A week after Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon ripped into Ozzy Osbourne, calling him “a senile delinquent” who is busy “promoting drug abuse and catatonic stupidity,” Kelly Osbourne has come to her father’s defense in her weekly column for some British rag.
“People only say things like this when they want attention, and guess what? He has a book to promote,” points out Kelly, who is now a fashion correspondent for E! Entertainment Television.
“The truth is, I don’t think he’s ever met my father so clearly he doesn’t know that he hasn’t done drugs in years,” she continues. “I feel that from one artist to another, there should be some form of mutual respect, and I also think it’s sad when you resort to talking shit about someone else in order to get yourself press.”
And I think that chicks who ride their father’s coattails shouldn’t be seen or heard.
“Stop being such a bitter old queen, John! You’re better than that,” she concludes. Lydon has yet to respond to Kelly’s vicious retort.
