John Travolta has responded to his unfortunate mispronunciation of Idina Menzel’s name while introducing her performance of Frozen‘s Let It Go at the Oscars on Sunday.
‘Please welcome the wickedly talented, one and only Adele Dazeem,’ Travolta had said while introducing Menzel … and that has made him a global laughing stock in the media for the past two days.
But the actor, in a written statement to the media, said, ‘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!’ he added.
