Heavy metal icon Ozzy Osbourne has joined the celebrity Taylor Swift fan club after becoming captivated by her beauty and talent during a run-in in Los Angeles over the weekend (28-29Sep13). The Black Sabbath frontman was shopping with his wife Sharon on Sunday (29Sep13) when they bumped into the 23-year-old country superstar and struck up a conversation.
Sharon reveals it was Ozzy's first time meeting Swift and he was instantly enamoured with her, even comparing the singer to legendary Hollywood stars Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn.
Explaining the meeting on her U.S. daytime show The Talk on Tuesday (01Oct13), Sharon Osbourne said, "My husband doesn't say anything about anyone - he knows who Taylor Swift is, he knows her music, but he's never met her before, and he was so blown away with her beauty and the aura that she projects, he said to me, 'I have finally met somebody that I can say is a true superstar.' He said, 'She reminds me of Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn.' He called her the most magnificent young girl he's met in his lifetime. He was so blown away by her."
Sharon Osbourne has talked her daughter Kelly out of plans to sue a U.S. magazine following new reports suggesting they have fallen out over the singer-turned-TV personality's upcoming wedding plans. Sources tell the new issue of Star magazine that Sharon has turned into a bride-to-be's worst nightmare after taking over planning for Kelly's big day, adding she is refusing to accommodate her daughter's requests as she prepares to wed vegan chef Matthew Mosshart at the family's U.K. home next summer (14).
The insiders claim the mother and daughter duo have been fighting over everything from the location of the wedding to the food served at the reception, with a source telling the publication, "Kelly is at her wit's end with her mother. She's feuding with Sharon over the tiniest details of her wedding!"
Kelly Osbourne was quick to blast the allegations on her Twitter.com blog on Wednesday morning (11Sep13), writing, "WTF (what the f**k) is wrong with people why would I ever been at war with my own mother? Some publications really must be having a slow week!!!!"
Sharon also addressed the claims on her U.S. daytime show The Talk on Wednesday (11Sep13), dismissing the story as "ridiculous".
The rock matriarch also revealed that her daughter was eager to take legal action against Star, but she advised her otherwise.
She said, "(The story) is that much rubbish I can use it to pick up the dog crap... Kelly's getting married exactly where she wants to get married, and the food is the food that Kelly wants and that's it. Just because I'm arranging it, she has an even busier life than I do, so I can work with the caterer, I can work with the party planner, it cuts that away from her.
"It's just ridiculous. And Kelly called me this morning, she's in New York, and she said, 'Mummy, I'm suing!' I'm like, 'Oh, don't waste you're time or your money, forget it!'"
Caring Kelly Osbourne spent four months sleeping on a floor beside her dad Ozzy's bed after the rocker cheated death in a quad bike accident. The Black Sabbath frontman was lucky to escape alive when he crashed the vehicle while riding it around the grounds of his U.K. home in 2003, breaking eight ribs, his collar bone, and a bone in his neck.
Osbourne spent months recuperating from his injuries, and daughter Kelly - who nursed her mother Sharon through a cancer battle the previous year (02) - has revealed she was her father's full-time carer as he was temporarily paralysed from the waist down.
She even joined him in the shower by making sure they both wore swimsuits to preserve their modesty.
Kelly tells Cosmopolitan magazine, "He couldn't move from the neck down and was basically a paraplegic, so I slept on the floor by the side of his bed for four months. I brushed his teeth and washed his clothes, and every day we'd put on our swimsuits and I'd shower him. Not many people can say they've wiped their mother and father's a**es more than they've wiped their own."
Sharon Osbourne once locked her daughter Kelly in a padded cell in a desperate bid to scare her into giving up drugs. The 28-year-old reality TV star battled drug addiction for many years and checked into rehab seven times in an attempt to curb her behaviour.
Kelly admits her parents, Sharon and Ozzy, went to extreme lengths to stop her drug taking, but it wasn't until her mother was diagnosed with cancer that she decided to turn her life around.
She tells Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine, "I've been to rehab seven times and to two mental institutions. My mum even had me put in a padded cell once to scare me, but like a brat I just sat it out until she said, 'Well, that's not going to work.'
"But what I've learnt is that no amount of therapy or medication is going to work unless you want it to. Until you want to be a good person, you will never be one. What changed for me was looking around and seeing that nobody liked me or wanted to work with me...
"(When my mother was diagnosed with cancer) I was faced with the choice of a career or spending what could have been the last days of my mother's life with her. I said, 'F**k you, career, hello, Mother'. I became my mum's nurse 24/7. I thought I was going to lose her - it was awful."
Sharon, 60, won her battle against colon cancer in 2003.
Singer-turned-TV personality Kelly Osbourne will wed her fiance Matthew Mosshart in her native U.K. next summer (14). The 28-year-old daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne confirmed she is engaged to the vegan chef last week (ends19Jul13), but revealed he had actually popped the question during a romantic New Year's Eve (31Dec12) moment on vacation in Anguilla.
Now Kelly's mother, Sharon, has spilled a few details about the happy couple's big plans.
During Monday's (22Jul13) episode of her U.S. daytime show The Talk, she said, "My daughter Kelly is now officially engaged and she's planning a summer wedding next year at our home in England."
The bride-to-be has also given fans a peek at her custom-made Tiffany engagement ring by taking to her Instagram.com blog on Saturday (20Jul13) to show off the new sparkler.
Kelly Osbourne has been banned from driving following her seizure earlier this year (13). Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne's daughter suffered a health scare while filming U.S. TV series Fashion Police in March (13) and spent several days in a Los Angeles hospital while doctors attempted to discover what caused her seizure.
Osbourne has now revealed she is taking precautionary medication, and has been told she cannot sit behind the wheel of a car in case she suffers a relapse.
She tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "I don't know if I'm epileptic or not - it's a waiting game right now. It's scary and confusing. I'm hoping it was just a stress-induced seizure, but I have to be on anti-seizure medication for a year and I can't drive in case I have another episode.
"Not knowing what caused it is the worst thing. There's a chance it won't happen again and I hope it doesn't, though I don't remember it."
Kelly Osbourne kept her engagement secret for more than six months after her long-term boyfriend Matthew Mosshart proposed over the New Year holiday. The pop star-turned-TV personality and Mosshart revealed their news in this week's (begs15Jul13) issue of Britain's Hello! magazine, and in the accompanying interview, they admitted they have been engaged since the start of 2013.
The vegan pastry chef whisked his girlfriend to Anguilla for New Year's Eve (31Dec12), and popped the question in the early hours of New Year's Day (01Jan13).
Mosshart says, "At 2am, when the festivities had wound down a little, I tried to pull her away from everyone. I got down on one knee... we were on a balcony that overlooks the ocean. It was just beautiful."
Osbourne, who had previously told her partner it was her dream to be proposed to in Anguilla on New Year's Eve, adds, "I started to cry."
The couple has already started planning the ceremony for next year (14), with Osbourne admitting she wants to marry at her childhood home in England and recycle the material from her mother Sharon's wedding dress for her own gown.
She adds, "I want to marry in the house I grew up in... we don't want to rush it, especially as my brother Jack got married last October. I also want to wait until my niece Pearl, who is 15 months, can walk down the aisle as ring bearer.
"We are taking the lace from my mum's wedding dress and making mine with it. It's something she's said she'd like me to do since I was a baby."
"That was a bit of BS (bulls**t), that whole thing about my mum moving out. My mum never moved out, she just moved into the new house that they got together and my dad went on tour. The media made that part up. Do you want to speak to your husband after having a 35-year-old argument, again?" Kelly Osbourne insists her father Ozzy and mum Sharon were never officially living apart after the rocker confessed to suffering a drug and alcohol relapse in April (13), days before kicking off a world tour with Black Sabbath.
