Career Beginnings and TV Appearances
In 1991, Aimee appeared in a few documentaries and videos relating to her dad’s musical career, and in “The Joan Rivers Show” in the same year. She is also credited with appearances in two episodes of “The Howard Stern Show” (1998), “Intimate Portrait” (2002), “The Osbournes” (2002 and 2003) – in which she appeared with her face blurred out – and “Wuthering Heights” (2003) among others. In 2014, Osbourne lent her voice to a character in the 3D computer-animated movie “Postman Pat: The Movie.”
In the early 2010s, Osbourne started creating music with her band ARO, which is made up of her initials, band members including Billy Mohler on the guitar, Rene Arsenault on the keyboard, and Brendan Buckey on the drums. Unlike her father who mostly produces heavy metal songs, ARO predominantly recorded and released synth pop. Since its creation, ARO has made only three live show appearances – the first was in Union Pool, Brooklyn in April 2015, and the others were in Mercury Lounge, New York City, in the same month and The Echo, Los Angeles, in February 2016. Osbourne released her debut single, “Raining Gold” in 2015 and has revealed that she was at the time frustrated by the path her musical career was taking, which motivated her to write the song.
Osbourne has released a few other singles, including “I Can Change” and “Cocaine Style” both in 2016. In 2020, ARO recorded and released their debut single, “Shared Something with the Night” and in the same year “House of Lies.” The band released their debut studio album, “Vacare Adamaré” in October 2020. Osbourne has worked with a few record labels including Epic Records.

Rumors and Controversies
In an interview with “The Sunday Times,” Osbourne’s mom disclosed that her oldest daughter does not get along with her siblings Kelly and Jack. She stated that she dislikes the ‘flashy’ lifestyle her family leads. She also revealed that Aimee couldn’t live in their house during her youth, and left home at the age of 16 because her family was ‘filming and it drove her insane.’ In the past, the London native has expressed disinterest in appearing in her family’s show “The Osbournes” – her face has been blurred out in some of the show’s episodes. In a 2020 interview with Q104.3 New York radio station, Aimee revealed that she refused to show her face in the show because she was concerned about the exposure that her appearance in the reality show would bring, and wanted to make it big on her own.
