singer, I hear music in characters all the time, even if they don't sing. I hear what affects me in my heart.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


For singers, I believe we can sing in a lot of keys. I know I have this big range, but the point is to find a key that emotionally connects people.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


With young people, I always say, 'You're not doing anyone any favours by withholding your power.' As women, we do that a lot because we are afraid of being misunderstood or perceived as too strong. But the older I'm getting, the more I realise you have to let that go.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I always like to sing barefoot, but when I first started doing these dates with the symphonies, I of course thought I should clean up my act, being a Jewish girl from Long Island with a little bit of a trucker mouth. So I wore a gown and some high heels.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


My husband and I grew up with parents who supported our passion, and we're grateful to them for that. It really helps you find your identity when you're younger. It helps you become a really well-rounded person, the more you can show from different perspectives. The arts show us empathy, which is so important.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


There are lots of things I'm acquainting myself with now to be a more well-rounded person.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I tend to have a pattern of playing misunderstood characters.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


There has to be a balance between power and vulnerability. That's something I feel I have in my own life, something I struggle with and - on a good day - like about myself.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I always like to sing barefoot.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I will never leave the theater. My heart is there and I love being on stage eight times a week.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


The intensity of being in front of all these incredible musicians and tremendous conductors in these elaborate halls can be overwhelming.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I set the bar high because I don't want to do just any other show just to keep working. I want to do something special that means something to people and speaks to them. Those kinds of opportunities don't come along all the time!
Quotation of Idina Menzel


As a mom, I don't have much time for beauty.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


Growing up I studied classically and did lots of shows in school.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I would love to play 'Funny Girl' or 'Evita,' but I idolize the women who have played those parts. I don't know if there needs to be another version of those shows.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


It's hard to absorb and to allow all that attention and accolades for 'Rent' because the rest of the country doesn't know who we are. Once I walk out of the door of 'Rent,' and I'm on the subway, it doesn't matter. It's an exaggerated sense of fame.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I'm constantly trying to work on the person that I am and work on my shortcomings, and I guess I want people to know that it's ok to be a work in progress, as long as you keep trying to figure it out. But that search and that discovery is what makes life kind of rich, and it's what makes life rich... period.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I'm more comfortable revealing myself than hiding behind metaphors. I respond to artists who reveal something of themselves.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


After 'Rent,' I tried to make a record, and it didn't work out, and it was the Broadway community that welcomed me back. It's where I feel the most understood, most at home.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I'd been a wedding singer through college, but after a few years of doing my best renditions of jazz standards to clinking glasses and the sound of forks on salad, I thought, 'Oh God, if this is all I do, I'll never be able to live with myself.'
Quotation of Idina Menzel


For me, 'Rent' was all about coming out of myself, finding out who I was, learning the power I could have as a performer.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I would like to get another job in London or tour there. I miss my friends.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I think as women, the smarter and more powerful we are, the more it can be threatening and alienating to other people, more than with men. That's something we need to support each other with.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I'm not great at multi-tasking, so when I do one thing... I like to do it 100%.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


We are never doing anyone any favors by withholding our gifts from the world. It's scary to be fierce, but you can't compromise that for fear of losing those around you.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I'm a mom - I'm lucky if I get to shower in the morning. Luckily, nail polish stays on my toes. I've been so bad on the upkeep, though.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


They're always so serious, the orchestras, you know? It's always a fun contrast of that song and the genre of music. And me.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


As an artist, you have to express yourself. I make no excuses for my versatility. I grew up singing classical arias, but I love rock n' roll and jazz standards.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


Performing live on stage is such a community, whether it's my musicians or a cast of a show that I'm in. And then when you're in the studio or on set, it's a much more solitary experience. Both can serve me at different times in my life. And when I go back and forth from one to the other, it helps me appreciate all of them much better.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


A lot of my fans are young and hip and enjoy my pop album and know the lyrics to those songs as well, which is a real compliment to me.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


As I get older, I realize all I've done is sing and act and hone those skills.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I definitely use my music to kind of alleviate my stress and get me through specific moments in time where I'm just being really tough on myself.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I pretty much have no life outside of the theatre. I go home every night, and I put the TV on, and I veg out and order food.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I'd love to open a camp focusing on the arts accessible to kids from all income brackets.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I'm trying to focus on original material. That is what I've had my luck with.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


Nerves are good. They keep you alive.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


Who am I, if I'm not this singer with big high notes? I identify with my voice. But I'm more than just the acrobatics.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I've met so many of my idols, but the one person that has eluded me is Bono. But because he's done 'Spider-Man,' I keep thinking maybe, through a Broadway connection, somehow our paths will eventually merge.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


Everything's always about being homogenized and following in a group. The people who stand out always have the most problems.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I just enjoy being onstage and relating to the audience.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I started singing weddings and bar mitzvahs at 15, lying about my age. It was a great discipline.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I would love to work with Matt Damon.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I'm a decent tennis player. Good backhand.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


It's the face and the body and the thing that we hide inside that can keep us from the world, but my voice is my voice.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


The cool thing is that, unlike film, the theatre roles for women get better and better as you get older.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I feel like I was born to do this... I started working professionally as soon as I could, doing weddings and things like that in high school, while everyone else was having keg parties. I just felt destined to do it and really committed and driven; it was something that just felt right all my life.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I always use my husband's cocoa butter stuff. He has amazing skin!
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I don't quite know how to put it into words, but I feel for the audience that I have; I know them.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I like to originate new roles and characters for musical theater.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I was once an extra in a Bruce Springsteen video where they did a live performance video at Tramps. I forget the name of the song.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


I'm smart enough to know to work with smart people.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


My story is so boring: Long Island Jewish parents take their daughters to Broadway.
Quotation of Idina Menzel


“You’re singing your heart out and people are eating a salad.”
Quotation of Idina Menzel


“I haven’t been on stage singing that song since back in the day, so when we shot it, it was like muscle memory. As soon as we were on that stage listening to that music, it brought back everything.”
Quotation of Idina Menzel


“Be yourself. I know that sounds cliche, but we all have seriously quirky things about us that may make us feel like an outsider or different, but those are the things to really celebrate. They’re what make us unique.”
Quotation of Idina Menzel


“I've been singing since I was born. It’s something I do everywhere I go. In the shower, walking down the street. I don’t need any impetus to do it. I just sing.”
Quotation of Idina Menzel


“It’s okay to to be who you are, and it’s okay to be figuring it out.”
Quotation of Idina Menzel


“I've never had more respect for my wife. Motherhood suits her. I’m in a constant place of amazement and respect because every day my son is doing something new and exciting, and every day Idina continues to impress me.”
Quotation of Idina Menzel


“Heaven! She’s an amazing, amazing singer…I really miss her because we had such great chemistry on stage and I think that’s very hard to replicate in that show.”
Quotation of Idina Menzel


“I try to be very autobiographical in my writing. I find that I get the best response to my music when I’ve been specific about my own life. If I try to skirt around issues and get too poetic, it gets too abstract and people can’t relate. I try to be truthful about my life. I don’t feel that I’m necessarily some incredibly profound songwriter, but I do have a voice that can be powerful and can make people feel something. I am not trying to impress people with esoteric language and ideas, I want to relate to them and their humanity and speak to someplace inside them. I struggle with my own spirituality in my life. I question my own beliefs and that comes across lyrically. I also sing about my personality flaws such as being an unopinionated person or a waiverer.”
Quotation of Idina Menzel


“It has always been the strangest experience. Our lives were all transformed in so many wonderful ways, but Jonathon wasn't around for any of it. That always grounded me and gave me a sense of perspective. Whenever I’m too caught up in myself or in something superficial, I remind myself that it’s because of Jonathan Larson that I am where I am today.”
