Billy Bob to Canada -- My Words Were Mashed

Billy Bob Thornton still refuses to acknowledge how big of a jerk-wad he was during that infamous radio interview the other day -- the one where he got all pissy because nobody takes him as a serious musician -- but now he's backing off one of his stupid statements...

Originally, BBT said playing for Canadian audiences was like "mashed potatoes without the gravy" -- but yesterday he said he meant to diss the interviewer and not our neighbors to the North.

Nobody was buying his pre-show mea culpa though -- the audience reportedly booed the crap out of him and his wannabe band during a gig in Toronto.
