Kelly Osbourne: Purple Hair Contractually Required By 'Fashion Police'

Posted: Updated:

We've all gotten used to Kelly Osbourne's purple hair, a mainstay on E!'s "Fashion Police" since the host dyed it three years ago. As it turns out, Kelly's bosses at E! have taken to the bold color as well -- so much so that they've forbade her from changing it.

As Osbourne told a crowd at this week's Lucky FABB Conference:

"I'm contracted to this hair color... I can't change it for two years. I wanted to go green, but was told I wouldn't be able to work anymore."

She added that her color has gained her plenty of fans: "In England, I'm called queen of the granny girls and I love it!" Kel said. "My hair is a mix of gray, blue [and] lavender. It's hard to get this color; you have to have blond hair to get the right shade."

We wouldn't dare try.

The best part of the color, Kelly has said, is that she can wear it without being a granny at all. "To me, I'm 27 -- I've got three years left, the way I look at it, to have fun with it," she told CBS's "The Talk," "because once you're 30, you look like a right idiot walking around with like rainbow, bright color hair and all different things like that." As for now, she's the perfect age -- and in the perfect job -- to rock lavender stands.

What do you think: Are you a fan of Kelly's purpleish-gray hair?

Kelly's not the only star to have gone purple:
