Papa don’t preach, but he will f—in’ introduce.
Kelly Osbourne will sing “Papa Don’t Preach” at the 2002 MTV Movie Awards following an introduction by her for-now-only-slightly-more-famous father, Ozzy.
The spike-haired teen and swearing starlet will make her debut live performance by belting out her version of Madonna’s ’80s pop classic at L.A.’s Shrine Auditorium as part of the televised celebration of cinema.
Osbourne matriarch Sharon first suggested that Kelly try her hand at the 1986 tune (see “Kelly Osbourne’s Ready For Her Closeup With ‘Papa Don’t Preach’ Video” ), and with some production help from her brother Jack, Kelly recorded a rough demo version of “Papa Don’t Preach” backed by members of Incubus. She later gave the tune another go, setting the second, more polished (and Incubus-free) version for inclusion on the forthcoming The Osbournes Family Album collection (see “Osbournes Reveal F—ing Family Album“ ).
Kelly will hit the Movie Awards stage after completing her duties as pre-show co-host, a job she will share with Ja Rule. Kelly’s fellow musical performers at the 2002 MTV Movie Awards will be the White Stripes and Eminem.
Ben Affleck, Vin Diesel, Eve and Natalie Portman are just a handful of the Hollywood denizens confirmed to present at the awards, while Jack Black and Sarah Michelle Gellar will host.
Though several movies have been nominated in a variety of categories, “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” is perched for a potential sweep with six nominations of its own (see “‘Lord Of The Rings,’ ‘Fast And The Furious’ Top MTV Movie Award Nominees” . The winners will be determined by MTV, MTV2 and MTV.com viewers, who were able to cast their votes online and via telephone.
The 2002 MTV Movie Awards premieres June 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
