Steven Tyler claims his Aerosmith bandmates were "jealous" when he became an "American Idol" judge ... interesting, considering Joe Perry recently slammed Tyler for getting involved with the show.
Tyler explained the band's ongoing beef today after his long-awaited "Idol" unveiling -- but added that when push comes to shove, "I'm sure they're real happy for me."
Sure they are.
