Courtney Love might replace Paula Abdul on American Idol


Us Weekly reports that Paula Abdul is being replaced with Courtney Love on American Idol. Courtney says that American Idol’s executive producer Nigel Lythgoe called her office last week inquiring if she’d be interested in sitting in as a judge.

“He called,” Love tells “He was wondering if I was interested. I thought it was kind of weird but brilliant.” But a source tells that Lythgoe was considering having Love “replace Paula.”

Doesn’t replacing Paula Abdul with Courtney Love sort of defeat the purpose of replacing Paula Abdul? It’s like getting bit by your pet dog and deciding to replace it with an angry polar bear that hasn’t eaten in two weeks. Yeah, Paula Abdul is usually drunk and incoherent, but if they put Courtney Love on the show she’d spend 90% of the time crawling on the floor crying and calling up old boyfriends to take her back. Then she’d start dry humping a trashcan before throwing up and muttering about how embarrassed she is as she falls asleep.
