Steven Tyler Says Goodbye to American Idol

American Idol judge and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler decided on Thursday to leave his job as a judge on top-rated television singing contest “American Idol.”

Tyler expressed that his reason for leaving is due to needing to return to focusing on his first love, Aerosmith.

Tyler’s fellow “American Idol” judge, Jennifer Lopez, also is contemplating whether to return to the program that once reigned supreme atop U.S. TV ratings but has seen its audience shrink in recent years.

“I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I’m back,” the band’s lead singer said in a statement.

“I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress ‘American Idol’ before she boils my rabbit,” Tyler added, in a reference to the thriller movie, “Fatal Attraction.” “I got two fists in the air, and I’m kicking the door open with my band.”
