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.
