Rock boss Sharon Osbourne had slammed the Welsh rockers for booking Donington exclusively, thus preventing Ozzfest from taking place there...

SHARON OSBOURNE, wife and manager of OZZY, has contacted NME.COM in order to issue an open apology to STEREOPHONICS following recent remarks she made about the band.

As reported previously on NME.COM, Sharon had blasted the Stereophonics, labelling them ‘Stereo-whatever-the fuck-they’re-called’ for booking Donington and in so doing preventing Ozzfest from reclaiming the site as the “the home of metal”.

She also added at the time: “And they have a clause in their fucking contract preventing anyone else from playing there this summer.”

Now, Sharon has apologised for her “big fucking mouth and crass attitude”.

Her apology in full reads:

“Dear Kelly, Stuart and Richard,

“In response to the article in NME dated May 5, now you know why everyone calls me the ‘Queen Of Evil’. It’s because I have a big fucking mouth and a crass attitude. I absolutely did make the comments that were printed in the NME, however on this occasion I feel what I said was taken out of context. You ARE the Stereo-fucking-phonics, one of the best bands in the world and I have the greatest respect for your band and what you’ve achieved and you certainly have the right to put whatever you want in your contracts. It’s none of my business.

“My sincere apologies for my crassness, Sincerely, Sharon Osbourne.”

“P.S. After Ozzy heard what had happened I had to go to hospital to have his foot taken out of my ass.”

Stereophonics play Donington on July 14 while Ozzfest is at Milton Keynes on May 26.
