Steven Tyler Pleads With Legislators to Regulate TV
The singer, who has enjoyed a pop culture surge since joining 'American Idol' as a judge, is urging officials in the Supreme Court to increase legislation against indecent content and profanity on TV. Really? If we remember correctly, Tyler did drop a few eff bombs while on the 'Idol' panel, all of which were censored, of course. Despite that fact, he wants to maintain better standards on the boob tube.
Since 2010, single curse words on live TV and nude segments via fine broadcasters are incidents no longer punishable by the FCC. The FCC is appealing the ruling and the United States Supreme Court is currently listening to hearings about decency standards regarding such in broadcasting. This caught Tyler's attention.
In a chat with the Associated Press, Tyler said, "There's a certain charm and passion and magic in not showing full-frontal nudity. It's really hot when you only show a little..." Perhaps in real life, yes, but during entertainment? Not so sure, Steven!
He admitted to cursing on air with 'Idol' but says it's no fun to channel surf if curse words are being dropped at every stop. Tyler is nothing if not an unconventional supporter of regulated TV.
