Ozzy Osbourne's colourful daughter KELLY is to add her voice to a controversial short film about CHARLES MANSON - as Sharon Tate's puppet.

Osbourne has signed up to take part in Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong's quirky new Claymation project, in which Manson, voiced by GREEN DAY'S BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG, leads a group of lost survivors in the days after a nuclear holocaust.

But her choice of role is sure to meet with controversy - actress Tate was brutally murdered by Manson's eerie cult THE MANSON FAMILY in 1969.

Tim Armstrong, who will narrate and produce the short LIVE FREAKY! DIE FREAKY!, will concentrate on the quirky film project once Rancid complete dates on the VANS WARPED TOUR in America later this summer (03).

The movie is scheduled to hit theatres in December (03) and will be released on DVD in February 2004.

Other members of the cast include BLINK-182 drummer Travis Barker, GOOD CHARLOTTE star Benji Madden, and former MARILYN MANSON Bass player Twiggy RAMIREZ.
