All was quiet on the Travolta front in the few days following the mishap, but he's FINALLY spoken out about the incident. He even (kind of) made up for it by dropping a Frozen joke in his response.
So, to what do we owe the moment that inspired a thousand memes? Was there some sort of teleprompter glitch? Did he have an earpiece in that got hit with a tornado of static right when it was time to name-drop?
Nope, turns out it was just a good old-fashioned brain fart. "I've been beating myself up all day," he said in a statement to E! News. "Then I thought...What would Idina Menzel say? She'd say, 'Let it go, let it go!'"
Oh John-- you big joker, you! "Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy Frozen took home two Oscars Sunday night!" he continued. You mean WICKEDLY talented, right? Same difference.
Fortunately, Idina has a good sense of humor and reportedly laughed about it backstage and even gave John a hug after the whole thing. Well, to his credit, he did create A LOT of extra buzz around her performance.
