On Tuesday, Earsucker.com learned that Aerosmith singer and American Idol judge Steven Tyler had fallen in a hotel shower. As a result, he knocked out a couple of his teeth and got a black eye. It was later found that his injuries were the result of some food poisoning. Now, he wants his fans to know that his injuries were not caused because of drug abuse.
Steven talked to Matt Lauer via a telephone call on the Today show to discuss the situation. He said, “I get why people think that…It still bothers me a little, but it’s something that I have to deal with for the rest of my life.”
He went on to say, “We flew last night from Paraguay after that incident and we’re in Argentina for two hours. And anyone who knows anyone who uses substances wouldn’t be up at this hour having a talk with Matt Lauer and the rest of America.”
Matt asked, “But you’re clean and sober, that’s not the issue?”
Steven replied, “No, it’s not the issue.”
His injuries look pretty nasty, don’t they? Still — the show must go on, right???
