Barry Manilow Says Back off, Hasselbeck!

To our ears, Barry Manilow’s still making sweet music. Only, this ditty he’s singing isn’t scheduled for regular airplay. The pop icon has canceled an appearance on The View tomorrow ’cause he dislikes conservative yakker Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Too funny!

“I wanted to let you know that I will no longer be on The View tomorrow as scheduled. I had made a request that I be interviewed by Joy, Barbara or Whoopi but not Elisabeth Hasselback. Unfortunately, the show was not willing to accommodate this simple request, so I bowed out,” Barry said in a statement released to E! News today.

“It’s really too bad, because I’ve always been a big supporter of the show, but I cannot compromise my beliefs. The good news is that I will be on a whole slew of other shows promoting the new album, so I hope you can catch me on those.”

Rosie must be peeing her pants right now.
