I didn’t watch Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2015 with Ryan Seacrest, so I missed Idina Menzels’ performance of the ubiquitous “Let It Go.”
Rumor has it she botched the final high note.
(Haters on Twitter made sure that everyone knew.)
So Idina went on Twitter and defended herself, saying she is ‘more than one note.’
I can understand wanting to stand up to the backlash, but laughing at the sour note might be more effective. Audiences love when people in the public eye can be self-deprecating.
Plus, why give nameless, faceless trolls the satisfaction of seeing you rattled?
Let it go, Idina.

What’s that below, you ask?
On the final day of my trip to Italy, we took a tram to a point high overhead Lake Como…then hiked up a steep incline for another 30 minutes to a lighthouse overlook.
In retrospect, perhaps not the best day to wear flip flops.
Como is as picturesque as you might imagine. It’s not lined with museums or historical points of interest like some of the cities that we visited this week. But if you want to enjoy the sun, the water, a round of golf or tennis — simply relax —
It is perfection.
And then there is the George Clooney factor. Tragically, I was only in Como for a few hours, so I wasn’t lucky enough to see the city’s other major attraction.
Darn. I’m gonna need to go back.
