Steven Tyler Announces He’s Leaving American Idol

Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler has announced that he’s leaving his post as a judge for FOX’s American Idol.

No word, yet, on who will sit in a chair and tell even the most terrible of singers they were terrific next year.

He just released this statement via the network: “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.”
