Steven Tyler is getting along better with his Aerosmith bandmembers since he split with his girlfriend Erin Brady. His bandmates, (including Joe Perry, above) accused Erin of being a troublemaker and getting Steven back into drugs, while HER friends insist she kept him OFF drugs. Either way, for some reason Steven’s bandmates never warmed up to Erin and they’re happier when she’s not around. Of course, now Steven is on the prowl and no one is safe.
Steven Tyler REALLY didn’t like photos taken of him on the beach in Hawaii. He went so far as to ask a senator there to sponsor legislation making it a civil violation if people take unwanted photos or videos of others without permission. The Aerosmith singer owns a million dollar home in Maui and hates seeing unflattering pics of himself splashed all over magazines. Senate members approved the “Steven Tyler bill” to protect celebrities, and now it goes to the House for voting, where clearer heads are expected to prevail.
American Idol is doing everything they can to drive up the sagging ratings and former judge Steven Tyler was a good sport to dress up in drag. He livened up the auditions in Oklahoma City be pretending to be a contestant named Pepper. It didn’t take long for the judges to see through the disguise, but we couldn’t help but notice he bore a striking resemblance to transgendered Alexis Arquette. Only Alexis is younger and has better makeup. They do have similar lips.
It’s clear that Steven Tyler was NOT thrilled when enlarged photos of his twisted and gnarly toes circulated after he was photographed on the beach in Hawaii a few weeks ago. That must be why he is committing the fashion faux pas of wearing socks with sandals in LA. Above, he’s leaving the Pink Taco in Hollywood. Maybe sandals are the only shoes he CAN wear with his foot problem.

We used to get a kick out of Nicki Minaj’s imaginative fashion sense and bold style. But it seems the more we get to know her, the less we like her. Her gangster-mouth tirade against Mariah Carey was uncalled for and to her credit, Mariah never stooped to Nicki’s level of vulgarity. Now she’s publicly embarrassed Steven Tyler by calling him a “racist” simply because he questioned her ability as a judge on American Idol. He openly apologized, but shouldn’t have, because she isn’t worthy of a response. Nicki is simply displaying her lack of education and upbringing – another candidate for charm school. (Above Nicki is in Sydney launching her perfume “Pink Friday.”

The possibility of a split between Steven Tyler and his fiancée Erin Brady has Aerosmith band mates and certain members of Steven’s family thrilled beyond words. Steven, 64, and Erin, 38, have been together since 2006, and the other musicians in Aerosmith feel she’s a negative influence on Steven (she got him back into drugs awhile back) and she has taken control of his life. The fact that Steven is gearing up for the band’s Global Warming tour indicates that Erin is somehow not included because the band doesn’t like having her around. Steven denies that they are actually “broken up” and he still may have feelings for her OR he might be trying to let her down easy.
Not many photographs make us laugh out loud – but we did when we saw these! The highly observant Stephen Saban at The WOW Report pointed out a resemblance that we never noticed. Janice Dickinson and Steven Tyler look like they were both suddenly struck by an unpleasant thought – not the SAME thought, of course…
American Idol judge Steven Tyler maintains his rockstar look by shopping in women’s stores! The Aerosmith singer and his fiance Erin Brady shop together, but Steven likes his privacy. He has his people call ahead to upscale women’s stores and ask if Steven and Erin can have private time to shop in the store alone for HOURS. Sometimes they’re still in a boutique at midnight, trying on and piling clothes on the counter. Steven loves women’s scarves, fancy shirts, extravagant jackets, jewelry – just about everything. He always spends a lot of money on himself and Erin, so the stores are more than happy to give him private shopping time.
No Wonder Paula Abdul has had a little smirk on her face lately. It looks like her new CBS series “Live to Dance” will be direct competition for her alma mater “American Idol” on Wednesdays and Tuesdays starting in January. It will be interesting to see what kind of audience the new highly publicized judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler will attract to the Fox show which has been losing viewers. Meanwhile, Paula’s dance show upped the ante by offering the winner a $500,000 jackpot.
Steven Tyler’s band Aerosmith has been in turmoil since he announced he planned to be a judge on American Idol. The rest of the band knows that the Idol gig would mean Steven won’t be available to perform as often. That means they ALL earn less money. Last year the band was ready to dump Steven and get another lead singer because he only seemed interested in his solo career and didn’t care about the band. Plus they suspected he was abusing substances and behaving erratically. The guys patched things up THEN, but American Idol could be disaster for the group, which has been together for 40 years!
