Barbra Streisand was among the performers and presenters at Sunday's Grammy Awards.

Stand down, Gleeks. Despite Barbra Streisand’s seemingly dismissive comments last week, the living legend insists she doesn’t have a problem with the hit song and dance show.

On Friday, Streisand responded to the question of whether or not she would ever appear on “Glee” by stating, “Not if I can help it." But by Sunday, Babs was singing a different tune.

“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 explained on her website. “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.

(Note to “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy: ask her already!)

In addition to clearing up the earlier statement, Streisand went on to praise the show that so often references her work.

“I’m so honored that a lead character on ‘Glee’ (Rachel Berry) is so admiring of my work,” Streisand said. “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.’”
