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.
Recent photos have surfaced of Steven Tyler taking a dip at the beach in Maui and they ain’t pretty!
The American Idol judge was extremely active during his vacation, surfing, scuba-diving and paddle-boarding and while he is in fairly good shape for a 63-year-old rocker, it appears he has developed a serious case of Moobs (man-boobs).
You’ve gotta give the man credit though. He continued to parade his bod around the island, opting to go shirtless for the day.
Steven is currently on vacation with his 38-year-old girlfriend, Erin Brady and fellow Aerosmith bandmates.
It seems like the judges from American Idol or in a competition of their own. It’s to see who can rake in the biggest paycheck.
Jennifer Lopez is currently in negotiations to bring home a 20 million dollar paycheck to join the cast for another season. Her fellow judge Steven Tyler wants to make sure he is getting a piece of the pie too.
“J.Lo’s management is close to brokering her a huge deal to come back to the panel for at least one more season, and but the side effect is that it means her follow judges also want more money,” a source told the NY Post.
Steven Tyler has a two-year deal worth $10 million, but his management has asked for more money. “They argue he was just as sensational and as popular on the panel as Jennifer. But, on the other side, show bosses argue he’s tied into a deal and has to stick to it. However, it’s hoped they can come to a compromise to keep Steven happy, because the producers love him,” the source told the paper.
Jennifer and Tyler were added to the panel when Simon Cowell left the hit show. Randy Jackson still remains as the only original judge.
American Idol will return to Fox for another season in January.
