Steven Tyler has hit the road this summer with Aerosmith, does he regret leaving American Idol? In a new interview, he gets personal, explaining his love hate relationship with the most popular TV show.

Tyler an Aries says, “[It’s] not my cup of tea,” said the 64-year-old Aerosmith frontman. “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.”

Naturally,  Steven Tyler’s motivation was the big fat paycheck and gave him a well needed break from Aerosmith. In 2009, the band was fighting and he needed a distraction. He says, “It was something to do while the storm blew by, to be honest.” .

What about his American Idol judging style? Tyler says, “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,” he said. “That’s more about that other guy. Not me.”

Astrologically speaking, Steven Tyler who’s an Aries, definitely has a few challenges ahead of him in 2013. Now that he’s officially engaged, Tyler will have to decide if he really wants to get married. Also, Astrochicks predicts he may face a few health challenges, nothing too serious but definitely will need a vacation from touring. Stay tuned.
