After it was rumored that American Idol judge and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler had married Erin Brady in Hawaii, he confirmed that they are actually engaged.
Steven and Erin have been an item since 2006, but he has just revealed what attracted him to her in the first place. He told Ellen DeGeneres in a new interview, “She has on this hair band on around her head. She looked really old-fashioned, so I took her back in the room and she tied me up with it and I thought, ‘I’m marrying this girl.'”
He went on to say that he didn’t even notice her when they first met. When he saw her for the first time, she was an employee for Clear Channel Communications. He said, “I didn’t notice her.”
Still, along with being with Erin for five years and with two years of sobriety under his belt, he doesn’t live for drugs any longer. He has already been to rehab on more than a few occasions, and that’s an experience that he doesn’t wish to repeat.
He added, “I can’t get back into that world. I can stay high on stage and stay high. I just keep with my program, wish and hope.”
Steven will be judging the upcoming season of American Idol, along with Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez. Stay tuned for the scoop on that!
