says he's sorry for saying Madonna should be shot
for "lip-syncing" on stage — an accusation Madge's rep vehemently denied. "I don't want to escalate it because I like Madonna," he tells Entertainment Weekly
. "She's been to my house for dinner. It was something that was said in the heat of the moment, and probably should not have been said... It was my fault. I instigated the whole thing. But it applies to all those bloody teenage singers." In other words, Ashlee Simpson
should be shot?
