American Idol judge Steven Tyler is leaving his seat at the table. The news comes just hours after Jennifer Lopez announced her plans to leave Idol on The Today Show.
With Tyler leaving and Lopez threatening to do the same, the judges table looks mighty bare.
Tyler says the decision was made in order to focus on his band Aerosmith. “The next two years are dedicated to kicking some serious ass,” the singer said in a statement. And he means business, as Aerosmith has a new album and tour all lined up.
So who take over Tyler’s spot? Adam Lambert is rumored as a possible replacement.
Steven Tyler stole the spotlight for a few moments on American Idol last night, announcing that he and Aerosmith will be hitting the tour this summer for the band’s first tour since 2009.
“We’re calling the tour the Global Warming Tour,” Tyler said like only he can. “Because of the fire. Yo tengo el fuego.”
Earlier in the day, Tyler gathered at the Grove in Los Angeles – along with bandmate Joe Perry – and also revealed that the legendary group will release a new album – its first in eight years – some time later this year.

Shannon Magrane made quite the impression on American Idol judges during last night’s season 11 premiere.
Awkwardly for the 15-year old’s father, though, it wasn’t simply due to her singing.
In a clearly contrived set-up, Randy asked Shannon after her athletic interests… which led to a mention that her dad, Joe, pitched in the 1987 World Series… which led to Joe and other family members entering the room… which led to Joe asking Steven Tyler about Boston and the Aerosmith frontman responding:
“Great, beautiful. Hot, humid and happening… just like your daughter!”More >
Steven Tyler is, in fact, engaged to Erin Brady.
The American Idol judge proposed with a ring made by jewelry designer Loree Rodkin, according to new reports, confirming rumors from earlier in the week.
“Having made Steven’s jewelry for so many of the past years it was an honor to be part of his future… with all my love to Steven and Erin,” Rodkin told Us.
Tyler has been a fan of Rodkin’s work for many years.
Steven Tyler and Erin Brady have been together five years.

Steven Tyler is engaged to Erin Brady, according to reports.
TMZ spotted a rock on her finger this weekend and cites sources claiming it is in fact an engagement ring. It is a rather large diamond, for sure.
Tyler, 63, and Brady, 38, were in Maui on Christmas day along with her massive ring. It’s unclear if Tyler proposed before or during the vacation.

The two have been dating since 2006. The American Idol judge and Aerosmith rock legend has been married twice before. Liv Tyler is his daughter.

Remember Steven Slater?
A little over a year after he rose to national prominence by quitting his job as a JetBlue flight attendant – via a meltdown that included screaming at a passenger and sliding down the emergency escape – this Long island resident is free from the constraints of the law.
Slater was sentence to a year of probation after the incident, which included court-mandated mental health appointments. He was also forced to pay JetBlue $10,000 in restitution for the emergency slide.
“It’s great to see that there is an alternate to hard time for cases that, in my mind, don’tMore >
Steven Tyler’s father, Victor Tallarico, has passed away. He was 95.
According to Victor’s obituary, the Aerosmith rocker’s dad was surrounded by family when he died peacefully in Nashua, N.H., on September 10.
Victor was predeceased by his wife of 63 years, Susan Ray (Blancha) Tallarico. He had two children, Steven and Lynda, and seven grandchildren.
An excerpt from his obituary reads:
“Among Victor’s proudest accomplishments were his offspring: Lynda, a retired teacher who resides in southern Vermont, and Steven, who, having been well launched into the music business by Victor, becameMore >
Steven Slater has accomplished an impressive feat: he’s made Angelina Pivarnick sound like Tupac Shakur.
The former Jet Blue flight attendant has somehow landed a contract with a company called Line 2. It specializes in a cell phone app that provides in-flight texting for those on airplanes that have Wi-Fi – and the first campaign features Slater rapping. Yes, rapping.
This is a must-watch… for those with a strong stomach:

My name is Steven Slater…And I’m no longer blue…Now don’t be a hater…Cause you never flew.

(HMG Celebrity News) – Remember ex-JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater, who freaked out and went sliding down an escape ramp, at JFK Airport? At first considered a folk hero, Steven now faces 7 years in prison for charges including reckless endangerment. Steven was in court today in NYC and according to TMZ, will voluntarily admit himself into a mental health program for treatment, if the D.A. plea bargains his criminal case and agrees to a lesser sentence. While Slater claimed an unruly passenger went off on him and hit him on the head with the overhead bin, all the other passengersMore >
[HMG] – When Aerosmith lead singer, Steven Tyler fell off the stage during a concert last August the show was soon canceled. And the feud that grew from it nearly broke up the band. But Steven says they’re back, and badder than ever.
The fall happened at a concert in Sturgis, South Dakota on August 5th. It left 61-year old Steven with head and neck injuries and a broken shoulder. The medications that controlled all that pain soon induced an addiction and a feud soon broke out.
But Steve now says that’s all behind them;
“The band has never been better,” he told the Huff Post. “I realized whenMore >
After a brief tease the other day, Lady Gaga has released the full video for her newest hit, “Alejandro,” and it’s as epic and brazenly self-indulgent as you think.
At this point, did you expect anything less from Lady Gaga?
Filmed by acclaimed photographer Steven Klein, Gaga calls the nine-minute video pure “celebration of [her] love and appreciation for the gay community.”
That might explain the shirtless men with bowl cuts dancing in high heels, plus Gaga stripping for them in a giant orgy, plus the obligatory Catholic imagery.
It’s as if she wants it to be controversial orMore >
It seems like just a few months ago that we were buzzing over Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” music video. We suppose it was. But she’s already got a new hit.
On the singer’s CNN appearance Tuesday night, she told Larry King that the music video for her current single, “Alejandro,” will be premiering very soon.
She explained that the video has a “homoerotic military theme.”
Well, sure, all the good ones do. While it won’t address hermaphrodite rumors the way “Telephone” did, it does contain an important theme for Lady G.
