Bob Dylan doesn't understand all the fuss about his tour last month in China.

In a brief letter posted Friday on his website, www.bobdylan.com, the singer-songwriter disputed reports that he had originally been denied permission to perform in the country or that government officials had censored his playlist.

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd had written that Dylan "sang his censored set, took his pile of Communist cash and left."

Dylan responded: "If there were any songs, verses or lines censored," Dylan responded, "nobody ever told me about it."
