Steven Tyler signs 'American Idol' deal




Numerous blogs are reporting that Steven Tyler has officially signed with Fox to be a judge on American Idol, but as is the norm when sources are anonymous, no one can confirm it. So then the blogs write a lot of expository nonsense about why Jennifer Lopez didn't play along. Who are we to swim against the tide?

E! News, and the Hollywood Reporter all say Tyler has signed a contract, but details are non-existent. The network says only, "no comment," likely waiting for a giant reveal that will blow people's minds. Word is, however, that Steven signed for significantly less than J.Lo's reported demand for $20 million a year. He probably just wants health insurance in case he falls off a stage again.

Oh, and Randy Jackson is still in the running to be on the judges panel. Who else will say "dawg" after every single comment?
