Idina Menzel Thinks It's Ridiculous Her Christmas Album is Out Already

Idina Menzel poses for a photo with her new Christmas album Holiday Wishes at a signing held at Barnes & Noble on Tuesday (October 14) in New York City.

The Tony-winning actress’ new album was released that same day and she shared her thoughts with Time on her album being released over two months before the holidays.

“I have very strong feelings. The album comes out October 14. I think that’s ridiculous! I don’t understand,” Idina said. “I’ve been asking the label to tell me why. Apparently that’s when people start buying stuff for Christmas. Okay, that’s cool, but I’m barely into Halloween with my son! I completely understand if people aren’t ready for it until Thanksgiving. That’s when Christmas comes alive for me. My record label will hate me for saying that, but it’s the truth!”

FYI: Idina is wearing a Rebecca Minkoff outfit and Kendra Scott ring.

    Idina deserves all of her success especially of this last year. I love how honest she is–an October holiday album is ridiculous. But hopefully they will plug it in earnest closer to the holidays. To think she recorded this album while doing 8 shows a week on Broadway!
    It’s clear that she went to the Amy Poehler school of divorce. She has never looked better! Her career is rocking and she’s really established herself as a devoted mom–without having to prove it by constantly posting photos of her interactions with her child (hint, hint taye diggs). As sad as I’m sure she is, I really hope she’s taking some solace in the fact that her ex has really demonstrated how much of a douche he is and that she’s better off without him.
    I mean he’s so desperate for attention. His mid-life crisis is the most pathetic I’ve seen in a long time. So she should be glad she dumped that excess baggage. He clearly was holding her down!

    @sohappyforher – exactly. everything you said

    Yeah bitch! This is why I love her. She’s so normal and not afraid to say how she feels. October is WAY too early for Christmas stuff. They may start forcibly shoving Christmas down our throats but that doesn’t mean anyone gives in and buys right now. All of us aren’t even ready for Halloween yet. That’s 100% true and it’s how all of us feel. I love her for pointing this out. Way to go Idina. Keep questioning the logic of these time rushing corporations.

    Nothing like promoting your Holiday CD by complaining about its early release. Great publicity. I love it. Best wishes for great sales. Fantastic voice!
