We Don't Know Who Had It Worse: Steven Tyler's Face, Or The Hotel Shower

October 27, 2011 at 9:59 AM | by | ()

"You can't handle the tooth," 63-year-old Steven Tyler joked to Matt Lauer on the Today Show earlier this morning, when the rock star phoned in from South America to explain his recent injury. Apparently, the singer was battling "food poisoning" (yeah right, and his daughter Liv Tyler is actually an Elf Princess) when he lost his balance and fell face first into the shower floor.

Tyler was staying at the Bourbon Hotel in Paraguay, and thanks to his tour manager, located a nearby hospital to stitch up his eye, re-align his face, and fix his broken tooth. Now, that must have been a pretty heavy fall. And knowing what we know, Mr. Tyler can be a little accident prone. So we have to wonder. Who do you think suffered more damage: Steven Tyler's face, or the shower stall?

Good Morning America may have given Adam Lambert the cold shoulder by revoking an invite for a performance on the show after his man-on-man kiss at the American Music Awards (come on, Madge made out with Britney and Xtina at the VMAs), but the Hard Rock San Diego is showing the singer some love. The hotel is bragging about its latest wearable-art display: Lambert's KISS-inspired suit from American Idol.

Glamberts will want to make a beeline for the hotel's first floor, where the all-black getup from the eighth-season Idol finale with the wire wings will be featured. The outfit joins displayed garb from such icons as Madonna, the Beatles and the King, Elvis Presley.

What is the Saddest Hotel in All of San Francisco?

Sigh. The saddest hotel in all of San Francisco -- no, make that California -- must be the Hotel Nikko. The place is set to reek of crushed hopes and dreams and probably also failure.

Get this: this summer, the Hotel Nikko's Rrazz room will be the first stop for Idols in Concert, the "traveling cabaret" of former American Idol contestants who placed mostly between fifth and eighth in the first six seasons of the show. This is not to be confused with the American Idols Live! tour; this is the Idol B-Team.

In a very, very depressing article, the SF Chronicle writes:

Beginning in July, 17 castoffs from the first six seasons of the popular Fox television singing competition will get a reprieve from the county fair circuit...finalists such as Gina Glocksen, Constantine Maroulis, Lisa Tucker, Christina Christian and Paris Bennett [Ed note: Who, who and who?], plus a handful of less memorable names...will reprise the performances that got them the most votes on the series.

It just makes us sad, you know? The show runs for 9 weeks at the Nikko before moving on. Tickets cost somewhere between $45 and $55; rooms at the Hotel Nikko start around $180.

Let's just say, hypothetically, that you and three of your friends were stranded in San Francisco with only $50 each. Would you rather spend that money on four tickets to the Idols in Concert show or, um, chip in to score a room at the 4 Diamond hotel hosting it?

Yeah, us too.
