John Travolta & Adele Dazeem…Uh, Idina Menzel Hug It Out Backstage After He Botched Her Name At The Oscars! Looks Like She Let It Go!

| Filed under: John TravoltaOscarsIdina Menzel


What's in a name anyway? An Idina Menzel by any other name would still sound as sweet as her performance of Let It Go did on Oscar Sunday!

By now we all know how John Travolta Don Gibraltar mispronounced Idina's name as Adele Dazeem, and that earlier today, John released a statement apologizing for the unfortunate flub.

But it seems like Idina has no hard feelings over her new nomenclature.

In fact, according to a Oscar insider, Idina actually gave John a hug backstage after her performance:

"She laughed it off. She thought it was so funny. She was like, 'What are you going to do?'…The Oscars were a dream come true for Idina. She wasn't going to let anything get in the way of that."

And she didn't! Sunday provided all our ear holes with the best rendition of this year's Best Song!

Additionally, another source dished on how John pronounced her name perfectly at the rehearsal on Saturday:

"He knew how to say her name. No one knows what happened. Maybe nerves just got the best of him."

Well, don't worry John. Water under the bridge, and if there happens to be an aspiring singer by the actual name of Adele Dazeem you probably just made her career.

    Re: Catty
    She is famous now that you know who she is?
    Her talent has made her famous on Broadway for several years.
    I have not managed to get to New York for a show yet, and even I know who she is.

    Jeez and John is supposed to be an actor and he can't even get through one sentence without making a fuck up. That was just plain rude

  5. 5

    although idina is a great broadway talent no one in Hollywood or the world really knew who she was
    Now they do
    Good for her
    and BTW JT is a total self absorbed holier than though typical entitled Hollywood ASS

    Agreed - no idea who she was before this, probably not long after. Everyone needs to grow up and find something actually important to talk about - Travolta's a great actor and makes mistakes like the rest of the human race. What a shallow place we live in…

    Can this story die already? It was funny, but the joke's gone on long enough. And I agree with other commenters - this was the best thing that could've happened to Idina. I've been a huge fan of hers since Wicked first came out, but I know a lot of people haven't heard of her. I'm glad she's making the most out of it, but let's move on, shall we?

    I like his new hair … leave him alone now !

    Maybe it is wrong of me to say this, but her singing was not that…good - this time!
