John Travolta On Butchering Idina Menzel's Name & Ruining Her Oscar Night: "Let It Go!" Read His Full Statement HERE!

| Filed under: John TravoltaOscarsIdina Menzel

john travolta quasi apology idina menzel oscar night let it go frozen

John Travolta finally addressed his outrageous Oscar-night flub, but by doing so he might have dug himself an ever deeper hole!

In case you forgot, he attempted to Idina Menzel on Sunday so she could take the stage and blow us away with her fabulous song from Frozen. Instead Johnny boy called her Adele Dazim and totally ruined everything!

So today he apologized for royally screwing up her intro. Well, kind of.

Like a fireman putting out blazes with a hose full of lighter fluid, the Look Who's Talking Now star confessed:

"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!"

Yikes! John might as well have tagged it #sorrynotsorry. Or, you know, #yrsorrsyorrsmenzel.

Do U think his wickedly underwhelming apology will make matters worse?

    Perez shut the fuck up… #sorrynotsorry
    Why would he beat himself up over a mispronunciation?
    It's not like he said "Fuck this bitch who is about to sing!"

    Get over yourself…this is old news. Idina could give two shits about it by now.

    Besides, half of the people complaining didn't even know who she was before this shit happened so she should be thanking him for making her a big deal.

    As a Scientologist that is "clear" he should have remembered her name. If he wasnt famous he would be sent to rehabilitation porject force for 22 hours a day of slave labor.

    So Travolta disrespects the song now too by degrading the title into a pop psychology cliche' and being arrogant enough to speak for the artist whose name he trashed …on Oscars night to billions. the song "Let It Go" is about the exact opposite of the trite cliche' Travolta tried to degrade it with — let it go is about shining and letting power and magic free…things Trabolta has zero of. He looked so out of place among those sparkly artists.

    Re: Amy – You sound so vicious Amy, like you've been professionally trained to introvert people who speak truth that disagrees with what you want to portray.

    Travolta's slimey shoddy delivery and clueless prominciation was disgraceful. Would you get on a plane with a pilot who can't even think fast enough to correct a flun, like professional actors do so well when they slip? Something was seriously wrong with that dude. Also, if he has dyslexia, post the proof.

  10. 10

    Oh gosh - please get a life and get over it. He messed up someone's name, he didn't commit murder.

    Re: No – Yes, it just shows more and more who he really is! So much phoney coverup. Like his hair is just the tip of the iceberg. Isn't he supposed to be doing some self-help group that makes people super capable? Yikes. He's a poster boy for pasty phony dull. How does that happen????

    So yah! Definitely. The more we see him withiut coverup propping babysitters the more we see him. Simple.

  12. 12

    oh for christ's sake. what's the big friggin' deal? so the dude made a mistake, who hasn't?

  13. Pallywag5 says – reply to this


    That was not an apology. It's a Scientology teaching to never defend, only attack and deny. If John Travolta's debaucle hadn't been filmed and witnessed by a billion people, my guess is soemone of those beliefs might be calling us all liars and trying to find stuff to blackmail us with like the Scientologists did to Placido Domingo Jr.

    I mean sheesh Actors sometimes slip, they catch it apolgize and correct right there. It's not the simple mistake that has the world so grossed out. It's whatever is wrong with that picture looking him.

    yes!! worse!!!

  14. 14

    Congratulations to whoever it was who came up with that line for him. A simple "I'm sorry" is always nice, too.

    There is nothing sadder than an old lonely gay…who screws up reading from the teleprompter ! LOL ! W oW - did he F*ck up ! Yuck !

  16. Be-Atch says – reply to this


    I have heard he likes it up the bum…and little black boys, alledgedlly…Carrie Fisher outed him, as did some other actress….poor old lonely sad gay

  17. amie says – reply to this


    That was him saying sorry and making a funny. Everyone messes up perez stop making it into something bigger than it is.

    Oscar night presenters know MONTHS beforehand who/what category they are introducing. If John cared so little to get one woman's name right, he should be ashamed to call himself an "entertainer". He'll never host in that town again! : ) Thankfully, that means will won't have to look at him either.

    Humble yourself JT! If you would of practiced her name for what 5mins you would have got it right and show respect. Like lines for a movie. OH NOW I GET IT HE DIDNT GET PAID FOR THIS makes sines now.

    According to People Magazine, Idina didn't even notice Travolta's mispronunciation of her name because she was so focused on getting ready for her performance so no, he did not ruin her night.

  21. Rachel says – reply to this


    The man pronounced a name wrong and has since been the butt of a lot of unfunny jokes. I mean, what's he supposed to do? Sky write his apology like Shia? Can we move on please and stop trying to turn these nothing stories into something?

  22. RH says – reply to this


    I love everyone's fake outrage. "John Travolta's a monster! He ruined everything!" What the fuck ever. You're all ridiculous and couldn't give two shits about a mispronounced name. Moving on…

  23. Maeve says – reply to this


    He has dyslexia. He couldn't help it. Stop giving him a hard time.

    The original word mangling and still the best: "Mr Caught Taaaaaaaaar"

    I think she sounds like a screaming banshee, her voice is grating, and I totally can see that she is just a theatre voice, now Pink that was a great vocal

    I still think it was a coded alien message.
