This is quite the admission!
Steven Tyler has been living like a rock star his entire adult life, and he's the first to admit that sex, drugs, and rock & roll dominated his days until he made the decision to become sober.
Although it has been famously reported that the legendary singer spent more than $20 million on drugs, he insists that's not entirely true.
"Realistically, 5 or 6 [million]. But it doesn't matter. You also could say I snorted half of Peru, but it doesn't matter," he revealed during an interview with Australian show 60 Minutes.
The Aerosmith crooner became addicted to drugs in the late 1970's and it wasn't until he sought treatment in 1986 that he turned his life around. He encountered a minor bump along the road when he developed a prescription pill addiction and reentered treatment in 2009.
He has been clean and healthy ever since, so we have to give a big congrats to Mr. Tyler!
