Idina Menzel let it go very quickly after John Travolta embarrassingly flubbed her name at the Oscars earlier this month.

The Frozen actress-singer smolders on the latest cover of Billboard and opens up about the infamous "Adele Dazeem" screwup.

"He was really gracious and sent this gorgeous email, and we're buddies and it's all cool," the 42-year-old told the magazine.

A source revealed exclusively to E! News that the iconic actor sent the Broadway star "a gorgeous bouquet of flowers to her dressing room" a few weeks ago. The large floral arrangement was delivered to her new musical, If/Then, at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York.

"Please. I mean, I've only benefited from it," Menzel added about her wildly popular alternative name.

The 60-year-old thesp seriously butchered Menzel's moniker causing a slew of observers, including celebs, to take to Twitter to express their opinions while watching the March 2 broadcast.

And in the days following the flub, it seemed as if Travolta was never going to live it down, thanks to sites such as Slate, which created a widget that mocked the actor's mispronunciation so you too could "Travoltify" your name.

"I've been beating myself up all day," the Grease star said in a statement to E! News shortly after the mishap. "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!"
