Ice Cube is setting the record straight ... saying he was not taking a huge shot at Paul Walker when he griped about losing to him at the MTV Movie Awards -- and claims his words were misinterpreted.
Cube raised eyebrows when, according to USA Today, he said ... "We was robbed" in the Best Onscreen Duo category. He and Kevin Hart's "Ride Along" lost to Paul Walker and Vin Diesel's "Fast & Furious 6."
He added, "We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated, for us not to win was crazy."
Sounds like Cube was getting some heat ... because he's now saying, "I wasn't really mad we didn't win. So I would never diss the actors who won. Not even Paul Walker."
Ice Cube also tweeted, "Ice Cube is not a sore loser. I was born losing. This winning s*** is what I gotta get use to."
Sources close to the actor/rapper tell us he had a joking tone during the USA Today interview ... and was just busting on award shows since he doesn't take them seriously.
We feel you on that, Cube.

Joey Fatone has arrived to New York ... where he's rumored to reunite with *NSYNC at the MTV VMAs this weekend ... but when we asked him about it, he seemed to be LYING like a rug.
Don't get us wrong ... he totally denied being in NYC for the alleged performance. But c'mon Joey ...
Now we're no Columbo ... but we think we know when someone's playing games with our heart (wrong band, but you get the idea).
So, we gotta ask ...

OK, she didn't use her name -- but it was obvious at the MTV Movie Awards last night, Reese Witherspoon HATES everything Kim Kardashian stands for -- from the sex tape to the reality show.
As Reese accepted the "Generation Award," she told the crowd, "I just wanna say to all the girls out there, it's cool to be bad, I get it ... but it's also possible to make it in Hollywood without a reality show."
She added, "When I came up in this business, if you made a sex tape, you were embarrassed and you hid it under your bed and if you took naked pictures of yourself on your cell phone, you hide your face."
Was that a shot at Blake Lively?

He felt her up ... she felt him down -- and it all happened live on MTV.
Moments after Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis walked out to present the first award of the night at the MTV Movie Awards ... JT copped a feel of Mila's breasts.
In the spirit of, "You touch mine, I'll touch yours" ... Mila then put her hand in Justin's crotch ... and the two stood awkwardly for a couple of seconds, while millions of jealous people sat and stared.
Mila eventually read the line, "And the winner for Best Male Performance is ..."
JT quipped, "I think we just found that out."
