By now everyone knows American Idol is going through quite the shakeup, making major changes to their judge’s panel. While Jennifer Lopez has spoken out about her reason for leaving, we have heard nothing from Steven Tyler. Until now that is. The Aerosmith frontman is more than happy to explain his reason for parting ways with the show. It is being said that the FOX network was pressuring Steven pretty hard to become the “mean” judge, and he was so NOT for that! Steven said “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 Simon. Not me.” Very well put! Do you agree with Steven, or would you like to see the judge’s become MEAN?
