Steven Tyler Rips Dr. Drew's Celebrity Rehab

Aerosmith frontman turned American Idol judge Steven Tyler has some strong words about Dr. Drew Pinsky's 'Celebrity Rehab' show on Vh1.

Tyler, who has famously battled his own addictions over the year, recounts in his new autobiography, "Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?," that we was in a Los Angeles area rehab at the same time former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler and Tyler alleges that Adler was "told to fake his drug stupor for the 'Celebrity Rehab,'" according to Reuters.

"They wanted him to act out his own messed-up state when he entered rehab. It was ghoulish and unreal. They gave him 30 grand for the episode, he snorted it all, crashed his car, and he ended up in jail detox," Tyler wrote.

"It didn't seem to me all that ethical using actual f---ed-up people like Steven Adler in a reality show, but who am I to say? Not to mention getting trashed celebrities to mime their own self-destructive nosedives which they then sensationalize on a melo-fing-dramatic reality show, which so traumatizes them they end up in worse shape than ever -- from the drugs they bought with the money from the show."
