Sharon Osbourne Slams U2's Free Album 'Songs Of Innocence' On Twitter, Brands Group 'Middle Aged Political Groupies'

Sharon Osbourne has hit at out U2, following the release of their free album.

The group unveiled their latest collection ‘Songs of Innocence’ last week, with iTunes users discovering - to either their delight or contempt - that the album had made its way into their music library free of charge, though Sharon has criticised the way the band released their latest album.

The former ‘X Factor’ judge has hit out on Twitter, posting a lengthy tirade where she claimed that if the album had been better quality, they wouldn’t have felt the need to make it available for free.

She wrote:

Sharon also branded the group “middle age political groupies” and “a bunch of megalomaniacs” before concluding: “F*** YOU!”

You see, the problem with Sharon is that she simply needs to learn how to form an opinion, doesn’t she?


Let’s face it, if anyone knows talent it’s Sharon Osbourne. She is, after all, the one who helped Louis Walsh find Wagner on ‘The X Factor’ back in 2010. The world of music would have been a dark place without him, right?

Sharon recently took to Twitter to dismiss the idea that she wasn’t fully committed to her duties as godmother to ‘X Factor’ winner Sam Bailey’s newborn baby, writing that she “couldn’t wait to be a godmother”, adding: “I’m taking it very seriously.”

Anyone hoping to hear more of Sharon’s strong views is in luck, as it was recently reported that she was joining the ‘Loose Women’ team, alongside Penny Lancaster, Gloria Hunniford and Judy Finnigan.
