DreamWorks, the makers of the Oscar nominated movie-musical Dreamgirls, has made a public apology to legendary record label Motown; reinterating that the film is ‘work of fiction’. The apology, made this Wednesday, was in response to grumblings by the label that the movie mis-representated their history.
I say Motown, as much as I respect them, need to chill. It’s well-known what goes on in the industry, so trying to convince people otherwise won’t work. Plus the film doesn’t claim to be an exact depiction of how Motown was back then.
