Is Kelly Osbourne defending Kimye? Umm … sort of!
The outspoken Osbourne has given her two cents about Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's controversial Vogue cover, and while her words aren't all complementary -- the 29-year-old TV personality definitely defends the duo.
On Tuesday, the E! star took to her blog to give her thoughts, writing, "I don't think there has been this much controversy over an American Vogue cover since 2008, with their April issue featuring LeBron James and Gisele Bundchen!"
The Fashion Police star is referring to the Vogue cover which featured James, who was shown baring his teeth with his arm around Bundchen's waist, and caused an uproar for appearing to propagate racial stereotypes. Many likened the striking interracial image with the iconic image of King Kong and Fay Wray.
Osbourne asserts that the outrage then was overblown -- just as it is now over Kimye's April 2014 cover. The former reality star does understand why some readers are upset about the cover, saying, "There is no denying that it looks like a really beautiful picture for the cover of Prom magazine so I understand why the fashionistas of the world would not like it."
And while she may not like the prom-tastic cover, she thinks the negativity is extreme. "People are even going so far as to cancel their subscriptions or bloggers [are] taking down the link to Vogue magazine. I don't want to even go into the awful things people have said about them." The purple-haired Brit continued, "I find this disgusting. Regardless of whether or not you think Kim and Kanye are worthy enough [to] be on the cover...it's not your decision to make. I do believe that would be up to Anna Wintour."
Osbourne also added a few words about Wintour, Vogue's editor-in-chief:
"Vogue would not be what it is today without her foresight. She knows what she is doing and no one can make her do anything."
Hmm ... is someone trying to butter up Anna Wintour to get on the cover of the glossy mag?! We think so!
Ozzy's daughter also added, "Sooooooo to all you people bashing Vogue, Kim, Kanye, and Anna, stop and really think for a second because I am willing to bet my life that whether you recognize it or not, somewhere hidden deep down inside of all of us is the dream of being on the cover of VOGUE!!! So back off, stop s--tting on people's dreams that have come true and try for once to be happy for others' success. Stop raining on their parade!"
Do we secretly want to be on the cover of Vogue -- yeah sure. That would be cool, and so would owning a pony. But it seems unrealistic at this juncture in life. But do we also think Kimye's cover is absurd and Vogue made a mistake by putting the fame-hungry reality hounds on it? Yes, yes we do.
But seriously, we'd really like a pony.
