Kelly‘s spokeswoman confirmed: “Kelly Osbourne fainted on the set of ‘E!’s Fashion Police‘ today. She was taken to a local hospital for further testing and is awake, alert and in stable condition. She will be staying overnight for observation as a precautionary measure. There are no further details at this time.”
Earlier I posted about Lady Gaga‘s open letter to Kelly Osbourne, and now I have the Osbourne family’s responses. Kelly has since tweeted: “I hope you guys realize that I don’t care about any of this bullshit! I know who I am I don’t need anyone to tell me!… love to all.”
Mother Sharon Osbourne has defended her daughter in another letter: “Ms. Gaga, I am responding to your open letter to my daughter Kelly, and I am perplexed as to why you would go public with an open letter. Regarding this current situation; Kelly didn’t contact you, I was the one that contacted your manager today and the email is attached below for your reference. I reached out to him as Kelly’s manager and mother to ask him if you could address your “little monster” fans and stop them from writing libelous, slanderous and vile comments about my family, including death threats to Kelly. Your open letter is hypocritical and full of contradictions. And as your mother Cynthia supports you, I support my daughter Kelly.”
“I must say your opinions on what is politically correct and acceptable totally differ from mine, but that is what makes the world so interesting…we are all different. How sweet that you have empathy for my daughter, as you feel that she has taken a less passionate path in life. You say her work on ‘E!‘ with the ‘Fashion Police‘ is “rooted in criticism, judgment, and rating people’s beauty against one another.” Welcome to the real world. Example, when I saw you wear a dress made out of raw meat, I was sickened. When I see you wearing fur, and using it as a fashion statement, the fact that defenseless animals have been killed so you can get your picture in the press is abhorrent to me. Shouldn’t you be teaching your “little monster” fans to respect animals and life? I don’t feel I have to justify Kelly’s choices in life to you. By your actions to Kelly right now, you have shown me that you are nothing more than a publicly seeking hypocrite and an attention seeker. You know it would have been much more dignified of you to do this privately. I am calling you a bully because you have 32 million followers hanging on your every word and you are criticizing Kelly in your open letter. Are you so desperate that you needed to make this public?”
“You state “Everyday, through my music and public voice I choose to be positive and work towards a kinder and braver world with our community of followers.” Well this obviously is not translating well to your fans, as a large portion of them have not only been vile to Kelly, but also other celebrities such as Madonna, Adele and Rihanna. “You say a kinder, braver world” I don’t know what world you live in, but supporting disgraceful fan comments doesn’t fall under the words “kinder and braver.” It comes under the heading of bullshit. In closing, stop wearing fur, stop looking for publicity, and stop using your fans to belittle not just Kelly but an endless stream of celebrities. A word from you would stop all the hideous, negative and vile threats from your “little monsters.” Let me know if you want to continue this debate. I’m an open playing field for you my darling. Sincerely, Sharon Osbourne.” Wow…who’s team are you on?
Lady Gaga posted quite a controversial, yet honest, open letter to ‘Fashion Police‘ presenter Kelly Osbourne on her ‘LittleMonsters.com‘ blog yesterday. The piece, which discussed Kelly‘s criticism of other peoples image, read:
“Dear Kelly, While I wish you had reached out to me personally, as the head of the ‘Born This Way‘ foundation with my mother Cynthia we would like to respond. Everyday, through my music and public voice I choose to be positive and work towards a kinder and braver world with our community of followers. I encourage them to ignore criticism, stand up to bullies, know their own value and see that we are all the same and no one person is worth more than another. I know I’m perceived as a wild child, but in reality I am woman that deeply cares for humanity. I have empathy for you Kelly, but I feel it culturally important to note that you have chosen a less compassionate path. Your work on ‘E!‘ with the ‘Fashion Police‘ is rooted in criticism, judgment, and rating people’s beauty against one another. “Appearance” is the most used reason for bullying in the world. Your show breeds negativity, and over the years has even become comedic in nature. It glorifies you and Joan Rivers pointing in the camera, laughing, and making jokes about artists and celebrities as if we are zoo animals.”
“What about your body revolution? It used to make me truly sad when I would hear people talk about your weight when you were younger, as I was bullied too. To see you blossoming into a beautiful slender woman who makes fun of others for a living is astounding. Why not help others? Why not defend others who are bullied for their image and share your story?”
“I am pointing this out not to take a crack at your character, as we’ve met before and you’re lovely. However, I urge you to take responsibility and accountability for the example that you are setting for young people. They look up to you because you are famous, and if you treat others that way on TV, many adolescents at home on Twitter assume your actions are acceptable: well if she does it, why can’t I? I cannot control my fans, and I discourage them from any negativity and violence, because that is wrong and hurtful — and I do feel baldy that your feelings were hurt. However, we can all do our part in the media to set a standard of respect, compassion, and love. I wish for you to be treated with the kindness and respect that everyone deserves. While some of my fans have learning to do, most of them share the same values as I, and it’s what bonds us together. And that bond is strong. PS. And to any media or celebrities that happen to find this letter in their path, I hope you, too, consider the power of your voices. Lets work together and make 2013 a year of unity. Sincerely, Gaga and Cynthia.”
No direct response from Kelly yet, although she has since tweeted about some guests on her show: “If you have not already fallen in love with
@TheSaturdays you will after seeing them on this week’s @e_FashionPolice!”
Kelly Osbourne‘s ‘E! Fashion Police‘ colleague Joan Rivers would probably wet herself if she heard about this…the fashionista had a bit of a fake tan disaster earlier this week when a bottle of a self-tanning product leaked in her luggage, spoiling her white silk shorts.
Kelly tweeted a photo of the “shitty shorts”, and wrote: “My self tanner exploded in my suitcase I’m too embarrassed to take them to the dry-cleaners because it looks like I shit myself #ShitShorts.” How embarrassing!
Jack Osbourne has been diagnosed with a condition called multiple sclerosis. The sad news comes just 2 weeks after the arrival of baby Pearl Clementine with his fiancée Lisa Stelly. He told ‘People’ magazine: “I was just angry and frustrated and kept thinking, ‘Why now?’ I’ve got a family and that’s what’s supposed to be the most important thing.”
It could potentially affect his vision and balance going forward, as it affects the nervous system and impairs muscle control. It is not currently known what stage his illness has reached yet. Meanwhile, supportive sister Kelly has written on Twitter: “Please support my brother in not only his bravery but honesty! I love you so much Jack & I’m so proud of you!”
She may have gone home empty handed, but you can guarantee that every other woman stood on the red carpet on Sunday night wanted to be Katy Perry. Her powder blue ‘Ellie Saab‘ floor-length gown looked fabulous on her tanned skin and with a bright blue quiff.
Taylor Swift stuck to her usual successful formula of girly high-neckline gowns. The ‘Zuhair Murad‘ embellished number had dragon embroidery, and was worn with a sleek high bun. I would love to see her wear a really vampish dress next time, or just do something to shock people!
Country beauty Carrie Underwood literally sparkled her way along the red carpet in a white ‘Gomez-Gracia‘ gown.
One surprise addition to the guest list was socialite Paris Hilton, who wore an angelic white and gold gown from ‘Basil Soda‘. All she needed to complete her outfit was a fluffy white halo!
Kelly Osbourne let her gold sequinned ‘Tony Ward‘ gown clash with her freshly-dyed lilac locks.
Jessie J wore a scale-effect ‘Julien MacDonald‘ gown with a mermaid silhouette.
Rihanna toned down her usually crazy attire for a subtle but sexy LBD from ‘Giorgio Armani‘.
The 38th ‘People’s Choice Awards’ took place at the ‘Nokia Theatre‘ in LA on January 11. This year “The Big Bang Theory” actress Kaley Cuoco hosted this year’s show for the first of award season’s many big ceremonies.
Despite not being able to attend the awards show due to her divorce, Katy Perry swept the board, taking home 5 trophies for Favourite Female Artist, Tour Headliner, Song Of The Year for ‘ET’, Music Video for ‘Last Friday Night’ and TV Guest Star for ‘How I Met Your Mother’.
Lea Michele and Emma Stone were other young winners; Emma was rewarded with a standing ovation from the crowd as she went to collect her award.”I moved to LA eight years ago this week with my mum, who’s right there. It is so insane to be standing up here right now. It is hard to describe to you,” she told the audience.
Other stars that were a no-show include Johnny Depp, Ryan Reynolds, Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian.
Robert Pattinson accepted an award (minus about half of his usual hair) for Favourite Movie Drama, ‘Water For Elephants.’
Demi Lovato had a quick outfit change, and took to the stage in a bright red lace dress for her performance of ‘Give Your Heart A Break‘.
Miley Cyrus was accompanied by boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, and spent the majority of the evening with Sharon & Kelly Osbourne (who has just dyed her hair a brave shade of silver/ grey).
