Kelly Osbourne Serves Honey For Kylie, Lemon For Christina

The Sun spoke with Kelly Osbourne where the subject of her intense rivalry with Christina Aguilera was brought up. “I don’t even like talking about that woman,” the 20-year-old singer said. “I don’t go to kind of places that people like her hang out so I never see her. We’ve got different lifestyles. Where is she anyway? It’s like she’s disappeared!”

But she wasn’t limited to put downs, crediting musical influences which have shaped her new album. “When I was a kid, all I listened to was Cyndi Lauper, Madonna, Blondie and Human League,” she said. “And I loved Kylie Minogue. I feel so much for her at the moment. As my mum knows, there’s nothing worse than finding out you’ve got cancer. But I think the word cancer is a lot scarier than it actually is. It’s a tough battle but Kylie’s a strong little woman. She looks like she could kick my ass so I reckon she’ll fight through it.”

The Girl Who Cried Wolf

PopJustice slammed Kelly Osbourne for her recent rant against former record label Sony, which the daughter of Ozzy has been blaming for her musical shift on her sophomore album.

Electrogogo? Computer Blue? No. In the week that you release ‘One Word’, you announce that your favorite London club is The Barfly. Is it any wonder people find you so utterly unconvincing?

Every single step of the way, my mom has been there, and I don’t think I could ask for anything more.

All these young women receive a lot of flack, they’re called manufactured pop. A lot of people though can be quick to defend them, which is no surprise considering their massive fan base. I used to be one of the people that would defend their legitimacy, and insist they weren’t fake manufactured pop but not anymore.
