Sharon Osbourne has never been one to censor her opinions, so why would she start now?!
The outspoken host of "The Talk" got quite candid while sharing her opinions on Hollywood's elite — including Justin Bieber and Kanye West — in a new interview with The Daily Beast.
"I have no time for [Kanye]. He bores me," Osbourne said, referring to Kim Kardashian's baby daddy. "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. He's his No. 1 fan."
Osbourne also had a few thoughts on Justin Bieber, whom last fall she declared "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,” noted 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.
"And I think that he's lost, I really do," she continued while discussing Selena Gomez's on-again, off-again beau. "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."
While she is brutally honest, Sharon also likes to gives credit when credit is due! She called Taylor Swift "brilliant" and Justin Timberlake the "best all-arounder."
Still, Kanye and Justin shouldn't feel too bad about Sharon's remarks (although we doubt they care), because they are in good company!
Here are a few other celebrities that Osbourne has had some choice words for over the years …
Lady Gaga: "You say [Kelly's] 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," Osbourne posted in an open letter to Lady Gaga on her Facebook page. "Example, when I saw you wear a dress made out of raw meat, I was sickened. When I see you wearing fur, and using it as a fashion statement, the fact 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?"
Madonna: Sharon has dissed the "Material Girl" for years. In 2005, she told British GQ she'd "like to punch" Madonna. "She is so full of [bleep]. She's into Kabbalah one minute, she's a Catholic the next. She'll be a Hindu soon, no doubt." A few months later, Sharon also called Madonna adopting son David a "crock of s--t," adding, "If she wants to help the kid she should have got the father a little trade going, a fruit stand or something like that and built him a mud hut. She should have left him in his own culture, that is what I say."
Dannii Minogue: Sharon has not tried to hide her disdain for her former fellow "X Factor" co-star. "She [Dannii] knows she's [on the show] because of her looks, not because of her contribution to the music industry," Osbourne said on BBC TV's "The Graham Norton Show" in 2007. During her interview with the Daily Beast, Osbourne also admitted Dannii is the reason she quit the show, but now refers to Minogue as "insignificant."
