Kelly urges press to leave Sharon Osbourne alone because she believes the star deserves respect for her business endeavors, not her look.

has defended her mother after she was targeted by a tabloid over her appearance, insisting the rock matriarch's success doesn't depend on her looks. The "" judge was criticized over a set of unflattering photographs which showed her wearing baggy blue jeans and no make-up in May.

Kelly is fuming over the furore and she's urged the press to "leave mum alone" - because she believes the star deserves respect for her business endeavors. In her column in Britain's Closer magazine, Osbourne writes, "Last week a tabloid printed some pictures of my mum when she was out at a family dinner and said some not-so-nice things about her appearance."

"She's 57 years old (you don't look a day over 40, Mum!) and she's a mother, a wife and a businesswoman - she's not trying to be a fashion model! Her job has never relied on her appearance, so why do people think they've got the right to comment on it? My mum makes a living from using her brain, not her looks."
