The Next American Idol Judge ... Courtney Love?!?

by at . Comments

We'd take Paula Abdul drunk over Courtney Love sober.

Courtney Love For some reason, American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe has reportedly contacted Kurt Cobain's widow and asked her to appear as a celebrity judge on the show.

"He called," Love tells Us Magazine. "He was wondering if I was interested. I thought it was kind of weird but brilliant."

Is FOX lining up a replacement for slap-happy Paula Abdul? Or just looking to spice up the show with the always-entertaining, often-insane rocker/actress?

Love, who is currently in L.A. recording a solo album, declined to reveal any more specific details. Allow us to go on record as being very frightened, however.
