Sharon Osbourne tried to inject herself into the U2-Apple story last week. Ozzy’s wife – who bounces from one reality/talk show to another, in between trips to the plastic surgeon – puked up a few nasty tweets last week about Bono’s anti-poverty work and the band’s groundbreaking free album release deal with Apple.
“U2 you are business moguls not musicians anymore. No wonder you have to give your mediocre music away for free cause no one wants to buy it,” Mrs. O barked.
“Whose political ass are we going to pull you out of today? Or are you front row at another tragic fashion show?”
Why is Sharon so cranky? Did it suddenly dawn on her that while her poor rocker hubby Ozzy was off on multiple benders U2 was busy building a stellar career that’s still going strong? The Osbournes are a crazy lot as we well know from watching their “reality” shows through the years, so maybe the old dear just couldn’t help herself.
And she barely registers on Bono’s radar. “I can’t believe she didn’t take the high road,” he said to big laughs during a radio interview. “What a shocker.”
