Osbourne Blames Weight-Obsessed Media For Her Drug Addiction

Rock heiress KELLY OSBOURNE has blamed the media's cruel comments about her weight for her descent into drug abuse.

The CHANGES star understands why her famous peers suffer eating disorders, because like her, they have suffered public scrutiny about their appearances.

She complains, "I was doing drugs before The Osbournes debuted, but suddenly hearing I wasn't thin enough or pretty enough didn't help me 'just say no.'

"I suffered more for being fat than for being a junkie. It's an awful existence being famous. You realise it's not about you. It's about what others want you to be.

"It's why actresses succumb to eating disorders because food and weight is something, anything, they can control."

I am so upset that Kelly would blame anyone for her drug use, other than her genes and her own abilty not to use them. No one or anything can make you use drugs. I have heard so many excuses from people saying thisor that made me do drugs, this is what drug users do blames others for their addiction! Kelly this is the first time I have been so mad at you, please don't blame other people for your drug use. You have just given people a reason to continue to blame others for their choice to use drugs. I really do like you very much and admire all that you have gone through, but this is something I think is just plain wrong! Believe me, I have heard every excuse from those in my own family for their drug use. It starts with yourself, no one can make you or force you to use drugs. Thank you for listening.
