Courtney Love has been invited to be a judge on 'American Idol'.
The former Hole singer has revealed the hit TV show's executive
producer Nigel Lythgoe called her last week to ask if she'd be
interested in joining Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson
on the judging panel.
Courtney told Us Weekly magazine: "He called. He was wondering
if I was interested. I thought it was kind of weird but brilliant." It is not known if Courtney will be joining the existing three
judges to choose America's next singing sensation, or if Lythgoe is
considering replacing Paula. Paula - known for her bitter ongoing
feud with Simon - has fuelled rumours that she is battling
substance abuse by appearing in a series of interviews this January
where she was seen swaying and slurring her words. A representative
for 'American Idol' was not available for comment.
