It's not everyday that the Houston Symphony has an attention-starved, bisexual, green-faced, adoptive wicked mom who prefers to fly by broomstick on the Jones Hall stage. These are just some of the characters that have made Idina Menzel a household name just about everywhere. The men love her. The gays want to be her. When it rains, it pours. Menzel won a Tony, three Broadway. We caught up with the busy actress, singer and songwriter when Menzel was in her car right outside the set of Glee.

By Juliet Paylor. It may have taken a rather embarrassing mispronunciation of her name at this year's Oscars, but Idina Menzel has well and truly used the ensuing media storm to step out of the shadows once and for all. Up until recently, the singer-songwriter, who got her big break in Broadway's Rent in , had been best known for her cameo appearances as Rachel Berry's birth mother, Shelby Corcoran, in smash-hit musical TV series Glee.

Ready for her turn in the spotlight: Almost two decades after she first found fame as a Broadway musical star, Idina is finally stepping out of the shadows thanks to her Oscar-winning Disney animation Frozen and THAT embarrassing mispronunciation of her name at this year's Oscars.

I had told him that if he hadn't changed jobs, that I wouldn't have left him but that our relationship would probably become irreparable. Sometimes I feel burned out, but I have to carry on. I think she felt that it was important for me to understand the types of challenges in an interfaith marriage. Your probably thinking of a sect of the Mormons, I'm sure there is one like that. You should be fine as long as you stick to the lines you have laid out. He learned that I didn't pick up on ambiguity and that I took it personally when he didn't show consideration for me during the times that it was possible to.
