Courtney Love's Character Reference for New Apartment: Bono!?!

In December, Courtney Love was evicted from her $27,000/month townhouse for setting fires to the apartment (and changing the decor), and now it looks like she's found a great spot in a nearby neighborhood. The landlords apparently didn't even require a credit check before she moved in (we think Courtney Love is good for it too with that Nirvana money), but they needed a character reference. That's right: Courtney Love needed someone to vouch for her character.

Who on earth could possibly vouch for Courtney Love as a tenant? As a person? Bono

Courtney Love says that she gave her prospective landlords several character reference letters, and, according to Love, "they chose Bono. And he wrote me a paragraph." We think a paragraph is pretty darn short for a character reference letter. For example, look at this paragraph. If everything appealing about Love as a tenant could be squeezed into this paragraph-length paragraph, would you have her move in?
