In early July, Steven Tyler announced he'd be leaving American Idol to focus on making music with Aerosmith. But his departure from the show also freed him up to spend more time with other loves – his dogs.
"[I have] a Yorkie and a Morkie," he tells TIME. "One is a teacup I put in my pocket. And the other one I put in a sling over my shoulder, and I walk around, and it's the cutest f–––ing thing on the planet.
After battling drug addiction for years and entering rehab multiple times, Tyler confesses that his now-sober lifestyle can get lonely at times, which is when he turns to his pooches for support.

Steven Tyler is going back to his day job.
After two seasons as a judge on American Idol, the Aerosmith frontman says he won't be returning to the reality show and will, instead, be focusing once again on his band.
"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," the rocker said in a statement Thursday. "I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I'm back – but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I got two fists in the air and I'm kicking the door open with my band."
Tyler's announcement comes amid continued chatter that Jennifer Lopez will not be returning to the popular Fox show. "I am thinking that it's time for me to go," she recently said about tackling a third season.

Wednesday's two-hour American Idol finale culminated in an big win for Phillip Phillips, but that emotional moment was just one of the best of the night. Former contestants Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young got engaged on live TV – which scored high on the emotional richter scale. Besides those two, here are the top 11 moments from Idol's season 11 finale:
Phillip Phillips sings with John Fogerty: The still-unofficial winner and Creedence Clearwater Revival's front man started the show with a pitch-perfect performance of classics "Have You Ever Seen the Rain" and "Bad Moon Rising."
Joshua Sings with Fantasia Barrino: A favorite of the judges, the third-place finisher performed a growling rendition of Elton John's "Take Me to the Pilot" with "the biggest inspiration in my life," season 2 winner Fantasia Barrino.
Top 12 women perform with Chaka Khan: They may have gone home early but Hollie Cavanagh, Skylar Laine, Erika Van Pelt, Elise Testone and Shannon Magrane got to sing "I'm Every Woman" with the legend. Not too shabby!

Accidents happen, but the show must go on.
That was Steven Tyler's outlook after he suffered a painful fall in a hotel bathroom in Paraguay on Tuesday – an incident he described in detail Thursday on NBC's Today show.
The Aerosmith frontman and American Idol judge, 63, says he was battling food poisoning and began to feel nauseous in the shower. "I started to get sick, and I just fell on my face," he said. "I just passed out."

Walk this way, Aerosmith fans! Recently rehabbed Steven Tyler is ready to rock again with his bandmates – and not without some effort on his part.
"I just auditioned and I got the gig," Tyler, 61, jokes in a new video announcing his band's upcoming European tour. "We're coming your way and rocking your world. Look out baby – because here we come again."
The rocker caused fans – and his bandmates – to worry about his health in Nov. 2009 after he displayed some erratic behavior which caused Aerosmith to cancel shows. Tyler ultimately entered rehab for painkiller addiction the next month.
The band's newly announced tour begins June 10 in Sweden – and wraps July 3 in Venice, Italy. No North American shows have been announced yet. – Brian Orloff

As Steven Tyler's bandmates ponder the future now that he has decided to take a two-year break from Aerosmith, they are also expressing concerns about the singer's well-being.
"I think that he needs help and that attention needs to be put to his health," drummer Joey Kramer tells PEOPLE.
And Kramer says he isn't referring to the broken shoulder Tyler sustained when he fell off the stage during a concert in August.
Asked if he thinks there is something else going on with Tyler, he says, "I do."
Recent reports in the Boston Herald and online suggest Tyler, who battled drug addiction in the '70s and '80s and checked into a rehab center last year to detox from painkillers, may be partying again.
Though Kramer would not say whether he has seen Tyler use drugs recently, he says he is concerned because the singer has "isolated himself."
Says Kramer, "He's got some bad influences in his life right now and he's making poor choices."
Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford tells PEOPLE, "His behavior is spinning out of control."

Joe Perry still isn't sure which way Steven Tyler's walking.
After reports swirled that Tyler might be leaving Aerosmith, his unexpected performance with bandmate Perry in New York City on Tuesday night wasn't just a shock to fans but also to Perry. At the performance, Tyler said, "I just want New York to know I'm not leaving Aerosmith."
"I was totally surprised. I had no idea he was going to show up," Perry tells PEOPLE in his first interview since the show. In fact, the pair hadn't spoken in weeks. "All I know is we walked off stage and were sitting taking our break [before] the encore and there was a bunch of commotion and I looked up and Steven was there."
