‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ Controversy
Frank Loesser wrote the song in 1994. The song finally debuted in the 1949 movie, Neptune’s Daughter. Although the lyrics do not mention Christmas or the holidays, it has been a popular Christmas song due to the winter referenced in the lyrics. Countless artists have covered the holiday classic including Idina Menzel, Brett Eldredge, Michael Buble, the cast of Glee, among numerous other artists.
The song has faced harsh criticism that began roughly eleven years ago. People claim that the lyrics depict sexual harassment or even assault. By 2018, numerous radio stations removed the song from rotation.
Kelly Clarkson and John Legend re-created the song with updated lyrics. The lyrics say it’s your body and your choice and even offer to call an Uber.
“It would be fun, and it would be newsworthy. And – yeah – it was both,” he told The Guardian of the song. “The song was supposed to be silly!” he added. “It wasn’t supposed to be preachy at all. I never disparaged the old version. And, by the way, the original writer, or his family, gets paid for my version, too.”
