Kelly Osbourne calls out Lady Gaga’s monsters as weight-obsessed bullies

Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Osbourne is kind of a conundrum to me. On one hand, she’s the perfect example of nepotism in Hollywood, and I don’t quite understand why she’s part of the “Fashion Police” program because her own taste in clothing can be atrocious at times. Also, I still don’t get the lavender hair thing even if Kelly would probably respond that I have housewife hair. At the moment, I actually have a really bad Drew Barrymore ombre situation going on, but all that should change by this weekend if I can convince my ass to do something about it.

Conversely, I kind of dig that Kelly has forged her own separate identity outside of her famous dad, and admire that she’s lost so much weight in recent years and gotten really healthy. Still, Kelly insists that people still call her fat all the time, and the very worst offenders (on Twitter, I suspect) are Lady Gaga fans. It’s really no coincidence that Gaga labels her followers as “little monsters” because that’s exactly how they act. Interestingly enough, Gaga is supposed to be so anti-bully, but (as Kaiser has pointed out), she has no problem letting her fans attack Adele for her weight (Gaga even does this herself to a lesser degree). So I have no problem believing that Gaga’s fans are doing the same thing to Kelly:

Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Osbourne has been open about her struggles with her weight in the past, but even though she’s in a good place now — both physically and mentally — some naysayers are still itching to bring her down.

“I’m the thinnest I’ve ever been and the healthiest I’ve ever been. The totally insane thing is that I’m a UK size four to six and people still say I’m fat,” she said in a recent interview with the UK’s Fabulous magazine. “I get called fat all the time. A big fat wh-re.”

“Lady Gaga’s fans are the worst,” she continued. “They’ve said I should kill myself, that they hope I get raped. I mean, it’s crazy but I’ve had this all my life and I just try and ignore it.”

Gaga’s fans were particularly incensed when the outspoken red carpet host mused that the pop singer, 26, might be pregnant after her noticeable weight gain at the 2012 Grammys.

“I have no filter,” Osbourne said. “I say what I think and that’s it. I actually think she’s a good singer but she has the worst fans in the world and you have a responsibility to stop that. I think you do anyway.”

Osbourne, 28, famously lost 65 pounds during her spin on the dance floor as a competitor on Dancing With the Stars in 2009. She’s kept up a healthy lifestyle ever since with a combination of workouts and a more regulated diet.

“I lost weight with the dancing and by actually eating properly,” she told the magazine. “I haven’t put it back on. I still exercise every day, even just for 15 minutes, but I’m careful with what I eat, I read the labels.”

And the former reality show star has a little help from her chef boyfriend, Matthew Mosshart, as well. The vegan chef helps to keep Osbourne’s insecurities in check, she said.

“He’s amazing. I couldn’t believe that he truly liked me because I never think people ever could, but I’m so happy,” she shared with the magazine. “I don’t think I’ve ever really known what love is like before.”

Kelly seems to project a healthy attitude towards the harassment from Gaga’s monsters, but it still has to bug a lot to witness such nasty remarks. Why do women (and even some men) insist upon tearing each other down over weight issues? It’s so awful, counterproductive, and just downright mean. Kelly looks great.

    There is no way she is a UK Size 4 or 6 which is the US equivalent of Size o or 2.
    Good on her for losing weight but I think she’s a bit delusional about her size.

    • Laura H says:

      I agree.. Why do celebrities do that? I know they think the cameras add of weight but her and KK really seem to think the general public are gullible idiots. There is nothing wrong with being a UK size 10. It’s an attractive size – she looks that size, she looks hot. Suggesting she’s smaller really discredits a lot of what she is saying for me :(

    • Zigggy says:

      Yes, on Fashion Police the other day she said she was a size 0 and my mom and I were like, what? Maybe a UK 0? (I don’t get sizing)
      Don’t get me wrong, she looks great- better as what she is than a size 0, I imagine.

    • Sweet Dee says:

      She’s only 5’2″ and even though she carries some extra on her arms and face, her waist is pretty small. I believe she could be a 2 or a 4 US, so I think she only stretched it a bit.

      • Lin says:

        Thank you for logic! Height really has everything to do with it. I’m 5’2″, bordering overweight, will never look good in a bikini, but fit into a children’s XL with ease. A girl who is 5’10″ would have to appear anorexic just to fit into my clothes.

      • Sweet Dee says:

        Exactly! A lot of people carry more weight in their arms/face/butt too, and to me that’s what her body type looks to be. I think people around here assume every woman’s body is like their own sometimes.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Sweet Dee, who wrote: “She’s only 5’2″ and even though she carries some extra on her arms and face, her waist is pretty small. I believe she could be a 2 or a 4 US, so I think she only stretched it a bit.”

        If only that ‘she’s only 5’2″ tall’ logic came into play on the Christina Aguilera threads. ‘She’ is only 5’2″ as well, but that doesn’t stop people from calling her fat.

        I’m 5’1 1/2″ tall and I can tell you that every extra pound shows. You can be 15 lbs overweight and look obese. It’s sad, but if you find the balance between exercise and nutrition it can also be good. ;)

      • Lishka says:

        @ Emma, sweetie…Christina IS fat now. I know she says she is happy and stuff, but she IS unhealthily heavy (and bloated) for her tiny frame. No one is expecting her to be a skinny minnie, but we are kidding ourselves if we say she is carrying an extra 15, she is more likely carrying an extra 30+. A spade is a spade. Just sayin. Christina is NOT likely living the healthy life. She doesnt look like she is.

        I’m 5’1 and pregnant, and I am still not rockin three chins or thunder thighs like she is. And I am currently 15 lbs more than when I started, which was already 10lbs more than where I ought to be for my height…so yeah, Christina is not in any way at a healthy weight, coz if she was, she’d stop having to keep insisting she is loving her curves.

    • Chordy says:

      She could be that small and just be a thick girl. I’m built very similarly to Kim Kardashian (minus the silicon) and I wear a 4-6, but I’m thick and look a lot fatter than I actually am. I hate telling people what size I wear because they never believe I wear that size until I put it on, and they act like they’ve just witnessed the world’s greatest magic trick. I had a boyfriend once who threw my laundry in with his and then brought it back to me apologizing profusely for shrinking everything. He was pretty baffled when he found out he didn’t.

    • 'Sup? says:

      Oh, Kelly, just tell them “it takes one to know one!”

    • Violet says:

      Agreed. Plus Kelly’s a raging hypocrite, considering she’s a weight-obsessed bully herself.

    • Rdhberger says:

      The first thing I thought when I head that is ‘is the f**k’ the likes of Rachel Zoe/Nicole Richie are around a size 4-6! Delusionalllll

    • Rdhberger says:

      The first thing I thought when I head that is ‘is she hell’ the likes of Rachel Zoe/Nicole Richie are around a size 4-6! Delusionalllll

  2. DeltaJuliet says:

    I think Kelly is just as hateful as the next person. And as far as Gaga (and Kelly) and the anti-bullying thing? I think mostly what they refer to is don’t bully ME. Or gays. Anything else is fair game.
    The most outwardly “tolerant” people tend to be the least in reality.

  3. Emmy says:

    I realise this is unrelated, but dude. She is SO not a 4-6. Even with her height, she is still probably a 10. 8 minimum. (Uk sizes) I am so over people lying about their size in magazines. Just don’t say a number at all if the real thing embarrasses you! But really, nobody cares and people will respect you more for telling the truth.

  4. Rachel says:

    If she wants people to stop commenting on her weight, maybe she should stop commenting on theirs. Gaga. Christina. You don’t get to have it both ways Kelly. She thinks turnabout is fair play and it’s okay to make fun of them because they did it to her. But it’s not okay. Maybe she should be the bigger person (no pun intended), and let it go.

    • flan says:

      Totally agree.

      She is the one obsessed about weight. This might be because Christina once called her fat, but I remember very well how Kelly started that whole thing by calling her names.

      She has been obsessed with skinny girls since her teens and reacted aggressively to skinny women since (even ones like christina who did not have a problem with her before).

    • mln76 says:

      Yup! She is a no class twit and a hypocritcal whiner! Oh and as for forging an identity different from her father that is BS…her parents basically bought her fame and she wouldn’t have a thing without them. Her street cred is simply that she is Ozzy’s daughter.

    • Annie says:

      In my experience, fat girls can be insanely mean and can be quite the bullies themselves too. They love to play victims but they use their fatsness to be extra mean, and we always have to walk on eggshells whenever we mention bodies or food around them but they don’t stay quiet whenever they want to spill vitriol to skinny or more attractive girls. Many times I’ve had to bite my tongue and remind myself that I look great and don’t have body issues which would make me lash out on someone’s appearance like that, but jeez, I’ve been personally attacked when I never say anything to them, ever, not even to defend myself after taking their abuse. Also, they tend to call skinny girls “disgusting” and if a skinny girl does the same forget about it.
      They totally take advantage of their disadvantage and Kelly is still a big fattie on the inside.

  5. stellalovejoydiver says:

    I am always for calling out bullies as the assholes they are, esp online bullying just keeps getting worse, telling someone that they should die or be raped is just disgusting, I would not wish this anyone.
    At the same time Kelly is a bully herself, she keeps harassing Aguilera for her weight gain, even though it is prob a payback for having called her fat like 10 years ago, try to move on, life is too short to be hateful, it just keeps yourself down.
    I do find it hypocritical of her to complain about body shaming, when she herself is a weight bully.

    • Miss Kiki says:

      That is why I just can’t with Kelly. I would be a lot more sympathetic if it wasn’t for the fact that I remember when she used to call other people fat. Also how can you say in the same breath that you have no filter but you expect people to be mindful of what they say to you? The girl just winds me up no end and I very much doubt that she is a size 4/6.

    • Nina W says:

      I agree, KO is a mean bully and I don’t have sympathy for her. She attracts what she puts out. I’m not saying it’s right to sink to her level but what does she expect will happen?

  6. Gem says:

    Kelly O is such a vile, ugly person. She moans about people calling her fat but it’s ok for her to call Christina Aguilera fat? Maybe people are mean to Kelly O is because she’s a mean girl herself. And her transphobic comments when her previous boyfriend cheated on her with a transexual. She’s vile to other people so she shouldn’t be surprised when people are vile to her.

  7. ladybert62 says:

    I find nothing attractive about this person – either physically, intellectually, socially or emotionally. She seems shallow and selfish.

    • Esmom says:

      Agreed. And don’t forget talentless. At one time you needed some talent to become a celeb, not anymore.

      She’s a perfect example of someone who takes up precious celeb space, leaving less room for the talented musicians and actors and other artists who are working their asses off for some bit of recognition. See also Kardashian, K.

  8. JuneBug says:

    Christina Aguilera would beg to differ with Kelly. Kelly called her a fat ass on fashion police . I know, I know, Aguilera started it ….but bullying is bullying. What fun would it be if all the little starlets stopped acting like compleat idiots ?

  9. Dani says:

    I really can’t stand her but she has lost a good amount of weight and for what she was, she looks great. However she is no where near a US 0-2 and I really can’t see her being anything under an 8, which is 100% fine.

    But the bullying thing, she bothers me, because she’s just as much of a bully herself. All the nasty things she’s shamelessly said about Christina? Girl, bye. Don’t be a hypocrite.

  10. Maggie says:

    Some people don’t look good skinny. Some people don’t look good fat. She doesn’t look good skinny because her body proportions are odd. The same with Jennifer Hudson. They look skinny-fat which is the worst thing. BTW she lost a lot of weight but we all know that she is still that fat girl inside. And I’m more than sure that her well being and all her actions depends on numbers on the weight scale. She is obsessed with her weight. Get over it Osbourne!

  11. The Original Mia says:

    I really wish Kelly would STFU. She has little no room to talk about weight shaming/bullying. She’s a hypocrite. She’s also an unpleasant person. Maybe if she contributed something other than catty comments about others to society, people would have more to talk about than her weight.

  12. hayley says:

    are gaga fans still that bad? I thought that since her popularity started fading they quieted down a little bit, but I don’t pay any attention to them.

  13. Ally says:

    Her waistline is fairly slim, so I suppose she could spanx it into a US 2 dress. But, she will always look ‘meaty’ and therefore will not be seen as skinny. Kudos for her for being the healthiest she can be for herself. But skinny? Never.

  14. Annie says:

    Kelly Osbourne dishes it out but can’t take it in. Sorry but if you’re part of a show that bullies celebrities under the disguise of “fashion show” you have no room to moan about being bullied for your appearance.

    And there’s no point in losing weight if you still have the same Fat Girl mentality of everybody hates me, everybody picks on me, why does nobody like me. Grow up and get off Twitter.

  15. shewolf says:

    She’s not the size she says she is but she does look good. I might like the hair colour if there wasnt so much of it.

    What is housewife hair? Like a Kate Gosselin kinda thing?

  16. stephanie says:

    Her bod looks great, good on her for losing the weight, wish she’d go away now though.

  17. some bitch says:

    Kelly looks good. Can’t say I really like her or that she really has any talents, but she usually calls it like it is.

    Little Monsters are the worst. They’re nasty and the ones I’ve met know it and are almost proud of it, reasoning they are justified in their behaviour because so many of them have been bullied too. Quite hilariously one at university called me a dyke not too long ago.

  18. Feebee says:

    Not condoning the bullying she’s being subjected to. But she decides to make a comment about gaga maybe being pregnant which I think is just passive aggressive bullying but that’s okay that just Kelly being herself. She has ‘no filter’. On national television making personal comments about a personal situation. Maybe these twitter bitches just don’t have a filter either.

    Oh and she can take her housewife hair comment and shove it. Oh to be as young and edgy as herself.

  19. marie says:

    my personal opinion is that she’s only mentioning this to talk about her weight loss again. people talk about her weight yes but that’s because that’s all she can talk about herself. plus you really can’t get pissed off when folks give you a taste of your own medicine. yes, the little mosters are atrocious but if you can’t take it then don’t dish it out.

  20. Granger says:

    Ummm… Doesn’t she “work” on a show that makes rude comments about people’s appearances all the time? I’ve heard some vile stuff on Fashion Police the few times I’ve stumbled on it while flipping through channels.

  21. KellyinSeattle says:

    Next thing, Ozzy will be on the Fashion Police with Sharon screeching, “Ozzzzzzzzzzy!”….I do like their reality show, though.

  22. Marie Antoinette Jr. says:

    She may be a UK size 4/USA size 0 in the types of dresses she likes to wear with the big skirts and no sleeves. But I seriously doubt she could squeeze herself into a pair of non stretch size 4 jeans. But none of it matters because that hair is hideous. She looks like a toddler’s coloring book experiment… or a crazy old lady who used too much laundry bluing on herself and then tried to correct it with bleach. But maybe her strategy is that we are all so busy gaping at her cotton candy hair we forget to notice her cottage cheese ass.

  23. Jayna says:

    She is very short with a naturally stocky build. Even thin, her legs are thicker so gives the appearance of being a little heavier than she is. She isn’t even close to fat. And she’s right, the Little Monsters are so self-righteous and mean-spirited. They diss every pop singer who is doing amazing, like Adele and Katy and Rhianna, and say their work is bland and Gaga’s is brilliant. They hate that Lana del Rey’s Ride video was heralded as brilliant by many, because Gaga’s videos last year were a bust and Gaga is supposed to be above all others.

    Not all of her base is like this, just a big part of her “Little Monster” base that lives on the internet. I find it hilarious considering they praise Gaga as all about love and kindness and deeper than other pop stars.

    Kelly is missing the mark. She hasn’t worn her hair dark in ages. She looked so pretty with pale skin and dark hair. Her face just popped.

  24. Melissa says:

    She’s by no means fat, but im a 00 or a 0 and she’s WAY bigger than me. If shed like to trade sizes thst badly come on over lol

  25. blaize says:

    Kelly Osbourne is such a hypocrite. She’s the one who, in 2002, started this ridiculous feud with Christina Aguilera by calling her a c**t and saying “I’ve seen drag queens who looked better”. Then Christina retaliated by making fun of Kelly’s weight and implying that she was ugly. Then Kelly called her a bitch. Then Christina implied that she was bitter. Then, in 2011, years after the feud ended, Kelly tries to play the victim by rehashing what Christina said and calling her a fat bitch.

  26. MSL says:

    I’m not a Kelly Osborne fan but I’d never wish rape on her, especially for being “fat” which she is not. That seems like a comment that a lot of douchebags under the name “anonymous” make on guy blogs. I’m sick of rape being thrown around like it’s no big thing. Off subject I know but I hate when people wish rape on anyone as an insult.

  27. F5 says:

    She’s repulsive.. so is gaga

  28. Angel says:

    Is it just me, or should these celebrities just turn off the Twitter??? Regardless of the argument, bullying, slam, whatever, it seems so much controversy is stirred up by social media. Just turn that shit off. So much fake drama, between the likes of Kelly, Leann, etc. It is possible to survive in this world without broadcasting your every waking moment to the world. Assholes are everywhere. If you put yourself out there, expect to hear from them. Life is much simpler when you’re not obsessed with what everyone else thinks about you. I don’t condone bullying, but there are avenues for these oh so special celebrities to spare themselves the trauma drama.

  29. Pale fire says:

    Kelly is by no means fat. She can’t “diet ” away her figure though. Sometimes people who lose weight and adopt a healthier positive lifestyle simply look stunning because underneath there’s a terrific figure. That’s her shape thicker arms thicker legs and she has a face shape like Dita Von Teese. I’m not a fan of Kelly or have ever paid her attention but if she’s going to snark publicly she should expect it back. However, saying abusive things like wishing rape; which is a horrible thing to say is just fffed up and minimalizing it. Lets all stop and think of that poor girl that was gang raped in India so badly her intestines came out. I sent her a prayer on NYE amongst all the revelry of the count down. I thought of her. Lady Gaga maybe should tweet something to her monsters about not saying ffed up ish like that.

  30. amber says:

    I would kill for her calves!

  31. xoxokaligrl says:

    Gross, she is my height and build and she is a size 6 US at the smallest. I have been her size and she is not thin even for her body type and people do think you are bigger than you are at 5’2.

    Her personality is just awful, she always complains about other people but says the same catty remarks.

  32. anon says:

    your last line to me is interessting given the bashing of Jessica & her weight issues& is that not women attacking other women

  33. la chica says:

    Her body remains misshapen no matter how much weight she loses.

  34. A says:

    Except Kelly is a bully herself…Two wrongs don’t make a right, and she was horrific to Christina and others. Plus, I can’t get over her hypocrisy. At one point, she used to gush over Angelina. Then for somer reason, she trashed her…then back to gushing. She made some sort of Jennifer Aniston dig too, which was ironic considering Ozzy was married when he hooked up with Sharon. She’s made cruel digs at Angelina’s weight, and then turns around and criticizes others for being weight obsessed. Ugh. I stopped watching Fashion Police because of her shit.

  35. Gm says:

    Gaga fans are vile and disgusting.

  36. paranormalgirl says:

    Not a big Kelly Osbourne fan… I think she’s another one of those famous for being famous people and that just annoys me. What is horrid about this is the herd mentality that the “little assholes”… oops, “little monsters” follow. Wishing ill on someone for not caring for your idol is disgusting. And propagating the herd mentality by not saying anything about this behavior is the fault of Lady Gaga. If you assemble and encourage a group of people and they begin to act in an unacceptable way, you DO have a responsibility to make the attempt to steer them in an acceptable direction. Gaga may not be responsible for the actions of her fans, but she is responsible for not addressing it.

  37. Erin says:

    love her! Her attitude seems very honest and healthy. I’m sure she really is a 2-4 UK. The posters above saying height is everything are correct – I am 5’1 and easily a 0-2 US size, though I am certain that it’s fairly easy to make me look chubby in photos, simply because I’m so short and the camera adds 10 pounds.

  38. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    The second you go from ‘EVERYBODY’ makes fun of me for so-and-so (to say nothing of the over-exaggeration)’ to ‘So how come I’m not allowed to make fun of so-and-so’, you’ve lost the point. You’re a wounded animal feeling some self-pity and you have this almost elemental need to impugn anything that resembles your ‘enemy’, but for all of that pain, you reveal yourself to be the child that you are. It doesn’t matter what you look like, if you think that you’re evening the scores, writing historical wrongs or reminding some group that you perceive as on reprieve from the worst of the bullying that it’s only political correctness that is giving them a break at the moment you’ve lost the point. If you’re fixing to wield your ‘Well, one time’ story because it’s something to bring to the axe fight and you’ve just been dying for an opportunity to use it you’ve lost the point and you need a hobby outside of self-obsession-cum-self-pity. No one is special enough to make that bearable, no navel is that astonishing.

    Sometimes I wonder if we use a lot of the self-image pain less as a means of rallying, uniting and comforting and more as a ways of getting outside affirmation of our suspicion that we’ve earned enough points to trade them in for a free insult. Sometimes I sense that when we talk about the crap women do to each other, a large amount of that disunity comes from us not being willing to set down our own righteous indignation so we demand full grovelling rather than honour the dialogue we purport to want. Because if Kelly Osbourne were interested in people treating each other well and interacting with each other at a more civil and humane level, she wouldn’t have uttered a good 94 per cent of the statements that she has spoken in the last ten years.

    We’ve got to let stuff go, there’s not way to right every single wrong so we have to decide what’s more important to us and go from there.

  39. ronnie says:

    Shes on an atkins (severely low carb) diet. The dehydration effects and other weird shit happens to your body if you do it long term where you literally keep shrinking in size, but still look chunky. Like Kelly in person has a size 0 waist for sure. but the camera picks up on her shitty Atkins shape and she looks enormous.

    Atkins give you chunky thighs, in some cases overdeveloped calves and muscular arms, but shrinks ur frame, torso, shoulders and waist without making you much leaner. It redistributes size and muscle in weird places. Please look at her 2010 pics – her first “thin” pics. the girl is tiny- like a girl, but chunky.

    Im not crazy! Ive seen peoples shape change drastically in this diet in the same way.
