LOS ANGELES, CA - FEBRUARY 13:  Singer/actress Barbra Streisand performs onstage during The 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards held at Staples Center on February 13, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

She says "it was wrong" of her to make an off the cuff comment about the hit Fox show.

Barbra Streisand is singing a new tune about Glee.

At a Grammy's MusiCares tribute event in her honor Friday, she was asked whether she would ever consider a role on the smash Fox show. "Not if I can help it," she sniped to reporters.
 
Now, on her Web site, she admits she shouldn't have used such a harsh phrase.
 
"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,' she writes.

She goes on to say that she has 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."
