Get Real Detroit caught up with Kelly Osbourne, who is on the cover of their current issue.
Kelly was asked her thoughts on Avril Lavigne and responded, “Do you know what? I like her as a person, she’s a friend of mine, but my honest opinion is she doesn’t really have any communication with kids her age. She’s been doing this since she was 16, she doesn’t live at home, she suddenly went from living in a 3,000-people-population town to being the most famous 18-year-old girl in the world. And that’s gotta be hard, and not having anyone around to talk to; not being able to have a life. It’s something you want to do and it’s your passion, but there are so many other things you want to do but you can’t. I really do feel for her.”
Asked if Avril is handling her fame well, Kelly says, “Sometimes I think she does and sometimes I think she says stuff that she shouldn’t, but everyone does –– and I know that more than anyone.”
People Don’t Have A Right To Judge Kelly Osbourne
Kelly Osbourne tells Jim Derogatis of the Chicago Sun-Times she has something to say to her critics, especially those who will now have the chance to critique her music. “People have the right to have their opinion on my performance, but they don’t have the right to have an opinion on me as a person because they don’t know me,” Kelly says. “If they know me, that’s great. But opinions are not the same as observations for judging character. And people don’t really know me.”
Kelly Osbourne Doesn’t Care If People Take Her Seriously
Though received warmly by critics, Kelly Osbourne’s debut ‘Shut Up’ has sold a scant 134,000 copies to date. But Ozzy’s daughter says she couldn’t care less. “I honestly don’t care if I sell any albums,” she tells Adam Graham of the Detroit News, convincingly. “People don’t see me as an artist, they see me as a television star. And I don’t care. I don’t care if people take me serious as an artist.”
