Barbra Streisand clears up misconstrued comment on 'Glee'

Image Credit: Gilbert Carrasquillo/FilmMagic.comBarbra Streisand took to her website yesterday to make something crystal clear: She never meant to diss Glee.

On Friday night, the songstress was asked by Entertainment Tonight if she would consider appearing on the Fox show, and replied “Not if I can help it.”

Cue Gleeks with pitchforks.

Yesterday, she wrote up a statement to clarify, saying: “When asked if I would ever appear on Glee, I should have said, ‘You never know.’ It was wrong to say, ‘Not if I can help it.’ What I meant was that I’ve been overwhelmed preparing for my performance on MusiCares, the Grammys, recording a new album, and starting a new movie. So I couldn’t take on any more work, and besides that, I wasn’t asked.”

Even if she HAD meant it, I think the most offending part of this whole thing is that Gwyneth Paltrow is already going in for second helpings and Streisand’s never been asked. Is there no justice?
