theatre challenge:1/10 performers
“We have this strength inside of us and yet we are taught to always sort of keep it down. If we’re too big or too angry or too bold or too beautiful or too talented, it can scare people. It might scare other women, it might scare men, whatever it is. I sort of found in my life that I’ve taken a step back and made myself smaller in order to try to fit in. And that hasn’t worked. And we have to learn to kind of embrace what makes us unique, and embrace our strength and then if people don’t like it, fuck it.”
"For me, it’s nice that I’m not belting at the top of my lungs the whole time [in If/Then]. There’s a lot of intimate, personality-driven, sweet singing, and that’s the kind I actually love the most, as close to how we speak as possible. I do get to do the crazy high notes, of course. But that’s also a part of me. I’m full spectrum. A vulnerable side and a side that wants to kick ass.” [x][x]

SHE IS PERFECTION
Idina didn’t have a breakdown in a bathroom nor was she almost replaced by Demi Lovato at the Oscars because she was “forced” to rehearse so much.
So I just remembered that I took these stalker photos at the stage door last night. Ahem.
