Kelly Osbourne rejects heavy metal, opts for pop sound on second album


By Wade Paulsen, 06/30/2004 

As the fad that accompanied the pioneering MTV reality-documentary show The Osbournes fades away, daughter Kelly Osbourne has finally decided to embrace her real taste in music.

In an interview with AP Radio, Kelly said that she wanted her second album, currently being recorded, to reflect an "1980s pop" sensibility. In the interview, Kelly admitted that she didn't care for heavy metal, the genre that her father Ozzy helped popularize with Black Sabbath and the 'Ozzfest' concert tours. We presume that means that Kelly also didn't like her first album, which was "heavy metal" and flopped on two labels under two different titles (Shut Up, in its first release on Epic, and Changes, in its expanded re-release on Sanctuary).

In fact, not only does Kelly not care for heavy metal, but she went on to add, "I don't really like rock." So what does this rebellious daughter like? "I like '80s pop. I really want to go in an '80s direction this time." No wonder Kelly scrapped her almost-completed second album.

According to Chart Attack, Kelly has now started working with former 4 Non Blondes singer-songwriter Linda Perry, who recently placed #37 on a list of the music industry's 100 most influential people for her work with Pink ("Get the Party Started"), Christina Aguilera ("Beautiful") and Courtney Love.

Just what Kelly, who just completed a two-month stint in drug rehab, needs -- to be linked in public consciousness to a legendary drug abuser.
