"The Talk" co-host Sharon Osbourne, who is married to rocker Ozzy Osbourne, shared an unfavorable view of rapper Kanye West on Thursday, calling him "an average-looking guy with an average talent," reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker.
Osbourne’s comment was part of a backlash on the show against the rapper, who the publication says has "been even more boastful than usual while promoting his new album ‘Yeezus.’"
In one interview, West described himself as "No. 1 living and breathing rock star," the story notes, adding that he compares himself favorably with rock stars including Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison.
Said Sharon Osbourne, commenting on West’s not-exactly-humble media persona: "I think it’s his thing, he puts on this shtick."
She contrasted West’s approach with that of her heavy-metal spouse Ozzy, saying proudly: "My husband’s under the radar with no ego."
