INJUSTICE OF THE WEEK: Anyone who follows music at all is perfectly aware that at any given time there are dozens (if not hundreds) of high-quality bands out there that deserve record contracts and radio airplay but unfortunately must make do with sparsely attended club/bar gigs and demoralizing day jobs. And it's a slap in the face to every one of those bands that Kelly Osbourne has a record contract and they don't.
Sure, it was cute when Kelly got to do a karaoke-level cover of "Papa Don't Preach" for the "Osbournes" soundtrack. And she's entertaining enough on the show. But awarding a full-length album to someone who has never demonstrated even the slightest hint of singing ability is exactly the type of decision that we can point to when analyzing why the music industry is expected to lose hundreds of thousands of dollars this year.
