John Travolta laughs at Taylor Swift fiasco at MTV VMA & # 39; s: & # 39; I have a sense of humor there & # 39;
John Travolta is just going to shake it.
The 65-year-old actor started earlier this week about the fiasco in which Taylor Swift was involved in the MTV Video Music Awards in New Jersey, when he apparently tried to hand over a prize to RuPaul & # 39; s Drag Race & # 39; s Jade Jolie in place of the musical artist.
Travolta, a presenter alongside Queen Latifah during the show, told the Dallas-Fort Worth radio station Hot 93.3 he searched & # 39; Swift amid the chaos, because there were & # 39; so many people bombarding the stage & # 39; after her Video of the Year victory for You Need to Calm Down.
It happens: John Travolta, 65, was a good sport when he opened on Thursday about the fiasco in which Taylor Swift was involved in the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this week
& # 39; In the video I'm trying to find her, and you know, I found it as funny as it was interpreted, & # 39; said the experienced actor. & # 39; And it's cool, I didn't care. & # 39;
The New Jersey-born star made it clear that he has thick skin after more than 40 years in the spotlight, referring to his viral snafu at the Academy Awards five years ago when he named Idina Menzel named Adele Dazeem.
& # 39; If I shave my head, it's headlines, & # 39; said the Grease star. & # 39; If I say something wrong, it's headlines, and I know that about me. & # 39;
Travolta joked & # 39; it would be great & # 39; if he had handed over the prize to Jade Jolie, and that he & # 39; would have had to go all the way & # 39 ;.

He said the snafu helped Jolie's reputation: & Everyone knows that she is the Taylor Swift Doppelgänger, so I think that was the highest compliment that he could pay her. & # 39;
