I have a confession: I’m a Kelly Osbourne apologist. She stole my heart in The Osbournes and I made my parents buy me the soundtrack from the show just so I could listen to her cover of “Papa Don’t Preach” on a loop in 7th grade. It was years before I realized the song was about abortion or that Madonna originally sang it. I was quite culturally backwards as a child.
Anyway, Ms. Osbourne is on the cover of July 2013’s Cosmopolitan magazine and I think she looks absolutely amazing. I love that she’s gone back to her purple hair because that brief foray into gray just looked like she dipped her head into dirty dishwater.
In the article, Osbourne opens up about her father’s recent relapse and discusses her own battle with addiction as well as what she hopes for in the future. She says she wants kids but she doesn’t “want a great big vagina.” Oh, Kelly.
She also discusses her recent scuffle with Lady Gaga and her fans. For those who don’t watch Fashion Police in Friday nights, Osbourne criticized something Gaga wore (as people on that show tend to do) which lead to a group of “little monsters” sending Kelly death threats via Twitter. Osbourne calls the pop star a hypocrite in the article for not standing up after this happened. She says, “I loved Lady Gaga. I totally believed in everything she stood for, until I realized she’s a great big hypocrite. Don’t say, ‘When you see bullying, intervene,’ while letting your fans send me death threats. If my fans did that, I would not stand for it. You can say whatever you want with your millions of monsters. I know the truth. You bells and whistles mean nothing to me. You’re feeding on the freaks and geeks to further your career? Do you really care about the gay community? Because if you did, you’d stand up for it more than you do.”
I wish I could say something like, “I hope they patch things up” but frankly, I’m glad someone is calling Gaga out. She needs to be taken down a peg.
