Kelly Osbourne did the whole People Magazine thing this week. I think all of us knew Kelly went into rehab about six weeks ago, but none of us noticed that she got out about two weeks ago. So, of course that had to be remedied. She needs everyone to know so she found a magazine willing to give her a few hundred words to explain why she was in rehab and how she is 100% clean now for the first time in her life.
Have you ever noticed that celebrities always say that. Kelly was in rehab in 2004 and 2005 but says this is the first time she has been clean. I bet if we go find some interviews from back then she said the same damn thing. I know she said something last year when she was taking care of Amy Winehouse.
I hate how stars seem to only go to rehab for alcohol and painkillers. Kelly is no different. In the interview she says she got hooked on liquid Vicodin at 13 after having surgery. Apparently 11 years and 3 trips to rehab didn't cure it? Please. That is such a crock. They always want you to think it was an accident or it was the fault of a doctor. Kelly Osbourne didn't go to rehab for just Vicodin and it is another way that celebrities make “everyday people” feel as if they are inferior. Stars never go to rehab for heroin or cocaine or crack or meth. I know. You are saying, yes they do. You want to know when they do go for that stuff? When they got arrested for possessing it. Otherwise it is alcohol and painkillers.
It is such a crock and it isn't like Kelly Osbourne admitting why she went to rehab is going to affect her career. Who cares about why she went. Just tell us the truth. Ozzy would. I'm not meaning to pick on Kelly. I'm just using her as an example of how celebrities try and pretend to be something they are not. It is the same with the photoshopping, airbrushing, and plastic surgery.
