A few weeks after John Travolta butchered her name at the Oscars, Idina Menzel has finally addressed the gaffe in an interview with Billboard.
Menzel said she "was very zen" as she prepared for her performance of "Let It Go," but that Travolta introducing her as Adele Dazeem "threw me for a minute." "But then I just got back on track and reminded myself of where I was, and what a beautiful moment it was," she said.

This week, True Detective fans speculated about how the HBO show would wrap up its first season and how the repeated references to the "Yellow King" would fit in — and a new videomakes a pretty convincing argument. After John Travolta butchered her name at the Oscars,Idina Menzel went on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform her Academy Award-winning song "Let It Go." Lena Dunham and Kate McKinnon teamed up for a series of promos about Dunham's upcoming gig hosting Saturday Night Live, while SNL cast memberSasheer Zamata was featured in the first episode of new web series Black Mad Men.

John Travolta is speaking out about his big Oscars flub. At Sunday's ceremony, the actor incorrectly introduced Idina Menzel as Adele Dazeem before her performance of Frozen's "Let It Go."
Good to know I'm not the only one who needs pizza to make it through a long night at the Oscars.
With Ellen DeGeneres serving up laughs along with slices, disarming the starry crowd with stunts like a pizza delivery for the starving captive audience and a Superstar Selfie that temporarily broke Twitter (and during the taking of which Meryl Streep delightfully blurted, "I've never tweeted before!"), even the Oscars' inevitable dull patches felt less painful than usual.
Catherine Zeta-Jones may not have accompanied her estranged husband Michael Douglas to the Emmy Awards on Sunday, but that's not to say she didn't walk a red carpet over the weekend.
Patsy and Patrick Swayze
Patsy Swayze, the choreographer and dance instructor who was the mother of actorPatrick Swayze, died Monday at her home in Simi Valley, Calif., the Los Angeles Times reports. She was 86.
Heads will roll — and more than a few eyes — in Fox's lavishly entertaining but hopelessly convoluted new supernatural thriller Sleepy Hollow (Monday, 9/8c), which officially kicks off a new season of network premieres. Given how ordinary so many of the networks' new shows are this fall, it seems a bit churlish not to wholeheartedly embrace a series that is anything but ordinary. And yet by the end of an opening hour that gets off to a spectacularly fun start, I wanted nothing more than for it to just shut up with all of the apocalyptic mumbo jumbo.
On the plus side, a star is unquestionably born in Tom Mison, a winning British actor who makes for a dashing and amusing action hero in this bold re-imagining of Washington Irving's iconic Ichabod Crane (from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, which we've heretofore seen Disney-fied and Tim Burton-ized). Here conceived as a studly Revolutionary War hero and spy for General George Washington, this Ichabod is mysteriously resurrected into the 21st century, along with the axe-wielding Headless Horseman who cut him down 250 years ago and is soon lopping off heads in the modern-day Hollow.
