Kelly Osbourne Calls Lady Gaga A 'Great Big Hypocrite'

Kelly Osbourne is not mincing her words when it comes to Lady Gaga.
"I loved Lady Gaga. I totally believed in everything she stood for, until I realized she's a great big hypocrite," Kelly told the new issue of Cosmopolitan, which features the "Fashion Police" star on its July 2013 cover.
Kelly's comments stem from a feud that started in early 2012, when, during an appearance on "Fashion Police," she suggested Gaga was disrespectful to fans and journalists by skipping the Grammys red carpet. Following her remarks, Gaga fans took to Twitter, and attacked Kelly over her views.
The feud continued into late 2012, when on Alan Carr's "Chatty Man" talk show in the UK, Kelly suggested she thought Gaga was pregnant, due to a fashion choice, and Gaga's apparent decision to stop dyeing her hair at the time.
Eventually, Gaga responded with an open letter on her website, telling Kelly her "show breeds negativity." Gaga went on to suggest Kelly should "defend others who are bullied for their image."
Speaking to Cosmo's latest issue, Kelly responded to that open letter from Gaga, seemingly addressing Gaga directly through the magazine.
"Don't say, 'When you see bullying, intervene,' while letting your fans send me death threats. If my fans did that, I would not stand for it. You can say whatever you want with your millions of monsters. I know the truth. [Your] bells and whistles mean nothing to me. You're feeding on the freaks and geeks to further your career?" Kelly told mag. "Do you really care about the gay community? Because if you did, you'd stand up for it more than you do."
In the new interview, Kelly also addressed her father, Ozzy Osbourne's, recent admission that he fell off the wagon.
"I love and respect that he's honest enough to say, 'Yes, I did this. It was my fault.' He's a real man," Kelly said.
"Most people would hide, and he doesn't. It doesn't make me love him any less. It took a long time to get to that place, but I understand it now. And my mother does too," she added.
