"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": Sharon Osbourne on Justin Bieber, Ann Coulter's regrets

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • Sharon Osbourne on Justin Bieber: He needs a good slap

On Wednesday night, Piers Morgan welcomed one of the biggest couples in rock and reality TV: Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne.

The trio discussed topics ranging from maintaining a prolific music career to sustaining a sometimes rocky marriage. Speaking of an industry filled with such extreme highs and lows, Sharon was particularly keen on controversy surrounding teen singer Justin Bieber and his recent public delinquency.

“Successful, money, and youth is not a good combination. It never is,” Sharon told Morgan. “Very few people handle that situation well.”

Having raised two children, Kelly and Jack, in the volatile world of celebrity stardom (and daughter Aimee raised out of the spotlight), Sharon is certainly familiar with the temptations open to teens growing up in a perpetual spotlight.

Bieber, 19, has received a public flogging via media coverage for his recent outrageous behavior, but Sharon observed that it may take a more literal slap on the wrist to straighten the wayward pop star out.

“He needs someone to give him a good slap and a talking to, and bring him back down to the real world.”

  • Coulter's regrets

The ever-controversial and always entertaining Ann Coulter joined Piers Morgan in the host’s New York studio Wednesday night, and true to form, sharp banter was immediately flying between the two television personalities.

Glen Beck was a hot topic of the evening; “The Blaze” founder and famously ultra-conservative commentator recently made a surprising admission to Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, saying that his tenure at Fox News had had been dominated by polarizing rhetoric that played a role in “helping tear the country apart.”

With books like her newest “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3 – Especially a Republican,” Coulter, like Beck, is indeed notorious for her staunch beliefs and blunt conservative commentary. But don’t expect any apologies from this political pundit any time soon. When Morgan asked if she had any regrets, Coulter’s response was:

“In public? About politics? Absolutely, 100% not. Unless you're going to go back to when I was 14 and briefly was a libertarian.”

On the contrary, Coulter believes her only mistake has been being too “nice” to figures in both the Republican and Democratic parties.

“I was definitely too nice to Hillary Clinton,” the conservative commentator told Morgan.

And as for the Republican Party’s likeliest presidential golden-boy, Coulter lamented, “I think I was overly enthusiastic about Chris Christie without waiting to hear his amnesty position.”

    Coulter has no regrets because she wants to be seen as perfect – to believe herself to be perfect – as pointed out in the book, Vanity: Ann Coulter’s Quest for Glory, available at http://www.coulterwatch.com/vanity.pdf.

    Could someone get word to Piers Morgan
    that when he speaks out against gun violence
    he neglects to mention the 10 little Amish schoolgirls gunned down by a non-Amish man some years ago in Pennsylvania. If memory serves, it was one of the first such gun-violence horrors in the United States.
