Because Pop & Hiss knows you really care, we wanted to bring you the latest in the ongoing Osbourne-Gaga tiff.

In the newest round of score-settling, Sharon Osbourne has been using her Facebook page to dress down Lady Gaga for remarks that Lady Gaga madeĀ  about Sharon's daughter Kelly. This followed an earlier bout of acrimony after Kelly in a magazine interview called Gaga's fans "the worst." The tiff started years ago and ramped up over remarks Kelly once made about Gaga's apparent weight gain.

"I am calling you a bully because you have 32 million followers hanging on your every word and you are criticizing Kelly in your open letter," Sharon wrote, going public. Indicating that she had contacted Gaga's management to complain, Mama O went on: "I reached out to him as Kelly's manager and mother to ask him if you could address your 'little monster' fans and stop them from writing libelous, slanderous and vile comments about my family, including death threats to Kelly."

Sharon Osbourne's posting was a response to Gaga's response to Kelly's interview comments. Gaga, founder of a charity that seeks to prevent bullying, had urged Kelly to "take responsibility and accountability" by setting an example for her adolescent followers.
