Steven Tyler is worried his excitement about the talent on the current series of American Idol could land him in trouble - because he'll happily curse on live TV if he enjoys a performance.
The Aerosmith rocker has become an instant hit on the U.S. TV talent show for his supportive comments and outlandish quips.
But the star fears TV executives could soon lose faith in him because he's convinced he'll swear during the show's live stages.
He tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "I really love Idol. There's a lot of talent and some great kids out there. Now we are seeing 15-year-olds who seem like they are 28. We are taping live now, and I am trying not to swear, but sometimes you've just got to be emphatic. If someone is f**ing good, I'm going to say it."
