    Sharon Osbourne launches foul-mouthed rant at 'megalomaniac' U2 for giving away 'mediocre' album



    Sharon Osbourne has launched a vicious attack on U2, calling their music so “mediocre” that no-one would buy it.

    The former X Factor judge – who manages husband Ozzy – said they are “business moguls” and not musicians after giving away their new album for free with Apple. The Dublin rockers agreed a deal with Apple to give Songs of Innocence to more than half a billion people for free through iTunes.But Sharon – who called the band, as well as Apple “a bunch of megalomaniacs” – said: “U2 you are business moguls not musicians anymore.


    “No wonder you have to give your mediocre music away for free cause no one wants to buy it. Guys nothing is for free, how much you making?”Furious Sharon added that they are now “just a bunch of middle age political groupies” – in a dig at Bono’s charitable work. She added: “Whose political ass are we going to pull you out of today? Or are you front row at another tragic fashion show?” In a foul mouthed Twitter rant, Sharon ended by telling the band they should “f**k off”.

    Not that Sharon Osbourne needs anything to rant about but... Lots of people who had the automatic downloads feature enabled on their Apple equipment got the damn thing whether they wanted it or not, and to make matters worse they couldn't even delete it. Apple have had to set up a dedicated removal page for people to get rid of it.

    Wow so that explains why I have a U2 album on my iPad that I definitely did not buy. I thought someone had hacked into my account - someone with really shit taste!

    Well, just from what tiny amount I've read (I don't have an iPhone, and never will), she's right. Lots of people are bitching about it. Most are saying,"Oh great, yeah, free album by U2 that they couldn't get rid of if they gave it away!" Which they just now did. Sort of a Grandma's Christmas gift: their hearts may have been in the right place, but nobody wants it and it can't be regifted.

    She's right about the U2 thing. I couldn't figure out why the hell it was on there, I even have manual sync set up on my iphone because I have wayyy too much music to fit on it, and the damn thing still ended up there. What the hell?

    Haha, original iPhone from the dinosaur ages didn't have that problem either! I've never liked U2.

    I have that album only because of the brilliant Brian Eno production. I haven't listened to it for about 20 years though.

    It's sitting there in the "recently added" section but hasn't been downloaded on my iphone 5s and will not be. Bono can suck it!

    I resent the fact that I didn't have a choice to download.
