Gotye "clarifies Glee cover criticism"

Gotye has claimed that comments he apparently made about Glee's cover of his smash hit 'Somebody I Used To Know' were misrepresented.

The singer was recently quoted in a newspaper as saying that the cover was "ultra dry" and "dinky" sounding.

However, the Hollywood Reporter says that Gotye addressed these claims at an intimate show in Hollywood on Monday (April 23). In relation to his "dinky" comment, Gotye said he was talking about the "xylophone hook in my song - it's kind of dinky not just in the cover version but the original song."

In fact, Gotye is said to have even praised the cover, saying:

"I thought it was really clever to transpose the song to two guys...It was a great idea."
