    Is Barbra Streisand really joining Kings Of Leon on the Glee diss train?

    Not so fast.

    At the pre-Grammy MusiCares event Friday night, Streisand was asked if she would ever consider doing an episode of Glee and replied, "Not if I can help it. " Needless to say, Gleeks went apoplectic (especially considering show star and professed Streisand fan  Lea Michele performed a tribute to Streisand that night).

    Now Streisand is doing a quick backpedal clarification...

    "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," Streisand said Sunday in a statement to E! News.

    "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. I'm so honored that a lead character on Glee is so admiring of my work. In my speech at MusiCares, I thanked them 'for exposing young people to music they might otherwise not hear today: Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison and Darren Criss…you're all so gifted.'

    And there you have it.
