John Travolta speaks about the Idina Menzel pronunciation controversy

March 5, 2014 Idina Menzel, John Travolta, Adele

John Travolta had an enormous foot in his mouth at the recently conducted Oscar ceremony. The actor presented Broadway singer Idina Menzel to perform the Oscar winner song ‘Let it Go’ from the animated movie Frozen.

However, instead of saying the correct name Idina Menzel, John said, “the wickedly talented, one and only Adele Nazeem’. The worst part? He didn’t even realize what a glitch he made with his pronunciation. Of course the name flub created a lot of online and social media controversy.

Finally Travolta himself came up and spoke about the issue, he issued a statement which 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!!”

On her part Mendel chose not to speak about the issue and she actually – LET IT GO!!!
