We thought everyone was a fan of She & Him, but it seems like Zooey Deschanel has a little critic in the house who isn’t into her mom’s group. During her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Deschanel said that her daughter, Elsie Otter, just doesn’t view her as a legit singer.

Career-wise, Deschanel holds many hats. Aside from her music career, she’s an actress best known for movies like Almost Famous and Elf, and of course, New Girl. Plus she’s mom to Elsie, two, and Charlie Wolf, who’s just under a year old. And in an April 9th interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Deschanel discussed how she’s going to be in the Beauty and the Beast live show at the Hollywood Bowl (!).


However, it sounds like Elsie toned the criticism down when she found out she hurt her mom’s feelings. “Okay, mommy. You can sing,” she ultimately said.

The Beauty and the Beast live show will be at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday, May 25th and Saturday, May 26th, and costars Taye Diggs, Rebel Wilson, Kelsey Grammer, and Jane Krakowski. You can purchase tickets here.
