John Travolta apologizes to Adele Dazeem (aka Idina Menzel)
John Travolta is sorry for messing up Idina Menzel’s name at the Oscars on Sunday, where he introduced her as “Adele Dazeem.” Also, though, he’s over it.
“I’ve been beating myself up all day,” Travolta said in a statement, according to People. “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.
Indeed, it seems like the “Frozen” star doesn’t hold a grudge — she gave Travolta a hug after her performance of “Let It Go.”
The Internet, on the other hand, has no plans to stop enjoying Travolta’s flub anytime soon. Not only did an Adela Dazeem Twitter account instantly spring into existence, but you can now Travoltify your name (just call me Melissa Thozomas, writer for Marco).
Perhaps best of all is Menzel’s new musical “If/Then,” which announced at Monday’s performance that her role would be played by her understudy, Adele Dazeem, who made her Broadway debut as Moritz in Nert.
