Courtney Love to Join American Idol?

Simon, Paula, Randy and ... Courtney Love?

Hold on to your remotes, American Idol fans, because the legendary rock idol Love tells Us Weekly that American Idol wants her!

THG NOTE: We're not sure whether to believe this just yet, given that Us Weekly, who broke the story, considers Courtney Love a rock idol.

In any event, Love revealed to the website that American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe called her last week inquiring into whether she would be interested in sitting in as a judge on the hit FOX show.

"He called," said Love, who may just be trying to better her online dating prospects by hyping herself. "He was wondering if I was interested. I thought it was kind of weird but brilliant."

No word on whether Love tried to negotiate a washed-up, mid-90s package deal of sorts featuring herself and rumored boyfriend Billy Corgan.

The question remains: Is FOX potentially lining up a replacement for slap-happy, usually-drunk Paula Abdul, or just looking to spice up the show with a fourth judge?

Love, who is in L.A. recording a solo album, declined to reveal any more specific details. But we can see her on the program. Drunk. And fighting with Paula Abdul. We're talking fist fight here, not just trading barbs.

A source says that the show is considering having Love replace that lush, but American Idol has stood by Abdul publicly thus far, and the show's reps could not be reached for comment.

Wonder how Love feels about Katharine McPhee's chest...
