I've been enjoying watching "American Idol" this season. I have a confession to make: I am in love with Steven Tyler. I don't mean like romantic love, but he comes across as such a nice person, and I would describe him as a sort of "America's sweetheart". I didn't know who he was when he started the show. I decided to google his name, and only then knew that he is/was the lead singer for Aerosmith. Another confession: I couldn't name even one Aerosmith song. But as I have been reading more about Steven Tyler, and watching him on Idol, I have been hearing the songs and have been saying to myself, "Oh THAT'S Aerosmith!"
I would hope that my children wouldn't look to his early years for a role model, but I give him credit for pulling himself out of the hole he had dug for himself. I watched an interview with Matt Lauer today, and was really impressed with how Steven Tyler has gotten his life together. You can watch it by clicking here.
What else do I like about Steven Tyler? I like his free spirit. I like that he can wear really creative colors and patterns, and really wild clothing, and pull it off! I like that at 63 years old he still seems young. I like that he is so positive in his comments to all of the contestants on Idol. I like his open personality, and his willingness to smile. You watch; soon you will see him on the front of some magazine like "People" with a title that says, "People's Most Interesting Person". Or maybe with the title I wrote above, "America's Sweetheart". :)
