John Travolta Speaks on Idina Menzel Oscars Flub: 'I Thought, Let It Go!'

Originally posted 03/04/2014 05:45PM

It looks like both John Travolta and Idina Menzel are going to let it go.

In the days since Travolta first stepped in front of a microphone at Sunday's Oscars and mangled the Frozen star's name in front of 43 million people, the artist once known as Adele Dazeem has become an Internet phenomenon.

Now, Travolta is speaking about the gaffe for the first time.

"I've been beating myself up all day," the Pulp Fiction star said in a statement released Tuesday. "Then I thought, what would Idina Menzel say? She'd say, let it go, let it go!"

The two-time Oscar nominee added, "Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy Frozen took home two Oscars Sunday night!"

There no were hard feelings on Menzel's end: According to a source, the Tony winner wasn't bothered by her newfound moniker – or the online uproar it sparked. In fact, the source said, "She thought it was funny."

Menzel was too focused on her Oscars performance to realize what had happened during her introduction.

According to E!, the Frozen star gave Travolta a hug after her performance was over. Later in the ceremony, Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres clearly – and accurately – announced the performer's name. Twice.
