Courtney Love not replacing Paula Abdul


Courtney Love claimed yesterday she was being brought in to replace Paula Abdul on American Idol, but now the executive producer who allegedly called her is denying he ever made the call. He says:

“I did not call Courtney Love and am afraid someone may have misrepresented me. Courtney Love is a very talented artist, but the judges for American Idol are Paula, Randy and Simon. We have no plans to add to or replace any of them.” So who made that mysterious phone call? A source close to Love says, “It was probably a prank.” A rep for Love adds, “There’s no truth to it whatsoever.”

The first sign the story might not have been true was that the source was Courtney Love. I’m surprised she was quoted as even using words. Usually it’s just some slurred mumbling like: “Iaa wannna make nngggghh. Nggghhh it huuuuuurts. Huungry. I’mma so huungry. Nggghh.” She probably thinks she gets important calls all the time, when really she’s just talking into her shoe like it’s a phone.
