The big story from last night’s Idol would normally have been Casey Abrams kissing Jennifer Lopez during his rendition of Maroon 5‘s “Harder To Breathe” (an ironic choice considering M5′s Adam Levine is a judge on The Voice), but Steven Tyler had to go and steal Casey’s thunder with an f-bomb. “There are millions of people in America that are really angry, because you pissed them off because you’re so f—ing good!” shouted Tyler, who kept right on going (“you’ve changed so many people’s minds!”) as Randy Jackson futilely attempted to call a time out. It’s not surprising the Aerosmith singer wouldn’t realize his faux pas: if Steven Tyler had a dollar for every time he’s said “f—”…well, Steven Tyler actually might have a dollar for every time he’s said “f—.”
According to Entertainment Weekly, Nigel Lythgoe and some Fox execs had a smiley-but-serious pow wow with Tyler during an ad break. While they must have known the singer could easily slip on a live show, it might have been his obliviousness to his crudity that got them nervous. Can’t have a guy on TV who doesn’t even remember which words are curse words, can you? See the kiss—and the f-bomb—after the jump.
Plenty of women will be dreaming of Casey’s “soft lips” after last night…and that just weirds us out.
