The Talk co-host Sharon Osbourne is talking smack about new daytime diva Kelly Clarkson's remake of a Christmas classic. Ms. Clarkson teamed up with R&B superstar John Legend to record a version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside," updating the non-consensual lyrics of the original.

Mrs. O. wasn't a fan of the revision. Though she made a recent appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, she said:

"It’s, to me, like a master painting. You go and see these beautiful nudes in museums all over the world, they’re spectacular. Would it be right for me to go and draw a bikini top on one of those nudes? It’s still an art form, it’s a piece of art.”

Sharon added:

"To change an innocent lyric, to what is it, ‘Your mind and your body?’ What the hell are you on? That’s ridiculous. I have to tell you, I love John Legend. I love John Legend’s wife, his family. He’s an amazing artist that I really respect. Why do you do this? That’s not right.”

Singer Dean Martin's daughter Deana recently complained on UK morning TV about the change; unsurprisingly, Piers Morgan also jumped on the bandwagon.
