SHARON OSBOURNE Explains OZZFEST 2004's Lack Of 'Alternative' Acts: 'We're Not Gay!'

"It's harder than hard, and my God, is it ugly," Sharon Osbourne said of the testosterone-fueled lineup of Ozzfest 2004 during today's press conference, according to Reuters.

Asked about the absence of more melodic, alternative rock acts, she said, "We're not gay!"

As the laughter died down, Rob Halford, the openly homosexual frontman for Ozzfest 2004 co-headliners JUDAS PRIEST piped up behind her, "I am."

"And proud," Sharon Osbourne said amid the renewed merriment.

The roster does include one female, Cristina Scabbia, the seductive singer with Italian metal band LACUNA COIL.

"I will keep my femininity, but I will be happy to share the energy and the passion," Scabbia said.
