Idina Menzel: John Travolta and I Are "Buddies"

She had a very awkward evening at the 2014 Academy Awards when John Travolta introduced her as “Adele Dazeem,” but now Idina Menzel is ready to reveal her reaction to the now infamous pronunciation.

In the latest issue of Billboard magazine, the “Frozen” beauty opened up about performing "Let It Go" at the Oscars and discussed the "Grease" star's mistake.

"I was very zen, I had all of these visuals set for myself. Meditations,” Miss Menzel explained. “I was going to think about my 4-year-old son, all this stuff to stay focused and stay in the moment and enjoy it and not think of all the crazy celebrities out there.”

She continued, “That threw me for a minute, but then I just got back on track and reminded myself of where I was. [John] was really gracious and sent this gorgeous email, and we're buddies and it's all cool."

When asked about the John's error that’s now made her a household, Idina stated, "Please. I mean, I've only benefited from it."
