Steven Tyler Quits ‘American Idol’
Steven Tyler is leaving “American Idol” after a two-season run as judge, Fox announced today (July 12).
“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, who judged seasons 10 and 11 of the reality show, said in a statement. “I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I’m back. … The next few years are going to be dedicated to kicking some serious ass.”
