Toby Keith recently graced the cover of Forbes Magazine's Celebrity 100 issue. The featured article required Keith to take part in a photo shoot and interview, which the singer had no desire to do. Toby told The Oklahoman that his publicist demanded that he do it, so he reluctantly agreed. Keith said, "First of all, it's like pulling teeth to get me to do photo shoots and I don't mind doing interviews if they're by phone, but I hate to go sit down and have to meet somebody somewhere." But it was the content of this particular interview that really annoyed Toby. The article detailed the singer's several business ventures, including his restaurant chain, his Mezcal line, his partial ownership of the Big Machine Records label, as well being the head of the Show Dog Universal label. Keith said, "I'm uncomfortable even talking about success and money. I'm just a boy from Oklahoma that still drives a pickup truck."
