Despite its squeaky-clean image, the Osmonds singing group has had its share of conflicts and problems. The new ABC movie "Inside the Osmonds," which airs tonight, examines the rise of the pop world's singing family, as well as the heartache behind its hit songs and fame. Jimmy Osmond, 37, the youngest of the clan, was an executive producer on the film that begins in 1970, after the Osmonds left "The Andy Williams Show" as regulars to become rockers while staying true to their Mormon values.

Donny's a little bit country, Marie's a little bit rock 'n' roll, and now Jimmy's a little bit . . . heavy metal ? OK, maybe Bon Jovi's more lite metal. Squeakie cleanie Jimmy Osmond, now 24, nabbed the superstar group to tape a Fuji Film commercial Thursday through Saturday in his family's old production studios in Orem, Utah, which he recently acquired.

THERE IS A THEORY ABOUT THE extinction of the Mayan Indians that should be of interest to Michael Jackson. The legend goes that they became so self-satisfied that they lapsed into staring in admiration at the symbol of the waterlily, which they had painted on the walls of their buildings. In the meantime, they neglected to tend the real waterlilies that fed the fish that fed their economy.

"Little girl" isn't always just a figure of speech in pop music. Few audiences at any kind of concert are as homogenous as the one that showed up to shriek along with the New Kids on the Block, currently riding high with a No. 1 hit, in the first of two shows Sunday at the Celebrity Theatre in Anaheim. Talk about narrowcasting: A good 80% of the full house was made up of screaming girls under the age of 16, caught up in a frenzied kind of puppy love largely unwitnessed since Donny Osmond was retired from lunch pails and book covers.
