The blazing redheaded firecracker is finding herself up against devoted tween fans and their ringleader.
Sharon Osbourne has learned that you can’t talk trash about Justin Bieber unless you want to be put on blast by the Belieber army. Justin has responded to the “America’s Got Talent” judge’s critique putting down the 18-year-old heartthrob.
During an interview at the National Radio Conference in Sydney, Australia the Osbourne matriarch began by questions Justin’s sustainability, saying that he is “a really great little guy. But that’s his problem — he’s a little guy.”
“His fans are growing up, they’re 18, 19-year-olds now… they’re young women,” she said. “And he still looks like that little boy!”
Um...I’m pretty sure there are still a ton of 20 something year olds that still dance anytime “Boyfriend” comes on the KIIS FM. (Most right here in the Hollyscoop office.)
But, now that Sharon had dug a nice little hole for herself, why stop there? It’s never stopped her before.
“He needs some hair, or something,” she said. I just don’t think, from my gut — maybe my gut’s wrong because it’s not 100% — but I don’t think he’s going to stand the test of time.”
But – unlike President Obama - Beiber didn’t let this be a one-sided debate for long. He tweeted at his followers on Twitter, seemingly laughing at Sharon’s hesitations.

He added, that he was “working on something special.”

And, just in case fans and haters alike didn’t ‘catch on that he was in fact responding to Sharon’s doubts, he posted a tweet linking to his new video “Beauty and a Beat” that included her name.

The viral video has already generated over 20 million views. In other words, Justin’s “not worried” about fading out.
But, even if he disappeared from the spotlight tomorrow, Sharon wouldn’t shed a single tear for the youngster.
“I don’t feel sorry for him, because he’s made oodles and he’s a fabulously nice person and he’ll go on to do something else,” she said.
Yeah, like buy up whatever company Sharon’s working for at the time and fire her.
