Sharon Osbourne is undeniably a force to be reckoned with and a woman of many talents.

1. Music Manager

Sharon’s father, Don Arden was a music promoter and entrepreneur so she definitely has music management in her blood. He was the manager of Black Sabbath which is how and why Sharon met her husband Ozzie (John Osbourne) when she was just 18 years old.

After Ozzie was fired from Black Sabbath in 1979, Sharon took over the management duties and helped Ozzie to launch an extremely successful career as a solo artist.

2. Management

Success as a Music Manager gave Sharon the confidence to branch out further, managing a host of different artists including Motorhead, Gary Moore, Coal Chamber and The Smashing Pumpkins.

Among some of the notable artists she turned down are allegedly Courtney Love and Guns N’ Roses.

3. Television

The career and fame of the entire family really took off when one of the original TV reality shows hit the screens – The Osbournes. It followed the daily life, trials and tribulations of the family.

It was Sharon who instigated the whole thing and negotiated about the screening of the show with MTV – helping to raise the profile of her heavy metal husband to iconic status.
