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."

they better not replace paula with coutney at least when paula is loopy she is so sweet and fun to watch. Cortney does drugs and booze not only is she no better. But are we forgetting that she is a real witch when shes not boozed and druged up she will be cusing out simon , randy contestents throwiing things at them beating them up. There nuts to even consider her. Remember what she did to Madonna at the mtv music awards throwing shoes at the back of her head during an interview. She is so mean and nasty. and paula is so sweet and fun to watch.
