FOX’s hit series American Idol may have made a major publicity coup when it convinced musicians Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler to sign on as celebrity judges for its next season, but some people are pretty vocal about their displeasure with the decision. Notably, Kid Rock thinks Aerosmith’s lead singer made a huge mistake joining the show. In an interview on Fuse this weekend, Kid Rock reiterated his disdain with American Idol, saying “I don’t think there’s any bigger curse in life than to be famous with no money.”
It’s an interesting video, mostly because Kid Rock unabashedly takes a dig on Stephen Tyler, but also, because of his opinions on the show.
American Idol has an audience of 30 million people, but Kid Rock has notably kept his songs off the show. As he says:
“I’d like to speak to the 270 million who don’t watch that bullshit.”
Check out the video to see why Kid Rock thinks his friend Stephen Tyler is hurting his credibility by appearing on FOX’s hit show.
