Sharon Osbourne Says U2 Gave Away ‘Mediocre Music’ for Free Because ‘No One Wants to Buy It’

Ever since U2 dumped their surprise album Songs of Innocence onto everyone’s iCloud accounts, reactions have ranged from pleased to outraged. Last night Fall Out Boy gave a tutorial on how to delete the album (something we did last week) and now Sharon Osbourne is voicing her opinion on the matter.

The always outspoken Osbourne matriarch is not impressed by U2‘s move, in case you were wondering.

In fact, she felt so strongly about it that she took to Twitter to go on a rant. It started with her saying what many have noted: “U2 you are business moguls not musicians anymore. No wonder you have to give your mediocre music away for free cause no one wants to buy it.”

Her last point, that no one buys U2’s music, could be argued with since U2 are one of the few bands who’ve relatively managed to retain their sales amid the music industry’s changing climate. Case in point: their last album in 2009 No Line on the Horizon moved 5 million units. Osbourne’s overall rant, however, suggests that she has more of a problem with the invasive delivery method of the album and Bono’s political persona.
