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.

As any Hallmark card can tell you, the holidays are about bringing people together. For some of us, that means reuniting with grown-up children, or welcoming long-lost cousins into our homes. But for musicians, it means something else: seasonal duets, often performed with the oddest of partners.
From reality-show novelty songs to stocking-stuffer EPs, Christmas isn't Christmas until two people who have no business being in the same room have crowded in front of the mic to sing a holiday classic. Why do they do this? You should just as soon ask Black Friday shoppers why they camp out for hours in front of big-box stores. Holiday magic is a compelling thing.

You can't keep a glam girl down.
In a red-carpet appearance in China's Shandong province on Saturday, Catherine Zeta-Jones stepped out at a star-studded event to announce the launch of a new $5 billion film studio there, as well as plans by AMC Entertainment to host an annual Chinese film festival. (AMC was purchased by China's Wanda group in 2012.)
Other A-listers in attendance included Leonardo DiCaprio, John Travolta, Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor.
It was the actress's first public appearance since PEOPLE revealed her separation from her husband of nearly 13 years, actor Michael Douglas, in late August.
