Steven Tyler Confirms 'American Idol' Exit

Steven Tyler will be leaving American Idol after two seasons as a judge on the hit singing competition.

“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,” Steven said in a statement (via THR). “I strayed from my first love, AEROSMITH, and I’m back–but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I 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,” he continued. “Idol was over the top fun, and I loved every minute of it…Now it’s time to bring Rock Back. ERMAHGERD.”

Earlier in the day, Jennifer Lopez said that it is looking likely that she will be leaving the show as well.
