Dude looks like a lady, indeed.
Is that you, Steven Tyler? The Aerosmith rocker made a trip to his old “American Idol” stomping grounds on Thursday night’s episode of the hit Fox show, dressed even more outlandishly than he did when he was a judge on the show. He was in drag!
The 64-year-old, who introduced himself as Pepper LaBeija from the 1990 documentary “Paris Is Burning,” donned a blonde wig, a perfect red pucker, leopard print dress, faux fur vest, black stockings and heeled booties for his big chance to score a golden ticket to Hollywood.
Current “Idol” judges Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj and veteran Randy Jackson looked surprised to see such an interesting hopeful at the Oklahoma City auditions, but gave him the benefit of the doubt and asked him what he’d be singing.
“Tell you’re ma, tell you’re pa, our love gonna grow wa wa,” LaBeija replied.
But before he showed the judges his vocal chops ,he told them, “I'm going to judge your (bleep). The roosters may crow, but the hens deliver the goods. You know what I'm saying?"
The Demon of Screamin’ never did show off his pipes, but he did squeeze one of his fake breasts which gave a loud honk and was sure to ask the judges, "Do I go through to Hollywood or what?"
Sadly, the former judge got the heave-ho from the current panel and was dismissed from his audition – but not before he ripped off his golden tresses and mooned the judges! It looks like this fancy move scored him some points because as he opened the door to Ryan Seacrest he was holding his ticket to Hollywood!
So Steven, was this your audition to get your job back on “Idol?”
