Canadian superstar Avril Lavigne recently died her hair blonde because she is desperate to play troubled rocker Courtney Love in an upcoming movie.

The COMPLICATED singer is keen to land the much sought-after role in the film, which will trace Love's life from her childhood, through her marriage to late NIRVANA star Kurt Cobain, and will include her much-publicised battles with drink and drugs.

Lavigne says, "Courtney is really nice and a great mom. It would be an honour to play her.

"I've been looking for a feisty role that suits my personality, and I think this is the one."

And former Hole frontwoman Love is keen for Lavigne to portray her.

She says, "Avril rocks and is pretty enough to play me!"
