Personal Quote:

I'm not necessarily coming from a religious standpoint, but I guess there is a lot of questioning in my songs. Sometimes people come to my shows and think I'm a Christian artist and they put their hands up in the air, like they do. But first of all I'm a Jewish girl from the valley, and I'm from Los Angeles. It's funny to be misinterpreted.

Trivia:

She has starred with both Fred Savage (in The Wizard (1989)) and Ben Savage (in Big Girls Don't Cry... They Get Even (1992)). See more »
