Sharon Osbourne Calls Out Kim Kardashian - Stirs Controversy

Not everyone sees the world the same way. For example, what some folks view as feminism can be viewed by others as anything but that. Different strokes for different folks as they say, but sometimes those differences come to light in shocking fashion.

As the Daily Mail shares, we have our latest example of that, courtesy of one Sharon Osbourne.

Osbourne was chatting during a recent interview when the subject of reality star Kim Kardashian came up. She had more than a mouthful to say about that topic.

“Kim says she's doing everything in the name of feminism, but that's not feminism! Those girls live off their bodies, half of LA has been through them and everything they do from the sex tape to the plastic see-through dresses and the gym wear is about sex, not female progress. And listen: God bless them,” she said.

“If Kim wants to show off her body, fine. But that's not feminism, that's being a ho. And there's nothing wrong with being a ho, but always remember what you are.”

Well now. Tell us how you really feel, Sharon. For Kardashian’s part, she’s obviously never been shy about flashing her body. She addressed her decision to post a naked selfie in a post on her website after a storm started brewing.

“I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me,” she wrote.

“I hope that through this platform I have been given, I can encourage the same empowerment for girls and women all over the world.”

Just last month, she offered up some thoughts on the subject of feminism in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia.

“I feel in my soul I’m a feminist. I just don’t need labels to make me feel or know what I am inside,” she said.

Fair enough. We’ll consider these different interpretations of the term by different generations and leave it that, but it’s still unclear why Osbourne felt the need to take the discussion to this level. In any event, she did offer up some insight into the strides that women have made in the music industry since she first became involved.

“When I first started in the music industry there were no women of any power there. In the 1970s you were treated like a secretary and told to get people a sandwich, because that's what you were good for,” she said.

“And most women just couldn't do any better, but I could because of my father - and because I had a lot of front.”

She’s also ticked off that income inequality remains a thing in today’s day and age, and she offered up an interesting solution to fix it once and for all.

“The fact that a woman doing the same job as a man still gets less is insanity,” she said. “I think all the women in the world should set a date and go on strike for two days. Trust me, in those two days, not a lot would get done.”
