  • Quotes

    • Sheena: Even if your job is a professional singer, we still dork out at home.

    • Sheena: I would make tea for Joni Mitchell or clean her car, anything to be in the studio and watch her work.

    • Sheena: When my kids are in college, maybe I'll drag my fishnets and high heels out.

    • Sheena: Disco is just pop music you can dance to.

    • Sheena: Being a mother had never crossed my mind. It was just not on the radar.

    • Sheena: After enough therapy and enough looking at your life, you realize that if it ain't making you happy, you need to find what's genuinely going to make you happy.

    • Sheena: All of my songs have a real place in my heart, some of them I produced or wrote.

    • Sheena: I have never claimed to be Miss Hip and I never tried to appeal to an avant-garde audience with a green streak in my hair, a bag over my head and songs about living couches. Some entertainers lose their way because they're always trying to make a statement with their music or trying to be cool enough to be in with the Rolling Stones crowd. Well, that was never me. So sue me, I'm a pop singer. People bounce along in their cars to my songs and that's good enough for me.
