Aw, come on, Michael Bolton! Lighten up!
The singer is still singing the bitter blues after Dancing with the Stars judge Bruno Tonioli gave him a "mean-spirited" critique the night he was voted off the dancing competition show.
Michael says he has asked for a public apology after Bruno called his routine "the worst jive in 11 seasons" and said he did it "very, very, very badly."
Although he has yet to receive an apology, Michael says he won't ask twice, adding:
"I don't wish to pressure the show … I don't blame them. Nor do I wish ABC to put any pressure on him. I think it's a personal epiphany [Bruno] may have to have/ I asked for it in one interview and I felt he should express a public apology to me. I think asking once is enough, and I don't want my friends, fans and supporters to ask for it. It is what it is."
The show's producers have defended their judge, saying he was only doing his job and he gave an honest opinion about Michael's dance routine.
Michael says he enjoyed his time on the show and praises the cast and crew saying, "The producers and the people who work for them are phenomenal at making you feel as comfortable as possible," however he does have one thing to say to Bruno:
"Bruno should search his soul for what he is doing on that show."
WAAH! WAAH! No one likes a crybaby, Michael!! Just move on and be thankful you even got the chance to be on the show.
