Steven Tyler just announced that he’s done with American Idol. How’s that rug pull?? I totally didn’t see that coming at all! Steven said in a statement, “After some long…hard…thoughts…I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress ‘American Idol’ before she boils my rabbit. I strayed from my first love, AEROSMITH, and I’m back – but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I’ve got two fists in the air and I’m kicking the door open with my band. The next few years are going to be dedicated to kicking some serious ass – the ultimate in auditory takeover…On Nov. 6, we are unleashing our new album, Music from Another Dimension on the Earth, Moon, Mars, and way beyond the stars…IDOL was over-the-top fun, and I loved every minute of it…Now it’s time to bring Rock Back. ERMAHGERD.”
That’s insane!! I wasn’t questioning Randy before, I kind of am now…think they’ll lose the whole judges table??? Steven was the best part of that show. I loved him. I’m sad to see him go, but since I don’t really watch Idol as much…good for him to getting back to his roots!
