Walk this wayâ€¦to the O.R. to get dental surgery. In a call to the Today show’s Matt Lauer this morning, Steven Tyler denies that his recent nasty fall was the result of drug use, blaming instead a bout with food poisoning. â€œI started to get sick, and I just fell on my face. I just passed out,â€ he explained. When Lauer pressed him, asking, “But you’re clean and sober, that’s not the issue?” Tyler confirmed, “No, it’s not the issue.” It’s never a good sign when the lesser of two evils is severe food poisoning, but considering how intense Steven Tyler’s drug problem used to be, we’ll take it!
Steven Tyler’s shower fall earlier this week left the Aerosmith singer bloody, bruised and missing two teeth, which sort of works for his look, but still! â€œI get that people think that,â€ Tyler says, referring to people’s assumptions about his drug use. â€œIt still bothers me a little, but itâ€™s something that I have to deal with for the rest of my life.â€ Hmm, could Tyler’s fall have something to do with the fact that he weighs 85 lbs soaking wet, not including all those scarves? The second his hair got wet, the man wouldn’t be able to lift his head anymore. That’s must be what happened. Case closed!
