Scoop: Aerosmith worried for Tyler

In the wake of Steven Tyler’s announcement that he’s taking a break from Aerosmith, rumors have surfaced that the recovering drug addict has relapsed. And his fellow band members are worried about him.

“I think that he needs help and that attention needs to be put to his health,” drummer Joey Kramer opined to “People,” while not commenting on whether the rock frontman has used drugs recently. “He’s got some bad influences in his life right now and he’s making poor choices.”

“His behavior is spinning out of control,” seconds guitarist Brad Whitford, who says Steven’s “erratic” and “unpredictable” conduct has been “progressively getting out of hand” — and has caused “loads of cancellations, canceled tours and canceled dates.”

Concludes Joey, who is hopeful Steven will reunite with the band, “He needs to take care of his health first and get help in order for there to be a future for an Aerosmith that includes him.” Steven, are you listening?

Changing Amy

Amy Winehouse landed in the hospital because her brand-new breast implants were leaking — but reportedly, that hasn’t deterred her from wanting even more surgical changes.

A source reveals to the U.K.’s Daily Mirror that “Amy’s become totally obsessed with surgery since her boob job” and is determined to get a nose job despite her loved ones’ entreaties to reconsider. “She wants her nose made smaller to fit with her small face as she hates the fact her nose is so big and she doesn’t like the shape.”

And that’s not all: “She said she won’t stop until she’s totally happy with herself and is even considering bum implants as she wants more of a curvy bum,” the source says of the now-clean “Rehab” singer. “She hates the fact she has no hips and a flat bottom and wants to change this to fit in with her new boobs.”

Uh-oh. Is Amy replacing one addiction with another?

Rihanna: Single

Forget the rumors about Rihanna and Tristan Wilds. The singer says she’s unattached and barely knows the “90210” hunk.

“I’m not dating anyone,” the Barbadian beauty, who recently spoke out about the painful demise of her abusive relationship with Chris Brown, told “Access Hollywood.” “I’m single and ready to mingle!”

However, her album is currently taking precedence over romance: “I don’t really want to date night now,” she said. “I don’t want a serious relationship only because it’s a lot of time and energy and a big commitment. And right now I’m just focused on ‘Rated R.’”

As for Tristan, “I don’t know if I would say he’s my friend,” RiRi said. “He came to one of my parties, but we don’t have even have each other’s cell phone numbers, so I don’t know what you call that.”

Well, we would call it enough to provide fodder for a rumor that you’re dating him.
