Ageing rock matriarch Sharon Osbourne gave photographers at the VH1 DIVAS concert a fright when she flashed her breast at them.

Singer Ozzy Osbourne's wife, who has recently come through treatment for bowel cancer, pulled down her dress to deliberately show her right nipple as she walked down the carpet into Thursday's (23MAY03) televised show for the American TV network as compensation for not having time to stop and chat.

An eagle-eyed onlooker commented, "Sharon was rushing along the red carpet and apologising because she couldn't do interviews.

"But then she suddenly pulled down her top and flashed her breast. Nobody could believe what she had done. Her publicists looked horrified and quickly ushered her away but she had already done it. It was incredible."

Other names at the star-studded event included Celine Dion, Ashanti, Jewel and Mary J Blige.
