Every celebrity has a dirty little secret in their past. Kristen Bell
hopes you'll never see, or rather hear, hers. As many kids do, she recorded tapes of herself singing. Most parents save those for posterity, but when the child gets famous, that can be incriminating evidence.
"This is going to get weird," Bell admitted. "I remember watching The Little Mermaid
and so many others, but those were definitely my two favorites, and deciding I've got to get me singing some of these songs on audio tape and feeling like that was so necessary."
If Bell could go back and talk to her younger self, she'd advise her not to commit those performances to tape. "I didn't know what I wanted to do with them but there are somewhere tapes that exist of me with my tiny boom box when I was probably 10 or 11 next to the television singing along into the recorder and I just felt like I should have those on file in case I ever needed them."
If you want to hear the lost Kristen Bell Disney tapes, petition Mr. and Mrs. Bell to search through their home archives. "I hope they never surface. I hope my mother has misplaced them forever but I definitely did that. Oh no, I mean, your parents can do some damage."
