type:

Current Status:
In Season
performer:
Kelly Osbourne
genre:
POP

We gave it a C+

If only Kelly Osbourne had teamed up with Buzz Osbourne and the Melvins for a cover of ”Over the Rainbow.” Instead, with Papa Don’t Preach, we get this take on Madonna’s ode to teen pregnancy (best not to read too much into that one), with Kelly backed ably but unimaginatively by two members of Incubus. She sings okay (although her voice is buried in the mix and masked by a distorting vocal effect), but this unnecessary quickie reeks of opportunism.
