All Sheryl Crow wants to do is to clarify her comments about Taylor Swift's masters controversy.
The "If It Makes You Happy" singer took to Twitter Thursday to address her remarks on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" the day prior.
"To those who thought I was downplaying @taylorswift13’s masters changing hands, I chose the wrong word. I should have said I don’t know what the situation is instead of the word stink which sounds extremely negative," Crow tweeted. "I have total respect for Taylor & always wish the best for her."
In an accompanying video, Crow said her words were "totally taken out of context. To be honest, I don't generally weigh in about other celebrities, because I don't keep up with celebrity news. So when I said, I didn't know what the stink was about, I meant I didn't know what the situation was about. I totally support Taylor."
"For all you guys out there that think that stink was a negative word, it was totally (the) wrong word choice, so moving on," she said in the clip's conclusion.
In a follow-up tweet, Crow shared the "WWHL" clip with her full answer.
"If you listen to the whole clip, I explain that I live with my head in a big hole, and don’t know the details... Don’t go for the clickbait," she wrote. "And stop pitting women against each other."

Wednesday, a caller requested Crow's thoughts about Swift publicly slamming music executive Scooter Braun for purchasing her masters.
"I live with my head in a big hole. I stay out of that world," answered Crow, who signed with Big Machine in February. "But I will say one thing about masters is that, you know, I signed with a record label 30 years ago and within five years, then it became owned by Interscope and then Interscope got bought by Universal. That's just the way the business goes. It's totally not unusual for your masters to change hands, like, 9,000 times.
"So, I don't know what the big stink was," she continued. "So, I'm kind of out of the loop, so I don't really know."
In a lengthy Tumblr post at the end of June, Swift called the deal her "worst case scenario," accusing Braun of subjecting her to "incessant, manipulative bullying" for years and "controlling a woman who didn't want to be associated" with him.
"Some fun facts about today’s news: I learned about Scooter Braun’s purchase of my masters as it was announced to the world," Swift wrote. "All I could think about was the incessant, manipulative bullying I’ve received at his hands for years."
The ordeal turned into a messy back-and-forth, with Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta writing in a blog post on the label's website that it was "time to set some things straight," claiming Swift had prior knowledge of the deal and didn't "learn about (the sale) as it was announced to the world," as she wrote in her post.
Swift has since announced plans to re-record her first five albums – "Taylor Swift," "Fearless," "Speak Now," "Red" and "1989" – as soon as next year.
"I just think that artists deserve to own their own work," she said on "Good Morning America." "I just feel very passionately about that.”
