Sure, if it wasn’t for MTV, the American public may never have heard of Kelly Osbourne. But that hasn’t stopped Sharon and Ozzy’s daughter from launching a broadside against the network.
Her beef: MTV is apparently not airing the video to her latest song, “Come Dig Me Out,” the wannabe rock star complains in an interview with the Detroit News.
“MTV makes me sick to my stomach,” the young star of “The Osbournes,” 18, said.
“Did you know they only play 35 videos a week? It’s so stupid. MTV used to be all about breaking new artists,” she continued. “Now, if you’re not in a rap group, if you’re not talking about ‘I (bleeped) the cutest girl in school,’ or if you’re not singing about skateboarding, you can’t get played.”
Since being released last November, when the Osbournes were still on a high (interest in the family has waned over the course of their show’s second season), her album, “Shut Up,” has sold only 134,000 copies in North America.
“I honestly don’t care if I sell any albums,” she told the News. “People don’t see me as an artist, they see me as a television star. And I don’t care. I don’t care if people take me serious as an artist.”
