Sharon Osbourne gets paid to judge who's got talent in America — and one person who lacks it is Paris Hilton, she tells Parade magazine.
The blond heiress has "a look that a lot of younger girls liked and copied but she has no talent," said Osbourne. "The timing was right for her. A lot of younger women looked up to her. She's a very sweet, nice girl. But that's it. Then you put a full stop. It's over. So I'd say Paris is infamous."
Osbourne, 56, who now judges "America's Got Talent" and helped start the reality TV trend with her series on MTV featuring husband Ozzy and children Jack and Kelly, has words of wisdom for future stars.
"I think that the younger generation thinks all they have to do is get on TV and act a bit crazy and things will happen for them. They've got it wrong, because you need to have a talent to get really famous.
"I would say beware of what you wish for, because with everything there's a downside. You give up a lot when you do become famous."
