Aerosmith's Steven Tyler Loved And Hated American Idol

(popmusiclife) A few weeks ago, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler announced his departure from American Idol following two seasons on the reality series. Back in the saddle full-time with the Boston band, Tyler now admits that Aerosmith's troubles were the principal reason he signed up with Idol in 2010.

"It was something to do while the storm blew by, to be honest," he tells Rolling Stone, calling the show "not my cup of tea." Regarding his two-season stint, for which he was reportedly paid $10 million a season, he now says, "I loved it and hated it. It was a great job, I sat next to J. Lo and I made a ton of money. It was a moment in life and it became larger than life."

Of criticisms that he and Jennifer Lopez, who is also exiting the show, weren't hard enough on most of the contestants, he explains, "The show's about kids and what you do to nurture their talent. They wanted me to take the piss out of the kids and I don't have that in me. That's not what I'm about. That's more about that other guy. Not me" more on this story
