Steven Tyler Shows Freaky Stitched Up Face With Broken Tooth: [ send to a friend ]
Steven Tyler shared a photo of his busted up face with the 'Today' show on Thursday to assure fans he was fine after falling in a hotel bathroom.
But after seeing the freaky photo of Tyler's busted lip, cut forehead and broken front teeth, even host Matt Lauer wasn't convinced.
"You look like the wrong guy in a fight," said Lauer.
Tyler, who had to postpone an Aerosmith show in Paraguay after the fall, insisted it was the result of a bathroom fall and didn't have anything to do with his ongoing recovery from drug and alcohol abuse.
"Frankly, I just passed out," Tyler explained. "I was in the shower and I got nauseous and I started to get sick and I just fell on my face. I just passed out and woke up with the water on."
"I get that people think that. It still bothers me a little, but it's something that I have to deal with for the rest of my life."
"Being in the program, it's something we have to expect. People thinking that is natural and normal."
"We flew last night from Paraguay after that incident and now we're in Argentina for two hours."
"And anyone who knows anyone who uses substances wouldn't be up at this hour having a talk with Matt Lauer and the rest of America."
