Osbourne Slams 'C**p' Bon Jovi

Outspoken SHARON OSBOURNE has dismissed BON JOVI as a "bunch of Christian rockers" after she witnessed their performance at the Fashion Rocks concert on Monday (17OCT05) night.

Osbourne, wife of hellraising BLACK SABBATH frontman OZZY OSBOURNE, was unimpressed with the JON BON JOVI-fronted Americans at the Monte Carlo, Monaco event.

She said, "They look like a bunch of Christian rockers. They are not rock 'n' roll.

"I thought they were c**p - and they didn't even sing live."

Oh please, Sharon has no idea what she is talking about, I have been a huge Jovi fan for 20yrs and they are great LIVE, and I do not know if they did or didn't sing LIVE at that gig, but sometimes unfortunately tv shows etc prefer bands to mime!!!! So either way they aren't CRAP and they DON'T look like A CHRISTIAN ROCK BAND!!!! Will she pay out Black Sabbath? Nooooooo, ummmmmmm when was the last time they had an album let alone a top song in the music charts???? Ha ha haaaaaaaa....who cares what she thinks anyway, she is sometimes tooo outspoken and narrow minded for her own good."Have a Nice Day Mrs Osbourne"!ps. hmmmmm yeh Kelly is great at singing LIVE, maybe she should consider miming all the time!!!!

I believe that when you spend most of your life producing and listening to the same music, as she has with Ozzy, she has no clue what true music really is. The poor woman! She needs to learn to be more open minded to other music styles, not just her husbands. The only difference between Bon Jovi's and Ozzie's music is that our boys focus on real life issues, which are inspiring to the soul, not a bunch of nonsense. If you get my drift. When have you ever heard a song by Osbourne that has inspired millions of fans? Exactly! And by the way, Bon Jovi doesn't lipsinc. They don't mimic others, like her husband, per say. =) May I say more...

Sharon used to be a great person, in my opinion. but why did she say so? I've seen the pictures of that show and Sharon was doing quite friendly with Jon Bon Jovi (holding hands and hugging). I never thought this could do any problem...and Bon Jovi IS rock'n'roll, I would even say they are yhe heart of rock'n'roll. And they have always been in top 10 live performers. so, is there any reason to grumble? Personally I don't think so.

Sharon Osbourne doesn't know what she's talking about. Bon Jovi are the best band in the world. I think being a judge on X Factor has gone to her head. In fact, a friend told me that she asked a contestant on X Factor to sing her favourite song which turned out to be Livin' on a Prayer. Sorry, but who did that song again? I think it was BON JOVI. If they'd have done that then she wouldn't have said anything. At least Jon Bon Jovi didn't dance like a complete and utter prat unlike Sharon did when she came on and introduced an act that was as c**p as Skin and The Kills. Out of all the acts Bon Jovi were the only one worth listening to. Did Sharon actually think the other acts were good? If so I think age is beginning to show and it's about time she got herself a hearing aid!!!

I actually am an Ozzie fan from about 30 years ago, but not a Sharon fan if she could dismiss both a huge talent like Bon Jovi as well as a truly decent and respectful person like Jon Bon Jovi. I've seen very little in the way of criticism towards Jon which is,in itself, a major testament to his decency. It's a shame that someone like Sharon, who seems to pride herself on her tolerance for differences, could be so narrow-minded in this regard. Does she truly believe that one needs to behave like an idiot in order to earn the title of rock star? Just cause Jon's a good guy and actually has some traditional and healthy values doesn't disqualify him from being able to rock. It's ironic that Bon Jovi's latest album is all about making peace despite your differences and here's clueless Sharon scoffing at him because he's not like her (thank God). She really gave a great example of just the problem Bon Jovi's trying to shed light on! Okay, lastly, I have to add what a hypocrite she must be as I read just yesterday where she and Ozzie spent most of an evening on some designer's yacht chatting and joking with Jon! Well, at least Jon need not worry that anyone with half a brain is going to be influenced by someone as notorious as her for bad judgement!

Sharon, go get a life... You were happy enough to pose for the photos with Jon, get some extra publicity.... Just shows what a back-stabbing cow you really are! First Maiden, now Jovi... I've had my say elsewhere bout the Maiden thing, but this has really got me riled. I have had the misfortune of seeing Ozzy live, and if the rumours (from a respectable rock journo) are to be believed, it was someone else singing and even that was total c**p! I've seen Jovi most tours and & they just get better & better. Sharon seems to forget that none of the guys were exactly angels earlier in their careers & just because they've grown up a bit, it doesn't mean that they don't rock. Much better to have no publicity & a loyal fan base than to have every little bit of your dirty washing displayed for all to see.... I sure don't want to know about all the drink & drugs her kids have consumed, and the rehab... Shouldn't need to know the meaning of the word at their age! Go get your picture taken with someone your own level... some of that rubbish you happily promote on a Saturday should just about do... no rock there, is there... just a load of c**p!

Bon Jovi is by far One of the best if not "THE" best group of performers in a very long time.Their music is so true to life and yet has that kick when you need it or has that feel to it that just touches your soul.they have produced some serious "ROCK AND ROLL" and also some very passionate love songs and I think for a band to be able to produce such a great mix of songs is a wonderful blessing.And I think the proof is in the 100,000,000 million fans + that they have That have stuck by them since the beginning and the new generation to follow them.My children listen to them and they can actually understand them.They love them as much as I do and its not because Mom forces them its because they know good when they see and hear it!BON JOVI, you are great and always will be.And they do all this without drugs or biting the heads off of rodents! :)And to make such an ignorant rude comment was childish especially since Bon Jovi have never bashed ozzy.And as far as christian rockers go, so be it, its better than satanic! So Sharone you see your opinion doesnt matter so next time keep your sniveling little comments to yourself if you dont know what your talking about, you know what they say about opinions >;).And I am sure other fans would agree with me when I say, "Sharone, you suck!"
