Courtney Love Replacing Abdul?
hecklerspray reports: Paula Abdul gets a lot of criticism for her American Idol judging style - primarily because it consists of her staring into space, absent-mindedly drooling and trying to babble the same confusing half-sentence eight times in a row before giving up and crying.

And, if reports are to be believed, this could be Paula Abdul's final American Idol. It has been suggested that the American Idol team is looking out for a new full-time female judge who'd be able to hold herself together and give a range of well-meaning constructive advice. Thing is, though, the same reports say that Paula Abdul's American Idol replacement will be Courtney Love - a woman who we imagine has spent the last year or so crawling around the floor inflating her face to ghastly proportions with a bicycle pump and muttering swearwords to herself with her vagina hanging out. Fair's fair, though - that'd be a pretty solid swap for Paula Abdul [at least they found someone with the same amount of talent as a replacement so the contestants can take her just as seriously as they did Paula. But maybe Love will some original opinions instead of being a parrot of Randy. But at this point this is just a rumor and probably total BS because as bad as Idol producers are they are not smoking crack, but see the full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
