Sharon Osborne has taken the fight to Lady Gaga’s doorstep, calling her a ‘hypocritical attention-seeker’ for writing an open letter to blast her daughter, Kelly Osborne of E!’s Fashion Police. Gaga had written an open letter to Kelly and posted it on her official website, where she berated her for the way she attacks celebrities’ dressing on her Fashion Police show.
In the open letter, Gaga had called Kelly a ‘bully’ whose work on Fashion Police is based on ‘criticism, judgment, and rating people’s beauty against one another,’ stressing that she knows she is seen as a ‘wild child,’ but in reality she is a ‘woman that deeply cares for humanity.’
But in her response, Sharon accused Gaga of encouraging her ‘little monsters’ to harass Kelly, asking her why she was so desperate to make the matter public to her 32 million fans via an open letter. For this, she called Gaga a ‘bully’, ‘publicity-seeking hypocrite’ whose letter is full of contradictions and an ‘attention seeker.’
Sharon, in the letter, warned Gaga to stop her ‘little monsters’ from sending death threats to her daughter with immediate effect.
Below is the full letter of Sharon Osbourne to Lady Gaga:
I am responding to your open letter to my daughter Kelly and I’m perplexed as to why you would go public with an open letter. Regarding this current situation; Kelly didn’t contact you, I was the one that contacted your manager today and the email is attached below for your reference.
I reached out to him as Kelly’s manager and mother to ask him if you could address your “little monster” fans and stop them from writing libelous, slanderous and vile comments about my family including death threats to Kelly.
Your open letter is hypocritical and full of contradictions. And as your mother Cynthia supports you, I support my daughter Kelly. I must say your opinions on what is politically correct and acceptable totally differ from mine, but that is what makes the world so interesting… we are all different. How sweet that you have empathy for my daughter as you feel that she has taken a less passionate path in life. You say her work on E! with the Fashion Police is “rooted in criticism, judgment, and rating people’s beauty against one another.” Welcome to the real world.
Example, when I saw you wear a dress made out of raw meat, I was sickened. When I see you wearing fur and you use it as a fashion statement, that defenseless animals have been killed so you can get your picture in the press is abhorrent to me. Shouldn’t you be teaching your “little monster” fans to respect animals and life? I don’t feel I have to justify Kelly’s choices in life to you.
By your actions to Kelly right now, you have shown me that you are nothing more than a publicly seeking hypocrite and an attention seeker. You know it would have been much more dignified of you to do this privately. I am calling you a bully because you have 32 million followers hanging on your every word and you are criticizing Kelly in your open letter. Are you so desperate that you needed to make this public?
You state, “Everyday, through my music and public voice I choose to be positive and work towards a kinder and braver world with our community of followers.” Well this obviously is not translating well to your fans as a large portion of them, not only have been vile to Kelly but also other celebrities such as Madonna, Adele and Rihanna. “You say a kinder, braver world” I don’t know what world you live in but supporting disgraceful fan comments doesn’t fall under the words “kinder and braver” it comes under the heading of bullsh*t.
In closing, stop wearing fur, stop looking for publicity and stop using your fans to belittle not just Kelly but an endless stream of celebrities. A word from you would stop all this hideous, negative and vile threats from your “little monsters.” Let me know if you want to continue this debate. I’m an open playing field for you my darling.
We are waiting for the next showdown…stay tuned!
