Osbourne Slams Pearl Jam For Becoming Soft

SHARON OSBOURNE insists the OZZFEST music festival remains true to its heavy metal history, while other bands such as PEARL JAM, have become too mainstream. The feisty wife of rocker OZZY OSBOURNE, believes that while many acts have mellowed in their old age, hardcore rock fans are loyal purists, deserving of an appropriate line-up. She explains, "Love Pearl Jam. But Pearl Jam is now like (US retail chain store) the Gap crowd. The baggy trousers. "It's a date. It's nice, lovely music. You know, there is this whole other world out there. "But people are snobbish and don't want to mix with it. We love those people! We embrace them! They are as loyal as they can be."

what a joke - pearl jam are about the only class act around simple as that. If you want 16 year old boys music see osbourne and 'heavy' rock acts like black sabbath - if you want mans music then see pearl jam. She is a joke and so is her views. A professional?? at what? oh x factor!! yea thats right that gives her the credibility to do say what she wants eh?? Vedder has more talent in his little toe than anyone she might regard as still credible and not having 'sold out'. Ridiculous.

Mainstream? are u kidding me....what exactly would you call taking a wad of cash to do a ridiculous reality show (something none of the osbornes live in) on mtv...please...you don't have to agree that pj is a great band and you don't have to agree with their politics, but it is a fact that they walked away from more fame and more money because they chose not to be mainstream. That must be some damn fine pain killers the osbornes get because her statement was borderline incoherent.
