Steven Tyler: Fox “made an offer”

Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler confirmed that Fox has offered him the job as a judge on American Idol 10. Fox, however, refused to discuss even the possibility this morning.

“This beautiful girl from Fox came up to me and made an offer. I honored her offer… and it’s just a work in progress. They mentioned it and I listened, and we’re on tour, so I gotta give it some time,” he told the radio show “Kid Kraddick in the Morning,” according to Billboard.

Saturday, Tyler told TMZ “I’m doing it … What do ya think? I’m doing it!”
