Sharon Osbourne Pens Scathing Open Letter To Lady Gaga

Over the past few months, Kelly Osbourne has received a slew of vicious Twitter comments and threats from angry Lady Gaga supporters pissed off about the Fashion Police star’s insults toward their beloved Mother Monster. Saying the pop star looked pregnant didn’t exactly sit well with them, but the giant torrent of hate that’s come since didn’t exactly sit well with Osbourne either. So, she recently reached out to Gaga’s manager in private and asked if the singer could tell her fans to take it easy on the death threats. She decided not to. Instead, she went in a different direction, and now, the feud has kicked into a whole new level.
Speaking on her Little Monsters Blog, Gaga said Osbourne needs to look in the mirror and realize she makes people feel bad all the time.
”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 pokes fun at others for a living is astounding.”
Not surprisingly, the letter riled up Kelly’s outspoken mother Sharon Osbourne. She was the one who contacted Gaga’s manager initially to try and stop the death threats, and this week, she addressed the ongoing situation in an open letter of her own. You can read an excerpt of it below…
“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.”
I get where everyone involved is coming from here. Kelly has said numerous mean things about Gaga in the past. At one point, she even called her face ugly. If the pop star’s fans want to say mean things to Kelly, I don’t really have a problem with that, but there’s a mountain of difference between making fun of someone’s appearance and threatening physical harm.
Here’s to hoping these two can work this mess out sooner rather than later.
