You have doubtlessly shed a bitter tear over professional fishmouth Steven Tyler's departure from his post as an American Idol judge. Said Tyler in what could loosely be called a statement: "After some long…hard…thoughts…I've decided it's time for me to let go of my mistress 'American Idol' before she boils my rabbit." (That is a Fatal Attraction reference, not the sexual euphemism that I thought it was initially, as in "put your rabbit away, Steven Tyler".) Now it seems that Jennifer Lopez is hinting about leaving and Randy Jackson might step down in favor of a more "mentoring" role. Chaos!
But lo, a new sunrise breaks over the horizon, for Mimi Carey might step in to fill the void. She is in talks to be a new judge along with a "freshened-up" judges' panel that the producers are currently working on. You heard it here first: American Idol is getting a douche.
