In a move which I find highly relatable, Sharon Osbourne ditched The X Factor UK because she can no longer stand the sound of singing children on it. Me too, girl. Although, wave the kind of money at me that Sharon was probably making and the jackpot sound of a slot machine would drown out the annoying sound of those singing children.
In a statement to Facebook, Sharon made the announcement that she had decided not to sign back on to the series this year.
This is my official statement regarding X Factor. If it reads differently in the papers then it’s been altered:“After…
The Huffington Post is reporting that this exit is coming off of a controversial interview Sharon did last month with Howard Stern. On the show, Howard asked why she didn’t do the audition segments of the X Factor and she replied with this gem:
“Oh fuck, I don’t have to have those kids singing in my face. Those little shits. They all suck. It is like, ‘Hey, is this fucking karaoke or what?'”
Thank you Sharon for saying what every dark-hearted bitch in any audience is thinking when 8-year-old Britney goes up on stage and yodels a mediocre rendition of a Rihanna hit to the judges. Speak truth to your power, Sharon!
During her interview with Howard, Sharon also snapped on Simon calling him a “pain in the arse” who will do anything to get his “fucking fat face on TV.” Simon isn’t a whiner though: he can dish it and take it. He later said that “words don’t hurt me” and he would still work with Sharon.
The X Factor confirmed Sharon’s exit with the following statement:
“The X Factor can confirm Sharon Osbourne has decided not to return to this year’s show. Sharon will always be a big part of The X Factor family and we wish her all the best for the future.”
Don’t worry about Sharon’s checking account, though. Not only is she still for sure rich as all Hell from being an Osbourne, but she also still works on The Talk and there’s an opening for a new head bitch in town since Julie Chen is gone. After that gold-star response to why you hate children, I think we know who the new moderator should be! Sharon, take your rightful child-hating place at the head of the table. It’s your turn now.
