Frozen director Jennifer Lee is apologizing to parents the world over for "Let It Go," the song Princess Elsa sings that has brainwashed every child on earth.
For some reason this tune in particular has struck a chord with children who are downright obsessed with it, which means their parents have had to listen to it on a loop for about a year now.
Jennifer understands this might have been a wee bit frustrating, and made a very tongue-in-cheek apology via the Hollywood Reporter:
“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,’” she says. “I’ve gone from, ‘Thank you,’ to, ‘Sorry!’”
Frozen is officially the highest-grossing animated film of all time, earning $1.27 billion across the globe.
Adela Dazeem Idina Menzel has sympathy for every person who sounds like crap belting it out, because she has trouble with it too.
“It’s really hard. I can’t wake up in the morning and just sing it, you know,” Idina explains. “I guess my advice is everyone that likes to sing it should sing it loud and proud and karaoke it out, sing it in the shower, sing it in the car and don’t worry about hitting the high notes. I’m the only one who has to worry if people are gonna criticize me.”
You’re welcome, parents!
