Tyler issued the following statement likening his stint on the show to the ill fated affair in the thriller Fatal Attraction:
“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.”
So in this case AI would be the sexy, but totally unstable free spirit of Glenn Close, and Tyler misses the good natured comfort of his chosen wife, read Aerosmith = the predictability of Anne Archer.
He goes on to warn the world of a pending Aerosmith invasion, ”The next few years are going to be dedicated to kicking some serious ass – the ultimate in auditory takeover…”
Though this loss is clearly a huge blow to the AI franchise, judging from the solid pop culture, but seriously dated analogy to the 1987 film, maybe Tyler isn’t necessarily the best fit for a show that’s solely focused on finding the next newest best thing?
Just saying… if you don’t want those ratings to keep slipping…
What’s Miley Cyrus doing these days besides Pilates?
But seriously, we will miss Steven, and his hair, and wish him continued success as a frontman for the legendary band.
There appears to be no hard feelings from FOX, who has nothing but praises to sing about the rock star.
