KELLY OSBOURNE – ‘I’M PISSED OFF ABOUT MISSING THE NME AWARDS’

The singer tells NME.COM she hopes to reschedule her visit to the UK soon...

KELLY OSBOURNE has spoken for the first time about her cancelled appearance at last week’s NME AWARDS, saying she’s “pissed off” that her mother SHARON banned her from attending.

Kelly was on her way to Los Angeles airport when Sharon called and told her she couldn’t go to the ceremony because she had seen news reports showing of tanks and soldiers patrolling London’s Heathrow Airport .

“I do feel so bad, ” Kelly told NME.COM. “I was really looking forward to it. Loads of my friends were going that I haven’t seen in ages and I was really excited. But my mum called when I was on my way and she was hysterical, crying and saying, ‘you’re not going'”.

“She didn’t want a war to start and me to be on the other side of the world. I understand, I guess, but I was so pissed off.

“I really was so angry and I ended spending the night of the Awards at home by myself, ” she added.

The singer said she hopes to reschedule her UK appearance for the coming months, when the threat of war settles. “I’m going to try and come as soon as I can and I’m really sorry I let down my fans.”

‘The Osbournes’ star commented that the mood in America is one of panic, with the possibility of war looming.

“Fifty per cent of what you read is a load of crap”, she said. “But everyone’s going a bit mad, buying duck tape and three days worth of food. It’s kind of getting out of hand.”

Kelly is set to embark on a month-long American tour in two weeks time.

“I love touring, ” she said. “But I miss my home and family.”

If all goes to plan, she hopes to tour the UK during the summer and there are suggestions she may be added to the line-up to father, Ozzy’s massive Ozzfest.
