Outspoken and outlandish rocker-turned-actress Courtney Love is the music star fans would like most to follow through a reality television series similar to "The Osbournes," according to a Billboard.com poll. Of 10,570 respondents, Love netted 25% of the tally, far out distancing her closest competitor, pop star Pink, who pulled in 14% of the vote.
Rapper-turned-actor Eminem placed third in the standings with 13%, followed by rap impresario Sean "P. Diddy" Combs with 11%, and international superstar Madonna with 10%. Next up was Michael Jackson, who garnered 6% of the tally, with country veteran Dolly Parton trailing behind with a 4% share. Country couple Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Irish rock act U2, shock rock icon Marilyn Manson, and Latin star Shakira tied with 3%.
Trailing further behind were rapper Jay-Z and Kiss bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons, who were each chosen by 2% of the voters. Bringing up the rear were music veterans Elton John and Liza Minnelli; John pulled in 1%, while Minnelli's take wasn't enough to move her count off of 0%.
Of those listed in the poll, only Combs and Minnelli have such series in development. As previously reported, Combs' role in MTV's "Making the Band II" will focus on the creation of an R&B/hip-hop group under his leadership, not on his personal life. VH1's "Liza & David," meanwhile, will find Minnelli and new husband David Gest entertaining celebrity pals with performance and conversation in their New York penthouse.
