Steven Tyler is fine after falling in his hotel bathtub
Word spread like wildfire that Steven Tyler had fallen off the wagon when he fell in his hotel room bathtub in South America this week during Aerosmith's tour and needed stitches and some dental work, but not so, the American Idol judge says.
"Quite frankly, I passed out. I was in the shower, I got nauseous, I started to get sick, I fell on my face," he told the Today show’s Matt Lauer by phone from Argentina. "What's it called when you eat something ... Montezuma's revenge."
Apparently the revenge is giving him a black eye, cutting his face and breaking some teeth. His manager, who found him in the hotel room, took him to a hospital.
"It was like one-stop shopping," Tyler said. "They stitched up my eye, they did a little plastic surgery and they fixed my tooth all in one fell swoop." He's already back onstage, so everything must be fine.
