Idina Menzel: John Travolta’s Flub ‘Threw Me for a Minute’


Looks like John Travolta isn’t the only who “let it go!”

After the actor butchered Idina Menzel‘s name — he called her “Adele Dazeem” — when he introduced her performance of the Frozen hit at the Oscars earlier this month, she has finally spoken out on the viral moment.

“That threw me for a minute, but then I just got back on track and reminded myself of where I was,” Idina tells Billboard, and adds that afterward, “He was really gracious and sent this gorgeous email, and we’re buddies and it’s all cool.”

Plus, now the 42-year-old Broadway star is a household name … her real name, that is. “Please. I mean, I’ve only benefited from it,” she also tells the mag.
