steven tyler getty 'American Idol': Steven Tyler fires back at Kid RockRemember when singer Kid Rock slammed Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler‘s decision to become a judge on “American Idol” saying, “I think it’s the stupidest thing he’s done in his entire life” and that “He’s a sacred American institution of rock ‘n’ roll and he just threw it all out the window”?

Well, Tyler has finally responded and he’s not holding any punches.

“He’s just jealous,” Tyler tells “Access Hollywood.” It seems he also thinks Kid Rock insulted him just to garner attention for his latest album. “He’s working on a new album and God bless him.”

What do you think Zappers? Is Kid Rock jealous of Tyler or do you think Tyler really did make a bad move by joining the show?
