Like they are in Washington, D.C., apologies in Hollywood are a dime a dozen, but true remorse is hard to come by. Which is why it was so pleasing to see Mandy Moore (pictured) genuinely own up to her shortcomings in a new Jane magazine interview, as quoted in this morning’s New York Daily News. We refer to the part where, in reference to her own hit songs, Moore reportedly said, “I feel bad that people wasted their money on such trite, blah pop music.”
Mandy, we salute you. We can only hope that such a frank confession will result in further Hollywood/entertainment industry apologies. For example: Hey, NBC ad people, you need to apologize for putting us loyal Heroes fans through that whole, “Save the Cheerleader, Save the World” nonsense only to replace it with the infinitely less catchy “Are you on the list?” slogan. Also, Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu? You definitely need to say sorry for making me want to crawl into bed and cry after watching each of your films. Your movies are symphonies of pain.
Okay, PopWatchers, your turn. What would you like to see Hollywood apologize for?
