Why We Never Hear About Ozzy Osbourne's Oldest Daughter, Aimee

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are famous thanks to his music career and her gig as co-host of The Talk, while their children, Jack Osbourne and Kelly Osbourne, are also well-known largely due to the family's former reality TV show. However, did you know there's a third Osbourne kid? Her name is Aimée Osbourne and she's actually following in her father's footsteps.

"After a long musical journey, Aimée ... is set to release her debut full-length album, Vacare Adamaré, under the moniker ARO," Consequence of Sound reported in October 2020. Although her dad makes music that leans on the harder side, Aimée has "embrac[ed] an ambient and atmospheric sound in the vein of Portishead, Kate Bush, and others." Listen to her album and you'll hear tunes that are "rooted in electronic and synth, with elements of rock and industrial thrown into the mix."

While having famous parents might have helped boost her profile if she had popped up on their show, CoS noted that, instead, "Aimée's path to her debut album is far from traditional." While the singer has been using the name ARO for around 10 years, "her family lineage came with certain expectations from music industry personnel, resulting in a number of starts and stops in her music career."

So, if Aimée is interested in a career in the spotlight, then why don't we hear about her as much as her family and why didn't she appear on her family's reality TV show?

Aimée Osbourne had a good reason for staying away from reality TV

From 2002 to 2005, fans watched the wild antics of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, as well as two of their children, on the family's reality TV show, The Osbournes. But where was their other child, Aimée? Was she not as entertaining as the rest of her relatives? Was she off living in another country? Was she at odds with her parents or siblings? Frankly, she claims there was another reason why she didn't appear on the show.

"For me, I had grown up around having a pretty well-known dad anyway, and ... I always really valued my privacy within that family," Aimée told Q1043 New York in August 2020. She added that, since she was just an adolescent at the time, she wanted to "give [her]self a chance to actually develop into a human being as opposed to just being remembered for being a teenager." She explained that being on the show "didn't really line up with what" she wanted for her future, but admitted, "It definitely worked great for the rest of my family, but for me, and who I am, I just knew it was never something that I would have been able to consider realistically."

Granted, although Aimée was hesitant to become famous as a teenager, she explained in 2020, "Weirdly, I think I was more mature then than I am now." She jokingly noted, "[I get] more ridiculous as I get older." Don't we all?!
