The Word: Kelly Osbourne takes it to Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera performed during the Michael Forever concert in Wales on Oct. 8.

So, by now you’ve probably seen the photos of poor Christina Aguilera at the Michael Jackson tribute concert earlier this month. If not, here is one I am regrettably reprinting for you. (My feminist and gossip sides are at odds again, with the side that gets the paycheck once again winning.)

Anyway, I think we can all agree she doesn’t look her best. But girlfriend did just go through a divorce, and if you listen to the clip of her performance, she absolutely killed it — so maybe we should give her a pass this time around.

But Kelly Osbourne does not agree. Osbourne clearly hasn’t gotten over the teasing she claims to have received from Aguilera over the years about her weight, and she’s using her E! show, “Fashion Police,” to get some payback.

“She called me fat for years. I was never that fat,” Osbourne commented while showing the  unflattering Aguilera photos.  Her co-host, Joan Rivers, also got in on the act, adding, “Lady Marmalade got into the peanut butter again.”

And just when you thought Hollywood wasn’t just a huge, bizzaro version of your high school, you read this and realize it very much is. But it’s just so much worse.

Lohan (finally) gets serious

With a court date set for tomorrow that could net her a year in jail for failing to comply with her community service sentence, Lindsay Lohan is trying to make up for lost time, according to Radar Online. “Lindsay performed community service every single day this past week at the Red Cross, and has been spending the bulk of the weekend fulfilling her therapy and shoplifter’s course requirements.
She is extremely focused on her court-ordered obligations,” her rep says. The actress had been let go from one of her programs because she “violated the rules,” “blew off nine scheduled visits,” and “she would often bail after working there for only an hour,” a source tells TMZ.
