KELLY OSBOURNE Says It Is Hard To Live Up To Her Family's Rock Legacy

Kelly Osbourne, who recently performed at a concert in London with her father, Ozzy Osbourne, says that her next album will see her going in a whole new direction from her first CD, which she says was a lost cause because she was so young.

"To fill the shoes of rock and roll because of the family I have, is a really hard thing," she said in an interview with AP Radio. "That's not really my deal. I don't really like rock. I like '80s pop. I really went in an '80s direction this time."

The album, which is the follow-up to 2002's "Shut Up" (reissued in 2003 by Sanctuary as "Changes") is being recorded with some help from songwriter Linda Perry (who has previously collaborated with Pink and Christina Aguilera, among others) and The Matrix, the songwriting/production team responsible for hits by Avril Lavinge, Britney Spears and Hilary Duff.
