Idina Menzel’s name has been on the lips of theatre fans for decades, but on Oscar night it had John Travolta a little bit tongue-tied.

In the upcoming issue of Billboard, the Tony-winning performer revealed that she wasn’t too upset about the Grease star’s infamous flub.

“That threw me for a minute, but then I just got back on track and reminded myself of where I was,”; the stage star told Billboard. “He was really gracious and sent this gorgeous email, and we’re buddies and it’s all cool.”;

Menzel, tagged by the mag as “the (not so) new it girl,”; also revealed that she initially tried out for the Disney musical Tangled, but was passed over. Things panned out, though. A recording from that audition helped land Menzel a spot doing readings for Frozen.

The new issue arrives on newsstands on March 24.
