Sharon Osbourne: Justin Bieber “Doesn’t Realize He’s White and Not Black”
Sharon Osbourne sounds off about a range of hot-button issues in a candid new interview with The Daily Beast, weighing in on everything from Justin Bieber and Anthony Weiner to rumors of an impending divorce from husband Ozzy Osbourne.
Asked about Weiner’s latest sexting scandal, “The Talk” co-host calls the aspiring mayor “fabulously insane” and “out of his f**king mind.”
“I’d like to slap him,” says Osbourne, noting, “You’re a grown man with a great education, and you think, in this day and age, you can send pictures of your penis over the Internet and not get caught?”
The TV personality similarly doesn’t hold back when it comes to Bieber, whom she said last fall won’t “stand the test of time.”
“I feel really bad for him. There’s this little kid with a huge dream, he’s cute, girls love him, and he wants to be a mean boy, and he’s about as mean as a f**kin’ kitten, and he’s trying to act out,” says Osbourne. “It’s like pissing in a bucket. It’s like, ‘Oh, we’re the bad boys!’ F**k off! You don’t know what bad is.”
She continues, “And I think that he’s lost, I really do. I think he doesn’t realize he’s white and not black, that’s a huge problem. And, at the point he’s at in his career, it’s so dangerous because we’ve seen it all before a million times. Where do you go when you’re a child entertainer and then you want to transition to be a man? Very few make it.”
And what about Kanye West?
“I have no time for him. He bores me. I said it on the show, he’s an average-looking man with an average talent, but he’s a great salesman. He should sell cars because they would f**kin’ fly out the door,” she says, adding, “He’s his No. 1 fan.”
Osbourne isn’t just full of insults, though.
She calls Taylor Swift “brilliant,” Justin Timberlake “the best all-arounder,” Barbara Walters “an amazing woman,” and admits that her decision to have a preventative double mastectomy last year was “nowhere near” as serious as what Angelina Jolie managed.
“She had lost her mother and her aunt to it, and she has all those babies to take care of,” says Osbourne. “I’ve had my life, and she hasn’t yet.”
She explains, “It’s a drug and alcohol addiction, and he slipped really badly. Well, he didn’t slip, he f**kin’ fell. At that time in my life, I couldn’t handle it. I just said, ‘You’ve got to get out and come back when you’re sober.'”
“It was not a case of divorce. I would never divorce my husband. Ever. I love him too much. He’s far from perfect, and I’m even further from perfect, but I’ve known him for 42 years, and we’ve been a couple for 33. That’s my life,” says the former reality star.
She then adds, ” You just don’t walk away from people because they have a problem — unless they write on their c*ck and send it all around the world!”
