A source tells The People that Kelly Osbourne was spotted cuddling up to McFly singer Danny Jones at London’s Umbaba club on Friday. “They weren’t going to be distracted by anything,” the source said. A McFly spokesman responded: “They’ve been out before. I don’t know if he’s seeing anyone right now.”
ContactMusic.com reports that Kelly Osbourne insists several of Hollywood’s “blonde bombshells” are heavy drug users. “I just want to let people know that if you think any of these blonde bombshells aren’t drug addicts, trust me, they are, because I’ve done drugs with them,” Osbourne revealed. “I’m not going to name names because that’s not fair, but we all are. I think it’s part of being young, being famous, being insecure with what’s happening to you, and just wanting to be accepted by the people you hang out with.”
FemaleFirst.co.uk reports that Kelly Osbourne believes her drug problems stem from being branded a “fat immigrant” by her classmates. “I moved from the countryside in England to Beverly Hills when I was 12, and I did not have friends,” Osbourne explained. “I mean, I would sit in class, and a kid would whisper in my ear, ‘Go back to England, you fu**ing fat immigrant,’ and I’d be like, ‘Mom, get me out of here!’ And then an older friend of our family thought it would be funny to take me and my brother to clubs. I think I was 13 when I went to my first one. I got drunk and was like, ‘This is so fun – people like me, and they’re not making fun of me.'”

Polly Vernon of The Observer writes, “Skank chic started with Hollywood hot properties Lindsay Lohan and Brittany Murphy; with Christina Aguilera’s ‘Dirrty’ video; with Kelly Osbourne and rioting punk princess Avril Lavigne – all raw-edged teen queens with a shared tendency to veer fabulously off the rails. These girls are the unapologetically unwashed response to the fresh-faced, perfectly manicured tradition of teen sensations like Hilary Duff and Jessica Simpson. The skank chic movement gained pace with the desperately sexy Sin City working girls who stole the show in the big screen adaptation of the cult graphic novel.” Read more.
Benji Madden of Good Charlotte phoned in to chat with Jackie & Bender of KISS 106.1 FM in Seattle to promote their appearance on the station’s BFD 2005 concert. They talked how the girls on the show have been trying to IM Benji but he ignores them because he’s too busy looking at porn, the band’s current 2-week break, his car collection, his weekly visits to Home Depot, feeling lucky how far he’s gone since working at Target, throwing up on stage, the rumor he was dating Kelly Osbourne — she’s actually dating his brother Josh, collaborating with Hilary Duff on her new album, and more. Kiss1061.com has since removed the audio.
