Ozzy Osbourne’s daughter Aimée makes music like her father, but that’s about the only thing she has in common with him and her famous family. Osbourne is not like the rest of the Osbournes. As they air out their dirty laundry and let cameras fly on the wall The Osbournesher MTV reality TV show, she led a private life.
However, that doesn’t mean she’s a recluse. Osbourne is used to people staring at her sideways when she goes out, but thankfully that’s all changed since she started her music career.
Ozzy Osbourne’s daughter Aimée did not appear in ‘The Osbournes’
in 2002, The Osbournes Premiered on MTV. The reality TV show followed the daily lives of the Black Sabbath frontman, his former manager Sharon and their two children Jack and Kelly. Although there was another Osbourne.
Osbourne, who was 19 when the show premiered, chose not to appear because she wanted to remain a private person.
“I’m not a crazy depressed daughter who’s scared of the world and locks herself in her room all day; I just didn’t choose to do the show,” Osbourne said (per The Independent). “I want to be a singer and I felt like if I had stayed with the Osbournes and gone through with it, I would have been typecast straight away.
“[Mum] was injured and we definitely had a hard time disagreeing. I’m rather reserved and my private life is very important.”
Osbourne even had to move out of the house while filming the show.

Osbourne finds it ridiculous that people stare at her sideways when they look out
After finding work in the music industry with some of her mother’s friends, Osbourne began thinking about pursuing a music career. However, one that was completely different from that of her famous father.
Once she started recording music and performing, people stopped staring at her like she was an anomaly every time she went out in public.
Rolling Stone writes that people have misinterpreted their inclusivity for years. “It’s ridiculous,” she said. “I’m going to walk the dog with my mom and [people look at me] like ‘The insane got permission to go and is having tea with her mother.’”
However, her music career began to change people’s perception of her. “A lot of people have come up to me at different times and said, ‘Oh, you’re nice. I thought you must have been a recluse or something is wrong with you,” Osbourne said, laughing.
“I’m like, ‘No, well, maybe, but it’s not that bad.’ It’s nice to feel like I’m not always looked at from the side, like, ‘There’s the hidden one who doesn’t like to talk to anyone.’”

Osbourne releases music under ARO
When Osbourne was young, she was always writing poetry and stories. So songwriting came naturally to her. However, at the beginning of her career she wanted to remain anonymous.
Osbourne began releasing music under the name ARO (her initials) to avoid “the obvious associations” with her last name.
“I don’t think I will ever mix my personal and family life with my public and professional world,” she told Rolling Stone. “For me, nothing is more important than having a very clear boundary between the two. It’s just a part of me.”
Osbourne continued to distance herself from her family. Her music differs from her father’s music. In 2015, Osbourne released an avant-pop song called “Raining Gold”.
She told Rolling Stone that her influences range from singers like Kate Bush to Portishead. “I’ve always been drawn to music, movies, and people that are just a little bit unusual and a little bit haunting,” she said. “I don’t really see my music as anything other than ‘moody.’ I don’t know if that’s a genre.”
In 2020 she released her debut LP, Vacare Adamare. Osbourne may have gone into showbiz like her parents, but that doesn’t mean she’ll be any less private.
