Osbourne Receives Advice on Being Famous
2 hours, 35 minutes ago
NEW YORK - For Kelly Osbourne, father really does know best — especially when it comes to living in the spotlight.
"He (said) the stage can be the loneliest place in the world," the daughter of heavy metal legend Ozzy Osbourne told AP Radio. She didn't elaborate on its meaning.
The only thing more obscure than his words are the places where he offers such pearls of wisdom.
"We have sit-down talks ... in the most random places. We went in the bathroom, and I sat on the floor for three hours while he was talking to me. By the end of it, I was falling asleep."
Osbourne says her dad means well, but he need not worry. For her, "being famous ... is just a small part of my life."
She says adjusting to fame is a weird experience. "To this day, I walk in restaurants and wonder why everyone is staring at me — then I go 'Oh,'" she said. "It's weird, but I'm used to it."
That's no surprise, with their hit MTV series "The Osbournes" turning the clan into household names. One benefit of such exposure has been the positive boost of her father's image.
"My whole life, people have always said stuff like my Dad is this and that — he's evil, satanic and bites the heads off animals," Osbourne said. "When people get to see that he's a kind, loving person who deserves everything he has and has worked (hard) his entire life, he gets the gratification he deserves."
