John Travolta really can say 'Idina Menzel,' and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • John Travolta really does know how to say Idina Menzel's name, guys! Even though he couldn't say it - or anything resembling her name - at the Oscars on Sunday night. No one really knows what caused Travolta's trip of the tongue, but the speculation is that he was nervous. [E!]
  • Before his life as an Oscar-winning screenwriter, John Ridley was a writer for "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," and he hasn't forgotten his roots. "It was a wonderful beginning," Ridley said backstage, "and honestly when I think about that, it's all the more stunning that I ended up here." [EW]
  • The list of names that weren't included in the 2014 Oscars in memoriam segment is a long one, and it holds standouts like Dennis Farina and Cory Monteith. What do you think: should the Oscars even keep the segment around if it's always going to miss at least one person? [Zap2It]
  • Pharrell Williams' infamous hat has found a happy home with Arby's. The fast food chain purchased the item for $44,100 through Williams' charity auction to benefit his educational non-profit. [AdWeek]
  • Justin Bieber apparently still has eyes only for Selena Gomez. After he spotted photos of her at the Vanity Fair Oscars party on Sunday, he posted the images to Instagram with the caption, "Most elegant princess in the world." [Justin Bieber's Instagram]
