This week, Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler announced that if the band were to stay together, they would leave Columbia Records for good and go the indie route. He’s done it before, he can do it again. Justin Bieber released another music video, this time for “Beauty and a Beat,” just another song about wanting a girlfriend. And Lana Del Rey debuted a music video about what it’s like to be crazy. It’s like kissing a bunch of old dudes apparently. All that and more below.

The National Anthem—sure, it’s a stirring and poetic encapsulation of the best elements of the American spirit, but have you ever tried to sing that thing? It’s not exactly easy. Which is exactly what Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and American Idol found out on Sunday, when he turned in an atonal and frankly embarrassing version at AFC Championship game. Check out the video after the jump.

Look at the face in the picture above, gang—that’s the picture of sobriety, according Steven Tyler, the owner of said bruised and battered mug. The 63 year old American Idol host and Aerosmith frontman apparently took a tumble in the shower in Asuncion, Paraguay on Tuesday—but Tyler swears that it has nothing to do with his long battle with substance abuse, and that he has not fallen off the wagon.

I think of the Aerosmith story in two parts, everything that happened before the release of their hit album Permanent Vacation and everything after.
It’s the everything after part that’s shaky, including some mediocre music and a lead singer playing judge on a hack talent show. But in the days before “Dude Looks Like A Lady” reignited the band’s popularity in 1987, Aerosmith released a series of albums between 1973 and 1987 that contain some of the finest music in rock n’ roll history.
And now, Apple has signed a mega deal with Columbia Records to add never before released digital versions of these classic Aerosmith albums to iTunes, which are available right now.

Hot on the heels of the news that Madonna will be releasing a wholly and totally unnecessary album next year, Rolling Stone reported today that Aerosmith, too, are hard at work on a wholly and totally unnecessary album (it will be their fourteenth studio disc). So, once again, Steven Tyler will have an excuse to dress like your wacky grandma from Arizona and do his best Mick Jagger impression on tour.

As part of his recent quest to regain some relevance, Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler will be releasing a memoir this May, according to Show Biz Spy. The book, entitled Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?, will likely deal with all the usual trials and tribulations of rock star life–sex, drugs, and reluctantly fading into pop culture obscurity. Tyler said that the process of writing it was “cathartic.”

It’s been a big year for Steven Tyler–maybe even bigger than the year that Armageddon reminded viewers that Aerosmith used to write good ol’fashioned blues rock (just turn the movie off before the end credits and you can forget that the group turned into a boy band for a few years). By taking a gig as a judge on “American Idol,” the rocker renewed interest in his band, resulting in a welcome increase in sales.
Now, Spin tells us they’ll all be heading back to the studio to record a new album. Might those dollar signs have had something to do with this?
