In December, a woman named Julia Misley filed a lawsuit against Steven Tyler, alleging that he sexually abused her in the 1970s when she was barely 16 and he was 25. Julia said that she hoped her lawsuit will “expose an industry that protects celebrity offenders.” Steven filed a response last week refuting her claims by, get this, saying he did nothing wrong, that she consented to their relationship, and that he has immunity since he was her legal guardian at the time. What in the the mental gymnastics??
Steven Tyler’s Being Sued For Allegedly Sexually Assaulting A Minor In The 1970s And Coercing Her Into Having An Abortion
No, that isn’t your self-proclaimed “Cool Aunt Jacqui” cosplaying as a constipated Captain Jack Sparrow; it’s a smug Steven Tyler trying not to let on that he’s about to soil his drawers while pondering the possible consequences of his actions as a fully-grown man back in 1973. Julia Holcomb is suing Steven for sexual assault, sexual battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Steven “allegedly” (but he wrote about it in his memoir and included it in an Aerosmith book, too…) began a three-year sexual relationship with a then 16-year-old Julia. She also alleges that he coerced her into getting an abortion.
Aerosmith was supposed to kick off a Las Vegas residency starting next month, but today the band announced that they’re cancelling their summer concerts. Steven Tyler has suffered a recent relapse and voluntarily checked into rehab. The Blue Army is extra blue today (apparently that’s what blue-collar/blue jean-wearing Aerosmith fans call themselves, thank you Google).
As one old man feud ends, another takes its place. Aerosmith is currently in a messy fight over who gets to perform at several Grammy events this weekend. Joey Kramer, who has been the drummer for Aerosmith since the beginning, naturally assumed he’d be present. But Aerosmith doesn’t think Joey is ready to return after Joey’s temporary disability, and they decided to replace him. Joey says he’s all better now, and he’s really not happy that everyone will be jamming out to Aeorsmith (minus their original drummer) this weekend.
Aerosmith had to cancel a few shows at the tail end of a tour in South America due to “health reasons” relating to Hamptonswear enthusiast Steven Tyler. And since we’re all a little jumpy these days, especially considering that we just lost Tom Petty, people freaked out and speculated that Steven was in a bad way. According to a statement on the band’s website, some folks thought that Steven had suffered from a heart attack or seizure. Well, Steven wants everybody to calm the fuck down! He’s fine.
Look, I love a comfortable, loose fitting, crisp white v-neck shirt dress as much as the next guy. It’s elegant, yet understated, simple but classic. It quietly assures “I have money but I’m not going to rub it in your face.” It’s as appropriate at a red carpet event (think Diane Keaton at a Nancy Meyers movie premiere) as it is at a garden party in the Hamptons (think Diane Keaton at Nancy Meyers’ house).
But I’m here to tell you, Steven Tyler has got this classic look twisted. Steven showed up at the Celebrity Fight Night Final Gala 2017 at Cinecitta Studios (how does he get all the good invites?!?!) looking like Martha Stewart on the top, Dr. Frankenstein’s monster on the bottom with some sloppy black pants and chunky black shoes. Those sad, baggy black pants don’t even fit. And not one decorative scarf to tie this look together? I would have expected more out of Steven.
I will hand it to him though. The pockets (who doesn’t love a pocket!) and casually cuffed sleeve are divine, and Steven is doing an excellent job working his angles and finding the light. It’s just…I don’t want to see him flounce onto a cushy white couch clutching a paperback and a glass of pinot gris with those fucking clodhopper boots on!
Here’s some more of Steven in the outfit that was ALMOST perfect.
