Sharon Osbourne may have previously blasted Justin Bieber, but she has now defended the popstar, despite his recent arrests and legal troubles, saying that she realises that she's been a bit hard on him in the past.
Sharon appeared on US chat show The Talk yesterday (January 30) and despite blasting Biebs for thinking he's a bad boy over the summer, she's now said that her son Jack made her think about what she said and take it back.
“I know I have, I think been very hard on him - probably because of my experience in the industry seeing people come and go, and especially with pop music because it’s so disposable,” Sharon said.
“I was doing an interview with my son for Fuse [network] and he asked me about Bieber… and he said, ‘Mom, you’ve been very hard on him. Look at what we were doing at his age.’ And I thought, ‘You’re right,’” she added.

The new quotes come after Shazza O had previously said that Bieber wasn't aware of what race he is.
She told The Daily Beast back in July, when quizzed about Biebs: "I feel really bad for him. There’s this little kid with a huge dream, he’s cute, girls love him, and he wants to be a mean boy, and he’s about as mean as a f**kin’ kitten, and he’s trying to act out."
She continued: "It’s like p**sing in a bucket. It’s like, “Oh, we’re the bad boys!” F**k off! You don’t know what bad is. And I think that he’s lost, I really do. I think he doesn’t realise he’s white and not black, that’s a huge problem.
"And, at the point he’s at in his career, it’s so dangerous because we’ve seen it all before a million times. Where do you go when you’re a child entertainer and then you want to transition to be a man? Very few make it."
