Well, looks like there is no quibbling over this one. If Sharon is looking for sympathy, she might have to look elsewhere than the comment-sphere. Is this indicative of what entertainment mogul says is the waning power of celebrity (debatable) or more about level of celebrity? If celebrity really is a metaphor for class movement, as some sociologists say, then those who are not in the upper echelon are seen to be fortunate to be where they are and scrutinized more for actions which observers think might show ungratefulness. Interestingly enough, in this era where it's more about more about individual brand; Osbourne seems to only have as much value as that which she is currently connected. The brand consistenly supercedes her. Word to the wise, that's a tip for all of us in today's marketplace now, isn't it?
The sole female judge of “America’s Got Talent”, Sharon Osbourne, confirmed she was quitting the show after seven seasons at the judging table. She claims NBC fired her son Jack after it was announced he had multiple-sclerosis disorder. She says the network promised Jack to be on the TV series “Stars Earn Stripes,” but he never signed a contract. She said this was discrimination and therefore cannot pretend to like her job anymore. Hmmmm.. And do fans sympathize?
I used to like her when she was on “The Osbournes” family show … but when she started on “The Talk” after having her own failed talk show she was different … I really don’t like her this year. Bring back Leah and I will try to watch a whole show … and not just the first 3-4 min.
Sharon, you're lucky Hollywood even accepted you. Personally I like you but you aren't particularly talented or funny. … I'm sure AGT will survive just swell without you. You're not hurting anyone but your own wallet. …
She is a hella businesswoman, and her excellent judgement … can probably be credited to saving Ozzie's life/career … However, explain to me how that equates to multi-million dollar talent? Being a "personality" at one time was an alternative to a real talent … Your fifteen minutes are up, as should be the careers of your children.
Ah, the fickle masses. Or does the below just demonstrate how quickly the celebrity draw can dry in this day and age of everyone as his/her own mini-celebrity with fans, followers, friends, Instagram paparazzi and more. Looks like relevancy today means playing a brand-new game that most TV execs aren't nearly aware of yet. But the show will probably go on here. Bets on who the next celeb to step in as judge will be, and what little or nothingness they will say that really functions as true critique?
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler and muti-hyphenate celeb Jennifer Lopez announced one after another they were leaving ‘American Idol’ and will not return for a third season on the show. Speculation about potential new panelists has focused on Mariah Carey and former "Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert. Ryan Seacrest, the other original cast member, will continue as host for two more seasons. Randy Jackson, the only original judge in the show, is remains on the panel. Causing a stir among viewers or what?
It's time for Randy to go, give the show a chance to start from scratch with an all new panel. … I'm glad they are gone! Let's get the focus back on the singers, instead of the judges. … Randy needs to go. He's too pitchy. … The show is declining. It's a good blood bath for the show. Next randy needs to go. … Maybe I'll start watching AI again. I saw her a few times during the audition and she was not a good judge. I just don't care for her. Could not watch it with her. Steven Tyler wasn't good either.
I think that American Idol should have a judge from America that's not in the business who would bring a different perspective. … Time to shut it down, Simon. … Carrie Underwood, Katie Perry!, or CHER!! You've got to bring in the big guns after last year or it's over. … The show has lost it's relevency. The truly rare talents have ever increasing ways of being discovered, so what we're left with is a nation-wide popularity contest that has less and less to do with music. … Maybe it's just time for American Idol to take an exit.
Yes, JLo. Please leave the show. … All she is trying to do is hold out for more money. If you don’t want to do it then don’t. If you haven’t noticed, they are looking to replace her anyway. … Obviously she wanted another fat pay raise, and is getting resistance. … She can’t judge, she was fake with her emotions, she just used American Idol to relaunch her image. … She didn’t leave, she was fired, due to bad ratings, her endless self-promotions and pathetic judging skills.
