Kings Of Leon star Nathan Followill is still reeling from the fuss surrounding the band's decision not to let GLEE bosses use its songs in an upcoming episode.
The Sex On Fire hitmakers have assured fans they were approached about a possible Glee deal, despite show producers insisting the whole thing was a big misunderstanding.
Followill's bandmate and cousin Jared Followill told the media the group had rejected the request, saying, "We turn stuff down constantly."
And now the drummer admits he was shocked the decision became such big news this summer (10).
Nathan tells Britain's Mojo magazine, "Turning down Glee was like stepping on a kitten. We had no idea there was going to be that response.
"As artists... you have the right to turn down stuff and at the time it just didn't seem to be the right fit.
"No offence to anybody. Hopefully a show will come out about hot models in bikinis and then we'll let 'em use every one of our songs."
