Steven Tyler is going back to his day job. After two seasons as a judge on American Idol, the Aerosmith frontman says he won’t be returning to the reality show and will, instead, be focusing once again on his band. “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,” the rocker said in a statement today. “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.” Tyler’s announcement comes amid continued talk that Jennifer Lopez will not be returning to the popular Fox show.
“I am thinking that it’s time for me to go,” she recently said about tackling a third season. (People)
