John Travolta has been getting all types of shit since fucking up Idina Menzel‘s name during Sunday night’s Oscars. However, let’s be fair here – he didn’t mess up her name, really. HE CREATED AN ENTIRELY NEW ONE. Adele Dazeem is not anything like Idina Menzel, but he went there, and Xenu bless him for it.
The flub has sprouted tons of jokes online, and a name generator, as well. How would John Travolta have pronounced your name? Mine was Joss Smoith. I LOVE IT! In fact, I think I’ve found myself a new pen name…
In any case, John just doesn’t think all this laughing at his expense is very funny anymore, and he’s had his publicist release a statement on his behalf:
“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!”
I love that the entire purpose of this statement was basically to prove that he does actually know what Idina’s name is and how to spell it. Also, nice pun with the whole ‘Let It Go’/Frozen thing. But I’m still not impressed. Say it five times fast, Travolta!
