Sharon Osbourne is not a fan of John Legend and Kelly Clarkson’s rerecording of “Baby It’s Cold Outside.”
The two pop stars took out the controversial lines and replaced them with more appropriate ones.
In the original song, many listeners have claimed lyrics reference date rape. Some of the controversial lyrics include: “I ought to say no, no, no, sir / “Mind if I move in closer?” and “Say, what’s in this drink? / No cabs to be had out there.”
In their new version, Clarkson sings, “I’ve got to go away,” and Legend responds, “I can call you a ride.”
Later, the lyrics are, “What will my friends think? / I think they should rejoice,” and “If I have one more drink? / “It’s your body, and your choice.”
During The Talk on Monday, November 4, host Sharon Osbourne revealed she is not impressed.
“To change an innocent lyric, to what is it, ‘Your mind and your body?’ What the hell are you on? That’s ridiculous,” the TV personality, 67, said. “I have to tell you, I love John Legend. I love John Legend’s wife, his family. He’s an amazing artist that I really respect. Why do you do this? That’s not right.”
