Steven Tyler is leaving the judges table! The rocker and Fox both confirm the news… In a statement, Tyler said it’s time to get back to rock and roll:
“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.”
Jennifer Lopez has been hinting in interview that she too isn’t sure what her plans are for the hit show. Lopez has expressed an interest in spending more time on her music and film careers.
UPDATE: YEP, SHE’s LEAVIN.
