In a statement released to CNN via his publicist, Travolta issued an apology but not an explanation.
"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!"
I see what he did there. "Let It Go" is the name of the song Idina recorded for "Frozen", and performed on Sunday night. Well played, John, well played.
An insider with the Academy Awards said Travolta had no trouble with her name during rehearsals. "No one knows what happened. Maybe nerves just got the best of him." [For the record, it's pronounced "Uh-deen-ah Men-zelle"]
KATY PERRY REVEALS WHY SHE AVOIDED MILEY'S TONGUE: Remember when MILEY CYRUS performed in L.A. last month and tried to make out with KATY PERRY but Katy walked off before Miley could bury her tongue down her throat?
Well, Katy was on an Australian TV show yesterday morning and revealed why she didn't go full-make out with Miley. ""I just walked up to her to give her a friendly girly kiss, as us girls do. And then she tried to move her head and go deeper, and I pulled away. God knows where that tongue has been."
Katy also deftly avoided the subject of JOHN MAYER. While taking questions from fans, a little girl asked her if she had a boyfriend and Katy totally dodged it. First she said all of her fans are her boyfriends, then she pointed to a koala bear sitting next to her with its trainer and said the bear was her boyfriend. So it sounds like the answer is no.

MORE BIEBER JAIL VIDEO COMING: All the footage of JUSTIN BIEBER’S time in the Miami jail will be released, including his urine test. Yes, that means we’re going to see Biebz little Bieb too -- but censored.
"Rolling Stone" is reporting attorneys for several media outlets including the AP, "The Miami Herald," and CBS television stations got the right to the clips of Bieber's urine test under Florida's public records law, which allows most evidence in a criminal case to be turned over to the media after it's been given to the defense team. There's no release date for the footage.
COULD BE TRUE, COULD BE CRAP - SELENA GOMEZ HAMMERED AT POST-OSCAR PARTY?: Was SELENA GOMEZ drunk and stumbling around at the "Vanity Fair" post-Oscar party Sunday night?
According to a source for the not-always-reliable Radaronline she was. "Selena was drinking constantly throughout the entire party . . . She was having a grand old time and towards the tail end she was stumbling in her heels and almost toppled right over. She wasn't slurring too bad, but was definitely in the happy-sleepy stage."
Well, luckily for us she documented her big night on Instagram, posting a lovey-dovey photo of herself with VANESSA HUDGENS, which she captioned, "My only, official party buddy for life."
And a Miley-esque tongue shot with a surprised looking ZOOEY DESCHANEL. So was she fubar? We Report, We Decide!
