Did Kelly Osbourne Make A Tasteless Joke About Jennifer Lopez On The Oscars Red Carpet?

Kelly Osbourne, never one to refrain from speaking her mind, was covering the Oscars red carpet for E! last night and made a controversial remark about Jennifer Lopez‘s impressively hideous Zuhair Murad gown. Stylist Jessica Paster and ringwraith Giuliana Rancic discussed the dress with appropriate civility, while Osbourne offered up her take:

“It’s kind of like if she was hosting the Latin Grammys — like what she would wear as her wow dress.”

Rather than speculate over your reactions, we’re letting this poll take it away:

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

      I understand how it can be taken that way, but I think was more elitist than anything. As if she believes the Latin Grammys to be the cheap thrift shop of award shows. I guess that may still be construed as racist to some though.

      • Question

        Could someone explain to me how the Latin Grammy’s aren’t racist? We have the Grammy’s where anyone can win and then we have the Latin Grammy’s for Latino/a’s…

      • Cee

        In how many categories do you hear Spanish singers on the Grammys? How many Spanish singing Rock bands were nominated this year in the Rock category, or Spanish singers in a country album, or nominated for album of the year? NO Ricky Martin, Shakira or J-lo singing in ENGLISH do not count.

        The Grammys are awards handed to many genres in ENGLISH, save for a foreign category or two. Spanish, like all other world music has genres in THEIR languages that need to be recognized too, you know.

      • Question

        As usual you fail to see thee point. What I am saying is they CAN be recognized and win at the Grammys since it encompasses everyone. Can the same be said for the Latin Grammys?

      • Cee

        As usual? How many times have I “spoken” to you?

        The Grammys encompass everyone…singing in English. Save for a category or two. Gospel..all English, Jazz..all English, Country..all English, Pop..all English and so on.

        There are very limited categories in which Latino/Latina..heck..Russian, Italian, Portuguese, French singing in their OWN language can win, yet there are SO many singers that sing in those languages in many categories, here and abroad. If the Grammys included singers from all around the world and fairly nominated a couple from each country we’d require a whole day to award properly and a shitload of translators.

        There are Latin and European MTV awards, World music awards and loads of many others that award the vast array of music done in languages OTHER than English. Has your ethnocentric mind grasped this? The Latin Grammys just happen to be Latin response to the Grammys as there are many singers and vast genres that the Grammys ignore because they are geared more towards English singers.

        When a Spanish singer/band win for best album, best new artist, best rock band and song, hip hop album, best pop album…where no song was sang or translated to English, you can write a complaint letter to the Latin Grammys.

      • Cee

        Also, Question..did you know that there are Latin/French/Japanese/Italian/Brazillian/Turkish/Greek versions of most of your favorite magazines, such as Vogue, Cosmo and People? GASP! How racist of them to do this! They can see Salma Hayek on page three of AMERICAN Cosmopolitan and its just the same, right?

      • Question

        Do you think I’ve never seen your comments before? It doesn’t have to be me you’re “speaking” to.
        Also, don’t you understand sarcasm?

      • Cee

        I do understand sarcasm. You just realized your comment was stupid and now are running with “I was being sarcastic” as your defense.

        Also,thank you for following me! Nice to know I have an admirer! :)

      • Question

        Nope, wasn’t my comment that I realized was stupid….

      • Cee

        Since you seem to follow my comments around, and according to you, I am stupid, I wonder what it makes you…:) Have a nice day! (Especially if it includes more following me around)

    • Linda

      It wasn’t a great thing to say regardless. Demeaning and not funny. That being said, why does someone who’s as naturally gorgeous as JLo try so hard to look so tacky.

    • janet

      Why are we ever surprised that Kellie Osbourne says stupid things…..she is the least qualified person in the world to be reviewing fashion….she rarely gets it right herself……

      • Kj

        Exactly! They had her as a judge on Project Catwalk (aka Lame British Project Runway) and I was like, Whyyyy?! She didn’t have anything good to contribute at all.

        Also, maybe it’s just because I like sparkly/borderline tacky things, but I think JLo’s dress is alright.

    • Ally

      Latin Awards > most awards > Kelly Osbourne. Since when is she allowed to critique fashion? Girlfriend is the poster child of a person with horrible fashion sense.

      Man, I am usually pretty thick-skinned about this stuff, and it’s not like I’m saying that it’s the MOST cruelly racist thing ever said about my race, but come on. It’s still offensive in the sense that she’s basically saying “hispanic/latin people are totally cool with this kind of ugly.”

      How does a hideous dress somehow point to her ethnicity?? Kelly! Brown people like pretty things too!

    • Cassie

      lmao! “ringwraith Giuliana Rancic”
      hahahaha

    • Cameron A.

      Lopez might as well wear something “wow” since her career is dull

    • Tiego Sosa

      The comment has a rasist element to it. i cant figure out how the dress (which is hot) being tacky according to Kelly, point to “Latin Grammys”.. Is she degrading the ceremony? Why does ethnicity come to mind? It’s ignorance.

      However, I forgive Kelly because i know she doesn’t mean any harm. How can u not love any osbourne? I’m Latino btw..

    • Niki

      Surprise surprise, Kelly Osbourne continue to makes ignorant remarks on anything and everything.

      • Niki

        I forgot to add – this is just one in a long line of horrifically ignorant comment from her. Anyone remember Kelly’s transphobic comments about “trannies” and “chicks with a dick?” How her ex-fiance would never cheat on her with ‘an ugly girl’? Or her attacks on Christina Aguilera for her weight gain?

        She is vile and hasn’t grown up a bit since The Osbournes was on air.

    • But

      Look at the dress though, it does seem like a Grammy’s dress and Jennifer is Latin.. it’s not a big deal. Since when did people become so sensitive?

    • Sam

      Jennifer Lopez in Latina, yes. But she also sings in English, and has received nominations for the same amount of awards in the Grammys as the Latin Grammys. So…why would this need to be considered her “Latin Grammys” dress?

    • Richo

      Settle down u 2 cats, don’t be so up tight

    • BETTYEJ

      I don’t care for the dress because it makes her look like a fat cow. But Kelly and her Mom need to both STFU, because neither one of them know nothing about nothing.

    • andres

      Who TF is Kelly Osbourne??????? Why is this stupid and worst “singer” ever even taking about fashion??? who was the idiot who let her be there on E! ???? she is a horrible girl, who used to wear stupid clothes with no fashion style whatsoever and now she is there taking about fashionmWTF!

    • Lisa

      The dress is ugly and JLo is a talentless hack. The only person less talented than JLo is Kelly Osborne.
