Sharon Osbourne Hits TV Talk Show Circuit

Is daytime TV ready for the late-night mouth of Sharon Osbourne? The audience will be the judge when the 50-year old mother of the badly-behaved Osbourne clan hits the air with her own talk show this fall. Osbourne says her show-simply called Sharon-will be a bit less highbrow than at least one of its competitors. She tells Reuters, “I could never be as good as Oprah. I won’t be recommending books. That’s not my thing. My experience is life.” The TV producer, rock and roll manager and cancer survivor plans to profile real life people with interesting stories. What viewers… Read more »


Brands to Use 'Free' Music to Lure Teens

The great digital music giveaway is about to begin. In the new year, some of the world’s biggest brands will promote their products and services by doling out millions of free downloads through alliances with digital music services. “You’re going to see lots of free music given out via third-party companies,” buymusic.com founder Scott Blum says. “It’s not going to be Apple and iTunes driving the business. It’s going to be companies like Pepsi and other third parties that are promoting digital music on bottle caps and on labels.” Indeed, Apple Computer has inked a deal with Pepsi to give… Read more »

Ever since that fateful February day when Blink-182 announced they were going on an indefinite hiatus, fans of the band have been clamoring to know just what the future holds for their beloved Mark, Tom and Travis.

Ozzy Up for Ozzfest

Ozzy Osbourne may be famous for biting a head off a bat, but he’ll never bite the hand that feeds him-that is, his fans. Chomping at the bit to get back onstage again since his near-fatal ATV crash late last year, the Prince of F-king Darkness has confirmed plans to headline this summer’s Ozzfest, the monstrously successful heavy metal touring festival he founded in 1996, Billboard.com reports. Details are still sketchy but the bill is also said to include such other headbangers as Slayer, shock-rockers Slipknot and enduring British metal mavens Judas Priest, who recently reunited with vocalist Rob Halford… Read more »


Ozzy And Sharon Osbourne Split Briefly

In an interview with Barbara Walters airing Friday (September 12) on 20/20, Sharon Osbourne admits that she briefly left her husband, Ozzy Osbourne, last spring. The separation occurred around the time their son, Jack, entered rehab for alcohol and substance abuse. Sharon revealed to Walters that she left because Ozzy himself was abusing drugs and alcohol again. “I just said, ‘You just have to stop,’ and he didn’t. And I said, ‘Well then, I’m going,’” Sharon said. The separation only lasted a few days, with Sharon telling Walters, “The minute I left, the next morning, he gave up drinking. But… Read more »
