There Is No F*cking Secret:
Letters From A Badass Bitch
by Kelly Osbourne
Book Review By: Lisa Lunney


People ask Kelly Osbourne all the time: "What's your secret?"

Kelly Osbourne may not always have been a typical role model, but no one can say that her perspective isn't hard won after spending three decades in the spotlight: from growing up completely exposed to the heavy metal scene--replete with crazy antics most readers have only begun to hear about--to spending her teenage years as the wild middle child of an even wilder Ozzy Osbourne, to the family's popular stint on their wacky eponymous reality show. Since then, Osbourne has forged her own path as a style icon and powerful woman in the media who isn't afraid to tell it like it is and be honest with her fans. But being the daughter of a music legend hasn't always been glamorous; growing up Osbourne is an experience that Kelly wouldn't trade, but there are battle scars, and she is finally now ready to embrace and reveal their origins.

Told as a series of letters to various people and places in her life, There Is No F*cking Secret gives readers an intimate look at the stories and influences that have shaped Osbourne's highly speculated-about life, for better or for worse. The stories will make readers' jaws drop, but ultimately, they will come away empowered to forge their own path to confidence, no matter how deranged and out of control it may be, and to learn the ultimate lesson: that there just is no f*cking secret.

I love Kelly Osbourne. How can you not love someone who only grew up with Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne? Kelly’s entire life was painfully exposed on live TV…She is one of the few that came out on the other side and is truly as badass as she proclaims.

She is such a fierce female. A true femme fatale. In the Hollywood world of cookie cutter females she takes a stand to be her true self.

Her memoir is written blog-style as letters to people and places. At 32, Kelly sounds every young-adult in the world who is out there saying "Adulting is hard." Kelly has had an ‘extreme life’ but she is ultimately relatable. She discusses gender and sexuality, rather modestly.

Kelly has a strong, brave voice that is so refreshing to find in this day and age. After learning more about her life, I love her even more. Live like Kelly - live for the day and what it brings.
