Here’s what landed Steven on Nicki’s hit list:
“If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield!” he told MTV News. “Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with [‘Idol’ contestant] Phillip Phillips.
They should have something going on so thick and beautiful that they can lay it over the new talent that’s trying to birth itself. It needs to be birthed, [not] judged by ‘entertainment’ factors, it needs to be judged by people that are honest, true, that have the ‘it’ factor. Not the ‘it’ factor because they can fight.”
“Steven Tyler said I would have sent Bob Dylan to a cornfield??? Steven, you haven’t seen me judge one single solitary contestant yet!
You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what? go fuck yourself and worry about yourself babe.
LOL lets make him a shirt that says ‘No Coloreds Allowed’ then escort him down 2 Barbara Walters so he can tell how he was threatened w/guns.
I understand you really wanted to keep your job but take that up with the producers. I haven’t done anything to you. That’s a racist comment.”
