Kelly Osbourne: I’m taking back the word ‘bitch’

Larry King NowMay 12 '17

The subtitle of Kelly Osbourne’s new book is ‘letters from a badass bitch,’ she says, because after years of having the term thrown at her for staying true to herself, she’s decided to take the word back.

Larry King: Her new book, ‘There Is No F-king Secret: Letters From a Badass Bitch.’ Are you a badass bitch?

Kelly Osbourne: The reason I say that-

Larry King: Come on.

Kelly Osbourne: The reason I say this is because I’ve been called a bitch so many times, for standing up for what I believe in, for staying true to my morals, for just being myself, with no bad intention. No ill will towards anybody. And that’s the first thing that people said, that I was a bitch. And if me doing those things and being me makes me a bitch, then yeah, I’m the biggest bitch in the world. And I want to change your perception of what you think the word “bitch” means. Because there are three things that men will say to you. They will call you crazy, they will call you a bitch, and they will call you the c-word, when they really want to hurt you. So it’s about owning that and taking it back and turning it on its head.
