Osbourne Slams Pearl Jam For Becoming Soft
Sharon Osbourne insists the Ozzfest music festival remains true to its heavy metal history, while other bands such as Pearl Jam, have become too mainstream. The feisty wife of rocker Ozzy Osbourne, believes that while many acts have mellowed in their old age, hardcore rock fans are loyal purists, deserving of an appropriate line-up. She explains, "Love Pearl Jam. But Pearl Jam is now like (US retail chain store) the Gap crowd. The baggy trousers. "It's a date. It's nice, lovely music. You know, there is this whole other world out there. "But people are snobbish and don't want to mix with it. We love those people! We embrace them! They are as loyal as they can be."
