Sharon Osbourne Attacks Lady Gaga Over Bullying
X Factor judge says star's counselling buses were a 'publicity stunt'...
The returning X Factor judge has used her new autobiography - which is being serialised in The Sun - to accuse the star of creating an anti-bullying foundation as a "publicity stunt".
Shazza originally tangled with Gaga after the pop star sent a public letter of criticism to her daughter Kelly Osbourne.
And the talent show judge was also critical of Gaga for not taking a tougher line with her more over-enthusiastic "little monsters" over their attacks on Kels.
She wrote: "By not repudiating her fans' bullying, she was condoning it. That's why I called her a hypocrite.
"I was so disappointed because I had always been a huge fan. I have been to three of her shows and she's undeniably a very talented woman.
"But you can't bang on about being anti-bullying and then refuse to tell your fans to stop haranguing other young women with nasty threats."
And she revealed that Gaga's fans had driven Kelly to tears with their online abuse.
"The comments got worse, to the point where Kelly called me in tears, 'Mummy, it's never-ending'," Sharon said.
"[Gaga] may have been bullied at school, but she was also the little rich kid that got everything she f**king wanted. She should know better.
"On Gaga's last tour there would be a bus at each venue and she put therapists in there for kids who were bullied.
"I felt it was just a publicity stunt. Perhaps the next time she has one of these mobile counselling stations she should go in and ask the therapist for advice on setting good examples for her fans."
Sharon's new autobiography, Unbreakable, is published on 10 October.
