‘Frozen’ director apologizes for ‘Let It Go’

“Let It Go,” the Oscar-winning song from the animated sensation “Frozen,” is something you could barely escape hearing over the past year.

Now, in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, the film’s director, Jennifer Lee, has apologized for the song being so ubiquitous.

“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,’ ” the filmmaker said about the “Frozen” soundtrack.

“Now they’re like, ‘Yep, we’re still listening to those songs,’ ” Lee added. “I’ve gone from, ‘Thank you’ to,’Sorry!’ ”

A large part of the film’s soundtrack’s popularity is because of Idina Menzel’s inspiring and soaring rendition of the song.

The singer herself expressed a similarly apologetic sentiment earlier this year. Menzel, 43, acknowledged the prevalence of “Let It Go” and sent her best to parents who have the song on repeat in their homes. In an interview on the CBS Sunday Morning show last April, the singer and actress said, “I apologize to everyone out there — to all the parents [whose] children are making them play it ad nauseam.”
