Love To Replace Abdul On Idol?
Rocker Courtney Love is considering an offer from American Idol producers to possibly replace Paula Abdul as a celebrity judge on the hit TV talent show.
Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe contacted Love's office last week (ends26JAN07), inquiring if the former Hole singer would be interested in a role on the reality series.
The MALIBU singer confirms to American publication Us Weekly, "He called. He was wondering if I was interested. I thought it was kind of weird, but brilliant!"
Love, who is currently in Los Angeles recording a solo album, refused to say if she had specifically been asked to take Abdul's place on the show.
But a source confirms Lythgoe was considering having Love "replace Paula".
Abdul made headlines earlier this month (JAN07) when she behaved oddly during live television interviews in the US to promote the hit talent show.
She has since blamed a technical glitch for her strange performances, during which she slurred her words and appeared intoxicated.
She has since denied reports she was drunk during the interviews, insisting, "I've never been drunk in my life - ever."
