Steven Tyler Talks Love And Scarves On Ellen

Steven Tyler told us more than we ever wanted to know about what attracted him to new fiancee Erin Brady.

Steven Tyler talks about old fashioned fiancee

Steven Tyler revealed to Ellen DeGeneres what first attracted him to new fiancee Erin Brady — her scarf.

"The first time I saw her... she worked for Clear Channel so she was paying the band. And I didn't notice her and one night she had on this hair band around her head. She looked really old fashioned... So I took her back in the room and she tied me up with it and I thought, 'I'm marrying this girl,'" the American Idol judge told the talk show host.

"So it's just a scarf around the head for you. That's what does it?" DeGeneres asked the aging rocker. It's actually not surprising — he's used multiple scarves on his Aerosmith microphones for years.

"Yes, it's the imagery and how deep one can get into it…" he added.

Okay, let's stop right there — we don't need to know about Tyler's kinky bedroom preferences. Still, it sounds like Brady has changed the singer for the better.

"I just said, 'Hey, listen, if you play, I'm gonna play,'" Brady told Oprah of their talk about monogamy. "He didn't really like when he was on the other side of that scenario."

"I may come off as a sexual animal, and I definitely am on stage, 'cause trust me, I feel it myself," he said. "But I'm not really, really that. I'll sing about it, I put it out there but I'm not," he reasoned. "I'd like to go on a schtupping spree and screw every girl I see, that would want to have me, who wouldn't? But I don't. I want [Erin] for my own, and if that's gonna take that away from it, I don't [do it]."

Well, good — we're glad he's staying on the up-and-up. He even claims he's been sober for two years.

"You never know if it takes. I have a program. I got all my friends that are sober now," he said on Ellen. "What it is, it's euphoric recall. You hear music and you can get so high and the curtain comes down. It's no different than doing a bump. It's the same thing and that's why it is so dangerous for me. I can't get back into that world... I mean out here with you right now my heart's pounding. Hearing you guys [the audience] roar. This is what I live for today. But you never know if it's going to stick."

Sure, why not. If he is happy, why not. He made millions happy, and gets bashed by people who are insecure. If someones uality is a personal issue with yourself. Then its an issue with YOURSELF. If she makes him happy great. Beautiful women fall for men for the right reasons as well. Not everyone is after the bank or looks. Love and passion for one another in the end is what survives when all else fails. Hey if she is after his money there is a prenuptial that can be drawn up. If the marrage doesn't happen then that's sad. Too bad. If someone doesn't agree with Steven Tyler don't look him up, read about him, and get a life. I'm sure all the haters lives are a mess or screwed up so much that they need to find fault in others to make them feel better about themselves. That simple.

He's a sick man, how embarrasing. She's after his money, she's smart and knows how to control him. It's probably the scarf. I would never put out my private business for no one. She's just as bad. Well after 6 years is this how he sums up his reason for falling for her. I can think of a hundred reasons why a person should love who their with. She'll dump him, or get him back on drugs so she can control his money. What a big joke. He needs to get some class, and so does she. If he talked that way about me I'd leave him, he's nasty, always looking for attention. I know Teresa is happy to get rid of that mess.
