Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Osbourne (born October 27, 1984) is the daughter of rock legend Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon Osbourne.

Fashion conscious Osbourne is part of a crop of young performers in the early 2000s who have revitalized the soft-core punk scene. Their combination of pseudo-punk outfits with an anti-authoritarian attitude (similar to Cyndi Lauper's persona in the 1980s) seems to reflect a movement out of the popularity of strictly pop music into an interest in rock and roll. Osbourne first rose to acclaim in the reality TV series about her famous family.

Her debut album was released in 2002 to moderate sales, fueled mostly by a cover version of the hit Madonna song "Papa Don't Preach." Critics mostly dismiss her as the flash-in-the-pan daughter of a superstar with no discernible talent whose popularity is fueled entirely by personality rather than legitimate talent.
