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!!!

Well, I used to like Sharon Osbourne. Not anymore. How many records has she sold?? more than 100,000,000? I don't think so. Bon Jovi always sing live, they are just that good that she couldn't tell the difference. Hearing Ozzy live is a different thing all together!

As I read this artical I thought to myself...hmm when was the last time Sharon, or Ozzy. Or Kelly, or anyone else from that family sold 201,881 units in their first week....can you say never? hahaOzzy was a hard rocker & was pretty good in his day, but his time came & went & BonJovi is still rocking hard. Also what is with the "Christian Rock" comment??? I think not! Lip sync? ummm HELLO??? again I think not - plus what is with the annual "Ozz Fest" that tours WITHOUT OZZY!! oh PAHLEEEZE!!!! Obviously I agree with all the comments previous to mine & had to giggle at a few, I might add. Bon Jovi is awesome - it's not just Jon looking hot as hell, it's not just Richie's incredible talent, it's them as a whole, rocking towns from NJ to CA. They are (as my 12 yr old daughter-who is also a fan would put it) THE Shiznit! They are awesome and I can't wait for December 6th, as they will be rocking my doorstep & I will be there rocking right with them, as always....So Sharon (haha as if she's reading this) - go blow bat chunks onto your chicken-beheadin fool of a husbund cause yeah....his show is over
