In an effort to clear the air regarding his decision to pull out of performing on The View this week, OK! spoke directly to platinum-selling artist Barry Manilow.

"I feel absolutely awful for any fans who were expecting to see me perform," Barry, whose latest album, The Greatest Songs of the Seventies, is released Tuesday, continues. "They mean the world to me."
