‘Frozen’ Director Apologizes For ‘Let It Go’ Still Being Popular
It’s been 384 days since “Frozen” was officially released in the United States, and since that day, I’d estimate the Internet has seen approximately 43,687 covers, parodies and remixes of “Let It Go,” the film’s most popular musical number.
You’d think after more than a year, the hype around the movie and its soundtrack would have died down, but we’ve been reporting on “Frozen”-themed stories as recently as last week, and with the worst parts of winter still approaching, it doesn’t appear there’s any end in sight.
You don’t have to search too hard to find someone who’s sick of “Frozen,” but the most recent addition to the list might surprise you.
In an interview with Hollywood Reporter, director Jennifer Lee said that over the past year she’s changed her tune when it comes to the movie’s soundtrack.
According to Lee,
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.’ Now they’re like: ‘Yep, we’re still listening to those songs.’ I’ve gone from ‘Thank you’ to ‘Sorry!’
The apology might not make up for the torture some people have had to endure, but it’s nice to know she cares.
