Whats Poppington: Kelly Osbourne For Fault Mag Fall 2012

So I’m a few days late, six to be exact, on the Kelly Osbourne spread by Fault Mag. I’ve been sleepy after work so I do apologize to my readers, but I promise I will get back on my grind. Any who, Kelly Osbourne looks A-MAZ in this spread for the cover she is wearing super long stilleto nails that creates a strong editorial border line avant gaurd look. I’m proud of her and it feels good to say that she is a style maven and quite a bossy little chic.

On how her mother helped shape her into the women she has become
My mother helped me identify myself the way the world would identify me. Bloodlines didn’t matter as much as how I would be perceived” — as beautiful but also as a black woman in a world in which the images of beautiful, successful black women were notably absent.

On being mixed race
Being biracial is sort of like being in a secret society. Most people I know of that mix have a real ability to be in a room with anyone, black or white.

On her beauty and self-esteem
Just because they see my face doesn’t mean they see me. A person’s self-esteem has nothing to do with how she looks. If it’s true that I’m beautiful, I’m proof of that. Self-esteem comes from who you have in your life. How you were raised. What you struggled with as a child.

On why she is grounded
I come from humble beginnings. I always felt like the underdog. Behind the eight ball. I learned not to be too high on the hog. Even that night I won the Oscar, I had a fundamental knowing, it was just a moment in time. Driving home that night, back to my house, I felt like Cinderella. I said, ‘When this night is over, I’m going back to who I was.’ And I did.

On being hounded by paparazzi day in day out
They’re outside my house every morning, I get it about the celebrity stuff. It’s part of my job to recognize that there’s a certain part of my life the public wants to hear about. But it’s not okay that they’re doing terrible things to my daughter. One night, after they chased us, it took me two hours just to get her calmed down enough to get to sleep.

On why she hasn’t been able to find the right partner
God just wanted to mix up my life. Maybe he was thinking, ‘This girl can’t get everything! I’m going to give her a broken picker.

On why she so desperately wants to move out of America
I can’t grow my daughter in L.A. You take a little child who is just trying to learn about the world and have all these people with cameras chasing after her, calling things out to her about her mother. It’s starting to make her feel special and different. I want her to feel special and different, but not for the reason of being my child.

On what she would do if she didn’t have the press in her face for a day
I’d go to the market with my daughter. Go to Santa Monica Pier and take her on a ride. Nothing special. Just live some normal life for once
