Sharon Osbournewent afterJohn Legend and Kelly Clarkson for re-recording the song Baby Its Cold Outside.
The Voice coaches announced last week that theyrerecording a new version of the 1944 classic, written by Frank Loesser, after some say its lyricshave grown problematic over the years over the notion of consent.
But Osbourne said on The Talk Monday that the notion of rewriting problematic songs is ridiculous.
What would John Legend do, if in 40 years, if somebody wanted to re-record one of his songs, and there was some group that found it offensive, and somebody just went, Oh, I can change the lyrics on that, she said.

Its, to me, like a master painting, Osbourne argued. Its a piece of art.
The 67-year-oldtook issue with a specific lyric that was revealed in a sample of the song released by the musicians. Instead of the song being about an overly persistent male suitor trying to convince a reluctant woman to spend the night with him, Clarkson sings: What will my friends think?... If I have one more drink?
Its your body, and your choice, Legend replies.
To change an innocent lyric, to what is it, Your mind and your body?What the hell are you on? Thats ridiculous, Osbourne exclaimed. I have to tell you, I love John Legend. I love John Legends wife, his family. Hes an amazing artist that I really respect. Why do you do this? Thats not right.
The segment concluded with Osbourne declaring that one simply shouldnt re-record a song that they actively dislike, to which most of her co-hosts agreed.

Last year, a Cleveland radio station, WDOK, withdrew the song from its lineup after a listener expressed concern over the standards lyrics.
It wasnt really our decision, WDOK host Desiray told Fox 8 at the time. Its the decision of our listeners.
She continued: People might say, Oh, enough with that #MeToo, but if you really put that aside and listen to the lyrics, its not something I would want my daughter to be in that kind of a situation. The tune might be catchy, but lets maybe not promote that sort of an idea.
Meanwhile, criticism of the song drew backlash from some, with actorDennis Quaid saying it was going a little far to call it problematic, and Dean Martins daughter, Deena, saying she was absolutely flabbergasted that critics wanted the number scrapped.

The song will be featured on Legends forthcoming expanded version of A Legendary Christmas: The Deluxe Edition, which will drop on Nov. 8. Clarkson featured the traditional version of the song on her Christmas album Wrapped in Red in 2013.
