Steven Tyler Unimpressed with Mick Jagger’s SNL Impersonation
Steven Tyler is probably used to people making fun of him at this point in his life. Lots of folks have impersonated the Aerosmith singer over the years, so I’m sure he’s developed a thick skin when dealing with those who enjoy having a jolly good laugh at his expense. However, Tyler was slightly unimpressed with Mick Jagger’s portrayal of the “American Idol” judge on last weekend’s season finale of “Saturday Night Live”.
During the skit “So You Think You Can Dance at an Outdoor Music Festival”, Jagger donned a wig and a colorful scarf for his impersonation of the accomplisher rocker, which many, myself included, thought was fairly hilarious. For Saturday Night Live, anyway. Tyler, on the other hand, didn’t think too highly of the bit.
“They got it so wrong; He could have done the yeah yeah yeah!,” Tyler explained to Hollywood Life. He also added, “I thought he looked good with long hair, I’ve always wanted him to grow it back.” That, my friends, is what you call a “kiss and kick”.
However, despite his criticisms of the Rolling Stone singer’s performance, Tyler admitted that the sketch was “fun”. I’m not sure if that’s a code word for something else, but we’ll give the singer the benefit of the doubt. Besides, given how many times people have made fun of Mick Jagger over the years, it seems only fair that he’s able to return the favor in one way or another.
For extra fun, have a look at what a few people on Twitter think of Steven Tyler. Although the comments are more than a little harsh, they’re kind of funny nonetheless.
Steven Tyler’s wardrobe is totally ready for when he dies and turns into a ghost.
Steven Tyler may be leaving American Idol. If that’s true, it’s the first time he’s ever left a place with Coke still on the table.
