Joan Rivers Gives Her Invaluable Input on Lady Gaga + Osbourne Family Feud

Joan Rivers is inserting her surgically enhanced nose into the hypocritical war of words between Kelly Osbourne, her mom Sharon Osbourne and Lady Gaga. Because if you didn’t care before, we bet you do now, right?

… Right?

Rivers, who co-hosts ‘Fashion Police’ with the younger Osbourne, thinks Gaga is missing the point of the show: to make fun of famous people wearing expensive clothes.

“‘Fashion Police’ is a comedy show; anyone that comes out of an egg should figure that out,” she snapped to ‘Entertainment Tonight’ (quotes via Us Weekly). While the “comedy” aspect of the show, which barely elicits a smirk from anyone with over two brain cells, let alone a laugh, is debatable, we do approve of this burn. Gaga, get the aloe.

Rivers added that Gaga needs to “Lighten up and focus on more important issues.”

Of course, the whole point of Gaga’s original open letter to Kelly was to draw awareness to bullying. And, you know, to herself, because that’s the only reason she does anything. Gaga was responding to an interview Kelly gave claiming that Gaga’s fans were horrible to her. (Because, you know, Lady Gaga can control and monitor every single thing anyone who likes her reductive music does, right?)

Kelly’s mom, Sharon, got into the mix, saying Gaga’s deliberate ignorance of animal cruelty is just as bad as the “bullying” Kelly does on her show, which is part of “real life.”

Gaga responded to Sharon on Facebook (via Digital Spy), writing, “The ‘real world’ can be cruel, why not try to change it into a better place? I am an activist. Nobody takes adolescents seriously, I do. My letter to Kelly Osbourne was open, because her statements on cyber-bulling were public & as a youth activist I’m compelled to be involved.”

Does no one else see that the real irony in all of this is that no one involved in this ‘Fashion Police’-fueled feud knows how to dress themselves?
