Since he used to be an American Idol judge himself, it's safe to say that Aerosmith's lead man, Steven Tyler, knows how the show works. TMZ caught up with the singer (more like harassed him as he was trying to get into his car) and asked him if he thought the Mariah Carey/Nicki Minaj feud was staged, to which he replied, "of course!"
The paparazzi then asked him, "When are you coming back?" His response to this question was the very blunt, "I ain't never going back!" We don't blame ya, Steve. You have a nice head of hair, and it'd be a shame to see it get ripped out by some crazy, fake-nail-wielding she-beasts.
Watch Steven Tyler respond to the Mariah-Nicki beef below.
