Kelly Osbourne Reconfirms Sobriety With Touching ‘Top 9’ Instagram Post
Kelly Osbourne called 2019 a “hell of a year” in a post uploaded to her Instagram on Tuesday. Taking part in the Instagram “Top 9” trend that hit the social media site at the end of the year, Kelly got serious about her emotional and physical health.
In the post, Kelly created a collage of nine photos that seemed to hold special meaning for her. Some of the photos were glam selfies taken by the media personality that showed her with various shades of her signature purple hair. One photo showed Kelly with what seemed to be gray hair with lavender highlights, while another showed her with her current electric purple locks.
She sported her typical dramatic-eye makeup in many of the shots. Her look in most of the pics consisted of thick-winged eyeliner, false eyelashes and smoky eyeshadow. She also wore a full face, including bronzer, highlighter and filled-in brows. Usually, Kelly kept her lip color neutral, which made her eyes pop even more.
Other photos in her “Top 9” showed the singer posing with some of her fellow musicians. The center photo in the collage was a throwback of a young Kelly snuggling with her father, Ozzy Osbourne. She also posted another throwback of her walking arm-in-arm with Amy Winehouse. Fans of Amy or Kelly know that the two were close before the “Rehab” singer’s untimely death.
Kelly also included photos of herself at awards shows. She posted a red carpet picture of herself at the Emmy Awards from this year. She also showed off a pic of her with Post Malone at the American Music Awards.
Finally, Kelly included an image from what seems to be an app tracking her sobriety. It said “Twelve Steps” at the top and showed that she has been sober for two years. The reality star hit that milestone in August.
Accompanying her collage, Kelly penned a lengthy comment discussing how 2019 was a year of ups and downs for her. She said it had “been amazing” in terms of “self-growth” but also said that it was “gut-wrenchingly difficult.” She continued, discussing her emotional health and how the year showed her that she had to put herself — and her health — above that of others’. She celebrated about two and a half years of sobriety and confirmed that she was planning to take on 2020 as the “bada** sober woman I was born to be.” She then concluded by wishing her followers a Happy New Year and writing that she loved them.
Fans seemed to be supportive of Kelly’s resolve to treat herself better in 2020. Since going live two days ago, the upload has received almost 25,000 likes and close to 400 comments. Fans and celebrities alike took to the comments section to wish the star a happy New Year and to congratulate her on her newfound resolve and continued sobriety.
