Steven Tyler Shows Up on CNN’s Blizzard Coverage
The blizzard that has shut down the East Coast hasn’t kept Steven Tyler away from the television cameras. Today (Jan. 23), he appeared on CNN’s coverage of the storm with his daughter, Mia, which can be viewed above.
Tyler is in New York for a few days promoting his upcoming solo album, whose second single, “Red, White & You,” was released yesterday. He did a spot on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last night and will be on Howard Stern’s satellite radio show on Monday. He decided to use the time in between to visit his daughters and their families, and while he and Mia were walking the streets, they were spotted by CNN’s Poppy Harlow.
“I’m gonna hunker down,” he said. “I got a funny feeling this storm is gonna keep us here a couple of extra days […] no matter how much [snow we get].” Mia recalled that the two of them used to love playing in the snow when she was growing up. “He’s a big kid, so the minute I got up here, I was like, ‘Let’s go play!'”
Although Tyler did not say that he had not seen that much snow since the backstage area of California Jam 2 in 1978, he did have advice for those who felt they could brave the snow and head outside. “Do not do it,” he said. “It’s supposed to go until 12, 1:00 in the morning, so there will be another foot of snow. Stay home. Two words: Hot chocolate,” to which Mia added, “and family hugs.”
