John Travolta Responds to Idina Menzel Name Flub at the Oscars

Posted Tuesday March 4, 2014 8:11 PM GMT

His embarrassing butchering of Idina Menzel's name at the Oscars made headlines and inspired tons of jokes, but John Travolta is taking the jabs well.

While introducing the "Let It Go" singer at the Academy Awards on Sunday, the "Grease" star inexplicably called her Adele Dazeem.

Soon, an Adele Dazeem parody Twitter account popped up, along with a John Travolta Name Generator at Slate.

Taking it in stride, John joked in a statement, "I've been beating myself up all day. Then I thought...What would Idina Menzel say? She'd say, 'Let it go, let it go!' Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy 'Frozen' took home two Oscars Sunday night!"
