John Travolta doesn’t have a great track record when it comes to awards shows.
He knows it, too, which is why while presenting the Video of the Year award with Queen Latifah at Monday night’s MTV Video Music Awards Travolta said, “I shouldn’t do this because I’ll just mispronounce s**t and f**k it up,” before handing the envelope to her.
For those who don’t remember, the superstar famously mispronounced Tony Award-winning actress/singer Idina Menzel on the Oscars stage as “Adele Dazeem” in 2014.
And while he didn’t mispronounce Taylor Swift’s name when she won, the internet still thinks he flubbed it by attempting to give the award to a member of her entourage instead of her.
“John Travolta mistook Jade Jolie for Taylor Swift when handing over the award for ‘Video of the Year,’” a tweet from Pop Crave said.
We’d like to think he was joking around but … we will just leave it at that.
