Osbourne: Bieber's music disposable

Justin Bieber doesn't make great music in Sharon Osbourne's opinion

Justin Bieber makes "disposable music" that doesn't give him "a licence to misbehave", according to Sharon Osbourne.

The former X Factor judge and music manager is the latest celebrity to weigh in following Justin's recent run-ins with the law.

Speaking on Chelsea Handler's US talk show, Sharon said if she was the teenager's manager "he would have to go to a hospital to get my foot out of his a**".

"And after they pried my foot from his a**, it's all about the music," she added.

Sharon went on: "If you make great music, I'll accept anything. If you're a great artist, I'm not so judgmental. But when you do floppy, poppy, disposable music, I don't care."

The Talk star, who has had success managing artists including her hubby Ozzy Osbourne, also said she isn't sure Justin, 19, does anything that will "stand the test of time".

"If I seriously managed him, I would put him in the studio until he came out with a great album. And then, it gives you a licence to misbehave," she said.

Meanwhile, Justin's recent troubles don't seem to have hurt his popularity after it was reported that his Madame Tussauds waxwork in New York has been groped so many times that it is starting to wear away - and has had to be removed.

A source told The New York Post's Page Six: "With no ropes or barriers to stop them, thousands of fans have had their photographs taken with him since then - but it has taken its toll."

Madame Tussauds' general manager Bret Pidgeon said they are looking forward to welcoming "a new 'grown-up' Justin" model back to the attraction in the future.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
