Sharon Osbourne on Grammy Awards controversy: ‘Everybody knew it was rigged’

Osbourne weighed in on recent allegations of sexual harassment and voting irregularities made by the chief executive officer of the Recording Academy of Arts & Sciences, Deborah Dugan (allegations the organization has denied, according to several news outlets)

The Talk co-host backed Dugan’s accusations of voting discrepancies, saying “everybody knew it was rigged.”

Dugan was suspended from her duties, she says, after voicing her concerns.

Osbourne further critiqued the organization, telling viewers that the Grammys are “run by middle-aged, white wannabes with no creative talent at all.”

She described the makeup of the board as both “power hungry” and “money hungry.”

“They obviously didn’t have great youths and they’re taking it out on everybody,” she added.
