Steven Tyler on 'Idol'

Show Me the Money!

8/13/2010 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Steven Tyler is playing a little bit of hardball with "American Idol" execs -- saying they better "lay out the bread" if they want him to come on board.

Steven Tyler - American Idol
Less than two weeks ago, the Aerosmith singer proclaimed "I'm doing it" when asked if he was gonna be on "Idol." But yesterday in New York, he seemed to be playing coy when asked whether he was going to take the gig.

We smell a negotiation ploy!

I don't blame him at all. Get your money honey! Please believe that everybody involved is going to get paid and well. Why shouldn't he get his piece of the action? They want all these really famous people to do this show but they don't want to pay them. It don't work like that.

Wow....This ass clown should have taken his money and drugs and just retired to an island about 20 years ago. He is somewhere between laughable and obnoxious in the appearance department.
His singing skills have left the building, and he is no longer relevant.
What are they thinking?

most of these comments show people who comment are stupid... thank God I'm not one of them... Steven Tyler would be the only reason I would ever watch the show after the auditions in the first place...

"lay out the bread??" how old is this guy? I haven't heard the term "bread" since the 70's.

As for Bret, I think he has reached his 15 minutes. I would like to see Britney. remember Paula was a bit "washed up" and Britney is too now. It worked.

So randy, Britney and Harry gets my vote.
