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.

Kelly Osbourne - Rocking the Music Biz

With her foul-mouth, punky style and ability to carry to tune, Kelly began expressing herself through music. She perfomed Madonna's Papa Don't Preach at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards, then released her debut album, Shut Up. 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 - Tough Times

In July 2002, Kelly's world was shaken when Sharon was diagnosed with colon cancer. In April 2003, Jack entered rehab for drug and alcohol addiction, and in December of that year, Ozzy was seriously injured when he crashed an all-terrain vehicle. Finally, on April 2, 2004, Kelly checked herself into rehab for an addiction to painkillers.

Kelly Osbourne - Happy and Healthy

Drug-free, Kelly now stars in the hit ABC drama life as we know it. Her character, Deborah, is an overweight girl with a mega-confident attitude. Kelly was hesitant about taking the role at first, but later realized it would be a big step in showing the world that big can be beautiful.

Kelly Osbourne - Did U Know?

  • Kelly has been feuding with Christina Aguilera for years. At the 2003 MTV Music Awards Europe, Ms. Aguilera threw darts at a photo of Kelly's face.
  • Kelly loves vintage cars and owns a 1958 Chevy that Ozzy gave her as an 18th Birthday present.
  • Kelly has a Brussels Griffon dog named Fanny.

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.'"
-Kelly Osbourne, on her decision to try out for life as we know it.

I watched Maze Runner today. I gotta say, I was pretty impressed with it. I have watched the Hunger Games as well (this IS the movie section, after all). At this point, I prefer the Maze Runner (movie-wise), but both books were amazing too!

Honestly, that's quite hard. I've watched both movies and loved both of them equally. Maybe Divergent a teeny bit more. Still, Hunger Games and Divergent are both trilogies, so there's plenty to look forward to, movie wise!
