Don’t count Kelly Osbourne in the chorus ripping Vogue and its’ fearless leader Anna Wintour for their eyebrow-raising cover of April’s issue, featuring pop culture power couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
The 29-year-old reality star, in her blog Tuesday, defended the editrix for the divisive decision, saying her’s is the only opinion that amounts to anything in the issue.
“Vogue would be not be what it is today without her foresight,” Osbourne wrote. “She knows what she is doing and no one can make her do anything.”
Osbourne conceded that she feels the shot “looks like a really beautiful picture for the cover of prom magazine,” which helped her to “understand why the fashionistas of the world would not like it,” but it’s not something Wintour — or Kimye — should have to apologize for.
“I am willing to bet my life that whether you recognize it or not somewhere hidden deep down inside of all of us is the dream of being on the cover of VOGUE!!!” she pointed out. “So back off stop sh*tting on people’s dreams that have come true and try for once to be happy for other’s success.
“Stop raining on their parade!”
Osbourne also compared the cover to other controversial covers of years’ past, such as John Lennon and Yoko Ono nude in Annie Leibovitz’s Rolling Stone shot; and Vanity Fair’s 1991 shot of a naked and pregnant Demi Moore in her birthday suit.
