Steven Tyler is Not a Racist: According to Him…

Steven Tyler says Nicki Minaj is dead wrong … he’s not a racist … and has now issued an Angus T. Jones-style quasi-apology for the controversial comments he made about the new “American Idol” judge. Minaj had publicly unloaded on Tyler … after the Aerosmith singer insinuated Nicki doesn’t appreciate rock music and “would have sent [Bob Dylan] to the cornfield” if he had appeared on the show.

Nicki fired back on Twitter, “That’s a racist comment. You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what?” But yesterday, Tyler finally explained himself on the Canadian talk show, “eTalk,” saying, “I apologize if it was taken wrong, Nicki … but I am the farthest from [being a racist].”

Now wait just a minute here.  Is this really the issue we should be discussing?

So what gives here?
