AS THOUGH THERE WERE ANY DOUBT, STEVEN TYLER IS NOW OFFICIALLY AN AMERICAN IDOL JUDGE

Which is a smart move on Fox’s part, because now people who have never watched American Idol in the past — like me! — will tune it at least once, just to sate our curiosity.

Stranger might be that J. Lo is also a new judge on the show. Various celebrity gossip sites claim that Lopez is a massive bitch, which doesn’t shock me at all, and it’s readily apparent that Tyler is no cupcake; hopefully this pairing results in some back-stage cat fights. My money would totally be on Lopez.

Here’s a Tyler quote from the LA Times:

“Tyler said he wanted to be a ‘part of something bigger than himself. I wanna bring some rock to this roller coaster.’”

So I guess Aerosmith isn’t “bigger than himself.”

Does this mean the end of the Boston quintet? Will they just hire a new singer, Velvet Revolver-style? Or will everyone make nice once they realize this is probably good for record, concert ticket, and merch sales? Stay tuned…
