Steven Tyler

Calls Bulls**t

on Nicki/Mariah Feud

Steven Tyler
thinks the entire Nicki Minaj/Mariah Carey beef is being orchestrated by the show for ratings ... and as a former judge on the show, he's one to know.

Our photog spotted the Aerosmith rocker last night leaving an L.A. restaurant -- it's called Son of a Gun (we like the name) -- and when we asked him if the entire feud was BS, he scoffed and said ... well, watch the video and you'll see.

And just in case you had hopes the scarfed one might make an "A.I." return some day ... Tyler proclaimed he'd never go back.

It's not safe for a delicate person like him.

If only everyone was as smart as I am, LOL! I said this was nothing but a hoax for ratings from the beginning, as is everything that goes on with these ignorant reality shows. Not one of them is worth watching. It's just DRAMA, DRAMA, DRAMA.

Well.. AI needs to go no doubt, but not sure I agree with Steven on this, those two have huge egos like most entertainers and just got off on a tear. I don't care for this show anymore, ever since Pia Toscano got royally sca-rewed. I watch nothing but the Voice now.

Newsflash.....I was already disappointed with both of them even being on the show, and this scam just solidifies it. Stop setting examples for the youth culture of abuse and stupidity. Have some respect for your own culture. Seriously, is this the best you can do? HIre someone witty.

I think anyone should be able to see that it is staged. There could be some animosity (celebrities are often dumb that way), but for the most part it is staged for ratings. American Idols strong points has always been the tryouts, which has become a joke because people go there now trying to get on TV and the crap has gotten out of control, and the dynamics between the judges. When Paula left, it hurt because her and Simon had a good dynamic. When Simon left, well, they should have stopped then.

I think the feud is true, which is precisely why the show got those two in the same room, because they knew the two would have countless blow-ups, and they were counting on these to boost the show's ratings.

If the producers are dumb enough to think this would help ratings, then they deserve the fact that it has come back and bitten them in the ass. People are disgusted with all involved in this crap.

Steven Tyler was only a contructive jduge during auditions of Season 10, after that he became an almost sleeping jduge, just saying "beautiful" to everything. After he saw how manipulated the whole thing is, he decided to troll 2 years of the show.

Tyler didn't say anything of the kind. He said, "of course" when asked the B S question. Your reporter put the word in his mouth. No wonder people hate tabloids.
