The potty-mouthed star says the music channel makes her "sick to my stomach"...
KELLY OSBOURNE has launched a scathing attack on MTV after the music channel reportedly refused to play the video for her new song, ‘COME DIG ME OUT’.
The star of MTV’s most popular ever show, ‘The Osbournes’, complained that MTV America only play a limited number of music videos a week and only care about commercially successful acts.
She told the Antimusic: “MTV makes me sick to my stomach, when you’re hot, you’re hot. When you’re not, you’re not. MTV only play 35 videos a week, they used to be all about breaking new artists. Now, if you’re not in a rap group, if you’re not talking about ‘I fucked the cutest girl in school’ or if you’re not singing about skateboarding, you can’t get played.”
The potty-mouthed 18-year-old received a record contract with Epic after the successful first series of ‘The Osbournes’, but her album ‘Shut Up’ has sold only 134,000 copies in the US since its release in November last year.
In the same interview Osbourne said she knows she will never be accepted as a credible musical artist.
She said: “I honestly don’t care if I sell any albums. People don’t see me as an artist, they see me as a television star. And I don’t care. I don’t care if people take me seriously as an artist.”
After the success of the first series of ‘The Osbournes’ in the US, which averaged six million viewers over 13 episodes, viewing figures for the second series fell from 6.6 million viewers in November 2002 to 3.3 million in January 2003. MTV still plan to air a third series of the show in the autumn.
