It’s being widely reported that JLo is in talks with the folks at FOX and American Idol as to whether or not she’s staying or leaving (what else does she have to do? People are paying to see Enrique Iglesias–not her as the opening act, forpitysake), but it looks like Steven Tyler is the one we should’ve been watching.
“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,” Tyler said in a statement on Thursday. “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.
I have such an identity with this band. We’ve done a bunch of things. We certainly have been writing. I have a bunch of songs I’ve written for solo and/or Aerosmith,” Tyler said. “What you hear in the press about ‘American Idol’ getting in the way of the band just isn’t true. There’s no validity to it.”
First, let me say “UGH!!” in response to Tyler’s gross junior high “long…hard” double-entendre statement above. Seriously, dude? Gross. Secondly, I don’t care that he’s leaving. Do you?
