Kelly Osbourne - The Famous Family
Kelly Osbourne didn't exactly have a conventional up-bringing. She grew up as the priviledged daughter of rocker Ozzy and his sweet yet outspoken manager wife, Sharon. She attended private schools in England and tagged-along to concerts around the world. The middle child, Kelly has an older sister, Aimee and younger brother, Jack. The family eventually moved to Beverly Hills, and in 2002, their lives were caught on tape in a little MTV show called The Osbournes.

Pretty soon, she was showing up everywhere, from magazine covers and talk shows to packed concerts. After she was dropped by her record label, Sony, Kelly bounced back with a new album featuring Changes, a duet with Ozzy.

Kelly Osbourne Says...
"I realized I could help people like this because the character isn't beautiful and isn't skinny but so cool and so different, and it could help girls in today's society realize that you don't have to look like a supermodel to be beautiful. That's when I was like, 'Ok, I'll audition for it.'"
