It's become a war of words between Kelly Osbourne and Lady Gaga.  Both have been publicly criticizing each other, and now Sharon Osbourne is playing protective mother via daytime TV.

Kelly Osbourne recently revealed that she's been the subject of death threats from Gaga's fans because of comments she's made on her E! talk show Fashion Police about the singer's looks.  Kelly has remarked on Lady Gaga's recent weight gain, and even speculated that Mother Monster might be pregnant.

Gaga defended herself and her fans in an open letter on her website, disparaging  the superficiality of Fashion Police, which caused host Joan Rivers to advise the singer to find something more important to focus on.

But the harshest backlash has come straight from Sharon Osbourne who took to her daytime TV show The Talk to let Gaga have it.
