Contributed by StilettoSadist: Us Weekly reports that Kelly Osbourne is desperate to strike up a friendship with Madonna but the icon has yet to respond to her efforts. Kelly is trying to meet Madonna to thank her in person for letting her cover the ‘80s classic ‘Papa Don’t Preach’. The 19-year-old has often moaned to pals that Madonna has never acknowledged the many letters and flower bouquets she sent to show her gratitude. A friend says, “Kelly was furious that Madonna did not make an effort to contact her back.” While Britney Spears enjoys a close friendship with the superstar, the friend adds that Osbourne is upset that Madonna won’t even say hello to her when they see each other at awards shows and other events.
