Aerosmith: Steven Tyler talks American Idol

“We’re in negotiations.”

That was the only answer Steven Tyler gave FoxNews in Boston this past Wednesday regarding his status for American Idol next season.

As for fellow judges Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez, Tyler said, “I don’t know. We’re all in negotiations right now.”

Earlier this week, Entertainment Weekly reported that Fox had confirmed that Tyler and Jackson are set to return to the judges’ table for season 11 of the popular reality series, but no reference was made to Lopez’ status.

The Aerosmith frontman attended Boston Common magazine's summer bash at the House of Blues in Boston, where he was asked about the Idol situation and his return to his hometown.

“It’s always great to be home. I’ve been away for so long,” said Tyler. “You know, we jumped right into writing some songs; we got three already and the band is rockin’.”

“We’re working on the album right now,”
Steven continued, “We go on tour November/December, and we should have the album finished in a couple of months.”
