'Glee's' Justin Bieber bandwagon blows a tire while Babs Streisand fine tunes her 'Glee' snub

By Lisa de Moraes

If "Glee" was hoping to capitalize on Justin Bieber's big Grammy wins with its Bieber-centric episode two nights later...well, that didn't work out so well. The Biebs went zero for two on Sunday night, losing Best New Artist to Esperanza Spalding, while Lady Gaga snagged the trophy for Best Pop Vocal Album.

Despite Bieb's shutout at the Grammys, Tuesday's "Glee" will be all things Biever. In the episode, the MicKinley High glee club guys start a Justin Bieber tribute band, in the mistaken belief it will help them out of their post-Valentine's Day slump, because chicks dig The Biebs.

Yes, another hinky "Glee" storyline.

Meanwhile, Barbra Streisand has clarified her nicking of "Glee" leading up to Sunday's Grammycast.

At a Grammy's MusiCares event in her honor Friday, Babs got asked by the press whether she would consider guesting on the Fox high school musical.

"Not if I can help it," she responded.

They reported.

On her Web site, Babs has clarified that by "Not if I can help it," she meant, "You never know."

"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," she wrote.

She went on to say she's "honored" that Lea Michele's character on the show is a huge fan, and noted that in her speech at MusiCares, she had thanked "Glee" "for exposing young people to music they might otherwise not hear today."

Music like Justin Bieber tunes.
