VIDEO: Steven Tyler talks Idol, Aerosmith & drugs on Ellen

Steven Tyler continued his promo swing for this week’s American Idol premiere with an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday.

Tyler’s interview covered a range of topics beyond Idol, including his recent engagement to Erin Brady, Aerosmith and his sobriety.

As outlined in his autobiography, “Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?”, part of the sobriety discussion involved Steven explaining how he did cocaine on stage during Aerosmith concerts.

“I, being the lead singer,” began Tyler, “could lean over – in a Coca-Cola can, dumped out, emptied, dried out with a hair dryer, with blow in the bottom with a straw on it – and instead of going like this [leans over to drink from straw], I’d go [sniffs from straw].”

Season 11 of American Idol kicks off Wednesday.
