Frozen Director Apologizes For "Let It Go," and We Forgive Her
There's no denying that 2014 was the year of Frozen. Or, more accurately, it was the year of "Let It Go." Whether it was Idina Menzel's original masterpiece or a humorous parody, we couldn't go a day without hearing some form of the film's most popular musical number. And while parents loved the song on its first (and second and 10th) listen, after a while they started pressing skip whenever it came on their iTunes. Even the film's director Jennifer Lee understands our need to "let go" of the Oscar-winning tune. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Lee shared her sympathy for the parents who've heard nothing but Frozen for the last 12 months.
"A year ago, I'd meet people who, when they found out who I was, they'd say, 'Oh, we love the songs! We sing them all the time,'" Lee tells The Hollywood Reporter. "Now they're like, 'Yep, we're still listening to those songs.' I've gone from, 'Thank you,' to, 'Sorry!'"
We think we forgive Lee for creating the biggest earworm of the year. Can you?
