Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Michelle Lee Osbourne[1][2] (born 27 October 1984)[1] is an English fashion designer, singer and actress, best known for being the daughter ofOzzy and Sharon Osbourne. She was thrust into the limelight after appearing on the reality series The Osbournes with her family, for which they won a 2002 Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality Program. She has also appeared on Dancing with the Stars,[3] in which she and professional dance partnerLouis van Amstel took third place, and has made forays into music, acting, theatre, writing, columnist and broadcast presenting.

Life and career[]

Early life[]

Osbourne was born in Westminster, London.[2][4] She has an elder sister, Aimee, and a younger brother, Jack. From Ozzy's first marriage, she also has two half-siblings: Jessica Hobbs and Louis John Osbourne.[5] She had an unofficially "adopted" brother, Robert Marcato, whom Sharon and Ozzy took in after Marcato's mother died. Kelly grew up travelling with her father as he went on tour, and lived in more than 20 homes between the UK and the US.[6]

2002-2005: The Osbournes and Shut Up[]

Osbourne and the rest of her immediate family (without Aimee) were thrust into the international spotlight with the MTV reality show The Osbournes, which aired from 2002 to 2005. The series chronicled their day-to-day life, and the show became a hit for its portrayal of a dysfunctional, though close-knit family in which metal music, profanity and other harshness were a daily part of life. Kelly, the middle child, emerged (according to Rolling Stone) as "a wickedly funny, brutally honest, pint-size, potty-mouthed spitfire." The series started when she was seventeen, and ended when she was twenty. Kelly said in an interview for The Osbournes DVD that the crew were only actually supposed to be there for a few weeks but ended up staying for a few months and that the constant cameras focusing on her and her family was stressful.[7] In 2002, during the second season of The Osbournes, Kelly dated the Used lead singer Bert McCracken.

Both she and the Osbourne family have been parodied in Channel 4 comedy, Bo' Selecta in which the rubber-masked Kelly, played by Leigh Francis, has her own show and is always beingcensored for swearing with bleeps.

After her appearance on the reality show, Osbourne quickly began to be noted for her varied and trendy style among fashion commentators like Steven Cojocaru[8][9] In 2004, Osbourne launched her own fashion line, Stiletto Killers,[10] with her friend and former sponsor, Ali Barone. Stiletto Killers was a rock-inspired line of teesknickershoodies and sweatpants designed by Osbourne and Barone, emblazoned with cartoonish designs and punk rock phrases. There was also a more sophisticated couture branch, the SK Collection. Stiletto Killers closed in April 2006.

Her debut album, Shut Up, was released by Epic Records in 2002 to moderate American sales, but good European sales. The lead single, a cover of Madonna's "Papa Don't Preach", debuted with Houston rock band Pure Rubbish at the 2002 MTV Film Awards.[11] The album, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart, was met with mixed critical reviews and, by May 2003, Osbourne was dropped from Epic Records. By autumn she was on the Sanctuary label, later recording a duet of "Changes" (a Black Sabbath song) with her father. The duet hit No. 1 on the UK charts. "Changes" was one of a few tracks to have fallen down the charts (from 1–3) whilst selling more copies than the week it reached number 1. Osbourne was the first artist to top all three of the Billboard charts dance surveys in the same week with the "Chris Cox Club Remix" of "One Word".[12] Her second album Sleeping in the Nothing was not without controversy, due to its reportedly heavily-altered album cover, in which Osbourne appeared slimmer,[13] despite her previous assertions of being happy with her size.[citation needed]

Osbourne made her debut as an actress with a starring role on 7 October 2004 on the ABC high school teenage drama Life As We Know It, where she played the supporting role of Deborah Beatrice Tynan. During an interview in late 2005, Osbourne denied reports she was ending her music career, saying: "I don't know where the quit rumours came from – I've just recorded a version of 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun' with Cyndi Lauper."[14]

On 2 April 2004, Osbourne entered the Malibu rehab facility Promises after admitting to her family that she was addicted to painkillers.[15] Over a year later, on 2 June, she checked into Las Encinas Hospital, a drug treatment centre in Pasadena, California, after a relapse.[16] She entered another drug treatment facility in January 2009;[17] she stayed for a month and later acknowledged that she had suffered a relapse of her addiction to painkillers.[18] After 30 days, she was released; she has been quoted as saying that this was the first time she really thought rehab had helped her.[19]

2006-2009: Acting and hosting duties[]

In spring 2006, Osbourne modeled for Heatherette in a catwalk show. In June, she played the role of Wendy from Peter Pan in The Queen's Handbag and provided her voice for the animated filmLive Freaky Die Freaky. Later that year, she became the face of the high street chain Accessorize. In July 2007, Osbourne portrayed the role of prison matron Mama Morton in the musical dramaChicago[20] for seven weeks at the Cambridge Theatre.[21] Osbourne co-hosted the 2006 edition of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me out of Here! Now, a spin-off show of the main ITV1 programme. She hosted alongside Jeff Brazier in Australia, and Mark Durden-Smith in the London studio. Her one-off gigs include the 2002 MTV Film AwardsTop of the Pops Saturday, MTV's Isle of MTVMTV UK and Ireland's red carpet coverage of the 2003 MTV Europe Music AwardsPopworldThe Sunday Night Project, the 2005 MTV Australia Video Music Awards and Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show. In spring 2006, Osbourne was one of the judges on Making Your Mind Up. In September 2006, at the Electric Picnic festival in Ireland, Osbourne and her boyfriend, Matty Derham of the band Fields, held a wedding ceremony. Her representative denied that the ceremony was legally binding, because it did not meet Irish legal requirements, as in Ireland, at the time, a couple couldn't get married in an outdoor venue.[22] She later went on to date Matt Emerson, drummer from rock band Trash Fashion.[23]

In January 2007, Osbourne began presenting Project Catwalk for Sky1. In autumn 2007, Osbourne signed to BBC Radio 1 to host the Sunday night show, Radio 1's The Surgery, and on 7 October 2007 she went on air for the first time with the issue of self-harm. She was scheduled to return to the show in early 2009 and whilst she was away, Aled Haydn Jones from The Chris Moyles Showpresented the show. Aled has now been confirmed as a full-time presenter. In spring 2008, she began contributing a teenage advice column to the tabloid newspaper the Sun, "Kelly Confidential", where she is billed as "the teen trouble shooter". In 2008 she featured in the short musical film The Town that Boars Me by photographer Ben Charles Edwards. The film also features Sadie Frost, Jodie Harsh, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Zandra Rhodes amongst others. The film is set to debut in late summer at the Portobello Film Festival. In 2009 she appeared in an episode of Hotel Babylon, a British TV show aired on BBC One. She played Jo, a character very similar to herself. In August 2010, Osbourne began filming on new comedy "Should've Been Romeo," Her first major role in Hollywood, She plays "Nicole" a fun loving groupie. The film is due for release in the U.S. on 7 April 2011.

Filming began in December 2010 and is set for a 5 October 2012 release.[24][25]

On 19 January 2009, Osbourne was arrested for assault after allegedly slapping Daily Mirror columnist Zoe Griffin at a club in August 2008 after Griffin wrote a story that mocked Osbourne's then-boyfriend Luke Worrall.[26] In March 2009, Osbourne was engaged to model Luke Worrall.[27] In July 2010, she split from him[28] after he had an affair with model Elle Schneider.[29][30][31] Osbourne presented ITV2's coverage of the National Television Awardswith her brother Jack, and a documentary on Japanese pop culture called Kelly Osbourne: Turning Japanese for the same channel.[32] Osbourne has presented on The Surgery with Kelly Osbourne on BBC Radio 1.
