Earlier this month, a petition made its rounds when the #GiveElsaAGirlfriend hashtag took over the Internet. And, not surprisingly, the voice behind the animated queen supports the movement! Frozen star Idina Menzel shared her thoughts on the petition, designed to give her character in the Disney animated series a same-sex romance, at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards.

She told ET on the red carpet, "I think it's great that she's stirring it up. Disney's just gotta contend with that. I'll let them figure that out." The actress says if the change does happen, she'll embrace it no matter what.

There's no word on when Frozen 2 will be released, so we'll see if Disney plans to break their tradition even more (the original film's plot focused on sisterly love instead of a romantic one).
