Steven Tyler: 'I'm Sorry Nicki But I'm Not A Racist'
Former American Idol judge apologises to Nicki Minaj but denies racism...
And now Tyler has told Canada's eTalk: "I apologise if it was taken wrong, Nicki... But I am the farthest from [being a racist]. I am the last thing on this planet as far as being a racist."
"I don't know where she got that out of me saying I'm not sure how she would've judged Bob Dylan... Maybe I spoke out of turn. But a racist I'm not, Nicki."
Minaj had made the claim via Twitter after seeing Tyler's comments about her.
She wrote: "I understand you really wanted to keep your job, but take that up with the producers. I haven't done anything to you. That's a racist comment. You assume that I wouldn't have liked Bob Dylan??? Why? Black? Rapper? What? Go f**k yourself and worry about yourself, babe."
