John Travolta Speaks Out About His Idina Menzel Oscars Flub

John Travolta has broken his silence about the now infamous flub during the Oscars telecast where he seemed to introduce Idina Menzel as "Adele Dazeem."

"I've been beating myself up," the actor says in a statement.

"Then I thought... What would Idina Menzel say? She'd say, 'Let it go, let it go!'," he says referring to the Broadway star's hit song from Disney's 'Frozen'.

"Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy Frozen took home two Oscars Sunday night!"

The family friendly film won Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song on Sunday night.

Travolta's flub at the 86th Academy Awards in which he welcomed Menzel with "Please welcome the wickedly talented, one and only Adele Dazeem" also gave birth to a Travolta-fier Name Generator, which butchers any name typed in.

Menzel, who played Maureen Johnson in 'Rent' and Elphaba in 'Wicked', doesn't seem to be bothered by the flub and has not commented on it.
