American Idol on FOX‘s judge Steven Tyler is making quite an impression as one of the new judges on the show. Recently, he shared his thoughts on Simon Cowell and Simon Cowell also shared some thoughts on Steven. Keep reading to find out what both of these fellows had to say about one another!
American Idol’s newest sensation Steven Tyler was recently quoted in a UK paper stating that he was not brought in to “replace” Simon Cowell and “I think one of the biggest problems was Simon hurt people. His comments were nasty. It was too much. I’ve tried to be myself and be different to Simon. If people like it, then that’s great.” When the same reporter asked Simon about the comments made by Steven Tyler, Simon replied “I couldn’t care less” and he then went on to compliment the show by saying “I think they’ve done a good job on the show this year.”
In a comical dig at Steven Tyler, Simon Cowell appeared on The Jay Leno show recently and told Jay “I haven’t watched the whole show. But my mom, who is 86, I think she forgot that I wasn’t on the show this year.” as he tells a tale of how his mom called him to find out why she did not see him there and then went on to tell her son “Tell Jennifer, the new girl, I like her. Give my love to Randy. And tell Paula she looks a bit tired.” Supposedly that is a true story, but you never know – should be interesting to see if Steven Tyler responds to that one!
