Shazza: Bieber 'thinks he's black'

X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne said she wanted to to go out with a bang

Sharon Osbourne has sparked controversy by saying that Justin Bieber "doesn't realise he's white and not black".

The X Factor judge spoke out about the pop star, whose bad boy antics have kept him in the headlines.

Sharon told thedailybeast.com: "I feel really bad for him. There's this little kid with a huge dream, he's cute, girls love him, and he wants to be a mean boy, and he's about as mean as a f****n' kitten, and he's trying to act out.

"It's like pissing in a bucket. It's like, 'Oh, we're the bad boys!" F*** off! You don't know what bad is.'

"And I think that he's lost, I really do. I think he doesn't realise he's white and not black, that's a huge problem. And, at the point he's at in his career, it's so dangerous because we've seen it all before a million times.

"Where do you go when you're a child entertainer and then you want to transition to be a man? Very few make it."

Her comments sparked controversy on Twitter, with one user, ‏CraigStunna, writing: 'What Sharon Osbourne said about Justin Bieber was racist as hell! So him apparently acting "bad" means he's trying to be black? Oh ok?"

Rhoodje wrote: "Your comment about Justin Bieber is really racist! Define 'acting black' please?"

Sharon's remark came in the same interview in which she said she won't do more X Factor after this year's series and blamed Dannii Minogue for her previous decision to leave, branding the former X Factor judge "insignificant".

Sharon told thedailybeast.com: "I chose to leave because I was uncomfortable there at that time with a woman that was on the panel.

"She's insignificant, but at that time, I let her get under my skin and I should have been the bigger person. But hey, I chose to leave. That's all in the past.

"I wanted to end it on the right note. I'm only doing it this one season, it's been 10 years, and I want to end it on the right way."

Take this opportunity to reconnect with it. You'll be surprised to learn how much you enjoy your own company.More
