Sure, Steven Tyler has been living like a rock star life, but this seems…excessive (even for Steven Tyler!)
Famously rumored to have spent more than 20 million on drugs, Tyler wants to set the record straight for everyone…that it’s less (but you know, still a LOT of money).
“Realistically, 5 or 6 [million]. But it doesn’t matter. You also could say I snorted half of Peru, but it doesn’t matter,” he revealed during an interview with Australian show 60 Minutes.
So, what matters? His sobriety, of course!
The Aerosmith singer became addicted to drugs in the late 1970′s and it wasn’t until he sought treatment in 1986 that he turned his life around. A minor bump in the form of a prescription pill addiction and made him reenter treatment in 2009. Since then…he’s been drug free and doing well.
So, where does the money all go now that it isn’t spent on drugs? That’s a LOT of free dough…
Steven Tyler sang the National Anthem at the NFL Playoff Game yesterday, and by most accounts he “butchered it”. I watched it – and I don’t know if he necessarily butchered it. He just sang like he normally sings. I mean what are you expecting when you ask Steven Tyler to sing the National Anthem? I think for his style of singing – this is as good as it gets.
