Kelly Osbourne: 'My Mum Had Me Put in a Padded Cell'

Kelly Osbourne strikes a pose on the cover of Cosmopolitan UK magazine’s September 2013 issue, on newsstands August 8.

Here’s what the 28-year-old Fashion Police correspondent had to share with the mag:

On staying true to herself: “I can’t lie; it’s been hard having people say, ‘You’re fat’, and, ‘You’re a beached whale’. But I’ve been judged since I popped out, and I’ve never known anything else. What’s been great is overcoming that and understanding that these people are just idiots who hurt your feelings because they want a reaction. I’m proud of proving them wrong.”

On her past addiction issues: “I’ve been to rehab seven times and to two mental institutions. My mum even had me put in a padded cell once to scare me, but like a brat I just sat it out until she said, ‘Well, that’s not going to work’. But what I’ve learned is that no amount of therapy or medication is going to work unless you want it to. Until you want to be a good person, you will never be one.”

On what made her get help: “What changed for me was looking around and seeing that nobody liked me or wanted to work with me.”
