Looks like everyone is abandoning the sinking ship that is American Idol. It started when Jennifer Lopez released this statement on Thursday admitting that she's leaving, "I am thinking it's time for me to go and do other things I love to do," she said.
Not to be outdone, her fellow judge Steven Tyler decided in flamboyant fashion to bid adieu to Idol as well, with this crazy ass press release below:
“After some long...hard...thoughts…I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress ‘American Idol’ before she boils my rabbit. I strayed from my first love, AEROSMITH, and I’m back – but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I’ve got two fists in the air and I’m kicking the door open with my band. The next few years are going to be dedicated to kicking some serious ass – the ultimate in auditory takeover…On Nov. 6, we are unleashing our new album, Music from Another Dimension on the Earth, Moon, Mars, and way beyond the stars…IDOL was over-the-top fun, and I loved every minute of it…Now it’s time to bring Rock Back. ERMAHGERD.”
American Idol and Fox executives released more normal statements,
calling Tyler "a terrific judge" and "a real ‘Idol,'" and inviting him
to back to the show any time.
As for Randy, he'll probably be sitting on that judging table alone while playing this ditty below:
