Who is Aimee Osbourne? 

She's the eldest daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, and sister to Jack and Kelly, who you probably remember from a little MTV reality show called The Osbournes.

However, you won't recognize Aimee from the show, as she decided not to be a part of it and actually moved out of her family's home at 16 years old to avoid it.

According to Sharon on her CBS morning talk show, The Talk, Aimee was not on board with being a part of the reality show, which first aired in 2002 and ran for four seasons.

“I know that my eldest girl, Aimee, left home at 16 and she couldn’t live in our house because we were filming and it drove her insane. She felt, too, that she didn’t want to grow up on camera. She hated the idea, it was appalling to her. And so she left at 16 and I regret every day that she did,” Sharon Osbourne said.

However, there's no bad blood between Aimee and her family, and she ended up being in the spotlight anyway — she's since taken up an acting and singing career. The now 36-year-old is a singer/songwriter on the rise and doesn't regret her decision to not do The Osbournes.

In an interview, Osbourne explained, "I think, you know, when people say, 'Why the choice?' it didn’t even feel like, 'Should I or shouldn’t I?' It was just not my aspiration."

She went on to explain why she didn't want to grow up in front of the cameras: "Everywhere you went people wanted to know everything, and that when you’re growing up that can be kind of intimidating. The idea of kind of letting it all out there at that point, at around fifteen... Nobody at fifteen wants anybody to see how goofy their parents are."

Aimee, who also goes by the performing name ARO, actually just released a new single — her first one in four years. The new song is called, “Shared Something With the Night.”

People are swarming with questions about The Prince of Darkness's daughter, so here are a few things you should know about Aimee Osbourne.

Aimee Osbourne is a musician.

Although she once wasn't social media friendly, the songstress debuted this music video under the name ARO for her song, "Raining Gold," in 2015, which has since garnered 2.5 million views on YouTube.

In a 2015 interview, Osbourne described her music, saying, "The rest of the album is still very much kind of cinematic, haunting, and atmospheric feel. Some of the songs are a little heavier; some of the songs are bit more sweet, but still kind of spooky in a way."

Osbourne and her younger sister, Kelly, were once next door neighbors.

Osbourne and younger sister Kelly were once next door neighbors back in 2014, after Kelly bought the home next to Aimee's for 2 million dollars. But only a year later, both sisters put their neighboring West Hollywood homes up for sale.

Aimee Osbourne starred in another MTV production. 

Back in 2003, Osbourne appeared in an MTV production of Wuthering Heights, based on the classic novel by Emily Bronte. She starred alongside a few famous faces including Katherine Heigl (Grey's Anatomy), Erika Christensen (Parenthood), and Mike Vogel (Bates Motel).

Osbourne is not close to her siblings, Kelly and Jack.

In 2015, she admitted that while she's has gotten very close to her parents as an adult, she has a "rocky" relationship with siblings, Jack and Kelly. When asked about her siblings, she stated, "I wouldn't say there is an ease between us, but there is an acceptance. Do we socialize? No."

Before her acting and singing career, Osbourne managed to stay out of the spotlight, but Jack and Kelly were hard to miss, thanks to the reality show and their openness with discussing their past various drug addictions.

After Ozzy and Sharon's nasty (and temporary) split back in 2016 following rumors of infidelity, the normally quiet Aimee shared her feelings about the split by sharing a passage from the book, The Beautiful Disruption by GG Renee Hill, on her Instagram account.

The passage describes a woman who loved a man that could never quite love her back in the same way. His faults included manipulation, testing boundaries and not having the ability to give love.

Last fall, she was spotted out with mom Sharon shopping at Barney's New York. This was the most recent photo we had seen of Aimee in quite some time, as her Instagram account features almost no photos of herself.

Osbourne had emergency surgery.

In March 2020, Osbourne was rushed to the hospital to get emergency surgery done on her appendix.

On The Talk, Sharon Osbourne said, “We’ve been fine. I mean, you know compared to a lot of people, we’re doing just fine. But yesterday, Aimee was taken into hospital. She had an emergency operation to remove her appendix. I mean just the worst time to be in a hospital. We had that, she’s fine now, thank God. She’s out of pain, and she’s recuperating.”

Aimee Osbourne just released a new single.

For the first time in four years, Osbourne has released new music. Her newest single, “Shared Something With the Night,” is part of her upcoming album, Vacare Adamaré.

Of her new song, Osbourne revealed, “The song is like a My Bloody Valentine lullaby for the romantically tormented that struggle to sleep at night. I wrote it when I was living in New York and feeling pretty alone and lost. I hadn’t fully connected with who I really was and what that meant yet. Hung up on the outcome of someone else’s approval of me to determine my own self-worth. This weird little song was an outlet for a lot of uncomfortability at the time.” 

She also revealed that writing music is a "cathartic and fun experience" for her, saying she eventually plans to perform her new music: 

“I want the live show to feel like you’re on the haunted mansion ride at Disneyland, with a little Studio 54, a touch of vaudeville and a lot of Blade Runner. It will be ghostly and poetic with some neon and hypnotic laser lights to captivate all the senses.”

“As I grow as a person, so does the music I write. I have been in a really great place creatively and personally which helps. I am forever interested and drawn to the unusual and love to combine genres," she added.

"I definitely surprised myself with some of these new tracks. It was pretty exciting to be able to explore parts of myself creatively I didn’t realize were there. Literally, all I want to do is write and experiment, so I am very much looking forward to continuing to do that with some incredible people.”
