Sharon Osbourne Talks Double Mastectomy
It's no secret that breast cancer is one of the biggest threats to female health these days, and Sharon Osbourne wasn't taking any chances after she found out she's a carrier of the BRCA gene.
According to a report, the former "America's Got Talent" judge immediately ordered a double mastectomy to eliminate the possibility that she could contract the disease.
Osbourne explained, "As soon as I found out I had the breast cancer gene, I thought, 'The odds are not in my favor.' I didn't want to live the rest of my life with that shadow hanging over me."
"It's not a 'pity me' [situation]. It's a decision I made that's got rid of this weight I was carrying around," she added.
She's never been one to keep her opinions to herself, and S haron Osbourne recently had plenty to say when asked about American teen pop sensation Justin Bieber .
During her interview in Sydney, Australia, the "Talk" co-host expressed concern for the "As Long As You Love Me" singer's potential for longevity.
Sharon began, "Justin is a really great little guy. But that's his problem- he's a little guy. His fans are growing up, they're 18, 19-year-olds now."
"They're young women, and he still looks like that little boy. He needs some hair, or something… I just don't think, from my gut - maybe my gut's wrong because it's not 100% - but I don't think he's going to stand the test of time."
She added, "But you know what, I don't feel sorry for him, because he's made oodles and he's a fabulously nice person and he'll go on to do something else."
In response, Justin kindly took to Twitter to address the comments made by the Mrs. Ozzy Osbourne, writing, "Doubt me….I like it. Not worried Sharon."
