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.”
