TV personality and fashion designer Kelly Osbourne reflects on lessons learned from her unconventional life and journey from "fucked up ugly duckling" to "lavender swan" in her signature shamelessly honest voice, now in paperback.
People ask Kelly Osbourne all the time: "What's your secret?"
Kelly may not always have been a typical role-model. Her perspective is hard-won after spending three decades in the spotlight: from growing up completely exposed to the heavy metal scene--replete with crazy antics most readers have only begun to hear about--to spending her teenage years as the wild-middle-child of an even wilder Ozzy Osbourne on the family's whacky eponymous reality show. Since then, Kelly has forged her own path as a style icon and powerful woman in media who isn't afraid to tell it like it is. But being the daughter of a music legend hasn't always been glamorous; while growing up Osbourne is an experience that Kelly wouldn't trade, there was a time when everyone and their mother--sometimes literally--had their minds made up about her. It's been a long and weary battle for this "ugly duckling," but to the all the haters, fans, skeptics, and admirers on the outside looking in, it seems like this transformation happened overnight. It didn't. There are battle scars and she is finally now ready to embrace and reveal their origins.
Told as a series of letters to people, places, situations, accusations, and liberations that make Kelly Kelly, THERE IS NO F*CKING SECRET gives readers an intimate look at the stories and influences that have shaped Kelly's highly speculated about life, for better or for worse. The stories will make readers' jaws drop, but ultimately, they will come away empowered to forge their own path to confidence, no matter how out of control it may be, and to learn the ultimate lesson: that there just is no f*cking secret. Oh, and also, no matter how deranged it is, it could always be worse--we could have all grown up Osbourne.
